2017-06-08 Recovery Day 94

Today’s good news, comes from the spine surgeon. You may recall yesterday’s E/R suggestion of the possibility that during the spine surgery, a nerve being nicked by all that metal that was added. The surgeon call at lunch, after having reviewed not only yesterday’s X-rays but also the last set taken before being released from Alta Bates Summit MC. He had only good news about the surgery, how well the hardware is aligned, the bones are all holding, he could not be happier about it.

As to the bad news for today, it is still linked swallowing problem. I recreate the setups, but could not find anything that would recreate the swallowing problem. In the afternoon I sat in our backyard watching Dianne doing some garden work. We had an early dinner that was followed by having a shower before going to bed to watch some movies. I hope I will be able to sleep through the night without any problems.
