I remember someone else’s CI blog where they wondered if they had actually done anything to them during surgery or not… that’s pretty much how I feel.
I have some slight stiffness in my jaw and neck, a bandage on my head, my ear are is a bit tender and there’s dried stuff caked inside my ear that I’m trying not to pick at.
My taste is definitely messed up – I can’t taste anything at all except on the very left side of my tongue. Milk tastes like water, water tastes good and minerally. Grains that I normally eat taste bland. I’m wondering how spicy food would be. Liquids and soups seem the best as they fill my whole mouth and I don’t have to keep food on just the left side to taste it. Surprisingly soda tastes good, normally it’s way too sweet to enjoy.
I must be hungry – we are off to find some lunch.
