11 Days Post Op: Better Days

Day 11 Post Op

Today is 11 days post op for my full Thyroidectomy. I am still having quite a lot of pain, but it is such an improvement. Overall I feel much better than I did prior to surgery and I am sleeping more like a normal person. Hormone flux will continue to be a challenge as I work with the Endocrinologist to find the right dosage for me. By far the hormone changes and the emotional roller coaster is the worse of what is left to deal with, but I am confident that better days are here. I thank God for giving me the strength to come this far and I pray that he will grant me the patience I need to come the rest of the way down the road. Below are some pictures taken over the last week.

Day 3 Post Op

Day 8 Post Op

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
Cuz I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again

And it’s someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we’re alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there’s 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again
