The syringes were taking up space in the kitchen, and since I've been drinking from a cup for a while now, I frankly don't want to see another syringe for a while. These are the things one will bond with post surgery. On the left, the facial ice pack which was filled with ice cubes I don't know how many times. The syringes. There were 4 of them. 1 was used for the codeine(the one thing I am keeping out of this picture) which I used maybe once or twice after the surgery. 1 was used for the antibiotics. The other 2 were 60mL syringes for the food, liquids. I don't know how many times I pumped those things, but at 2L+ of fluids 60mL at a time, do the math. The measuring print is completely rubbed off of the syringe from overuse. I surely will not miss this. A pack of gauze which found it's moments to catch drool was invaluable, and I'm happy I somehow snagged that from the hospital. Besides the big bottle of codeine is the myostatin cream which is applied to the lips post surgery to avoid infection, and beside that is the Otrivine spray which helps the nose constrict and narrow the blood vessels within, reducing blood flow, swelling, and feelings of congestion.
Since the smoothie taste was getting stale I decided this morning that I would blend the ultimate chocolate smoothie.
half a banana
1 teaspoon nutella
1 teaspoon peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate whey protein
1 double chocolate chip muffin(was made at home the day before)
1 scoop cookies and cream ice cream(I didn't have anything more chocolate around)
Topped with chocolate milk
It was disgusting. I don't even like chocolate that much.
