I finally feel like posting again. I went through hell, but made it back after the surgery. I developed pneumonia and was put on a ventilator for a few days. Stayed in the hospital 2 weeks. Finally able to eat a little and nothing has a taste. Is this a permanent problem or will taste come back. I just started eating soft food today. Started with a poached egg on toast this morning and 1/2 cup of coffee. Nothing tasted. Had snack of cream cheese on Ritz. No taste. I sure hope the taste buds start working again. It is hard to force yourself to eat when it doesn't taste.
Any advice on eating will be appreciated. Also, I want to thank everyone for your support and prayers during this ordeal. I have to say, there were times when I didn't think I was going to make it, but thanks to the power of prayer, I am here to tell the story.
