This may not be as exciting to anyone but y'all who truly understand. I slept through the night the last two nights in a row. 7 straight, solid hours of sleep. I've been waking up every 2 hours to gag/choke/rinse and spit. But, these last two nights I slept right on through and the gagfest once I got up wasn't too bad. I can tell this spit issue is getting better. Each day it seems like I'm better. I've been reading every post I can find dealing with the saliva/mucus stuff and you all have said that it gets better week by week. THAT is the truth! It's far from being gone, but it sure is nice to sleep and get some rest. I still haven't been able to drink by mouth as this junk sits in the back of my throat and when I try to drink it gags me, but I did eat some jello and applesauce yesterday and today. Baby steps and one day at a time. I'm thinking maybe some soup tonight and trying smaller sips of water. Thank you all for the support, advice and help! Wishing you all the best!
