Ok, the doctor went in with the intention of cutting out some suspect tissue for biopsy, and to evaluate for trach tube removal. But, when he scoped me, he couldn't find any suspect tissue. So, not nearly as sore as I had anticipated (just a contusion under my tongue from where my mouth was wedged open). I did wake up with the trach tube still in place…but the plan is to keep it fully plugged overnight and make sure my O2 stays good, then take it out tomorrow morning and monitor me for a few hours before sending me home.
So, stuck in a room for another 20 hours or so, but getting a few work tasks (and blog updates) done. I hear the dinner bell ringing…gotta go eat, now.
