I got a quarter of a cc out and tonight I was able to drink an ice cold drink - not an option for the last week and while I'm still sticking to mushy foods for a day or so - there's no doubt I can eat much, much more freely. What a relief. I even had some chicken - almost without thinking about it. I'm feeling very hopeful all will be well now!!!
Thank you all so much for your concern, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!!!
