Friday, May 25, 2018 5 comments
Had a rough night last night. Yesterday was my first day trying shakes and getting back on vitamins/meds. Even a sip of shake made me nauseated, I thought that was bad till I went to bed. Something about the timing or perhaps I tried to take my ... Read more

Went walking at Walmart this morning. Needed to get a new water bottle and looked for a wedge pillow. I can't get myself out of bed and thought being more propped up would help. I know it would help me sleep. Got a good 1,400-odd steps in and fe... Read more

First full day home, thought I would pop on and say hello and give an update. Post-op in the hospital was great, I loved having the long halls to walk, I had plenty of company, and for the most part the nursing staff was great. My doctor gave me... Read more

I got a haircut yesterday. Only knew I wanted it shorter, didn't know what style. So I went in and explained that I'm having surgery and some of my hair will probably fall out so I need a style that will cover that up. Here's what we came up wit... Read more

Started my pre-op diet today! 13 more days till surgery! WooHoo! I am so excited about this! Nevermind that half of what I'm taking in right now does not taste very good, it will be worth it. Plus I like my "fruit drinks" and one of my shakes is... Read more

Whew! Got the last detail for my surgery taken care of yesterday. That is a green light for surgery! I needed a compliance report for my cpap machine, had them fax it before the funeral, but when I got back, nothing had been done! Instead of cal... Read more

Made it home yesterday evening. The day of the funeral was difficult. I had to keep the kiddos away from the open casket till they finally closed it. We stayed in the family room most of the time. The whole day was exhausting. The trip to t... Read more
