Day 8/ hydrate!
Tuesday, May 29, 2018      5 comments

I lost another pound! I am back to my hospital pre-surgery weigh in of 245 (I had gained up to 251 from the surgery). My f/u is on Friday and I have a ton of questions! I'm probably going to make an appointment with the dietitian as well, I need... Read more

I went to church today! I managed to stay for the whole thing. I got uncomfortable but no serious pain. I'm struggling to get my protein in. Seriously. Today so far I've gotten in 15 grams of protein, my goal for a day is 65. The shakes ar... Read more

I'm getting some of my shake down! I mixed it with ice cubes and almond milk in the blender, and it is latte flavored, so it tastes kinda like a frappuccino (only not as good) So I'm guessing since I got half of it down, I got half the amount of... Read more

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
Post Surgery At Home
Wednesday, May 23, 2018      6 comments

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
