Almost one week ago today! That’s how long it’s been since surgery. I’ve been on a liquid diet for three weeks. That’s so crazy to me. I’ve lost crazy amounts of weight in that three weeks. 27 lbs to be exactly. But it’s hard. I mean your stomach wouldn’t let you eat the food but it all looks and sounds good.
Luckily he is so cute, because he is eating Papa John’s right next to me!
Aside front that, things are going well. There’s been no real bad pain, mostly soreness in my main incision. But I stopped the prescription pain meds a few days ago and just take Tylenol in the morning and the night.
I definitely get tired easily. This afternoon I passed out at 3:45 until 6:00!! I’ll pay for that by being up half the night, I’m sure.
The hardest part is keeping up with fluids and protein. It’s getting better each day but it’s a full time job. I wish it wasn’t 15 degrees out so I could walk down the street instead of around the house. I’m trying to rack up my step count.
I did my nails last night to perk myself up:
And my friend sent me this poem in the mail. ♥️
I’ve been so blessed with support and love from friends and family. I am such a lucky girl.
Also, I must mention that I’m devastated by the death of Luke Perry. 😢
RIP, Dylan McKay. 💗💗
