I can’t believe tomorrow will be a week since I checked into the hospital! Wow!
Aside from feeling slightly like the “Bride of Frankenstein” I’m not doing too bad. Here are some highlights and not so highlights of the week…
First off, I’v had a rough day today. Nothing I drink wants to settle and I’m getting random shots of pain in random places. It has just made me grumpy today. I hope tomorrow will be much better.
Since coming home on Thursday, I’ve walked around Costco, been to the office once, gone grocery shopping and done several laps around my back yard. Its nice to be able to get up and do things. However, I can only do so much before I’m ready to sleep! Hahaha… Having major surgery does that to a person I’ve been told.
I miss putting my kidos to bed. My parents have been so amazing! They’ve entertained, fed, bathed, and put my kids to bed every day since I’ve been home! And the kids have been super with them. I’m convinced these aren’t even my kids actually! They eat what they’ve been given, take there baths, for the most part, without complaining. Bed times are the hardest. I still can’t lay down so I go up and tuck them in and leave them with Nana or Popop.
Now for the best part of this week… At least for me… My weight checks!
Day of Admission: 247 (down 35lbs since November)
Day of coming home: 250!!?? (Booo! I’m guessing iv fluids and other things played into that number)
Day 6 Post- Op: 242!!!! (down 40lbs since November, and 7 since Thursday!)
I feel stronger every day. I am still a long way off from getting my required food/liquid amounts in, and today was the biggest struggle with that, but I’m hopeful that will get easier
Tomorrow is a foot spa day with my momma! She’s never had a pedicure before, so I’m really excited to share this with her.
That’s really all I’ve got! I’ll be back next week with more updates! I hope you all have a Super Duper week!!
