Everday a Baby Step

I have been surprised by how sick I've been following my surgery.  My doc had me thinking I'd be feeling great and able to function at 2 weeks out.  Well, it's 2 weeks out and I feel like I have the flu.  Everything is making me feel nauseated.  On Saturday, I found my self wondering if I had made a mistake having the surgery.  My mom and Karen helped me get over that hump by allowing me to cry it out and brood for a while.

I have to get my act together soon, because I need to return to work on Oct. 28.  My goal is to feel better by this weekend.  Not sure how to accomplish that, but it's a good goal.

Soups seem to feel good when I drink them.  Last night Bob brought me my favorite french onion soup (minus croutons) from Panera.  We had to put it in the blender to break down the onions and the cheese.  Boy, was that good.  The other things that seem to go down easy are sugar free popsicles.  They feel good as they melt in my mouth and head south, and they quench my thirst, too.

Right now, I'm sipping on some tomato soup.  I REALLY want some water, but it doesn't seem to agree with me at the moment.  It's so weird how things have changed as far as eating and drinking goes.  Things taste different, more intense.  I still crave my favorites like pizza, but I could not eat that right now, no matter how much I want to.

Well, I'm getting sleepy.  Bob has taken Zoë to the zoo, so I have the house to myself.   Gonna go and rest a bit.

Until next time,
Nancy (Scrappyknees)

  1. You do know that I work for Panera, right? Have you seen a doctor since your surgery? Just curious to see how the weight loss is progressing. Praying for you!
