I am so hungry, even though I am "eating." Actually, I'm drinking, and I don't think it is dense enough. I am pretty sure I need to up my caloric in take, but I don't know how to do it. Luckily, I get to add more foods like yogurt, etc. to my diet starting on Sunday. This should help a lot. My average intake right now is about 650 calories a day. I'm supposed to shoot for 1000 calories. No wonder I'm hungry. Tomorrow, I will add a third protein shake and see if that helps.
This surgery really kicked my butt. When I'm not taking meds or trying to get in calories, I am asleep. I've been so fortunate to have help with Zoë this week. Between Bob, his mom, and my parents she's been well cared for everyday. I miss being an active part of her life, so this has to change, somehow. But I just feel so darn weak and tired, I can barely function. I haven't even taken any phone calls, because it is too hard to talk when I'm this tired.
The good news is the pain is much less and I managed to ditch the pain pills. Surely this will help me perk up a bit?
Well, I'm getting sleepy after all this typing.
Until next time,
