I have moved up to soft foods! Hooray! But it takes almost an hour to eat my 2-3oz. of protein. How do y’all keep your food warm all that time? I started with a nice piping hot cabbage roll and by the end it was an ice cold meat lump of sadness :(

My bypass was scheduled for the day after hurricane Harvey. I was annoyed beforehand, but now I am grateful I hadn't had just before. Our house took on a foot of water and while the kids were rescued by boat, my husband and I had to walk over a mile in
