Tired of liquids
Jun 16, 2009Well, as of today I am 203 lbs...almost to the 100s. I am so happy. And, it has been days of normal blood sugars...that alone makes it all worth while! I had an ear infection this past week...my first ever! I think my immune system is not up to speed yet. I was so excited in week 2 that I was exercising, working, carrying on like I had not had a surgery...my body did not like this at all and rebelled. The infection and healing have now left me exhausted in this my 3rd week post-op. I am going to try and balance resting/healing and maintaining some activity to help the weight loss along.
I am still feeling very blessed. My husband has been so supportive and helpful with my little one and around the house. He likes to take care of me I think...it makes him feel needed.
My incisions are looking pretty good. One of them had the dermabond peel off completely so I put a big bandaid and neosporin on it during the day then let it air at night...it is totally closed and looks great. The other ones are still covered with scabby stuff and dermabond, but I have a feeling underneath all that they look like the one that I have already gotten to see.
I am still on another week and a half of full liquids before I can have pureeds. I can't wait to actually get to solids...3.5 weeks to go for that!
I don't mind the protein drinks...I really like my syntrax nectar lemon tea and can see myself using it indefinitely as a supplement. The nectar fuzzy navel is also good for a change. I was doing great getting all my liquids in during the first two weeks, but now, with working and not being able to drink during/after meals, it is really tough to get in all 64 oz! I manage to do it but it is sometimes unpleasant!
All in all, things are good. Today, my mom told me my pants were too big on me and that I needed to buy some new ones. Yeah! But I am a cheapskate and will probably wear them til they fall off! LOL
God is good and as always, I continue to see Him working in my life and helping me to grow and become more of who He made me to be.
