One Day Out
Jan 14, 2010It is so true OH fam, after your surgery DO NOT LAY IN BED!!! I had to run some errands, so I got up this morning, and was out of the house about 10:30. I did not have to lift anything, just run around to a few places, I got home about 3:30. As for my body I feel pretty good. I was with my daughter the whole time, so my recommendation is not go out alone.
My only distress is a little integestion every now and then, but not severe and my stomach muscles hurt, especially when I cough. The most uncomfortable feeling so far is my navel, it is the most tender, I guess because that is where they did the most probing.
I am trying to get used to this eating thing ... I am still on clear liquids. I eat with a baby spoon, so that I do not take too much in at one time. Broth, Jello, Ice Pops and Juice have been my main items. I measure my liquids with a 1 oz shot glass (lol). I do not want to over eat anything. Even though I feel like I am not eating anything, I am not hungry. And I found a way to not get too bored to the Chicken Broth. Won Ton Soup -- pour off the broth, it is pretty good, and has a different taste of variety. My family eats the won tons with no problem.
Tonight before bed, I will have a few onces of Herb Tea as a night cap. I am going to make total fun out of this!
Take care everybody until later.
