I was expecting pain and that it would help me ignore the food craving. Not so much. I'm still having fantasies of just chewing on food and spitting it out before I swallow. *ugh* Not good!
On the plus side we had visitors twice yesterday (well three times, but I was asleep for one). Hank came over to ride the trainer/rollers with Josh, Barry stopped by (this was my asleep time) and Dave and Amanda stopped by with a little gift. It was a plate and bowl! This was very thoughtful and orange, so of course I loved it.
I also got a nice fake flower arrangement from Josh's grandparents on Monday.
I've lost 7 lbs since I came home on Saturday and 9lbs since Thursday, the night before surgery. I was warned 10-15lbs within the first two weeks, but I'm almost half way to the max number and it isn't even one week since surgery. I really hope that on Thursday, when I have my follow up with Dr. Prats, I can start on a full liquid diet (not just clear like now). So some milk, carnation breakfasts, etc. That would be soooo nice.
Good news: I'm getting better.
Bad news: It's taking a little longer than I thought.
*hugs and kisses*
