For starters, this is a blunt post. Putting it all out there. There might be info you are not interested in, so read at your own risk :0)
Today has been a bit more of a roller coaster day. Lots of ups and a few downs. I will share.
I had lovely visitors today! Several friends came and it was so much easier to suck down the liquids when you are a bit distracted.
I put my pants on all by myself today!
I had my first bowel movement, which can take some people forever.
I took two great walks.
I have no pain.
I got 10 oz. of a protein drink down. 20 grams of protein.
I ate a little mashed potatoes.
Had my first vitamin with no trouble.
My insulin is less than half, blood sugars have been amazing, and I am not taking any of the pills I took for diabetes.
I have had no pain meds. for over 24 hours!
I should have gotten in 60 grams of protein
I am struggling to get in my last 8 oz. of liquid
I woke up nauseated, but it did not last long
Have had my first brief moment of, did I really just do this permanently?
The antibiotics I got in the hospital have given me a yeast infection in some pretty annoying places. It is driving me a bit crazy!
The draining tube is completely annoying and it needs to be gone!
Because of said drainage tube I have to sleep on my back, I hate sleeping on my back.
So there it is people, keeping it real. The good news is The Good outnumbers The Bad and The Ugly by quite a bit. I need to remind myself of that as I try to get down these last sips while I am so tired and just want to go to bed!
