I had my lap band surgery Friday, January 15, 2010. I am doing well. Most of the time is spent eating crushed ice. I had a Jello today and had to eat it in 2 different settings. K2O is protein water and I am trying to drink a couple of those each day because your body needs protein. I haven't been hungry at all. Tried to drink broth last night and got a little nauseated. It is going to be one step at a time. I am walking around inside the house like I am supposed to and doing my breathing exercises. Haven't been able to give myself a shot yet. Jim is doing that for me every eight hours. My friend Alice, will probably be giving me the 2 o'clock shot at work. She says she can so I am taking her up on it.
I never realized that I had so many friends. When I woke up yesterday, there was already a post on the message board at Tallyscrappers wondering how I was doing. Friends and relatives have called many times to check on me. I am not ignoring the phone calls, Jim is answering most of them. I just don't feel much like talking right now. I do appreciate everyone's concern. I did talk to my grandson Kaden this morning. He made me feel a lot better. He told his Mom, "Her feels better, a little bit." How could you not feel good with that little guy pulling for you?
I have been truly blessed and I am sure that I will be able to follow this through. I will keep you all posted. Thanks for caring.
Conch and Coke!
