Today I went back to school and didn’t feel like I was going to die after a half hour.
Talk about some GOOD healing 🙂
I knew what my body needed most was protein but I was so nauseous it was difficult to get or keep anything down and with the internal sutures all over the place the number one goal was not to puke and rip out all those lovely stitches.
Gross, right? Yeah, totally.
There were three days where I ate nothing and could barely keep down sips of water. You’d think I would have lost a bunch of weight, right? Okay, maybe not, but on the third day, when I gained a pound, I realized that what everyone tells you about “it’s all about calories in vs. calories out” is a damned lie.
I don’t know what the truth is, but in the meantime I’m just eating the way I always do and exercising as much as I can within doctor constraints, which are many for the next month or so.
In family news, we’re trying to figure out Thanksgiving. We have a few different options and are trying to figure out which one we want to go with. They all have pros and cons and I’m just not sure what I want from this holiday season. I want to enjoy myself, I want my children to enjoy themselves, and I want to really feel the presence of my family around me. So no getting rid of the kids and partying like rock stars for Thanksgiving, I guess. (LOL)
But I’m able to drive, walk, and sit in lectures.
It’s a start.
