Since I felt so good during the afternoon and throughout the game, I decided to sit at the table for supper. That was a huge mistake. Although all I had done was maneuver myself to the kitchen table and sit down, I was sweating like I'd run a marathon in 100 degree weather. Sweat was literally rolling down my body like I was in a shower.
65MD closed the curtains and I stripped naked!! I told him, that I was sure this was a dream come true for him, just not quite the way he'd imagined. As hard as I tried to hold on to my humor and make the best of the situation, I couldn't. I broke down sobbing. Talk about a major mood swing!! It was all I could do to hold on and I was trying to keep some control over myself.
I ate a tiny piece of baked chicken, a tablespoon or two of mashed potatoes and a few peas. Then I got sick. Every bit of what I'd managed to choke down came back up. I think the pain meds I am on are to blame for the mood swings and messed up digestion. (TMI, but I haven't pooped since pre surgery.)
My blood sugar was all over the place while I was in the hospital. I am not diabetic and the doctor says that the high readings are the result of surgical trauma. He's not as concerned as I am, although he is requiring me to check my glucose each morning. I had two days of normal readings at home and now it is up again. Just a tick outside the normal level, but still too high.
For now, my goals are small and have nothing to do with weight loss. My goals are:
*Sit up for only as long as it feels good
*Eat what is healthy and nutritious
*Nap when I am sleepy
*Take medication on time
It will be a few weeks before my goals will be anything much different than those listed above. That's OK. I'll continue to get stronger and feel better and that is what matters.
And I want to give a great big shout out to Timothy for mentioning me on his blog. I appreciate every one's prayers on my behalf!
