Weekend Flash

Where did this 3-day weekend go?  I got all of my grad-work done, the house was clean but is now it’s a mess again, one movie splurge, no naps, no laundry done, and it’s damn 9 o’clock! WTH? 

Yeah there’s a bunch of other honey do’s in there that got done and more that didn’t, but today I was so busy I didn’t get to eat my first meal until dang 730p.  It was protein-shake Monday folks. And only 20oz of water. Not good, not good. 

9-days to go… Man if it goes as fast as the last three days have… I tell you, I’m having dreams about it. I don’t know if it’s nerves or my Amandalyzing brain.  I AM nervous I am going back to work too quick- even if I am still in my home and just at a desk/PC.  Nothing I can do about that though… At least if I have to lay down for 5-10 minutes, I can. 

So the pre-op diet is now a breeze. Getting past day 1 and 2 was the rough part, now it’s easy-peezy. And I’m not even nervous about the 2-day liquid part.  I can do a protein shake every 3-4 hours no problem, if today was any good indication. 

So, I went in my closet today to grab some jeans to help the hubby corral some cows (literally) and I tried to put on 2 pair before I finally found one that barely fit.  (There’s more than one reason I live in yoga pants and long t-shirts folks) I just stood there in my closet for a minute and got excited that soon, soon, most of this shit will be too big for me.

  1. Not sure how soon you are going back to work but my surgery was on a Monday and I went back to work the next Monday (I also have a home-based office). I tell you what though, I was BORED by Thursday and could have easily went back to work that soon. I was off pain medicine on Tuesday and was driving myself to a hair appointment on Wednesday. Everyone heals differently, but I was ready to return to normal things very quickly!

  2. I agree… I had my surgery on a Tuesday… I would have gone back to work on Monday. I had the days to take, so I did. I basically went back to doing everything like normal but no going in to work… Meaning walking, going to the grocery store, cooking, cleaning, laundry, tending to animals, etc…
    I never took pain meds after leaving the hospital either. I took nausea meds once… But only because the actigall meds made me sick… So I couldn’t take them. Other than that… Easy breezy!
    Excited to hear your progress!
    Oh… Be as diligent as you can about getting water and protein in… It will be harder than you think post op. Gotta stay hydrated!👍🏼

    1. Very glad to hear your post-op too!! Ok well then I will quit worrying about it so much. I’ve been great about the protein and water (water for months now) but yesterday was kind of a fluke. I’ll be sure to stay hydrated…
