I made it! I have to be really honest and say that the last seven days have been a little rough. Nothing happened that I wasn't fully aware of (only getting to drink 4 oz. of fluid to start off) but the reality of it all kind of came crashing down on me Sunday. I started to run a low grade fever 99.8 and it made me feel like JUNK! Thankfully when I woke up Tuesday morning the fever was gone and I felt human again. I get to start "squishy" foods today, but honestly, I am scared to try them. I have named my new stomach Seymour, because he has a mind of his own. I have spent the last week trying to figure out exactly what "Seymore" wants. Is it hungry, thirsty, full? I haven't had any vomiting and just a little bit of nausea. I have been sticking to my protein supplement shakes, tomato soup, low fat yogurt, instant cream of wheat, sugar free pop cyclices & crystal light. I need to read other people's post op blogs to see what the normal thoughts are on the first week, because I think that I have been kind of hard on myself. I am still a little sore on two of my incisions but I am back at work today hoping for the best. I work a desk job and have a fantastic boss so I have the flexibility to take it easy. I did get on the scale this morning and I am down 10 pounds. I think I will be more excited about it when I fell fully recovered from surgery. I'll keep you guys posted.
