Day 6 And Slightly Tired But Feeling Good.



Things are going smoothly, although I'm a bit tired and need to sleep quite often and am still stuck on my back like a turtle when I try to get out of bed in the morning. HOWEVER, I managed to sleep on my side last night- yay! I am drinking protein shakes (muscle milk this morning) and soup (butternut and sweet potato today), and thinned 0% fage yoghurt with splenda and vanilla essence added. 10 g of protein too!


My cat is still not doing so great.They have increased her feeding, if I bring her home I will have to tube- feed her every 4 hours and I'm just not up to that right now, so I've asked the vet to keep her for a few more days.

I'm sorry to hear about your cat, but at least she will be taken care of properly and you have more time to rest.

I'm on day 6, too, but I'm surprisingly not as tired as I imagined. I think it's because along with drinking my soups and my protein drinks I'm also taking my vitamins in the morning. It also helps to have a set schedule when it comes to sleeping. Congrats!!

I am on day 6 as well. I am not really tired...but I try not to sit around too much. I sip sip sip...sip sip sip...and I did manage to eat some soup on yesterday and I drink a protein shake in the mornings with 1% milk. It seems I am able to drink at least 100z in 30 min to an hour. It seems like a lot to me.

It is vary important to keep your intake of protein and you still need some cals and carb to keep your energy up. Most important is to walk to keep your metabolism up.

Hi Smoggy, keep drinking and eating your protein, one day at a time, don't push it. Your cat is in Good hands. Take care of you so that you can help me get through this next week.
