    Neri got a reaction from catchthewind in Does it get easier?   
    Hello, and congrats on getting your VSG! When I got my sleeve done back in 2018, I had a hard time getting all my fluids in as well, but it does get a lot easier over time. Remember, your stomach is still healing.
    I do agree with lisafrommassachusetts though. Track all liquids, including Protein Shakes and broth. You may be getting in more fluids than you realize!

    Neri got a reaction from MelissaKay in A few NSVs   
    I noticed a few NSVs last night/this morning, and I'm just so happy I had to share. So, here they are.
    1) I had to tighten the strap on the mask for my CPAP
    2) I've noticed that I've started taking better care of myself and have generally been feeling happier
    3 (and my favorite)) Today as I was leaving for work, my husband hugs me and said, "You've lost so much weight, I can hug you more completely". Guys. He can finally get his arms the whole way around me. I have been smiling about this all day.

    Dear Week 3 stall,
    Why did you have to happen now? I have my follow up with my surgeon tomorrow, and I wanted to show a larger weight loss. Instead, you had to come early, at week 2.
    I understand why you show up.
    I understand that you're only a temporary visitor.
    I'm just frustrated. Especially since I know I'm losing inches.
    From,
    Neri

    Neri got a reaction from Frustr8 in Did you have to share a room in the hospital?   
    I did not have a roommate (unless you count my husband, who stayed in the recliner beside the bed the whole time I was in there). In fact, in the hospital I was at, it seemed like all the rooms on my floor were single occupant.
    I do agree with Healthy_life though. You should call ahead to see what the room situation could be, and you can see if you can get a private room.

    Thank you, everyone, for all the advice! I've tried adding flavorings to my Water, and it works! I can get more down

    Neri got a reaction from ABawdyMermaid in Water makes me sick at night?   
    I've been having a lot of trouble getting in all my Water for the day because in the evening water starts making me feel extremely nauseous. I'm able to sip at my water up until that point. I'm also still able to drink Protein Shakes and have Soup just fine too. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I forgot to take measurements before all this got going. I could kick myself because I know it is more dramatic than what shows on my scale! Don't get me wrong, 31lbs in 5 weeks is amazing but my clothes are falling off! lol

    That's wonderful! My non-scale victories include necklaces that fit better, jeans in a smaller size, and feeling more confident.

    After years of f8ngernails that split and broke, my fingernails are looking good and are actually strong. Who'd have thunk it would be that way. Either it's the TPN or my healthy is starting to return. Either way, Yippee Skippee!😝👍😅

    I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you right now.

    Neri got a reaction from Frustr8 in Back to work   
    I had my surgery on Dec. 26th and went back to work on Dec. 31st. However, the reason I was able to do this is because I was allowed to work from home. I also have a desk job, but I didn't actually drive back in to work until yesterday.
    The pain meds that you may have been given upon leaving the hospital may impair your driving. Due to this, I would say it's best to ask your surgeon if it's okay to drive.

    My wonderful, wonderful 15 year YOUNG Andrew died January 3rd. I'm still having trouble
    processing. This was a terrible, awful, avoidable accident. Andrew was video chatting with 4
    other friends. The jist of the story is....kids were talking, laughing, daring each other about "silly"
    things. Not sure of all specific details (we will never know)
    They were all teasing/taunting/joking with each other - story involving a neck and a rope - how tight one
    could pull , won't say any more details, use your imagination. One child saw most of what was going on screen.
    He screamed, ran to his mother and then called 911. Police followed to look into the situation. My
    daughter was confused about any possible problem with police/ went upstairs - found Andrew in bedroom
    closet. This boy, grant? is devastated about what happened. He didn't want to go funeral/hasn't been
    able to talk to my daughter yet. This must be a terrifying nightmare that he will never forget.
    Andrew was/is such a terrific young man. Handsome, smart/funny. Any and all people were very lucky to have
    known him. He lit up a room. He was/is a terrific son/brother/nephew/friend and of course my grand-son.
    his sister, 18 year old Morgan - is handling things the best she can. She lost her younger brother!! How terrible is that!!
    She has a large support group of friends. She cries so often - but luckily friends are there to hold her.! my "little" wonderful
    11 yr young Ethan has more trouble wrapping around the situation. Understanding what was going on. He slowing is understanding
    that his big brother will never come home,
    my daughter has a large community of friends in her neighborhood, many people from temple - so much
    necessary support. She has 4 long time friends from different states that came to support her. BTW - her temple
    holds 300 people - standing room only. Shows how much my Andrew and his family are loved.
    We are so sad, terrified about this tragedy. We will all always love our Andrew. Forever and ever. The problem
    now is dealing with the aftermath. Losing Andrew - the brother, grandson - friend but for my daughter and
    my son-in-law - their son - i can't imagine how they feel. - they have friends and family at their house, one
    after another - so they haven't been alone. Next week, and after, two more friends will be their for her.
    But eventually they will be all alone! Their lives will never be the same. they are seeing a therapist individually,
    and the whole family. They also are looking into finding a group of parents who have lost etc etc
    thank you letting me unburden myself on you all.
    kathy
