    Angel, I am feeling alright. It gets better as the days go by. But I sure could go for something refreshing to eat. But don't feel sorry for me, For now, it's clear, clear and soup.😏

    Batty2000, When I read that first sentence, I laughed my petunias off ( well not literally but you catch my drift)🤣

    Happy Saturday Everyone, Day 3 of being stuck inside. I have kept the time by watching some of the movies I recorded during the week. Like the Misfits, Curse of Frankenstein and Cat on A Hot Tin Roof. Yup, the Purpledva is into Classic Hollywood. The Golden Age of Hollywood had its problems but they had style and class too. I must be honest clear liquids are becoming quite old, quickly. And the need to have something more substantial is becoming rampant. I equate it to being a vampire during the series of True Blood. The hunger is fierce and will sometimes not make you such a nice person. I checked my blood sugar levels earlier today and they had dropped to 65 which is not the greatest. So, I opted for some fruit juice and now my readings are back to normal. I am starting ask myself did I make the right decision by opting to have surgery. I mean, I am a social creature and the weather is so nice outside, etc. But I have to keep reminding myself that Rome was not built in a day. So I will gradually look to soup to ease my fears/hungers. I haven’t been out walking, etc. Because I wanted to give myself time to really heal. So over the next week, I will be still taking it easy and gradually incorporating a walk or two in the coming week. The Struggle is Fierce but the rewards are so worth it!!!

    Happy Friday Everyone, Day 2 of being at home. I am starting to feel my usual self.☺️ I don't have much of an appetite. So I am just drinking mostly water and tea and having an occasional s/f popsicle. The tenderness in my abdomen area is slowly going away. I weighed myself this morning ( I know I wasn’t going to do this until next week😏) and came in at 217. So all the extra gases, liquids, etc have taken a permanent vacation.😄 I noticed others mentioning having issues with GERD. For me, I notice that if I try to take a gallup instead of a sip then it comes back up as a big ol’ air pocket.😲 So sipping will be the thing to do. Have a Great Friday, Everyone!!!! And to all my other June Brothers and Sisters, I anxiously await your arrivals on the other side. Good Luck

    Guess What???!!!!! I am back........ Surgery went well on Monday. I was discharged, yesterday. I was so glad to get home and finally get some REST. I don’t how anyone is suppose to get any rest in the hospital is was SO NOISY. Well for starters, on Monday, I came down with the worst case of constipation, I had ever suffered. 😕 So, I called myself smart and ran out and purchased some suppositories the morning of the surgery. I thought I could just plop one in and I would be relieved before surgery. NOT!!!!😨 Then the hospital called me and wanted to know if I could come in early!! OH NO!!! I will stay clear for nasty details but 2 days later, I was finally relieved of the problem. I can’t tell you how great that felt.😃 Anyways, I am doing good. Just resting and trying to increase my water intake. This clear liquid diet is a BEAST!!! I won’t lie to anyone……. I am so looking forward to an egg, fish or even chicken, I won’t complain. Once, I pass my 30 day mark, I should be able to eat some real food. But until then, the liquids have it. Thank God for Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu…..Between naps that is what is keeping me entertained. So the Purpledva is doing alright. I have my follow up visit on Thursday, the 13th. Btw, surgery weight was 217 which was a 2 pound variance from my home scale but I will take. And Post surgery weight was 222. Well of course, the doctor said,”We’ve just pumped you up full of gas and liquids…That’s expected”😂😂 Purpledva signing out. You’ve got this Funky JuneBunch

I got on the scale this evening and what do you know……….216!!!!! Well I can’t wait to get tomorrow over with. I will possibly check in the morning or even afterwards to let you all know I made it!!!

    JamesL73, I am glad you are coming along for the ride. Your bio speaks so eloquently [emoji4] about your triumphs and struggles in the WLS journey. By this time next week, I will be recuperating. I am still a bit nervous but anxious to crossover to the Post-Op side[emoji16]. We CAN do this!!!! Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app
