Ladiesss Im homeee!!!!

Well I actually left the ER without being discharged... and I dont care..I know for sure they already charched my insurance...

I praise God!!! Cuz everything went extremely great!...thank God!

They didn't put a tube (extent) in like he though, instead he he dilated my stomach with a ballon..

It took 30 minutes under propofol lol

When I woke, they did another upper GI test...and i saw my stomach looking a lot wider but not exactly the size he want it to be...but he said, that during the week is going to continue to dilate on its own...

So far ice cubes, clear Soup, and waterelon went down fine..im just a bit scared, that I think that im going to feel the restriction again.

Dr. wanted me to spend the nite at the hospital, but I couldn't spend another night at the ER...I been waiting for 29 hours for room and nothing, they said surgery department upstairs is full..but for me took keep waiting, on a stretcher, with so much noise, all the lights on and people screen all the time....I didn't slept at all last night..and I wasn't going to do the same thing tonite..without taking a shower eww..

The Dr. wants me in another week of full liquids...

Im exhausted..but extremely grateful of my Jesus..

thank you to my Dr. too, he was extremely concern...

Thank you ladies for praying for me :)

God is good.

MJM, so glad your doctor tried the dilation! I hope this will be the end of it for you. God is so good!

The Almond Joy Creamer is made by Internatioal Delights. SO good!

One thing I'm so amazed about is my indifference to junk food. DH brought home Pinwheel Cookies, and I had no desire at all for even a tiny bite. That kind if stuff doesn't sound good to me at all. I sure hope this continues!

Have a good Sunday tomorrow!

MJM, so glad you're doing better. How long will you have to be on the liquid diet?

Dlm, for some reason, I don't crave sweets at all. Not sure how I would do if chips were in the house, though!

Doneganregime, my scales stayed the same for 6 days, then dropped 5.8 pounds quickly. From what I've read, that seems common. I've had problems with plantars fasciitis too, and it's no fun. Make sure your arches are supported at all times. Mine was brought on by using the treadmill. Go figure!

I called my nutritionist today, to ask if I should be monitoring carbohydrates. She said no, not in till about six months out. Just make sure I'm getting liquids, and plenty of Protein.

Have a good Tuesday!

Toofluffy. I'm glad your nut said that about carbs lol I has about 1/4 cup today of mashed potatoes and was concerned about it! I lost 2 pounds this week. I'm having so much trouble getting protien down food and Water. I know it will get better though. Wonderful times in store for all of us!

Dlm- wow that seems like a lot of money for inserts haha. Guess I'll see what the doc says.

Toofluffy- I use the treadmill more than the elliptical. I think that's where this started.

Soft diet - eating tuna, tilapia, salmon, cottage cheese, refried Beans, canned chicken, THEN veggies (small amount), canned fruit (small amount). I eat my Protein first usually chicken or tuna or fish ...... then top it with salsa and/or fat free cottage cheese. Laughing cow Swiss cheese - 2g of Protein and delish too! There's a soft food thread on here I've looked at!!! :-)

MJM, thanks. What are you eating? I talked to a vet today - gonna focus more on fluids and Protein than trying to eat soft foods. Gonna aim for 70g a day.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
