Everything is going okay. I miss chewing though🥺 getting in my Water is a struggle. I can only drink warm lemon water. I’m up to 5 cups. I hate all my Protein Shakes now. I found I can take Fairlife 1% plus GENEPRO unflavored Protein Powder with only a little issue. I’m happy overall though. How are you doing?

Okay. My surgery was yesterday. Going home soon. I have incision site pain on my right- where the two stitches in my muscle are. Took forever to be able to urinate on my own- started to scare me even but now everything is well in that area. Kinda questioning wtf did I just do to my self tho.

I am postop day 6 and I’ve been achy. I am on a full liquid diet now. I will be on it for a week. Today has been rough. I’ve been very emotional and have been doing a little too much today. I know it will get better. Everyone who’s going through it keep pushing forward.

Okay- so I was sleeved on Saturday it’s now Tuesday. My back is aching on my right side- maybe some gas stuck? I’m forcing Protein Water down- it tastes awful but I know if I get protein in I’m gonna feel better. I’m doing well getting my liquids in. It’s hard to move around due to the larger incision- but again making my self do it. Also definitely not sleeping enough- currently sleeping in a recliner because I can’t get my self out of bed without wanting to scream due to using abdominal muscles. The nurse called yesterday- recommended I use a pillow on my stomach to brace myself to get up. The nurse was also frustrated I didn’t get a binder when I was in the hospital so she recommended I get one or use high waisted compression leggings. Hoping I’m going to turn the corner in pain soon!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
