I have not been blogging because my computer has had two virus and I did not wish to pass them on.
Hi to my family, friends and prayer people,
It was a month ago today that I had my bariatric surgery. I did not have the surgery that was planned for me. I did not get the new small pouch for a stomach. I had too many adhesions from previous surgeries so I had “the sleeve” surgery. This means the doctor took part of my stomach away and stappled what I have left to make a smaller stomach. I have passed through the five weeks of liquids only. I am now trying to eat “real” foods such as egg, cottage cheese, canned chicken, tuna, and refried beans. I have not been as successful as I would like to be on this eating plan. I do not know when I have had enough food until I feel like I need a big burp or worse. Today I have just eaten ½ the portion that I think I should be able to.
OK, I know that all dames are dizzy. I am literally having a problem with light headedness and dizziness. I told Dr. Roy this, she said that it most likely is a lack of food so I try to take some of my protein or just go take a nap.
I had expected to have a wealth of energy by now. It is not happening. I am however now able to leave the pool, take a shower, spin my swim suit and go to my locker without having to sit and rest between each of these things. I am pleased with this.
I do not see Dr. Gluck again until next Tuesday, March 10 at this time he will be telling me how my blood is. I went this morning and had 8 – 10 vials of blood drawn.
Spot the things you think I need prayers for and back me up, please.
