Two weeks post surgery photo. I didn't think that there would be a difference, but THERE IS!!! Halleluja!
It will be two weeks tomorrow since I had my surgery. I went for my followup visit today and the surgeon is amazed! My incisions have all healed nicely (I heal very fast) and I haven't had any vomiting or explosive diar------. I don't like saying that word and you probably don't like reading it, so I shall refrain from saying it ..., well maybe. I have lost 20 pounds since the last time I weighed at his office. He said that I was on the high end of the weight loss for most of his patients. He also told me that I should lose the weight very fast. I'm down 14 pounds, with clothes, and 16 pounds in underwear, since two weeks ago when I weighed at home.
Each day I feel a little stronger. I even went for a walk today, but was exhausted by the time I got to my friend's home. I was leaning on her house, ringing the doorbell, hoping she was home so I could go inside and sit down. I had a busy day today with Relief Society work, planning a funeral luncheon for tomorrow, going to the Dr., and visiting the deceased at a viewing. But I really, really feel great. I even fixed Lynn his favorite dinner tonight ... chicken flied lice! (fried rice) This is one recipe I'll definitely put into our cookbook.
Speaking of the cookbook, it's coming along. There are some terrific recipes and I've even tried some. You'll want your own copy as soon as I have it published. Just let me know if you'd like one or several copies. You're still welcome to submit more. I think I could use a few more main dishes, and you don't have to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator to submit. Just e-mail me your recipes, with a photo and bio of yourself and I'll include them in the book.
We've enjoyed having Angie's dog this past week. I'm going to miss him. He's very obedient. Much more so than Dieter. I hope that Dieter is taking good lessons from him before he goes home. I take 'the boys' over to Mom and Dads and they get the biggest kick out of watching them play together. It's more like Dieter pestering poor Sarge and he just sits there and takes it. On occasion he'll put Dieter in his place.
I think that's all for now. Tomorrow, if I remember, I'll take a picture of a 2 ounce portion of food so you can get an idea of how little it really is. The Dr. said that I'm probably only consuming between 3 and 400 calories a day. That's not very much. No wonder we lose weight so fast!
