So I haven't posted in awhile and need to give some honest feedback on my recovery. I was feeling pretty terrible nothing tasted good and I didn't want to eat(drink) anything broth tasted like ass and I got really dehydrated which resulted in barfing(which was really just a succession of burps no actual puke). I then realized I did not want to hurt the band or go to the doctor so I needed to do something this was Monday afternoon. So I decided to get some egg drop soup from my favorite chinese restaurant and I filtered out the chunks. I had about a 1/3 cup and it was heavenly. I suddenly felt so much better. As the day went on crystal light and water started to taste better. So then yesterday I woke up and my shoulder and tummy hurt...instant alert to gas so I walked around the house and made my son some breakfast and the gas disappeared. I then had some more chinese broth and felt a lot better. I really started to feel good. Tuesdays I take my son to tennis after school and because its just me I quit the pain meds so that I could drive(had to pick him up from school and take him to tennis) well the pain came and it didn't help that it was gorgeous 73 out and I was sitting in the sun during practice I started to sweat a little and the cuts started to itch and burn a little. I wish I had brought myself something to drink...I didn't what a mistake. When I got home I was thirsty and I knew I needed to get more protein in so I made a protein drink and drank it to fast and ended up with tummy and chest pains. Will I learn to slow down on my sipping? So this morning I woke up and I was thirsty so I made a protein shake and I sipped about 3/4 it and yeah...no pains today.
So I guess what I am getting at is that I must be a slow learner because I really knew all this stuff...I have read it in blogs but then I seem to have a brain fart and forgetten it.
I am going to try to walk today for about an hour.
I am going to try to remember to sip slowly today.
I am going to try to go with no pain meds today.
I did drop another 3 lbs...need to update my ticker.
Love you guys .... move on to mushies tomorrow and I am a little excited...I have my egg beaters ready and my mashed potatoes on hand...am I ready or just headed to shoulder and chest pains....
