I have been hearing that a lot lately. And to be honest, not great. Normal, but not great.
My body is having a tough time adjusting to the pureed food I am eating. It is hard work trying to get my five small meals in a day. I have gone down to eating about 1/3 of a cup at a time as 1/2 a cup was a bit too much and was causing some pain. But after I eat, my guts just churn and gurgle and I am off running to the bathroom with horrible diarrhea. I know, too much info, but that is what you get on my blog!
I contacted my surgeon (who has had the surgery himself), along with my nutritionist and what I am experiencing is very normal. The advice I got was to just make sure I am getting in a lot of fluids and not to worry, my body will adjust over the next few weeks.
Right now I feel as though I have had a horrible stomach flu for the last three days. I am very weak and tired. While I felt lame at the beginning of the week having my kids in care, I am so thankful for it now. There is just no way I would have been able to deal with the boys during the day on my own. I am now thinking I will need to ask for more help again next week as I just need more time to heal. This is tough for me. I want to be outside enjoying all of the snow and taking the boys sliding or doing things around my house. I like to be busy and productive!! However, I am learning to enjoy my quiet house with a blanket and a book.
I am very grateful for all of our friends that have been dropping off suppers each night! I have been able to truly take time to heal thanks to the kindness of people here in Faro!
