Greetings from the land of no anesthesia and no pain killers!!!

Hello there blogland!!

It's been a week since surgery and all in all I think I am doing well. I have come off of the pain killers and although I am not 100% pain free, I'm close enough.

I didn't weigh in this past Monday. I decided to skip it. I do have to say, the hospital scale was awesome! It said 205.4! I have no proof tho, didn't snap a picture.

In the hospital overnight and home Thursday. I am on restriction of everything for basically the next 5 weeks. I have one more week of nothing. I can move around the house but aside from that I need to take it easy. Do nothing that requires use of abdominal muscles. Which I am kind of finding out is everything LOL. He said no coughing, sneezing or vomiting either.

Basically the next 4 weeks after that are light basically leisurely walking. Nothing that is going to create pounding. Definitely don't want to have to repeat this surgery again!!

I have some awesome friends! They have been cooking for me! D made Chicken Parmesan, it was awesome!
Then my lovely made the most amazing eggs I think I have ever had! Scrambled with avocado, tomatoes and that green tobacco jalapeƱo sauce!
Then she made me my most favorite Chicken Saltimbocca!! OMG it was so good!! Angel hair is my new favorite pasta!
Last night my hubby made Chicken fried steak. It was really good. I have to say I was impressed! Who knew!
Now if I could get the kids to clean life would be super grand!!
I've gotten a few so sweet cards and gifts too! I was told the wine is for later! Chicken soup was really good!
So now that the effects of the pain meds and the anesthesia have gone I am loving my scale!!! It said 204 this morning! Yes I am still weighing everyday. I am terrified I am going to gain weight during this non-exercising duration. But the official weigh in day isn't until Monday so we wait on the weight!!
Sunday we got some serious rain! We had floods in the front and the back of the house. Talk about a down pour! Holy goodness! Where are the sidewalks?!?!

OK enough for today, I hope everyone has a great day!


  1. Glad you're feeling pretty well and you're getting some help!

  2. Yum! I need your friends to come cook for me. It all looks delicious. And I'm glad you are healing well!

  3. Hi Chris! I also hope for speedy healing.

    Even if you're not exercising, that doesn't mean you have to gain weight. Calorie control is at least 90% of the battle.
