I am SO blessed.
Even though I’ve felt awful all day long, God has blessed me so much with this blog and the support from yall. Even when I felt at my worst today, reading your smiley comments made me feel even a little better. I cannot even thank you enough! I had no idea going into this that I would feel so awful……a couple years ago when I had the same surgery I was totally fine and then this time all hell breaks loose! Grrrrrrr
Anyways, please excuse my previous post because I was writing it and not even comprehending what I was writing. As I said before, it took me like five tries to get the post published. I think I was on, like, another planet all day long. My mom said I was talking and moaning in my sleep and for the life of me, I don’t remember talking to Ryan on the phone or saying goodbye to mom as she headed to work. After the initial puke (haha sorry), I called my doctor and told him what happened and he said it was probably because of me swallowing blood (again gag sorry) during the surgery and that I should drink some juice or a smoothie just to get something in me.
Well, I ended up throwing up a few more times then falling in and out of sleep for another hour or so before my dad went to Smoothie King for me and brought me back a huge strawberry/kiwi/something? to get some fluid in me. Since I’m not allowed to use straws for a few weeks, he poured a little bit of in a soup bowl for me to have.
This was probably only a 4th of a huge 28oz smoothie? It tasted AMAZING to me! At this point, the football game started and I started feeling a little hungry and better from the smoothie. So, I made what I like to call:
Sunshine in a Bowl
Serves 1 (easily could be doubled or tripled)
In a small saucepot, simmer about two cups (eyeball it) of organic chicken stock. Add a few sprigs fresh thyme and a squeeze of a whole lemon. When simmering, drop an egg in and stir with a fork for a few minutes so that the egg cooks and creates thin little eggy strands all throughout the soup. Season with fresh ground pepper and serve.
This seriously brought me back. You all HAVE to try this soup next time you are feeling under the weather. I think I’ll make more tomorrow. There’s not much else I CAN eat right now except soups, poached eggs, yogurt, ice cream, jello……….
And then around 9:00, my mom came home from work and brought me coconut D’lites! I didn’t want to try to eat the whole thing (because of my tummy), so I just scooped a little bit into a mug:
I’m starting to feel a little pain but don’t want to take another vicodin so I took an ibp800 instead. Still watching the game right now (ryan’s there!) but I probably will head up for the night soon. Even though I hated to do it, I’m so glad that I called to cancel my place in the Publix training workshop I’m supposed to go to tomorrow morning at 8. The workshop isn’t even in Tampa and I think I need another morning to be in bed and rest.
Thank you all again for being so supportive and sending good thoughts and prayers my way! Much appreciated 🙂
