I love the Sunshine! But the last 3 days I could have cared less what it was doing outside. I had high expectations about being back at work on day 3 after my surgery. HA! double HA! It was impossible. I do feel like a human today and have showered and dried my hair, but I am still not ready to go back to the shop. But to anyone that is thinking about the lap band, it is not easy. Clear liquid are Okay for a day maybe 2, but by day 2 I was dreaming of a hamburger Pattie, I realize I may never be able to have a hamburger Pattie again. So the second night I dreamed of softer foods, like soft creamed potatoes. I am on day 4 and I just had Yogurt, it was smooth and had taste and it was by far the best yogurt I had ever had. It will be March 23 before I am allowed to eat soft food. My stomach has to heal. I haven't felt hungry but I just needed more of a variety. So as you may have noticed there is a weight loss ticker on the side and by my home scales I have lost quite a bit. I will not up date it until I go to the doctor in Tuesday to get out my staples. Have a good weekend, and thank you for all the well wishes.
