Oh, Right, I'm Home
Now you see why I wasn't too worried about spamming you with surgery updates, let alone TMI ones. I got home Wednesday evening, and have been... varying degrees of awake and alive since.

Some math that is now my day: I'm supposed to down 64 oz of fluids per day and 60-80 grams of protein. Since I'm still on a liquid diet, these obviously coincide at the moment, but still... It's almost 6 and I've managed about 16 oz of fluid so far. It'd be a whole lot easier if I didn't feel like crap when I drink more than an ounce in an hour or so.

Luckily I get to count liquid hydrocodone, woohoo! (Sadly not towards the protein.)

On the plus side, when I am awake and not feeling like crap, I'm managing to walk about half a mile a day (at around 1 mph, snerk). The later parts of the day just involve more sleeping and inability to concentrate on tiny lettery things on a screen.

Apologies in advance (and in retrospect for the last few posts) for my haphazard ability to reply to comments!

*Hugs you* You've checked in with the doctor about your inability to take in the required fluids, right? Being dehydrated is BAD. *More hugs*

I will if it stays an issue, but I've been getting close enough to it not to be too worried right now. (Today was a bad example, since I, erm, only woke up at 1. Cough.)
