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!

*gentle hugs*

When I had my laproscopic gallbladder removal, the first days were pretty rough. By the sixth and seventh day, things were much more normal and moving around was almost normal.

The pain killers that I was on cause digestive slowdowns, which created another set of discomfort issues. I believe that you have avoided this particular issue ;-)

Sooooort of. A liquid diet tends to make that semi-moot. Only semi, though.
