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!

I had the RNY, but what I'm reading from people online seems to confirm their experiences are similar. I think for my own sanity I'm going to go with "do what I can do and don't try to pour liquids down my throat" because I'd rather not meet goals than make myself feel sick trying too hard!

Yeah, the RNY is even more invasive than the sleeve, so drink what you can, but don't push it! You still need time to heal!
