It’s all progress… second full day at home and I’m starting to feel like me at times 👍 After the anesthetic and so many antibiotics my healthy gut is not so healthy 😕 grumbling loudly pretty much all the time and grumpy with anything I consume. Pacing myself with Ketones, bone broth and collagen to try and do some damage control. And sleeping LOTS. I did get out of the house yesterday for an exciting small lap around Walmart and today to go and hang out at the gym with a good book while my girl did the WOD. Both of which required a nap afterwards, but it felt good to get a change of scenery and some fresh (snowy 😖) Ontario air. For the most part, I’ve claimed my corner of the couch and am just spending time relaxing and recovering with the best “nurse” I could ask for ❤️ I added some Amped Ketones back into the mix this morning again after favouring the one with the probiotics and prebiotics for the last few days to help my gut. The Amped helps my brain work better though, so I’ll be back to sharing helping people find their version of BETTER very soon too 😊
Hopefully heading home today! 🤞Or at least getting unhooked from some of these machines so I can get up and shuffling around! I don’t tolerate drugs well at all. Pain drugs make me barf. Anti-nausea drugs do the same. Yesterday started hugging the barf bucket and a loved time spent in recovery post-surgery before heading to my room. Best solution, live with the pain as much as possible and sleep LOTS. Today will be better 🙂 I have the best “nurse” at home ❤️
Ok, I’m at work and bored and entirely unfocused because there’s too much going on in my head to think about drafting invoices and purchase orders. Thankfully my boss gave me a get-out-of-jail-free card today for my un-productivity. Tomorrow I have surgery. I’ve known about it for months and gone through a whole range of emotions, the current one being a mix of impatience and acceptance. I’ve also set out over the last few weeks to make sure I’m as healthy as possible so I can heal QUICK and get back to doing all the stuff I like to do. When I got the call last week with the time of my appointment, I was a little bummed cause I have to be at the hospital at 6am. 😦 First thing I said to my girl “boo. I won’t have time to go for a run first.” Yup, that’s me in a nutshell. Send me good vibes and stuff at 8am tomorrow, k? I’ll let you know how this goes!
