Time for Another Update

It has been a very quiet week for us. Except for a few errands that Charley took care of and one visit with the nutritionist at the Duke Clinic, we stayed here at the 5er all week.

Most of the soreness is now gone around the surgical site for my feeding tube but I have a muscle pull that I am fighting with getting healed that came from trying to keep my coughing and stuff from hurting. You know, sometimes you just cannot win at this stuff!! Winking smile

I was out of it for over a day late this week with another migraine!! I think maybe the stress of all this medical stuff is beginning to get to me. This one also made me nauseous like the last one. Oh well. I will ask the doctor this week when I go in to write me a prescription for the Imitrex that they gave me in the hospital for this. It seemed to work well.

And Charley has to be getting tired of playing nursemaid again!! I do know he wants me to get back to where I was before this surgery as soon as I can. We will be getting back to the Fitness Center starting Monday and begin working back up to the level I was at previously. Don’t know how long this will take but we will get there!

The weight gain has not started yet really but the tube is keeping me from losing while I get my appetite back to normal. I am sure you have all been wondering if it is working. We will probably have a better idea after monitoring it this week.

Styed tuned and thank you for stopping by!!
