Hope you guys had a super fantastic Friday! I spent Thursday and today working and further bracing for surgery. Yesterday I started to makeover my crutches (pictures soon) and today I got my disability forms and I formulated my post-op grocery list.
After surgery I'm usually sick to my stomach and I lose my appetite for about 3-4 days. What food I do eat is usually on the bland side. I figured I'd share my list with y'all... maybe it'll be useful to someone
1) Ice Pops - If I need to be intubated during surgery, my throat will hurt like a mofo for a few days. Ice Pops (or Italian Ices) definitely help sooth a sore throat. Unfortunately ice cream is too heavy to do any service here :(
2) Ginger Ale - It has a tiny bit of flavor, and it helps with tummy issues... gotta love it
3) Coca-Cola - NOT PEPSI, Coke syrup helps with nausea
4) Bread & Butter - A classic "my tummy will kill me if I eat, but I have to eat" meal
5) Saltines - The classic "I think I'm gonna hurl I need to eat something" cracker
6) Turkey - When my appetite starts to pick up, Turkey is bland enough to not upset anything
7) Cereal (I like Cheerios) - Great for when you want a little nosh
That's about it there, do you guys have any post-op noms you wanna share?
Fanny will be removed in about 4 days, and I'm still not nervous. It's probably because I've been occupied with work, and said work has been really enjoyable. Keeping busy definitely helps the nerves. I'll be veeerrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyy busy on Monday so hopefully that'll keep the jitters at bay. If not, Monday night I'll take a handy dandy valium and that should do the trick! I have some potential plans to keep busy this weekend, gonna try and get out of the house for as long as possible... cause I'm pretty much gonna be spending the next 3 weeks at home.
I need to start coming up with things to do while I'm stuck in the house. Can any of you guys recommend and good movies or TV shows to watch? I have just been informed that the best show of the 90's "Dinosaurs" is on Netflix in it's entirety, that should take up a few days ;) The main thing I'll be doing is spreading the word about my Scentsy Fundraiser. If you guys could pretty please spread the word with me it would mean a lot :) You can now grab the button for the fundraiser and put it on your own blogs! (again, if anyone has a charity they want me to promote, hit me up)
A word to my local readers, I will be having a physical scentsy party on September 29th. Email me if y'all would like some info on that!
Well, that's about it for tonight, have a great weekend everybody!
