I am feeling great! Thank you for all your support, best wishes and prayers!
Today I turned to get something in the house and ran a couple of steps (I wasn't thinking) and it did not hurt, it actually felt wonderful.
I stopped short and walked though, don't want to explain any mistakes to my very very strict surgeon.
I am shooting for 800cal a day with 60g of protein. But am not really hitting the target every day. I try to keep to that pesky eating schedule (50ml of soup or shake every hour for 12 hours of the day, drinking 50ml every half hour in between)
On busy days I don't do it absolutely right. (I suppose it is not necessary to get to OCD about it)
I have picked up my Two Year Old twice now, and it did not hurt.
Now is when we have been warned not to get to gung ho and tear something. I am so thankful for a quick recovery so far.
(The secret is LOTS of walking, Sparkies!)
I have been asked to give horse riding lessons to children with ADHD by a friend who has a riding school. I am not qualified, but I have 30 years of horse experience and a child with special needs who has done horse therapy that I helped with. I am very good with kids.
I am thinking about it, the problem is that it is after school, and I then do not have anybody to look after my three.
I don't want to get involved in the competitive riding part of the horse world at all. I would love to get them horse safe, teach them basic equus (horse body language) and get them into rhythm (that is excellent for ADHD) balanced on a horse, and teach them their leadership role as the rider, and about that responsibility.
After they know that, they have to go on to the other instructors.
It will work if it can be during school hours some time. If not, I won't be able to do it at all.
I had to chop my curly shoulder length hair off, because it was falling out like crazy. It is expected after RNY, so I am not to bothered.
I am enjoying the short new pixy style, but it is COLD am having to wear a beanie or a hoodie now...
Thank you for reading my blog!
(By the way, I almost forgot to tell you the best part! I have lost 9kg since May 14, surgery day. That makes it 29kg since February 6)
