Healing and moving forward
So, the tonsillectomy is pretty much healed... there's still some kind of 'blockage' like the uvula is swollen or something... or just a large chunk of drainage from my sinuses that won't clear.... not sure yet.
Now I'm on to working on t... Read more
Day 8 of Tonsillectomy Recovery
Note to self: don't fall back asleep with a mostly full but open bottle of vitamin water in your hands... on your bed....
scabbing is starting to come off, I think. My body is craving protein, big time, but I'm still not sure if my stomach c... Read more
Okay, the veggie broth isn't nearly as good as the beef broth (both Trader Joe's concentrate packets), and I'm already getting sick of popsicles and sherbet. I think the soups are next on the agenda... and it's only been since Friday.

stairs and stuff
So, I'm having difficulty reaching my fitbit daily goal of 8K steps. I think part of that is my injury to my butt/hip. I fell down some stairs a couple weeks ago, resulting in a very deep bruise on one butt cheek, and thus irritating my IT Band ... Read more
New year... blah... blah... blah...
So, Sunday evening, I was having a conversation with a new friend. We talked about weight and girl stuff (two straight girls and three gay guys at one table, the girls gravitate toward girl stuff). I mentioned that I've been trying to lose weigh... Read more
