Tonsillectomy Blues

Sunday, April 28, 2013

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.

Penguin needs more variety.

Of course, I've dropped five pounds since Wednesday (last time I was weighed in, during my pre-op appt, and yes, I ate plenty until I wasn't allowed to Thursday evening). So, this is a good thing, although it's awfully rapid. But it's a head start to the weight loss and my gluten free life.

Yeah, about that. I guess it's been a while since I posted.
1. Heart issues are most likely stress related. Yeah, no sh**. I ooze stress out of my pores. It's been a part of my life for so many years now, it's just there... but now it's affecting my heart. Crud.
2. Trying to sort out why my body isn't liking things... I've come to the conclusion that I may be, at the very least, gluten-intolerant. My aunt has Celiac Disease, so I've seen that first hand.
3.Tonsillectomy: To try and 'make room' in my throat so that maybe I can sleep better (mild sleep apnea), we went for the tonsillectomy. Friday. Yes, I'm hungry. Sherbet doesn't cut it sometimes... and for adults, it takes much longer to recover... yes, it hurts. a LOT! I'm trying to not complain too much... really...

I'm trying... really... I think I need soup now.
