I had a bad recovery day Friday. Thursday night I couldn't sleep because my back ached, my stomach was sore, my arms hurt from the IV hunt, and my leg hurt. I called the surgeon's office at 1 a.m., but by 3 a.m. I was finally falling asleep in my living room armchair. I had to be up by 7 a.m. to set up the garage sale, which was killer.
When I saw my PCP that morning she said I have been doing too much and I need to rest more this week.
After the garage sale I made a trip to the grocery store with my mom to get the soups I needed for week 2 of my liquid diet. I pureed a vegetable soup and was surprised to see what the blender can do. :)
I decided to have tomato soup for lunch and it was the most fabulous thing I had tasted in years. Thanks, lap band! I even saved some of it for dinner.
Later, I got into bed and rented Twilight. Nice love story I suppose, but I had issues with the way the character Bella comes off as such a weak female. Not the role model I truly want for my daughter. I haven't read the books, but they are on my list.
I also saw Knowing with Nicolas Cage. That had some fairly good scenes in it and I do enjoy Sci-Fi/Fantasy movies.
Anyway, I plan on relaxing today after this garage sale... looking forward to rest.
