One thing I didn't realize

One thing I didn't realize about this surgery was how tired I would be. Not from the surgery itself really, but from the small amounts of food I'm taking in. I think I told you all that one of the things being done was removing my gallbladder. The other involved operating on my stomach. So, I have an incision in my stomach. I can't have solid food yet, and there are quite a few things that I can't have because they'd irritate. For now I can have sips of water and protein shakes. Yesteday I got about 400 calories total for the day. That's normal. I'm under a surgeons supervision have had numerous tests and will have frequents tests of vitamin levels and other things to make sure I'm ok. (in other words, please don't try to live on 400 calories a day cause it sounds fun ok?)

So the point of this post is to say I'm tired. So very tired.

Hang in there! Sounds miserable. I can't imagine 400 calories a day. I hope your body (and your family) starts getting used to the program and heals up quickly. I'll be praying for ya. :)
