Ahh, to drink

I see Jake has already updated everyone on my appointment yesterday. I'm so happy to be able to drink/eat, but a little disappointed that it is harder than I thought it would be. Seems everything this go round has been harder than I thought it would be. With each hurdle I overcome I enjoy it for about 10 seconds before I start focusing on the next hurdle to overcome until I'm back to normal. I look forward to a good fight over who left the mess on the family room floor! If you and your kids/spouse have just had this argument, count your blessing that there is nothing else going on in your life to make you not sweat the small stuff. I've learned that sweating the small stuff means all is well in the world and I look forward to doing my fair share of it soon.

I've had a steady stream of help since I came home over a week ago. Rochelle, Cheryl and the two Grandma's have been priceless. I have such a hard time asking for help and giving up my independence, but this group has made it easy. Thanks!

Jake, my rock. If anyone ever said, "in sickness and health" during their wedding vows and meant it, it was Jake. I told him the other day I was so glad we had known each other for 20 years so he knows I'm not always high maintenance. I know this has been far from easy for him, but you'd never guess he's probably as tired as I am. I hope to never put you in this position again babe.

I thought about my days watching Survivor last night. How they would go 30 days eating nothing but rice and once they got to eat normal food their stomachs went crazy. That milkshake yesterday made my stomach grumble all night.

your stomach will remember those milkshakes and then you won't wanna stop having them :)

keep up the good work, every day you are one day closer to getting back to normal!

I am amazed at how well you are doing! I am such a wimp when it comes to anything medical, so I am in awe of how brave and strong you are!! It is wonderful!
