My whirwind trip is over and I'm back home. Ole Alvin came up with the novel idea that he is going to concentrate on proteins and go low care. DUH!!! Where was he when the doctor gave him all of his instrctions?
But now it's HIS idea, buthe doesn't have a clue!!! Went to the grocery store to buy up things after we got home and what is the first thing he bags up? Great Big Huge Potatoes!!! no NO NO!!! I say, "can we even have potato SOUP" he askes. Maybe when you put the potatoes in the blender that squishes all the carbs out of them
Now for a question: You post-op people, how often do you see your surgeon? Alvin has only seen his once since he got out of the hospital the second time last August (almost a year). He sees his PCP regularly and he sends his blood work reports on to the surgeon, but I wish he actually saw the surgeon more so he (we, ME) could ask and get answers to some of the questions I have. (and maybe have the doc to tell him colas are a no-no etc). And of course he no longer goes to the support group meetings. HE doesn't need that kind of stuff!!!
Lori Congrats for getting your date moved up.
Peachie: I've been negelent in reading all the posts, do you have your date yet?
Jiff: sorry we couldn't make contact when we were in your neck or the woods, but we crammed so much in to these two weeks, I'm not sure we did justice to anything. On the way home we had to go by LEHIGH where my nephew is going to college and drive my Mom around the campus, so that took extra time.
Hope everyone has a great week.
