Recovery continues. There was a slight blip last night that had us concerned, but I spoke with a nurse this morning and it is a common thing and nothing to be alarmed about. Thank you for all the support, encouragement, and well-wishes in your comments, e-mails, texts, and cards. It means a lot. I am neither foolish enough to believe there aren’t those who struggle with and through far worse, nor ungrateful enough to not realize I am lucky to have the care and support I need when I need it.
I order to reverse the effects of 6 months of inactivity and over-indulgence, we said good-bye to carbs yesterday. No more pastas, potatoes, breads, or sweets. Its all meats, seafood, veggies, and whole fat dairy from now on, so we placed a grocery order and stocked the house with all the acceptable foods! To kick things off, I made boneless pork steaks, onions, and mushrooms in a beef stock, Tamari, garlic, and ginger broth in the crockpot for dinner tonight. (More for Jeffrey than me, at this point, but I can sample a little.) It tis my first time making a meal since my surgery, and it feels good to be able to return to at least one of my domestic roles again. A well fed husband is a happy husband, or so they say.
I took a deep nap today and had that awful dream where I was trying to wake up but couldn’t move or make a sound. I hate when that happens and, for a several minutes after waking, I was shaken and upset. It was, otherwise, a good nap, and once my agitation had subsided, I felt quite refreshed.
I have started catching up on reading and commenting on everyone’s blogs, but I am woefully 2 weeks behind, so forgive my late and slow-to-come comments.
I have really been enjoying “Bridgerton” on Netflix. We are finishing up with Season 2 tonight.
We have planned our first “post-surgery recovery celebration” weekend trip to New Hope PA in mid-July, a place we’ve yet to visit, and look forward to exploring. (Any dining or must-see suggestions , Mistress?) We will be seeing “Kinky Boots” (again) at the Bucks County Playhouse while we’re there.
As promised, here are both memes that tickled my fancy…
…and a couple Harvey pics…
…and last but not least, it’s still pride month so…
Stay safe, all!
