So, today marks 18 weeks since surgery. This was 6 weeks after…
and this is today:
The scar is fading a bit, and my belly hair is growing back. You can still see it, but even a little progress is better than none. I’d hate to live forever with a nasty-looking gash down my middle.
Overall, I think I’m doing mostly better than I was. I had a bit of a scare on the weekend, my glucose and blood pressure numbers were up, but yesterday things were better, and I am pleased with this morning’s numbers. Trying a different breakfast today to see if that helps — instead of raisin bran I cooked up some oatmeal, tossed in a couple teaspoons of Grape Nuts and a couple teaspoons of shelled hemp seed, then topped it with a shy tablespoon of butter and a small splurt of honey. Not what I would call tasty, but edible. 🙂
Today in Houston we’re supposed to hit record-breaking heat, but not much rain forecast until later in the week.
