Day 16 post op

0.6 from yesterday 40 to date

I had a major episode of the bads yesterday. I was sitting on the phone talking to my friend and all of a sudden, my hand started shaking. I looked at it and said," Is my hand shaking?" Before I could formulate that complete sentence in my mind, it was shaking and there was no doubt about it. My immediate thought was that my blood sugar was low so I ran and ate some of The Kids leftover Halloween candy. That seemed to work, but then about 15 minutes later, I felt it come on again. I wasn't sure if it was my own anxiety or low blood sugar but it was still VERY scary. Luckily, it was at the end of the day and Periodic Table was able to rush home. He called the doctor's answering service and when the doc finally called me back, he said that it sounded like it could have possibly been a volume depletion. With either answer clearly I wasn't taking in enough of something. As sick as I am of shakes, yesterday I choked them down nonstop. I absolutely DO NOT want to feel like I felt yesterday ever a friggin gain. Today I had a bit of anticipatory anxiety, but I breathed through it, said a little prayer, and I've been feeling pretty good.

Today I went to lunch with Dimples (she's the ex of a relative) at the Olive Garden. I'm really iffy about some of their food, but I know that their soup is Sa-Lammin.  Other than being really miffed at their nonsensical seating distribution system, we had a really great time. I ordered the zuppa toscana, ate about half of it and I was done. She'd ordered an appetizer, but I'm still in the testing stage and didn't know what one more bite could have done. I didn't want to have to pick zuppa toscana bits off of my clothes after Sleevie karate kicked them back up my esophagus.  The dinner was great and I give it a roses and rainbows rating of 9!
