I had my one week check in yesterday – down 16 pounds – and everything is looking good. I am going back to work on Monday, part time. I am too exhausted to make it a whole day – just showering wears me out at this point. Which, on 400 calories a day, is not surprising.
Yesterday the doctor removed the sterile strips covering the scar and now it is just open. Looking good and healing properly. He emphasized continuing to meet my fluid requirements every day and meeting my protein. Good to go on both!
