I'm over the moon right now! I know these losses won't last but I am enjoying em' while I can get em'!
I'm doing good. Gas pains are getting fewer and farther between but when they come I just want to throw a temper tantrum like my 4 year old! I'm starting to get stiff from not being able to sleep like I want to. It's going to feel like heaven when I can start sleeping on my damn side again!
I started purees today!! Woo hoo! My cream of wheat this morning was delightful. I'm sure my tomato soup at lunch is going to be devine. I can't even tell you how excited I will be to have pudding! It's amazing how these things would have been last on my list and never would I get EXCITED over them. But after having protein shakes and gatorade for like 5 days it's like crab legs! (well, not quite...but you smell what I'm steppin' in)
It still feels weird when I say "My band" to someone... Or "I have the lap-band" still doesn't seem like it really happened! It's kind of like when I had my first daughter and I called down to the nursery and said "I'm Mackenzie's mom" It felt so weird... I was like I'm a frikken mom?
Well, I better get back to my difficult day of napping, walking, and eating small amounts of food!
