Day three

I woke up feeling gross today.  The meds I’m on keep you from being able to do your “business” if you know what I mean.  This kept from being able to eat or drink very much this morning due to stomach pain. Once I made my nurse aware of the situation, she hooked me up with some drugs that will fix the problem, as well as gave me list of food items to eat every to day that should help.  I will also need to start taking medication on a regular basis for this.

I’ve gained 11 pounds since Thursday.  I may be eating more than normal, but not by that much.  I notice it the most when walking Bruno. I have a shortness of breath that is reminiscent of when I was over 300 pounds a few years ago.  I’m not going to stop walking Bruno, regardless of how I feel from this crap.

I would decribe my emotional state as generally not wanting to be here (referring to Dana-Farber).  I am working on a presentation for my company today, but I’d rather be in my office than sitting here.

    Hang in there kid! We’re all here for you. As Grampa V. always said … “this too shall pass!” You’ve got the right mindset as did I when I was diagnosed with diabetes. Its a life changing event … but … you’re approaching all of this from the right reference point (on your terms). Just stay the course and you’ll be fine. Love ya! Uncle D.
