I never intended this blog to be about my health issues, and I promise, I will try to keep it from becoming one, but all of you are so caring and concerned that I want to give you a brief update since last night! :D
I woke up feeling just fine, this morning! Such a blessing! No nausea, no swelling, no aches and pains, no fatigue (although I've been told it will come later). I didn't need to take any anti-nausea medications or even crackers to keep it at bay. I made and had a cup of tea. Ate bread and cheese for breakfast as that was what I wanted (went through and rejected a list of breakfast items including eggs, pancakes, French toast, waffles, cereal and milk, protein bars, nutritional drink, etc.! Picky, picky! :D) I am keeping myself hydrated and have drunk 2 cups of water so far (along with the cup of tea). My goal is to drink 10 cups of water, today (I've been told to drink 10-12 cups a day).
I am planning to have more of the Chinese fried rice and chicken from yesterday, for lunch, today. The chicken has onions and celery in it, and I will add some broccoli, as well, for more green veggies. Haven't decided on dinner, yet, but I might have baked chicken and vegetables (beets, carrots, green peas, maybe corn).
I've spent a relaxed morning, posting on-line, chatting on the phone with my neighbor who called to see how I was feeling, and having daughter pay a bill for me, on-line!
Plans for the afternoon include doing my holiday cards. I have bought my stamps for holiday cards, but I had planned to make my holiday cards, this year, so haven't bought any cards! I will have to either make some simple ones this weekend, or have daughter buy me a box or two when she goes shopping, next! Oh, and I need to make two thank you cards, as well and get them in the mail!
Today, I am feeling grateful for:
- My many, many blessings!
- Lack of nausea
- Minimal side effects
- Everyone's prayers and caring
- Having the perfect excuse to just relax ("I'm resting!") :D
I am wishing you all the lovely Saturday. Hope all is well with you and your family and loved ones. Have a blessed day!
