My Son's Surgery Day

My son had his gastric bypass surgery yesterday. He has been doing really great and has been walking around a lot. Unfortunately, when they did the barium swallow this morning it showed a leak. So, he is on a diet of water and ice chips only and will spend another night in the hospital. Since he is also having problems with nausea, he really isn't disappointed about not getting to come home. Love our doctor and have the utmost confidence that he will take very good care of my son.
I continue to lose about a pound a day and am up to a loss of 23 pounds. Love that!! I'm also having some problems with nause and think that the problem is with the constant sinus drainage that I have had for years. Plan to go to my primary care physician and see if she can do something to help me out. Because of the nausea, I can't seem to stomach my vitamins and calcium, which are mandatory.
Found out yesterday when I went to the hospital for my son's surgery that I'm not completely recovered from the surgery yet. Wore some fitted jeans that aren't tight, but aren't stretchy. Made me SO SORE!!! Was also exhausted when I got home, so have rested up. Will go to the hospital tomorrow if my son isn't doing a lot better.
Looking forward to recovering enough to work in my scrapbook room. So ready to start cropping again!
