So, I had surgery last Monday (5/12) and recovery has gone a little slower than I had anticipated. Most of the pain is now gone, but my stomach has not been happy. I've been limited bland foods because anything else makes my stomach go haywire! Ugh!
I think (I hope) I am turning the corner with that. I took my son out for dinner last night at Texas Roadhouse. It was a fundraiser for a cousin that has Prader-Willi syndrome and Friday is Brady's birthday so I thought "why not?" Looked at the menu and knew I couldn't eat most so I went with the veg plate. Here was my order: salad (no cheese or egg) with honey mustard on the side, fresh veggies, sweet potato (cinnamon butter on side) and Apple sauce. Barely used the dressing or butter and I really do mean that. It was good. Best thing? My belly didn't get upset!
Today, I feel pretty good. I might head out for a short run/walk to see how it goes. First exercise since I ran the Pittsburgh relay on 5/4. That's when I got sick. I'm ready to get back to it. I'm ready to reach for my goals. I'm ready to prepare for the MCM and Dopey challenge. Let's do this!
