First Post-Op Visit & Meeting Another Friend From OH Board

So this afternoon I went to see Dr. G and had that J-tube removed--that was the tube they used to give me my psych meds in the hospital the first few days when I wasn't allowed anything by mouth. Wow! I can't believe it's been a week since I left the hospital!

I am doing great, feeling fine and have graduated to "mushies"! Today TB made a delicious soup with ground turkey, bok choy, kale, celery, mushrooms and carrots and put them into the blender so that I could enjoy it too. It was soooo delicious! I'm looking forward to adding a whole lot more variety to my menu now and am taking it nice and slow!

I've lost 24 lbs since starting with Dr. G; 14 of that has been since the surgery!

All week, I've been texting with another member of Obesity Help who went in for surgery exactly a week after I did. I wanted to be able to visit her and today we did! We'd been texting and talking on the phone all week so it was a real pleasure to meet her in person. We had fun talking and she said that us southern NJers needed a social group of our own to get together as others do on the OH board and have fun. She suggested the name NJDS and I'm all for it!
