I got my grades today.


No, I didn't take any classes. I went to the doctor for my follow up appointment.

B+ for liquids. I'm doing a pretty good job at getting close to 64 ounces a day, but it's hard when the tummy is so tiny. It's sip, sip, sip the entire day. 

A for the way my incisions are healing.

C+ for my protein intake. I'm supposed to be drinking three protein drinks a day but it's a bit of a struggle. I've been adding protein powder to my soups, to my pudding, to my drinks. But I just can't get there.

I've been using the walker to get my walking in, I made it through the wonderful smelling foods on Christmas Day without partaking, and I've lost 19 pounds. But it's not enough. He's threatened me with an IV. (No thanks.) 

I'll work harder, get the water in, get the protein in. Three more weeks of it before the next appointment and by golly I want straight A's next time.

I do think I can claim all A's on the freezing fog we're having. Yeah, I went overboard on pictures...


  1. Nineteen pounds?! That's awesome! While all of us are stuffing our faces, feeling sick to our stomach's and gaining weight, you are healing your body, getting healthier and losing weight! So proud of you!!! ~Lisa

  2. I have never in my life seen such ice crystals. You say it is freezing fog that does that? It is spectacular, those photos are so great. Thanks for sharing such a treat!

  3. That next appointment must be this week coming up, I think. Best of luck on your grading! Congratulations on losing 19 pounds! And healing well. The pictures are gorgeous, an not overboard. I've read about this kind of formation, but I can't remember the name for it. These are amazing pictures, though.
