Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

Tonight, my friend and I ate at the Himalayan Indian Cuisine in Sioux Falls East Side. I looked at the menu ahead of time to make sure there was going to be something I could eat and found Chicken Tikka (Tandoori). I ordered that with the rice along with an order of Naan bread (which I shared). WOW!!!! A huge platter of Chicken Tikka came out followed by the rice and bread. Incredible medium spices and heat, the taste and tenderness of the Chicken Tikka was so delicious and fresh tasting. It was an awesome night with my friend. And I brought plenty of it home for lunch tomorrow.

I am down 18 pounds of fluid due to severe edema in a week’s time, thanks to a high dosage of Lasix. I am almost done healing on the outside of my belly, knock on wood. My zipper belly is completely healed, incision wise. One not-so-big scar is left over now. And my drain hole is nicely closing up too. At least I no longer have to wear a bandage over it with the cloth tape. I still wear a spandex tank and my stomach binder underneath my clothes just for protection still. And security for me.

I still get very tired after working only 4 hours and I still need to sit or lay with my legs propped up higher than my heart.

This is a short post due to the reasons that I stupidly stayed up too late to watch the finale of Survivor. And again, I am very disappointed with the winner. Not too thrilled about the upcoming Season 38 either.

PS: instagram peeps: i changed my moniker from @wetinkwisdom to @bohemianburble

PEACE OUT.

More Protein Please!!!

My doctor contacted me today after my blood work came back today. I am officially not diabetic anymore. And I am in good shape with my kidney functions and my sodium levels are normal. I am still low on Iron but am taking pills for that and my total protein is low. So I need to contact my dietitian on Monday and ask her for recommendations.

Basically I know what to eat for protein but my new eating habits just don’t like what I used to eat for protein and my mindset just isn’t on track yet.

This photo to the left is what I resembled this morning at 6:30AM. My first time wearing eye liner/mascara in 43 days. And I’ve had necklaces hanging up in my bathroom for three years and today was the first time wearing one.

Now that I’m a new human, I feel like changing up my look again and go back to being more girlie. I even went to Old Navy this late afternoon and bought a lot of things of super cheap clearance… including two more T-Shirt dresses. Each one cost $2.88. They were $29.99. I also got a couple of new — smaller size — cardigans and dirt cheap but overly adorable shirts… one of them cost a whopping 58 cents. It was clearance upon clearance upon clearance.

Tomorrow I’ll head over to Sam’s Club and find things that are chock full of protein. Then it’s LEGS up, Netflix on and a lazy hazy Saturday while I continue pee all day long, thanks to my Lasix pill.

Have a fabulous protein-filled weekend!
