Stay’n Alive

My new ringtone STAY’N ALIVE, thought it was most appropriate for Day 66. 🎢🀣

My short-term disability ended today. Back to full-time on 12/31 with mandatory OT for the next 3 weeks.

I still have a lot of edema in my legs….so besides Lasix, I am also on Metolazone.πŸŽͺπŸ€Ήβ€β™€οΈΒ Let the party begin.Β πŸŽ‰πŸ₯ƒπŸ€£πŸ€©

This weekend I plan on keeping my legs up, wearing my compression socks, drinking a ton of water and getting in several much-needed naps to gear up for my first 8+ hours of work since October 17th.

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!
