tiffany's tonsillectomy diet

so I thought I would humor you all with what I have been eating. For those out there who think I get to eat all the ice cream I want that is not true. Dr's orders, at least not until Saturday. My mom is being a real good nurse and making me follow the
anyways here was my day yesterday:
Breakfast- strawberry Popsicle
Lunch- jello
Dinner- chicken broth
Late evening snack- jello
Middle of the night snack- broth
Throughout the day- drinking lots of water, Gatorade and juice

So far I have managed to stay well hydrated so that is good.

On a funnier note I finally knows what it feels like to have a little sleep apnea/snore. So my uvula and the back part of my throat are pretty swollen that if I sleep straight on my back without turning to my side then my darn uvula blocks my airway and I either wake up because I can't breathe or because I start snoring. It has been fun for my mom to see me wake myself up because I'm snoring. I've been reassured that it is no where near what my dad snores like.

So that was a random tangent. Starting to feel dopey again. My mom is doing a great job of staying on top of the pain even waking me up in the middle of the night. That explains why I'm up now. Alright I'm out.

Just call me Dopey

Here i am sporting the beautiful hospital least it is blue, cause that is my momma looking a little worried, but its fine i did alright. So i recovered. I'm now at home. I'm pretty sure I proved the myth wrong that "nurses make the worst patients." At least that is what the nurses were saying, although they could be lying to me....because i know i have been guilty of that before.

Anyways, I'm doing well. It hurts to talk, so sorry if i ignore phone calls, but i'm pretty good at texting. My momma is taking good care of me, definitely staying on top of those pain meds, which actually make me feel kind of is kind of nice/fun, and all i want to do is sleep. I stayed up enough to see a part of the presidential debate. Only 19 more days to vote, crazy.

Sad but true fact....I'm sad i missed jackie today for the workout. I guess will just have to do it sometime when i'm feeling better.

random post....i'm sure there will be more to come. if you are bored and want to visit, let me know, i will just be here for like the next two weeks.

bye bye tonsils.....

so i'm sitting here waiting to go to surgery. I've got my lovely hospital gown on and iv in so now I'm just waiting. No more tonsils after this. I would post pictures but I haven't figured out how to do that with my iPhone yet. Something I will have to learn how to do after this.

Last Supper

Comfort food for dinner last night, pasta and salad. The last thing I ate before midnight because now i'm NPO as we like to say in the hospital. It was quite delicious and i followed it with a scoop of pumpkin ice cream just before midnight to hold me over for the 12 hrs that i can't eat or drink anything.

OSU Beavers...

Saturday I had the opportunity to head down to Corvallis with Katie to see the Beavers play Wash. St. It has been a long time since I went to a game and it was fun getting decked out in OSU gear and cheering the team. I love college football. I was a little worried that the beavers weren't going to win by much, but luckily they got it together and beat the 30-point spread. It was a great time as always hanging out with Katie.

Thanks Mom and Dad for the ticket. You guys have great seats (50 yard line, third row back).Katie and I tailgating

So i'm a bad blogger...Now there is this pressure to frequently update to make sure that i stay near the top on the recently updated list on Recreate's blog...Last weekend i had a fun time hanging out with friends as always. I wasn't very good at taking pictures, except one night with Katie. For some reason Katie and I are good at taking pictures. Here are some pictures from last weekend...

Revenge of Curtis P's...

Monday at the gym involved an exercise a move called the curtis P (hang squat clean, lunge each leg, then push press of course holding dumbells). Now, prior to Monday I liked this move because it was a dynamic movement, good in short amounts. However, this is not true now after Monday. The workout involved doing too many of these Curtis P's and now they are on the list of exercises I don't like, along with many other things.

Mainly why I don't like it is related to the fact that I have been waddling all night at work from my butt being so sore. It was bad enough that a fellow coworker pointed out the fact of my waddle. As well as how long it would take me to get from sitting to standing and standing to sitting because my legs are sore as well. Oh well, i guess it is all worth it for being physically fit. I am looking forward to using my foam roller at home. Maybe i should change the title of this post to "Thank goodness for foam rollers..."
