I am home, a bit shaky, after a smooth operation to remove a parathyroid gland, and despite copious nausea after the op. And too I have survived 2 days of nothing but bread to eat! It started with being allowed tea and toast between 6am and 7am yesterday pre-op, which was scheduled for the afternoon. Eventually I came round enough to be able to nibble at, yes, a sandwich! Breakfast was great, really great for a diabetic, cereal, toast, prunes and orange juice. And for lunch today I had yet another sandwich. But I am alive and surprisingly my bsgs are relatively low and although a bit shaky I am so looking forward to real food tonight. I am pleased too that the calcium in my blood seems to have reduced, a sure sign that everything is on the mend.
My little poodle, Renae, was so pleased to see me home, it must be hard to be a little rescued dog and have your new owner disappear for so long, even though my daughter puppy-sat for me.
