The first five pounds disappeared during the night and I expect the rest to flow off within a week - especially if I keep walking. It was a big deal to identify shapes and feel bone!
These constant hospital admissions are wearing me down - especially the ones that involve 'round the clock heart monitoring, roommates, an alarmed bed, etc. This last four-day stint was more grueling than the 34 days I stayed there in December and January.
Today I pretended I was normal and acted accordingly. I wore jeans (that no longer fit) ate real food, read a New York Times best seller and mostly stayed out of bed.
My best moment was seeing Steve arrive to drive me home.
