      • Those are some pretty high level pain meds, so not too surprising they are causing some nausea. There's always the option of using gravol as well alongside the meds, though that does cause drowsiness, which may not be what you want.

        I've seen that coconut yogurt around here too, but haven't tried it yet. Doesn't it have a good but of sugar? I think I saw that on the label, but don't recall exactly. I do love the plain full fat liberte yogurt, it's nomalicious.

          She has tried the gravol with it. Doesn't seem to help. She says the pain is only bad if she moves quickly. She's not had any meds since she threw up this morning. She is using a Cryo-Cuff. We had a BIG day. She threw up 2x, had her 1st shower since the operation (I wrapped her leg in saran wrap and put a chair in the shower and a hose on the shower head) and I changed her dressing. After that she had a 3 hour nap

          Oh, yeah, there's sugar in it

          I ate the whole container today

          • I'd expect less potential nausea with the oxycodone than the hydromoprphone, but ymmv. I'n not specifically familiar with the cryo cuff, but it looks like it would be very helpful for both swelling and pain.

            • It seems to work fairly well. I think we'll stop taking the hydromophone and just try the oxycodone. Of course, right now, she doesn't want to take anything. Tired of throwing up.

              Saturday
              Chai, pj morning. I gave my parents a copy of Surfer Son's adventure (while they were in Florida we only gave them a condensed version) After they read it Mom said it was the scariest thing she'd ever read and that it was a good thing they didn't know everything at the time. They'd thought that because he was in a hospital all would be well.

              A good portion of the day was spent caring for my baby.

              Tonight I'm re-drawing my blocking diagrams for the play.

              Foods
              Chai
              Leftover salad:

              Coconut yogurt
              MCT oil shot
              Coconut yogurt
              Red wine
              Chicken, zucchini/feta boats, carrots and 1/2 baked potato (with butter, philly and bacon) coconut yogurt with the hot chicken. The rest of the yogurt for "dessert".
              I should not buy it again...but I probably will.
              We tried something new for supper. It was very good. Hot, but good. I forgot to take a photo until after we ate. Here's the leftovers...





              My Farmer found the recipe on AgTalk (a farmers' forum) there's no title.

              24 chicken drumettes/wingettes (we used thighs)
              1/8 cup freshly ground coriander
              1/2 tsp cumin
              1 Tbsp sea salt
              1/8 cup olive oil (I used more)

              1/3 cup Sriracha sauce
              8 Tbsp butter
              1/4 cup basil, fresh chopped or 1Tbsp dry
              1 lime juiced
              4 cloves roasted garlic

              Make a marinade with coriander, cumin, salt and oil. Marinade chicken for 4 hours.
              Grill on indirect heat for 30 minutes. Flip. Grill another 20 minutes.
              Meanwhile, over very low heat, melt butter and whisk with basil, lime juice, Sriracha sauce, and garlic.
              Toss cooked chicken in the sauce and cook another 10 minutes to crisp up the sauce.

              I baked it in the oven.

              • What I think works for me (or what worked before Europe)

                A bizarre combo

                Basic Primal +
                Bullet-proof Chai for breakfast (with whipping cream instead of butter, 'cause butter in my tea = YUCK)
                Shangri-La Shot (but NOT on an empty stomach - only after food)
                Eat More Fat
                Watching Amounts (NOT counting calories - I HATE that)

                And I think, most importantly, my sticker goals:

                NO Alcohol
                NO Sugar


                ~~~
                Of course, prepping for my 5K's, Mark's 5, and Shovelglove seemed to work too, but my back won't let me do that right now.
                ~~~

                Only took me 2.5 years Primal to figure it out...

                • Sunday

                  Daughter had a good sleep last night, I had an OK sleep on my foam pad.
                  My Farmer made me a frittata for breakfast
                  I worked on my blocking diagrams for the play.
                  Lunch was leftover chicken and yogurt.
                  I went to a ENJO "party" at Surfer Son's Girlfriend's house. 1st time I met her mother. Of course I bought something. The bathroom basic cleaning set. It's supposed to clean with just water. "Magic" cloths. Whatever. 30 day warranty. I do like the idea of cleaning without chemicals.
                  I brought the Girlfriend back home with me.
                  I finished the blocking diagrams before supper, with wine.
                  Roast beef, roasted potatoes and carrots. Coconut yogurt with a fried banana for dessert. (Yes, I bought more yogurt)
                  After supper we watched The Hobbit (I never made it to the theatre to see it)

                  I'm not prepared for my Home Instruction Student tomorrow morning.
                  I'm tired. Maybe I'll get up early tomorrow and prepare.
                  Stop laughing.

                    • Monday
                      I did wake up early (7:30) and I prepared for my 11 am Home Instruction lesson. We read the 1st chapter of Lord of the Flies. I've never read it before. The afternoon was spent looking after Daughter and setting up her 1st physio apt. It's Wednesday at 11, that will be one week from her surgery. I had play practice from 4-6 and then I stayed for the 2nd practice from 7-9. Looks like I'm Stage Managing for the whole evening. It's going to be a vaudeville style show. Short skits & songs and then our play. When I got home my farmer was on the computer, and Daughter had done some of her exercises. She was planning on going into school Tuesday afternoon so I helped her have a shower. After the shower, (interesting adventure involving saran wrap and a chair) Daughter was laying in bed and commented that her foot was cold and she wanted socks. Her left (the surgery foot) was significantly colder than her right foot. I dug through the info from the hospital and sure enough a cold or numb foot was one of the complications to look for. So I called the hospital and spoke to the orthopedic resident. Of course he wanted us to come in. By this time it was after 11. When she got out of bed she had sharp pains in the back of her leg. So we drove to London and emerg. By the time we got checked in and the resident checked her out, her foot was warm. He examined her, testing for numbness and he used an ultrasound machine to check the pulse in both of her feet. All was good, except for a slight numbness on the inside and top edge of her left foot. (possibly caused by swelling) So we came back home. It was 3:17 when I laid down.

                      I don't remember everything I ate...Chai, frittata, coconut yogurt and strawberries (supper while at play practice)

                      • Tuesday
                        Slept till 10 when my girlfriend's txt woke me. I was supposed to go there for tea at 10 to plan our friend's upcoming 50th birthday. I got ready, settled Daughter (her leg was feeling a little better) and made it there by 10:40! There were 3 of us there, we got quite a bit done. The party's not till June. I was home by 1, I called Daughter's surgeon and let them know what happened last night. Then I wasted the afternoon online, uploading some photos to the Facebook group for the Europe trip and surfing Pintrest. After supper Daughter and I went to my parents to talk about Easter supper. Home at 9:30. Bed will be soon.


                        I'm going to try a checklist. Again. Of course, I don't know why I'm starting it now, I might as well wait till after Easter...

                        Winencandy's Checklist

                        Basic Primal- cheese & grapes, salad, coconut yogurt, deviled egg, dried mango slices, hamburger with spaghetti sauce, fried banana with butter & whipping cream
                        Whipping Cream Chai - I had cream with my Chai at my friends, not sure of the %, I had one after supper
                        Shangri-La Shot - Nope
                        Eat More Fat - Check
                        Watching Amounts - maybe too many slices of mango, but only one plate of supper
                        NO Alcohol - Check
                        NO Sugar - Coconut yogurt has sugar in it, the spaghetti sauce probably did too.

                        Exercise - Nope
                        Sleep 7hrs

                                More or less
                                No wheat, but there were gluten free brownies
                                Too much sugar
                                There was wine
                                and Cadbury Mini Eggs

                                As Scarlet O'Hara said "Tomorrow is another day"

                                I'll see if I can kick the Dragon out the door tomorrow, but judging from past battles, there will be several tough days ahead...
