Thank goodness for that!

Both of my boys were c-sections, and I remember (after boy #1) that they brought in a "celebration meal" for the happy parents. It had steak, asparagus, broccoli, potatoes and champagne. I was ready to dive in when the nurse reminded me that I was only alowed 2 oz. of broth for each meal for the next 3 days, due to my surgery. Rather than sending it back, the h ate both portions. grrrrrrrr.

I had no solid food for days! They said it was because I'd had surgery. At first I thought it was because he was emergency, and I was unconsious, but I got the same "no solids for 3 days" from son #2's hospital (different hospital, different county even) and he was scheduled.

Heh heh heh! They gave me a story like that too jkath. Apparently you just need to wait until your digestive system kicks back into gear...Bangbang style, if you get my drift.

I had a couple of c sections too, and after the second one they brought me a full tray of bacon, eggs, coffee and toast. I hoovered it quick! And sure enough a few minutes later the (snooty!) nurse came in and told me that I had to give back the tray as I was supposed to have a liquid diet. I can't tell you the pleasure it gave me to hand back that empty tray and watch her quietly freak out. Heehee. She thought I was going to die I am sure, but I felt like a million bucks. I was out of the hospital in less than 48 hours that time!

Five more months...Not long! It will go by quickly. Jkath, I don't get the "no solids" rule. No other standard surgery stipulates that, not for three days, at least. Hm.


Yes, Melody is quite beautiful, as is her sister. No prejudice here, of course!

Does anyone here collect Yellow Ware? I'm putting some online and writing the description -- I'd like some happy thoughts about how neat it is...

Talking

Don't feel bad Alix, and Jkath I was 18 and they put me on a 400 calorie diet for 2 weeks. I dislocated my knee and it pinched a blood vein, I was the Lucky winner of a Blood Clot. At least it went away much faster than they told me it was going to be. I only received Liquids for the two weeks I was there. I was Livid !
And I didn't have anything to show for it when I was done! Well Kind of a Nice Bill to Pay!
