Best wishes for a quick recovery, GG.

Wow, get juiced up and get out of there fast! For your sake I hope you get to go home tomorrow (or would that be "today" by now?) Feel better. ((hugs))

Me too. I was pretty good and held off until he started up with his parting speech. Besides, Sandy Bullock got me going last night when her faucets started to leak.

I'm "wine"ding down from a busy day. Three new recipes today, one for our dinner and two baked items. Chicken dinner was a winner, the bakery not so much. Definitely edible, but the recipes aren't worth saving.

I drink a LOT of coffee. And the caffeine in coffee is a diuretic. I can tell when I am becoming dehydrated. The condition on my skin changes and I notice it more on my arms. So when I see the change, I make it a point to get some water into me. Every time I have gone out in the ambulance, the first thing they do is start an IV, because sure enough I let myself get dehydrated. Oddly enough it is not a problem for me in the summer. I usually have an ice drink going. And when the cubes get small enough in my mouth they go. So I get water that way.

Becoming dehydrated is very serious. It can lead to failure of your organs and death. And with all the meds we are on, it is so easy to become dehydrated. Do be careful in the future GG. We would hate to have to miss you.

Day 5 of work and I am decidedly tired. But, I am managing. Having blood sugar problems this morning, so I will be a bit late into work.

After a major surgery, it is going to take you a good six months to get back to normal. Don't try to rush it.

I'm pretty much back, just a little tired. I'm handling everything just fine. My blood sugars have been trending down since the surgery, but waking up with a level of 55 is too darned low. I had to cook up breakfast and sit and eat it, instead of an on the fly breakfast as usual...putting me a bit behind.
