Such a happy title...
I received calls from both the dietitian and the main Nurse at the bariatric clinic this morning. They asked how I was and gave me support. 
How am I ... I think I'm ok. I am feeling gas pains that just want to stay in the gut. I was told that I can take chewable or thin strip Gas-X. Yay! Sarge will pick me up some on the way home tonight. 
Food-wise, I'm feeling waterlogged. Everything is liquid on a liquid diet...duh. Yeah, I take pills and wait 15-20 minutes to drink so they can be absorbed. I drink some protein drink - 11 oz takes me about 1.5 hours to get down. Then I have to wait for that to absorbe to drink water, decaf tea/coffee or broth. I am using Mango Health app (I have codes if anyone would like to try the app) to keep track of my meds. I'm trying to ween myself off the narcotics and just take the stuff for spasms and nausea. I really haven't been nausish, but I'm not tempting fate. 
I feel pretty good first thing in the morning then by 3 pm, I'm ready for a nap. then up and bouncy for a while in the early afternoon. 
I called my pcp about the cyst, she is getting me in to see a specialist. I should hear back this afternoon about when and where. 
On the knitting front, I have finished the top of one slipper for my eldest sister. I'm working on the second now. 
I am thankful for other podcasters that are keeping me company as I knit.
