Days 5 and 6

Let me start off by saying THANK YOU to all of you that have left me comments and support!  It means alot to me! 
So I'm noticing a lot less pain, which is nice, but it sucks, it is still uncomfortable to sleep on my left side. I've tried a pillow which helps some.  Sleeping on my back in a no go and by morning my right side hurts so bad from sleeping on it all night, but I'm guessing this too shall pass.
Now, my big complaint, why does every other commercial on TV have to be about food?!  I'm c'mon, don't they understand I'm on liquids only right now and they are not helping me any?  I'm starting to notice more and more hunger with each day.  Good thing I get to start mushies on Thursday!!  I'm looking forward to some scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, and refried beans, just not all at once!  I see my surgeon on Friday, so that's nice I can check in with him to make sure everything is going as planned.  
As for the disgusting part - reader beware - what's up with the bathroom issues?  I was worried about constipation, so day of surgery I asked my doc about miralax just in case...  No no, it's not needed, I'm so tempted to call and see if I can take some Immodium instead, but I'm afraid that will send me back to needing miralax.  Fingers crossed this passes as I eat more foods instead of all liquids
Anyway, other than that, I'm relaxing and enjoying my time off.  Seriously, watching movies and reruns on TV.  I even busted out my coloring books- yes I still color!   Now just to convince myself to go play Sims 3 on the upstairs computer or maybe something on my Wii....

I'm glad you are doing well. I'm here you on the sleeping. My stomach muscles hurt so bad I still can't sleep on either side. My stomach seems to have a voice of it's own - I did have a BM today for the first time --- ahhhh!!!
