I would say, if you can, it might be wise to avoid serious gastrointestinal distress when recovering from a major surgery. On Friday night, one of two things happened: either I hit a major patch of gluten contamination or I fell prey to a virus. The silver lining is I lost A LOT of my prednisone weight, and because I couldn’t take that devil drug (because nothing would stay inside for long), I finally rested. Deeply. For a long time.
Funny thing though, spending a bunch of time in bed set my vestibular system (or what’s left of it) back a bit. I’m up and moving, and hope to hit 1,000 calories today and resume building strength again.
I’ll be watching the Oscars tonight. My one sneaky hunch is Sandra Bullock.
