This Week's Menu

Ahhhhh, it's good to finally "be back."  I mean...I am not fully back.  I am still in pain.  I have some weird fluid build up on my right side that is putting pressure on other organs and nerves including one in my hip which is now pinched and makes it incredibly painful to walk.

But, I am eating almost normal.  Everything has to be modified to completely low fat, but I guess that is a good thing huh?  I still have to remind myself to eat.  I have to force myself to take another bite when I don't want to chew anymore.  But I guess 15 days in the hospital mostly spent not eating will do that do you.

I'm sure I've mentioned this in a previous post...but I've lost 23 pounds through this whole process. I have a hard time recognizing myself in the mirror still some days.  I've had to buy new jeans.  It's weird seeing myself shrink away.  It's definitely not the way I would have hoped for it to happen though, but I am going to try and take this opportunity to keep it up and stay as healthy as I can be. I am terrified of landing back in the hospital with another flair up so I am willing to do anything, even if that means never having a glass of wine again.

All I can say is that pancreatitis can suck it.

This week's menu will be light.  I am actually going to a blogging conference in Salt Lake City on Thursday and coming back Sunday so I am going to plan food until I leave and then I will leave the rest up to Matt and my mother in law, who has been staying with us for the last 3 weeks helping with the kids and helping me mend.
