Eight inches baby

- One egg
- Small piece of pork tenderloin with a few mushrooms
- Four eggs with half a head of lettuce, mustard and Walden's bacon ranch
- Four pieces of spinach bread with Walden Farms pb & j

11 days out from Plastics and I'm still ouchie but progressing quite well, I think.  Sleeping proves to be the hardest part.  I was on my hands and knees cleaning my own bathroom today, though, so it's not like I'm letting any grass grow underneath me. 

My surgeon said that the bulk was not impressive as far as what he cut off as much as the length, top-to-bottom-wise, as far as my tummy goes.  I think it was about eight inches that he showed me with his hands, but it could have been as much as ten. 

My dad stayed the first three nights / four days with me and was really my knight in shining armor throughout this process.  We also bonded.  With boyfriend having his orientation that same week, it just worked out perfectly that he was here to help me.  Winning all round!
