I’ve been eating a lot better since coming home from the hospital.
FOODS I’VE EATEN A LOT LATELY:
Weetbix with prunes, bananas, grapes and strawberries in light milk, with a teaspoon of raw sugar
Porrige with light milk and strawberry jam
2 pieces of Toast with Jam, peanut butter or occasional Nutella 😛
Scrambled eggs on toast with spinach and other veg
Bacon and egg sandwich with loads of veg on MG bread
Salad and ham sandwich on MG bread
Baked potato with pineapple, ham, sour cream, cheese, butter, beetroot and bolognaise sauce
Quiche Lorraine / potato and leek quiche
DINNER (Always with half a plate or so of salad or veg – aside from pizza)
Roast meats and veg
2 wafers (3am feed, usually)
Piece of toast
Tub of Yoghurt
Piece of toast
Cup of tea or weak coffee (maybe 2 a week, if that)
Mainly Ribena weakened cordial
occasional water / fruit juice or milk.
I’m probably haing about 2-3.5 litres of fluid a day.
(Over the past 2 weeks we’ve only had 1 meal in a restaurant, where I had a calzone and part of my hubbys schnitzel and salad, and we went to hungry jacks once, and I got a regular tropical bacon deluxe meal with diet coke.)
So far we’ve really only been walking twice. Once for 10 mins, and once for about 40 mins. The weathers been chaotic lately and we’ve been exhausted and busy so we haven’t done much.
On that night I couldn’t sleep, I tried doing some squats. I couldn’t squat very far, or for long, and it really hurt. I think I managed 12 “squats”for 5 seconds each.
Whilst feeding I usually roll or flex / point my legs, and shake my feet. I’ve been trying to do pelvic floor exercises when I remember (which isnt very often at all really.) My mother carer nurse said that just walking around and feeding is exercise enough for now.
