I am finally going back to work today. Nothing like spending a whole week’s vacation time being ill, down and out, and unable to do anything.
The upside of this is that I am feeling better–not 100% by any means, but well enough to return for a day of work. My two daughters are coming this afternoon to clean and do the laundry for me–things I wasn’t able to accomplish this past week.
And while I was off, I did make reservations for a cottage in Chincoteague, VA–one of my favorite places–for a week in September. Both daughters and my granddaughter will be coming too–along with my son, girlfriend and her two children. My son and entourage will only be staying for a three day weekend, but it will be wonderful to have a vacation which is a “true” vacation….something I haven’t enjoyed in 10+ years.
So, as I recuperate I’ve been able to progress from a clear liquid diet (for 3 days) to a low fiber diet. I’ll be on the low fiber for approximately two weeks while gradually working my way up to a high fiber (25-30 grams/day).
And this time….I’m going to listen. This is my 4th bout with this diverticulitis–totally not enjoyable–and I’m going to do my best to avoid getting this again.
Just a quick note–off to get ready for the work week.
Remember the June giveaway….today is the last day to enter!!
