I am sitting up after breakfast, but I am definitely feeling a bit dizzy. I guess they are going to transfer me to a regular floor later today. I have not yet walked on my own, but they think I will be able to do that once I get to the regular floor. I have waked only with assistance while feeling out of it We will see
I did manage to eat some of their oatmeal, yucky as it was. But that was better than the dry hard-boiled eggs and pancakes. Everything tastes off to me, not sure why. Of course, by the time I get around to eating it, it is all cold. that does not help. I will try to order cottage cheese and fresh seasonal fruit again for lunch At least that is palatable regardless of the temperature.
So far today no shortness of breath, fever or low blood pressure. The attending in charge today said they were still watching my kidneys, but there was no danger at this point, and the surgery itself looked to be successful.
I keep feeling that if I could get up and walk, it would help get things in my body working again like they should be. Maybe I will actually do better after getting to the regular floor and start moving around more.
