Major surgery

Fellow blogger Carole is out of her 10 hour surgery for rectal cancer and currently in a high dependency unit. I'm hoping that means she has skipped over the Intensive Care stage, generally a good sign. Thinking of you Carole.

Not a restful night. Feverish and achey until falling asleep at midnight. And that was after only 2x 1/2hr spells of exercise. Awake again at 6am, so after seeing J off to school went back to bed for a bit. Still aching but not so bad. If this is my muscles eating up their own tissue when I exercise it's not nice. Plan B is to eat carbohydrates while exercising and see if that helps! Porridge for breakfast and now off for 10 o'clock-ses (as opposed to elevenses) of boiled egg and toast.
10:30. 15 mins Wii aerobics while eating 1/2 banana! Let's see if that works.
4pm: 0.5mile walk
7pm: 15 mins aerobics while eating nuts and fruit.
