Je Suis a Paris!

Hello Hello from the City of Light!!

Bob and I are here in Paris after having travelled all night. Luckily I passed out and slept for the entire trip, no easy task when your knees are up to your ears and your upper body is ramrod straight. But I managed much to Bob's dismay as he did not sleep a wink. I was so out of it I didn't realize we were landing. I quickly jumped up to pee and of course met a fan in the line up. She looked fresh as a daisy but moi? Not so much. From the surgery point of view it was probably good that I slept sitting up because I am much less swollen now.

Hey my tummy is much better. Your advice which I greedily accepted helped tons. Between the Bio-K and Probifia acidophilus pearls my stomach is now flat. Oh god! Did I pollute the air in the plane all night in my sleep. Je m'excuse! I hope not! Thank you all for your amazing advice and speedy recovery to those who have also had surgery. I'm right here with you!

We are sitting in the hotel lobby waiting for our room - Bah! But at least we had some breakfast. I had not eaten since noon yesterday. I really am taking a break from Eating Clean while in Paris! Poor Bob. He is so tired I met him in the women's loo. Yep! So there I am freshening up and Bob is in the restroom looking at me funny. He says "What are you doing in the men's room?" I point to the sign that says Dames. He sheepishly grins and beelines it out of there before any ladies besides me notice.

We are waiting for a room here at the hotel and more exciting than that we are waiting to see Kelsey. She is meeting us at the hotel and we will head out to museum with her. I can't wait to hug her up!

I will post more later.
Je t'aime.

Toasca - this post just proves that you care so much about your "Sisters in Iron" that you blog even on vacation.
Thank you for keeping it real and honest. You are an inspiration to us all!
Love you lots!

Howdee Tosca,
Ok, the comment about polluting the plane had me giggling quite naughtily. You are so hilarious. Ever thought of writing comedy? I'd buy your book, for sure '-)
So good to hear you are doing well.
Keep enjoying your trip. Clean eating will be waiting for you soon enough.

I just returned from a month of living in Paris, and I'm glad I wasn't the only one who took a break from eating clean...It's a city of pleasure!

I have not been on your blog for a couple of weeks and am stunned! We had surgery the same day, for almost the same thing. I went from a 32D to a 32B?.
My implants where 320cc and I replaced them with 125cc. That's the smallest my doctor could find. I also had a lift and am healing beautifully so far. Today marks 2 weeks and I was told no working out until 3 weeks. I normally work out 5 to 9 hours per week and this is the longest period in ten plus years I have not worked out. I’m getting ready to turn 42 and don’t want to jeopardize my healing. I am assuming my body is using all resources for recovery and that if I worked out too soon, it could slow my healing? My body is busy repairing and recovering from surgery, I don’t want it to also have to repair from working out. We have to be patient and let our bodies heal:}
