Sounds like loose/flowing is the way to go. Tunic over leggings? It can be hard to make that look really professional, but the right accessories help.

Awesome new from work Re your nemesis. That had to make your day.

Sounds like you should have a nice flight with all those upgrades, lucky you. Smile


The flight was nice. They served a decent fruit plate for breakfast. Would have been better with bacon!

I'm "shopping" in my closet and have put together what I can. I doubt anyone would say anything and if they did, well I have a decent excuse. I do want to get back exercising, as I hate my "bat wings" and back bulge.

Just saw that Barbara Bush passed away. She was such a southern lady with a spine of steel.

She was truly a great lady. She surely had some good innings!

Really great sleep last night. I crashed for a solid 7 hours and then was able to roll over and get another 3 hours. It feels good. I am having a cup of hotel room coffee and catching up before I go up to the concierge lounge and see what they have in about 30 minutes.

My first session doesn't start until noon, so I can clean up after breakfast.

Great to hear you had a good flight and some good sleep too.

Yup, everything’s better with Bacon.

Was sad to see Barbara Bush died as well.

Decent sleep last night. Tried a tighter compression garment and of course, it was uncomfortable. I was going to go up and forage for food before taking a nap since I do not have to be ready until 1 pm for the conference. Instead, I am having hotel room coffee with collagen and a GF breakfast bar and going back to sleep as soon as I am done. I am not really hungry and right now I want to sleep more.

I hope you were able to sleep. Glad you had some supplies with you as well. Makes life much easier.

I did get another 90 minutes of sleep, thanks Tomi and NM.

Surgeon's office called today to see how I am doing. I have some fluid, but it does not seem as much as before. I have an appointment next Wednesday afternoon for a follow-up and possible aspiration again.

I took it very easy today and tried to be very careful of my movement. Tonight I ate the finger food in the lounge and went down to a reception that had really great finger foods - like prime rib on a stick. I brought mine back up to my room and am so stuffed from the 6-8 bites I had, that I am not sure I will even eat what I brought upstairs. Fortunately, I have a refrigerator. Between the compression garment and the foam insert, I just do not have much space. I will be checking the scale Monday morning as a random check.

Thinking of you in a compression garment is mind boggling as I suffer with a stupid forearm cast! You’re much braver than I!

It is better than having to go have another drain put in, IMHO.

Sleep was restless at first and then got better. Still trying to take it easy. Fortunately sitting in sessions is not physically tasking - just mentally exhausting after a full day.

Will probably do room service tonight and tomorrow or pick something up and bring it up to my room.

I can't imagine having to sit through sessions when not feeling well. I'm impressed with your stamina. Good for you for resting and retreating as needed.

Well, it is soon to be official (I just have to get back to Houston to sign the paperwork) - I am the Nursing Chair (they took out the interim wording). The Dean asked for me to be moved to an Associate Dean of School of Nursing and Allied Health position as soon as we find a replacement chair. That is HUGE!!!!!
