Post-op has not been kind to Finola. Being obliged to sleep sitting up for 48 hours meant she didn't sleep well, and it may have been the pain pills making her too queasy to eat. The surgeon has suggested <drum roll please> Gatorade.
It being what would normally be Pennsic time, I am going to try to tempt Mom with her favorite flavor mixed with Sprite, and a foam cup of chicken noodle soup.
Hope this works. Right now she is even refusing coffee.
