3 Weeks Post-Op Update & New Hair

Hi Everyone,

This is going to be yet another short post, but wanted to let you know that as of 10:20pm tonight, 3 weeks post-op, I have lost 27.1 pounds!  I'm getting closer to the 180s (I weighed 189 the DAY I delivered Shelby almost 12 years ago!)  I am psyched!!!!

Let's see what else?  Oh, Shelby got the stomach flu and puked in the grocery store! Thank God she made it to the bathroom!  I've been trying for months to arrange a sleepover for Shelby at my sister & brother-in-law's house.  They have two little girls (1 & 3) and the oldest was just dying to see her big cousin Shelby!  Well, every time we made plans, one of them was sick.  This time, on Friday the little one threw up, but we thought it was something she had eaten.  The next morning she was okay, so we kept our plans.  Well we met half way between our houses and did the Shelby swap and that night the oldest was puking and then my sister was getting sick so by 8:30am Sunday I had gotten the call to p…

7 days post-op!

Hi there!

This is going to be a short post.

A more detailed (and animated) version of the past week is on my youtube channel :)
Today is 7 days post op and I weigh 196 pounds!  That is down from my 12/16 weight of 218.7.  22.7 pounds GONE!!!!

Tomorrow is a big day.  I'm going in at 8am and they will remove my drain (man that thing sucks!) and the 16 staples which close the five different incisions on my belly!  If all goes well, I will be allowed to go on a full liquid diet (I've been on a clear liquid diet since surgery!)  I can NOT wait because I am sick sick sick of sugar free jello, popcicles and broth!  Not that I'm hungry.  I'm just sick of tasting that stuff every single day!

Besides that.  Shelby has been such a good helper.  I am going to have to treat her to something special when I'm back to 100%!

Okay, that's it for today.  I'm tired.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic 2010 so far! :)

Love and blessings to you all!!!!
