    Thanks, and Congrats, you are a wonderful journey and I know it will be hard and you might feel like giving up, my dear don't, you can do it, we are here for you and if you believe in a higher, talk with him daily.

    You can do it,
  4. Hi Cakemaker! I am doing good! Right with you in trying to get the fluids in. This morning I took my meds with a little yogurt and I think it was too creamy so felt really stuffed. I am still a little sore but havent taken any pain meds since yesterday afternoon. It is quite the science project to get a handle on the meds, protein, walking, and water! No regrets though!
  5. hey brenda! i just saw that we shared our surgery date! how have the last few days been for you? for me it hasnt been so bad, just really struggling to get my fluids down but with every day it seams to get a little easier.i seem to get more pain from sipping too much water than from moving my body around lol
  6. thank you!!
  7. This is day after surgery and I'm doing great. No nausea. I had an esaghagus hernia that they found and removed. Not in much pain at all which I am so grateful for! Thank you for the well wishes!

Well, here it is...six months after a long process to get where I am today. I found out last week my 6 months of paperwork was sent to insurance for approval. I am ready for the change and excited to see what lies ahead of me in the next couple of weeks. I am very active and it has not helped with my weight loss over the last several years. I will be glad to go back to running, something I thoroughly enjoy doing but can't because of the weight. Wish me luck, I'm ready.
