Yes, I am yet among the living. I know many of you had begun to believe I might have perished. Recovery was painful but fine and as I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel, I had a bad patch and ended up in the hospital for an unrelated illness. It was painful and complicated things a bit. I am feeling much better today and am hopeful that I will continue to feel better and better as time goes on.
I have sat down to write many times since the surgery and everything I wanted to say seemed somehow inadequate. Several times I even wrote an entire post and was so disgusted by what I ended up with; I just logged off instead of publishing. Part of it is that I will want to say something and end up saying something completely different. I think during the surgery half of my brain leaked out. :o)
It is rather late and so I am not going to attempt an in depth post tonite. I thought instead I would keep it short and light; giving myself at least half a chance at success.
As an update:
- I started out this Journey at 373 lbs.
- I came home from the hospital weighing 361.
- I weigh 331 today…WaHoooooooo!
- It has been 24 days since my surgery.
- As of yesterday, I can no longer wear my favorite jeans…WaHoooooooo!
For the Prayers and the Love…Love ya all so much…justjil
