A new life begins!

Thank you all for your prayers yesterday. The surgery went great and I got to come home about 4 hours after it was over. I am extremely sore today. More sore than from any other surgery I have ever had, but I think it will be worth it. It even hurts just to breathe. At least I got me some gooood pain medicine! So if this post sounds crazy I blame it on my pain medicine stupor!

I will have to be on a liquid/soft food diet for at least two weeks now, but that's ok because I don't have any hunger pains for the first time in my life!

So here is where I am starting from. I weighed 215 lbs the day before surgery with high cholesterol, migraines, joint pain, and a never ending hunger.

I will post my progress as I go (not that anyone cares, but I want to keep a jounal for myself). I think this will be good for our whole family. Because I can't eat much at a time everything that I do eat has to have good nutrional value. So hopefully this will help Jason and the kids eat healthy too.

I feel my pain medicine starting to kick in so the words on the computer are starting to run together now. But I just wanted to thank you so much again. God has truly blessed me and my family in so many ways, but especially with good friends. I could actually feel your prayers yesterday. I love you all!

I called you a while ago but I bet you are asleep! I love you girl and every time I want a gummy worm (which is about 10 times a day!) I'm praying for you..:)))

I'm with everyone else, you are beautiful to me and especially to God but knowing you are going to feel better physically and in every other way is what is important!

Love you girlfriend!
