Howdy, friends!! As you can see, I have decorated my blog with all kinds of sweet goodies...goodies that I will no longer be able to partake in much longer. I have my bariatric pre-op appointment on Thursday and then on Sunday, April 4th, I start the protein drinks four times a day with some water, surgar-free jello, sugar-free popcicles, broth and anything that is non fat, no sugar & clear. I do this for two weeks to prepare my liver and get all the accumulation of crap off of it that I put on over the years. I don't want to be on the table and have them close me back up because my live fell apart!!! Please pray about that for me. :0) I pray for you guys each and every night, too. :)
I'm getting very, very nervous. I hope this is normal at this rate in the game. I haven't slept more than 2 hours in 2 days. Of course, I am now down to only 5 mg of Prednisone and on Sunday I go off the Advil and Celebrex. Boy, by the time the 18th rolls around, I'll be in FINE shape for surgery!!! I just can't believe that it is almost here. It seemed like forever in December when I went to the seminar and than had to complete those tests and see the specialists. Now it's all said and done and everything came out good. Elaine, the lady who helped me, deserves a medal! She kept after the insurance and the doctors and made sure everything was in order. To her I owe all my admiration! Thank you, Elaine at Banner Gateway Medical Center!! You are the best so far!!!
My blog is going to take a slight shift off of fibro and onto my bariatric battle. Oh, boy, will it be a battle!! I have to lose over 150 pounds. In the binder they gave us at the class it said to start a food journal and take pictures of my progress. That way when I hit a plateau, I've got those to look back at. I can and WILL do this right this time!!!! So, since this is my journal, I'll insert the beginning photos taken today by myself. If you are weak at stomach, don't look! I'm not a pretty sight! Let's say I warned you! Here we go....
And, here is my profile.
Alrighty, I'm so tired I can't think straight, much less spell right!! I will be getting my muscle relaxer today so that will definitely help!!!! I think I've slept only two hours in a two day span. Yikes!!
DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE PAIN DROP GIVEAWAY (DETAILS ON THE PREVIOUS POST) - IT ENDS SOON, APRIL 1ST. Please enter on the page that explains the contest, it makes life much easier to tally up entries.
