Well here I am here again thanks to Rocie ( Dsncig Cajun) She kept sending me little notes and goodies and I appreciate that as it finally got me back here. I know I can do this.

My new hip isn't working out like I had hoped. I ended up in the hospital again becaus of the hiatal hernia. I saw a specialist in Milwaukee and he advised against any more surgery as my stomach is now in my chest and they would have to go around the heart muscle. So of course I went thru depression also. i told the Lord I think i've had my share now.

No more thinking about what I can't do but what I can.

I'm leaving the following information here to remind me of my lifes ups and downs.

Well I have another reason to get this weight off. I was admitted to hospital 2 weeks ago with shortness of breath and wheezing.I never thought I'd have hearth problems on top of my other ailments.

Wow. It's been over a year since I've even logged into Spark and what a year it's been. I had suffered from acid reflux for years and dr. said I had a hiatal hernia so I had surgery in
Aug of 2011. On Dec. 6th I ended up back in hospital for surgery as the staples used to attach esophogus to stomach wall had pulled away and I was bleeding.. Only good thing about that whole episode was i lost weight.

This past Oct. I had my right hip replaced for the 4th time and now I'm pretty much in a wheel chair and of course th weight is coming back on.

By rejoining Spark I'm hoping to keep my motivation up and get out of the wheel chair.
