It doesn't feel like the end of December. It is the end of 2011 already! I feel like I lost a lot of time from the surgery. I just started back at work today, and I am trying to catch up on everything that was missed. I feel strange writing 12/27 as the date on everything.
My hands feel funny just from typing so much already. I haven't used an actual computer in a while now! I hope the day goes by pretty fast. I just feel like I am out of the loop every time I answer the phone!
My belly button incision still isn't healing correctly. If I bend over too much or lean a certain way too much it really stings. I have been trying to take it easy so I don't over do it!

I went to the ER yesterday morning at 530am because my upper tummy was in so much pain. I had a catscan and ultrasound done and they found a gallstone stuck in the neck of my gallbladder. They saw other stones in there too, so they said even if they unstuck the one stone, I would have had another stone attack later on
So I had my gallbladder removed yesterday afternoon. I wasn't mentally prepared, so I kept crying before the surgery. Everything went well except for an IV complication. I have 4 wounds on my belly now. I didn't get to eat at all yesterday, and it is really hard to eat today. I can't have fatty foods, greasy foods, oils, raw veggies, or dairy. I feel full after one or two bites. My tummy is grumbly on the inside too so that hurts more too grrrr.
My fiance was joking with me saying the gallbladder out will help with my weight loss haha. I told him about how I just wrote a happiness blog. I think I jinxed myself because of that. Oh well, the Doctor told me I have had gallbladder problems for a while now by what he saw. I am glad it is out, but I am in so much pain. It hurts to move, laugh, pee, etc. I am not used to laying on my back so much either. I just want to be healed up again so everything will be easier. I can barely even do anything on my own. I am happy everything went well, but I am not ready for Christmas! I still didn't even get my Christmas cards done yet.

At certain times, I randomly get so happy I feel like I am going to explode. I will laugh, squeal, cry, hold my breath, etc.. it just feels like it isn't enough sometimes. I get so full of emotion and I wonder if one day I may actually explode in some crazy way.
I got on the scale and lost more weight and got soooo happy. I was just so proud of myself for a couple minutes. I just kept grinning and was so glad I am sticking with my weight loss this time! I feel so much better in the mornings. When I walk with the pup, half of the time I feel like jumping or skipping around because I have more energy.
I haven't been this happy in a long time, and I hope I continue to stay happy. I still am not happy all the time, but it has been a lot better. I Am trying to do more things for ME without being too selfish. I still feel guilty, and do things for other people but I am trying my best to keep myself happy too.
I am glad it is almost Christmas! I wasn't excited for a while, but it the holiday cheer finally hit me yesterday!
