A new beginning

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I am starting a new chapter in my life I am in the process if making life changing decisions. I am going to have gastric bypass surgery on August 6th and I am excited and scared at the same time my husband is feeling the same way but he said something the other night that just warmed my heart he said that he is worried because the love of his life is going to have surgery and that it scares him. this is such a big thing for someone to say to me because I never thought that I would be lucky enough to have someone that loves me so much and that I matter so much to him. I know that may sound like of course he feels that way that he loves you he is your husband but it was a long way comming to come to the place that I was able to let someone love me and to believe that someone loves me.

we now back to the RNY surgery that I have scheduled I say my surgon for the first time on Friday my mom went with me to the apptment and he explained things so well and answered all of our questions and was truthful about the surgery and the post op and that he is there for the followup I really did like his attitude and feel very comortable that he is going to be the one doing the surgery.

I am worried about taking time off work with the job that I do I definatly have the PTO time but it is very hard to get away from my work it will pile up and but I have to see that this is something that is very important and that they can do without me for a little bit and that the work will be there when I get back

    Make sure you give yourself time to recover after surgery. I've been surprised at how much it has taken me. Everyone is different and I had a complicated revision and gallbladder removed. I am almost at 5 weeks and I could almost work part time now - not hurting but so tired.
    Good luck on your journey ahead. It sure is an exciting one!

    I am hoping you are using the Rocky Mountain Surgical Associates, their Bariactric program is awesome! There is so much support and it is there for you for the rest of your life. Even if you have had surgery elsewhere, anyone can attend the monthly support group. And Dr. Bette's once a month group therapy is also awesome. She is inspirational and gives it to you straight.

    I am wondering who your surgeon is, I know many of them up in Fort Collins. If you are having it at Poudre Valley Hospital, rest assured it is one of the best places to have surgery. A magnet hospital designation is really hard to attain and they have had it a good long while now and are intent on keeping it, too!

    Will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers. If you ever need to talk, let me know.

    Congratulations are your decision!

    Life is for living fully and unabashedly, with love and passion. You are very blessed to have such a wonderful husband to support you so unconditionally and also showing his vulnerability about the worse case scenarios. It is good to be loved.
