Thank You! to everyone who has sent me get well wishes and
who are still praying for me. I appreciate it sooo much. I had my surgery
2 weeks ago tomorrow. My incision is healing nicely but I've had some other
complications. I started bleeding badly when I got home and went back
to the hospital that same night. I was very dizzy and tired last week from
the blood loss, but my doc and I are in agreement that we both would like
to avoid a blood transfusion. My last blood draw wasn't great but it was better.
I've been resting a lot, taking iron three times a day, and trying very hard to
not have a pity party. The dizzy spells are less frequent and I have been able
to get out a little. I tried driving today but it was painful and I think I'm going to
wait until after the weekend to try that again.
Most of you know that I have been binge free for over three months now.
I started seeing a female counselor who specializes in eating disorders at
the beginning of October. I'm glad I did because I've had a few close calls with
the food since I've been laid up. I actually look forward to seeing my counselor
each week, and I wish I would have started sooner. She has really helped me
deal with the frustration I've encountered over the past few weeks.
I've had to put some of my Spark's goals on hold, but I have managed to log
in everyday and not break my streak. I even logged in from my phone while
I was in the hospital though I barely remember a whole lot from those two days.
I miss walking and working out but I know I need to wait a little longer and take it slow.
Thanks again for all your encouragement. It has really helped make the past
two weeks a lot more bearable.
