hi everyone,

still no date set for my operation, it is nearly 5 weeks since I was told that I would be operated on within 6 weeks. Somehow, I can't see this happening at this stage.

Been looking after my 3 oldest grandchildren on Wednesday and again today and I am so very tired LOL. I also look after Brennen, my youngest G/C tomorrow as parents are going to a wedding. I think I have been very spoilt in looking after the kids so often. But it is hard work.

I have bought myself a camera and learning how to use it, so I will be able to start posting more photos.

This is me at the moment, so very tired all the time. Not managing as much exercises as I was doing. This is disappointing but physically at the moment I cannot do it. Still eating quite good, which a positive.

steps are way down, I think I have only had one day in the last 6 weeks of 10,000 steps. Average now is about 5 - 6,000 steps.

All I hope is 2014 will be a better year for me. I am now thinking towards next year as when I have the operation I will not be able to exercise for a while and if I end up on dialysis it wills till be next year before I can start doing anything strenuous.

So the only goals I am setting is to recover from the op and try to keep my 5,000 steps up per day until 2014.

have a great weekend.

    Hi Wendy, the camera is a great idea - you'll be able to use it when you are not as active. Beware, it can become addictive! LOL Look forward to seeing some photos! Take care....

    Hello Wendy.
Really don't know how you cope with 3 children .. I couldn't that's for sure ..
A baby is different .. That's much easier, i guess Brennen slept most of the time ..
Try not go exhaust yourself love .. Exercise is over rated .. Having said that ... Gentle exercise is better for you.
Balanced nutrition is the cause of 80% weight loss if you balance it accordingly.
But I guess you know that .. Sending love to you and yours .. Susie. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You know, most people facing surgery in a week (or a few) aren't spending their time taking care of little kids - you are amazing! And there's a reason we stop having children after a while, because they are a LOT of work and are VERY tiring! So good for you for doing all of that!!!!!

Hope the drs hurry up and get themselves organized!!!

    You are a marvel looking after the 3 Grandies. Yes, it's great, but sure is tiring! I totally agree. Their minds are just 'so' active and they are so full of energy and on the go all the time. My 2 wear me out in a couple of hours, so you do very well, Grandma Wendy. emoticon

All you can do is stay positive and yes, I think your goals are realistic. I am so very pleased you haven't set your goals any harder as you know yourself, it's debilitating when you don't or can't meet them, but really silly setting goals that are unrealistic in the first place. emoticon

Have a great weekend! emoticon

    I'm so glad to 'hear from you'! I've been wondering how you were doing. You do sound tired. Carrying the stress of anticipation and worry can be exhausting.

Doing 5-6,000 steps a day is better than most of us without a major health issue do, so don't feel too bad about cutting back for awhile.

Keep us posted - we all care and want to help you in any way we can.

    It must be frustrating not getting a date yet.
Please don't tire yourself too much and don't
worry about not getting steps in.The grands
must keep you busy so that is exercise. You are
doing really well. Have a great weekend. emoticon
