post op and feeling a little better

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

Hi everyone. thank you so much for your wonderful comments. The people on spark are unlike any other. they are caring and they are always here for me and everyone. because of this site i was able to lose all the weight last year and i never stopped because the people on here kept me going and there keeping me going now :) so THANK YOU!!!!!

That being said i did not anticipate to start off the new year in the hospital and laid up in bed for what feels like forever now lol. my surgery went well, the doctor shocked my body 2500 times, yes 2500 times not a typo. he wanted to make sure the 2 pea sized stones lodged in my kidney are broken up so i can pass them. so far i have been strainging my urine and its like im peeing sand (sorry) my back is swollen and bruised and the skin is broken. the right side of my upper abdomen is also bruised and swollen. i feel like someone beat me up really bad, hehe i guess the doc kinda did. today was the first day i was able to get out of bed. i have been doing pretty good so far. i have done 3 loads of laundry and cleaned up the house a little, im watching the kids and i ate some breakfast. im going to try and walk on the treadmil in a little while. so my logs are going to look a lot different for awhile until i get fully back up to spead. my weights down, but i feel untoned from being laid up in bed. ok thats it for now. talk to you all later :)

    You are an inspiration to me. I am struggling everyday to get the scale further and further from 180. It was amazing to see a SP person on the front of WW. I love that mag! I wish I would have taken this website a lot more serious sooner bc my wedding is 2 months away and I am nowhere near my goal. Any tips so that maybe I can loose 20 lbs by the big day? Get better soon!

    Brook, your life story is a beautiful and touching one. You have come a long long way and you have succeeded. Take it easy and let your healing tell you the pace you should be going... don't overdo it.
