KRISSYLEEP's SparkPeople Blog KRISSYLEEP's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Update Well I am out of the hospital and have some news....Nothing is what I thought it was and I'm not sure if that is a good or a bad thing. I have spent this entire time thinking that when you lose weight things were supposed to get easier and your body healthier...when does that start?? I went in Wednesday night to the ER because I had uncontrollable pain in my leg right where the crease is. On the pain scale I was a 10. My PCP thought I had bulging discs which was causing the pain and so he sen... Fri, 23 Aug 2013 17:14:32 EST hospital Just a quick update. I'm back in the hospital because my pain was at a 10 and uncontrollable. I'm also extremely extremely dehydrated and doc thinks kidney stone still so ill be going in in an hour for a ct. I also started having weird and severe abdominal pains last night that we couldn't sxplain so they are going to check my stomach and make sure it has not torn. Leg pain is unexplainable because I have all nerve sensation and no muscle control. Thank you for your prayers and please keep th... Thu, 22 Aug 2013 10:45:57 EST crying Today is a bad day. On Wednesday I went for a 2 mile walk and by the time I got home I couldnt move my legs. It has increasingly got worse over the weekend and as of today I can't sit and can barely walk..the only time I have any relief is when I'm laying down. Went to the doctor and he said I have bulging discs in my back so he put me on steroids. I'm just so discouraged and in so much pain all I can do is sit here and cry like a pathetic child......I start school tomorrow and all I can thin... Mon, 19 Aug 2013 16:48:40 EST Let's try this again Well I had surgery on Monday, had to stay that night, came home Tuesday, and have been on the go every since. I know that it was a minor surgery but I have to admit that I am completely exhausted. Honestly I don't know why I am up blogging when I should be in bed sleeping but I haven't been on in a while and wanted to say how I was doing. Other than being incredibly tired and a little sore I'm doing pretty good. I can eat and drink again without feeling like I'm dying and I am on baby thick f... Fri, 16 Aug 2013 21:59:55 EST Just a quickie Had my sono today and as crazy as this may sound I am pleased with the results. I have sludge and need to go in for surgery on Monday. I'm happy because now I know what is behind my pain and nausea, i can get it takem care of and still make my hair appt on Wed. and my CPR class on Thurs. lol. But that's what's going on...I'm doing this from my phone so, short and sweet...quick question...can i take multiple pills at once? <BR> Fri, 9 Aug 2013 23:49:45 EST Going through the hurdles I went to the doctor yesterday regarding the episode I had the other day and he thinks its my I go in tomorrow morning for a sono to confirm or deny it. If it shows nothing I'll need to do a hydroscan to test the function of my gallbladder and if there is any issues with either test I will go and have it removed. I am pretty much hoping that this is the case and I can just get it done and over with and soon because I start school stuff on the 15th and can't afford to miss the... Thu, 8 Aug 2013 09:52:23 EST A new experience Well it has been a few days since I last posted and I have done great up until today. I have been walking 2 to 3 miles every day and feeling absolutely awesome. Today I felt pretty good until I came home to eat a snack. I made myself a high protein pudding and was about half way through it when I started having extreme stomach pains that went up into my chest and into my back. I was double over in pain and couldn't find a comfortable way to sit or move and could only groan and cry. This excru... Mon, 5 Aug 2013 22:03:21 EST I can see it!! Today was another great day. We woke up this morning, went and registered my kiddo for school, and then went to town to run a few errands and pay some bills. When we came home we watched the movie Rise of the Guardians and the new G.I. Joe movies...of which I enjoyed both. I woke Elijah up from his nap (of which he usually never takes) around 5 so we could go for another walk to the arboretum to feed the turtles, fish, and so I could walk. Man there are some massive turtles in that pond!! Mr ... Thu, 1 Aug 2013 22:38:27 EST A better day Today was a good day. My son and I slept in until 9:30 and for my son that is pretty amazing...then I spent the day getting caught up on laundry and doing the little bit of dishes that was in the sink. Basically I spent the day just relaxing and enjoying my air conditioning. This evening when I had nothing left to do and started feeling depressed I decided Elijah, Marley and I should go back to the arboretum to feed the fish and turtles and so I could walk out some feelings. It was great. Thi... Wed, 31 Jul 2013 21:11:07 EST Saying Goodbye Today I said goodbye to a friend for the last and final time. I have had an on and off friendship with a guy that has been an extremely toxic friendship to me and today I had to say goodbye for good. I decided that I can no longer be a door mat and I deserve better. I have been allowing myself to be treated poorly by this man for far too long because I didn't believe I deserved any better and today I feel differently. Today I feel that I deserve to be treated like a queen and that I need a ma... Tue, 30 Jul 2013 22:30:32 EST Jammin Today was a long day. Slept in this morning with my son until after 10 which in my houshold is pretty amazing. Usually my son or my dog wakes me up by at least 7 or 730...but hey I wasn't complaining, it was great sleeping in. I decided that it was in my best interest to go to the ER for my kidney stones so I could get fluids pumped in me in hopes to help flush them out and spent most of my day there. I got home around 430, ate some high protein pudding for dinner, and then played Mario Party... Mon, 29 Jul 2013 01:02:48 EST Keeping my head up Today has not been a good day. I thank God every day for the opportunity that he has given me with this surgery and a new chance at life and I feel like all I'm doing is complaining. However, it sure does help to get my emotions out, and you all have no idea how much I appreciate your comments and I thank you for your support. Today I had family come in from out of town and I overdid it. I have been feeling some pain in my groin area and it has be burning when I urinate and I thought that may... Sat, 27 Jul 2013 23:42:00 EST I had it!! Well I had my surgery and it was a success!! On July 19, Friday at 7:30 am I checked in for my gastric bypass and went in around 9:30. I was discharched on the following Sunday morning. Honestly I think the procedure and everything went pretty good considering the severity of the surgery. I wasn't expecting to be up and moving around as fast as I was but by Saturday I was up and walking around the halls of the hospital with my Mom. Believe it or not I actually really enjoyed the time I had th... Fri, 26 Jul 2013 20:40:39 EST It's almost here!!! In my eyes I have always been the "fat girl". Never skinny enough, never pretty enough, never good enough, and it affected me as a person throughout my entire life. As a child and teenager I was extremely shy, awkward, and very aware of my extra weight. As a young adult I became aware that of the special attention I got with all the extra curves from the opposite sex, but I was still extremely self conscious of my body and didn't feel comfortable in my own skin. Then I had my son and my body ... Sun, 14 Jul 2013 19:19:26 EST
