I need to get it together. I should be going to the gym, but I am sooo tired! I think I am so tired because I haven't been sleeping well at night. I keep waking up. Then the cats know that I am awake, and they won't let me alone and they carry o... Read more
My surgeon is very pleased with my progress. He has released me back to work, normal physical activity and all the rest of that fun stuff. He has also cleared me to move onto the next stage of my diet.
