Did you ever wake up and just feel fat and ugly? That is kind of where I was earlier today. I was very achy and sore from doing a little too much yesterday, I didn't sleep well, and the pain meds seem to bring me down a little, lol. Not a good w... Read more

2 years, 66 days. That is the amount of time that has passed since I joined SparkPeople. I have managed to spin the Sparkwheel 555 of those days, which is 70% of the time. If I were looking at that number academically, I personally woul... Read more

For the first time in 3 weeks I can actually say I am feeling good! The meds are keeping the pain from the surgery to a minimum, and I have to say that today I feel better than I have in a long time! Woo Hoo!!! It was awesome to be able to eat d... Read more

Home Again!

My surgery went well this morning. I am happily home, very tired and resting. I am also very thankful for pain meds to help keep the pain at a manageable level, and for cold packs to place over the incisions. Thanks to all for your sweet comm... Read more

Just Another Bump in the Road!!

I have been putting off writing this blog, mainly because I don't really like to think about it, lol. To continue this story my life is writing: I did the follow up with the GI doctor after having to go to the ER last weekend. She ordered blo... Read more

I synced my fitbit to my phone about 10 tonight, and realized that my day had been very sedentary, and I hadn't even walked 4000 steps. My goals are a minimum of 5000 steps, and shooting for 10000 daily. Sometimes it's a tad more difficult with ... Read more

As many of my Sparkfriends probably noticed, we got home late Monday evening. It was a long drive, lol. They moved my Mom to a Skilled Nursing Facility on Thursday, and she has adjusted really well to it so far. She is doing really well with the... Read more

Mom is in her 2nd surgery as I am writing, she has at least 2 more to go. She is still in the surgical trauma unit, but thankfully she is out of icu. :) The other thankfully is that these surgeries are repair surgeries, not life saving ones. Any... Read more
