I am a woman in my midlife, according to my family, But in truth I have a mind of a 30 year old. I love to walk, talk and knit and do other crafts. Love to cook and try to make meals I can eat. Have sever allergies, I have a sleep disorder and have fibro. Also I love to real mysteries and also am very clumsy too.
I use to be 365 lbs. Last Feb 2008 I was 168.. I was to so happy and proud of myself. Then I had emergency surgrey on gall bladder. 2 operations lapsone toscopic didnt work, gall bladder so badly infected it attached to the liver. Was in the hospital 9 days.. The gall bladder open when the doctor try to do it lapascopic, the stone was over an inch and half with a lot more stones and gravel. The gall bladder was triple the size. The nurses told me how luck I was to get there in time, little did they know of the doctors not sending me in to the hospital right away.
I had many complications, fever, blood clot, I gain weight and didnt eat in hospital.. went up to 184. I was sick and angry..
watch what I ate and then didnt care when I started to eat.. the weight while being good was rising. I went back to 213. I then found out I had more complications sleep apena , fibro, and others.. with sleep apena is how I fracture the bone in the knee cap. I keep walking into things while getting up in the middle of the night.. The doctors told me I am depressed, had a biospy of my cervix, too much bleeding. THank God that is okay..
I came here to lose weight and Instead, I made a lot of great friends. Losing slowly, thanks to the extra steroids for asthma too.. I am hoping now that the brace is off, have cpap machine to sleep.. I will heal and lose my weight again.. now I hurt the other foot and trying to get better.. Have boot on the left foot now and having lots of problems with the foot and ankle and shin.. Tripped a few times same place, It got my hubby to clean his room.

I have been trying to clean out my Art Craft room for a while,, Was in a bad car accident on 3/18/10.. Was hit on the drivers side and 1ft of the car door went into me.. Thank goodness no broken bones but hurt with black and blues and muscules and more damage,, hurt the whole left side of my body.. So off I had to take medications to help me..Still on and off taking Medication to help me sleep once in a while .(only when I am very bad) both hips hurt shoulder foot, knees both and ribs and was seeing double and hazy for about 6 weeks too,, Was in Phyical Therapy and waiting for my treatment tooo.. can raise the shoulder when I get to a certain point I am in pain and it runs down the side and up to the neck.. Foot is out of the boot and in an air cast.. still on and I keep going ... why 2 knees and hips , the door push me into the center console where the shift was and the door hit the left side.. I was pinned in the car and scared.. but luck to be here.. Weight hasnt changed but right now that is okay I am here ALIVE and with my family and you my friends ..
I have also been falling down a few time and caught myself and other caught me before I fell too.. I went down a few stairs and land on the plank bottom step all cut up and bruised and black and blues all over and fracture my finger in June and working on getting the finger to bend.
This week I will be finishing my physical therapy since the car accident.. Hoping I get back to being me soon..
REMEMBER , DO NOT GIVE UP , KEEP TRYING.

IT'S A YEAR SINCE MY CAR ACCIDENT AND HAVE WALKED AWAY A MORE BRAVER PERSON BUT ALSO A VERY SCARED PERSON.. I KNOW LEARN WHILE DRIVING WATCH A LOT MORE CLOSER AND USE TRAFFIC LIGHTS TO GET IN AND OUT OF PLACES OR BACK ROADS.. STILL DREAMING OF THE ACCIDENT AND KNOW IT WASNT MY FAULT BUT KNOW THAT I HAVE TO MOVE ON .. NOW I AM HELPING MY PARENTS A LOT MORE SINCE MOM GOT SICK IN NOV AND FINDING OUT SHE HAD ONE HEART ATTACK AND WAS IN THE MIST OF TAKING ANOTHER ONE , BEFORE THEY DID AN EMERGENCY STENT TO SAVE HER LIFE ... PARENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME AND STOOD BY HERSIDE ALWAY THRU HER ILLNESS AND STILL DEALING WITH SMALL PROBLEMS THAT ARISE EACH DAY ...

DON'T GIVE UP, KEEP GOING AND KEEP FIGHTING TOWARDS A NEW YOU .

Since I wrote this my mother has been very sick.. she has been in the hospital for 3 months and home.. I am finding out that everyone should keep their blood pressure low and they sugar normal.. or CKD Chronic Kidney Disease will happen and if you go to stage 4 dyalisis is the next phase... Mom learn the hard way and keeps saying why me .... My faith is strong and my will power goes up and down but weight the steady holding ...

I wish everyone knew the fact before but its been since April mom got sick and finally out of the hospital in July the past few weeks is a challenge to make sure she is eating right now,,,, My mother passed away 5/10/12 she dehyrate and they hospital gave her 6 bags of fluids and they let her drink and eat everything she went into CHF and the kidneys shut down only to take mom 16 days later

My health is the same and I am going crazy with grief but keep coming online to my family here hugs and thanks for listening

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Take a heap of child-like wonder that opens up our eyes
    To the unexpected gifts in life...each day a sweet surprise.
    Mix in fond appreciation, for the people whom we know;
    Like festive Christmas candles...each one has a special glow.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Add some giggles and some laughter, and a dash of Christmas food,
    Amazing how a piece of pie can change our attitude
    Stir it all with human kindness and wrap it up in love and peace,
    Decorate with optimism, and our joy will never cease.

    To be in the Christmas spirit, even when it's not December.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~A Few Letters To Santa~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dear Santa
    Mommy says that you only bring presents for the good little boys. That isn't fair.
    Dear Santa,
    How old are you? Is your first name really Santa? Can I be an elf next year?
    Who is your favorite kid? How do you fit all those toys in your sleigh?
    Dear Santa,
    How did you meet Mrs. Clause? Do you go to the bathroom at people's houses?
    Do the elves work all year or what? I also want a picture of you, and your signature,
    Dear Pere Noel,
    Could you come early this year? I've been really super good,
    but I don't know if I can last much longer. Please hurry.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dear Kris Kringle,
    Please give me a tank, a jet fighter, 20 green soldiers, and a bazooka gun.
    I'm planning a surprise attack on my brother. So don't tell anyone.
    Dear Santa,
    How do you pay for everything? How do you pay your elves?
    Are you rich, or do you make stuff magically or what?
    Dear Father Christmas,
    I wish you could leave a puzzle under the tree for me. And a toy for my sister.
    Then she won't want to play with mine and I can have it to myself.
    Dear Santa,
    Please give me a doll this year. I would like her to eat, walk,
    do my homework, and help me clean my room.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dear Santa,
    I would like just one of everything.
    Dear Santa,
    I lost my list of toys, so please just send me the stuff that you forgot from last year.
    Dear Father Christmas,
    What should I leave for your reindeer to eat? Do they like cookies, or carrots?
    My mom won't let me bring hay into the living room.
    Dear Santa,
    I need a new skateboard for Christmas. The one I got now crashes too much.
    Band-aids would be OK too.
