Changes and challenges

Monday, August 05, 2013

Hello Sparkpeople friends! Just some reassurance that I am still here. :) I continue to struggle with my large abdominal hernia which has been deemed inoperable by 3 surgeons. This has taken my pain level way UP, and my activity level way DOWN. And I've gained back about 12#. :(

BUT! I'm not giving up. I'm still trying to eat right, and started Plexus Slim today after some friends have had good results. Since I can't really exercise, I've got to get the nutrition piece right!

I've also been busy with work and taking on a second job (
8962/) selling Thirty-One gifts. At least I'm enjoying the time out of the house that Thirty-One is giving me. I was getting pretty depressed following the injury.

Anyway... just wanted to update.

    Oh Dearie, I'm so sorry that you come to this, that you're told that your hernia is inoperable! That can't be! Have you thought about going to the Mayo Clinic in MN?! They take on situations that are beyond hope and turn people around. They're wonderful! I'm sure they would look at you and make you feel better at any rate! I've really thought of you over time and have been wondering how you are. Really! It's so good to hear from you and I'm wishing you the best for the future. I'm so glad that you keep busy!

    I too am sorry to hear that 3 surgeons have told you that your hernia is inoperable, there must be something that can be done.

    Conversely, I am glad to hear that you've found something to occupy your spare time and be able to enjoy yourself doing.

    My dear friend so happy to see your still here on the site. I often think of you and your beautiful little girl.
    I am so sorry that the surgery is to risky for you, I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
    Maybe something will come along to change the outcome of your situation.
    Hugs to the little one and a big hug for you.

    Sorry to hear about the hernia. There has got to be a surgeon somewhere willing to operate. Take care of yourself! emoticon
