I'M BACCCCK !

WOW ! I had my surgery and apparently a gall bladder weighs 10 pounds ! LOL.... no, just kidding, but I am doing good again on my weight losses. I missed my last meeting since I was still in the hospital, but weighed myself at my folks house, and according to that, I am down to 176 ! :D Wheee ! :) But I feel that I was getting back on track before surgery, and went in at about 181ish, so that was already feeling fantastic.

Anyhow ~ I had a few complications during my surgery, I had stones in my bile duct, and apparently I had stones stuck behind my pancreas ! (How odd !) They also did a liver biopsy since my liver levels were always so high and I had high iron, but my liver is FINE ! The doctor said I have a "young, healthy and pliable" liver. THANK GOODNESS ! I was quite worried about that.

I am sorry I haven't been around for a bit, but have been recovering and starting to feel better.

Surgery was on Tuesday, and I was in for a few days, so I still can't drive and am slowly getting my appetite back. My tummy/abdomen is a bit achy, but other than that, I feel GREAT ! I go for a follow up on Wednesday with my surgeon.

By the way, I had a WONDERFUL surgeon ! I later found out he is the TOP SURGEON for the other hospital (that I didn't have the operation at) ! Also, my anesthesiologist was FANTASTIC ! He did such an awesome job ! I didn't even know I was intubated ! Aside from being sick upon waking up, that was the only issue... I feel great and am VERY thankful for the skilled hands who worked on me, and for the wonderful recovery I am having...

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers ! I know I didn't get to give anyone here a heads up, but some of you knew before I was going in at some point in time.... Thank you for caring !

Love you !
Always ~
