So, I am preparing to go back to work next week. I've decided to clean out my closet and give the Salvation Army the clothes that either were too big to start with or I just don't like anymore. They have a great program that gives women on welfare clothes to go on job interviews. I feel good giving to a great purpose. But I digress.
I tried on some clothes that were way too small before surgery to see how close I am to wearing them. Guess what? They actually fit and fit good. Even the Mario Lemieux jersey I bought over a year ago on EBay. I'm so totally stoked. I'm stronger every day and have been going out during the day for a couple of hours, trying to build up my stamina. Finally, I am getting to the point that I am happy I had the surgery. YEAH!!!

Update time

Wow, I didn't know that I hadn't been on for so long. Time flies. Well I went to the doctor for my month (actually six week) checkup and I am totally thrilled. I have lost 31 pounds. Absolutely amazing. This makes me happy and realize that everything that I've been through. My mind is clear and I haven't felt this good in ages. I'll try to post more often.

Have you ever been just tired, not sore, but bone tired? That's the phase I'm going through now. Within an hour of waking up I am tired. My nutrition and water consumption is up but it feels like I constantly need a nap. I can't wait to go to my checkup next week and ask the doctor to make sure it is normal. Other than that, I feel pretty good. Guess that's why they call it recovery.

Happy anniversary

Wow, it happened so quick. Today was my one-month post op anniversary. I have some slight pains but considering how bad I've been in pain, today I feel pretty good. I am down to one nap a day and am able to talk about 1/2 mile a day. Two weeks ago I barely made it to the mailbox at the end of my driveway. I've said before that this sucks so much, today, it really doesn't.
