Well, I guess I should let you all know what has been going on in my life since I have been AWOL from the boards for a while. I am sorry that I haven't been here for a while and I hope that nobody worried to much for me. Roy I didn't just throw off your private message but I needed to be able and sit down and write my feelings. It has been a rough couple of months and with God's help, I made it.
I had a RNY on 7/25 and I am starting to do well. I have lost about 45 pounds since the surgery and 25 pounds before surgery. I am still eating mostly protein shakes, soups and soft foods but doing better every day. I ended up in the hospital in Reno UGI to get me opened up again. But all in all I am getting better and better. I am off all my diabetic meds and most of my blood pressure meds. I haven't taken any Lasix in over two weeks. So medically things are going better.
I was told by my doctor and the NP that I would be making some changes in my life but I didn't think I would be making them this quickly. But so far, I have bought a new car, I am looking for a house and I got rid of my SO. He came home from Iraq for my surgery and he was a total ass, he brought me home from the hospital and left me. I told him when he got ready to leave to go back that I hoped that he got everything out the apartment cause when he came back I wouldn't be here. I have had his stuff and I have been so much better off and I think that I will make it. I don't need a man and so now it is just me and my puppy and a new house and new life.
I plan on coming in more often now and getting back on the forum more. I am sorry that I have been gone but I will be around now. BTW, when are we going to start the Christmas card thing, that was so much fun last year. Sonya
