Things are looking up! [Jun. 28th, 2008|07:31 am]
I the course of one day, I can not do the following!

1. Slowly stand up without help from my recliner and sit back down (It's easier if a person is there to help and it doesn't even have to be a strong person, just someone who can hold steady as I used them for balance.

2. I got the mail. I can only walk for 5-10 minutes so far, but I'm supposed to work up to 30 minutes. The problem is the pain is quite intense. Most doctors do NOT give the LBL first because it hurts so bad that people want come back after.

3. I can take care of my own drains!

4. When I woke up this morning I was capable of asking for my medication while wasn't in tears for the first time ever.

I am the tiniest freaking thing you have ever seen. It hurts too much to show a photo, but the surgeon himself said he was beyond appreciative that I released my photos (headless) for the website and his surgery portfolio, because I'm one of the most dramatic. Not because where I started from was so problematic, but because the "after" factor of the plastics he is very proud of and is one of the most dramatic transformations in his portfolio, and post weight loss body contouring is his specialty Right now I can't see it as I'm wrapped up like a mummy.

Amy was in my dream last night. She was riding a brown horse with a black mane thorough a path in a forsest with her hair flow around behind her and generally having a blast.

I generally feel best mid morning, and worst in the evening. I think I'll be readu for short visits and movie (not to mention small slurpees) as soon as this afternoon or tomorrow. I look like hell, but OH well. Next week I want to try a wild sushi date.On surgery day I only ate a cup of chicken soup.

Until swelling goes down there is no way to know how much I'll weigh but according to my doc it looks around 135lbs so far. Arms and chest shouldn't take off more than a few.

I'd like the watch The Little Mermaid. I have it over her. Even when I'm sick I still miss having kids in my life. Is that silly or what?

Also, I wan t make easy sprkly ornamer s for chrisrms

Whoo hoo, drugged Lanette posts! I'm glad you're starting to feel better. I know it's still a long way from good, but you're able to see progress. I can't wait to see pictures.

can't wait to see pictures, and hope you're up and about soon!! *hugs*

(note: if dresses don't fit, please find appropriate home for them. They've been taunting me in my closet for years and it's just too depressing to keep them around. I'm at least a year away from surgery.)

hahaha this is what I was waiting for, a very "loopy" post from my sister. I'm glad things are getting better for you and am looking forward to seeing you. I'll call when I get off work and see if you're up to it.

I'm not even going to recognize you the next time I'm home! It makes me happy to read your drugged out post. :)

I wish I could come watch movies and bring you lots of slurpee goodness. Man, I love slurpees!


Much love to you, Hot Mama.
