Guess what the day brought today? [Jun. 28th, 2008|08:28 pm]
Lanette
I made the top list for 2008 fund raisers for MS Society. My most sincere thanks to those who helped us make this list.

One bit of exciting news. While they can't help her balance, new research means they MIGHT have a change to fix my sister's double vision. You have no idea what a miracle that will be for our family because while many people do great without vision, in her case with the balance issues it makes her very prone to injury. There is no PROMISE, but for the first time in 5 years there is hope.

For my Mom who went the whole night feeling me pills every time the I woke up in agonizing pain and I eternally grateful.

I give this surgery so far an F---- would not buy again. Could be partly because my stomach muscles Had to be restitched together. I must admit that my fear of how badly it would hurt was NOT unfounded, It feels like a barbed wire girdle.

It looks good, so hopefully this is my last post of this pain. In my opinion, If I could pick between 5 back to back lap RNY surgeries verse one of these exended lower body lift. Major freaking OUCH. My point is, even if you save the money and do the research. Anyhow I hope surgery gets better.


My MOM was freakijafa, specially if
So, big thanks to Brandon and Amy, who sweetly came to visit. Also, Craig and my Mom who spoiled me. To Angela H and Jason who come to visit with a beatutiful,sweet and positive attitudel and they brought me tortalini and sauce to help me get in some calories

They swelling hasn't even kind of gone down yes and I'm in my post plastic's goal range, so trying to keep eating. They took off 13lbs of skin from my stomach alone.



I want to say stuff but I get s tired.

You were cut in HALF. You are held together with staples and crazy glue. It's going to hurt a LOT.

But I got through it and so will you. You deal with extreme pain every damned day with this nerve issue. You can get through this, too. It WILL get better. I promise.

The doc also told me that mine was a bit more extensive then he though because msucles in tehfront were too far apart and he to be put closer together. I think in a feew weeks I'll be better, but they had better not be stingly about the pain meds beaucase MAN it hurts.

Mine wasn't. I doubt yours will, either. Remember, that whole "cut in half" thing. Just figure out what you're taking on a daily basis and assume you're going to be taking that much for a week or possibly two, at most, and from that extrapolate when you'll need to ask the doc for a new scrip at one of your follow ups.

My tummy tuck, which was during my tram-flap procedure, was the HARDEST surgery. My advice: give yourself the time to heal.

Here is to those who took care of us (and wiped our asses!!!)

13 lbs! wow...that's good though. That should help your back :) Glad to hear you're feeling a little bit better, sorry to hear the pain is there though. But it makes sense, what they did to you seemed scary!
