Okay, so I'm out of the gate, off and running. (well, walking is more like it!) but I'm out of the gate! It's been 3 weeks since my miracle of miracles--the surgery that saved my life! On October 27, 2008 I had the Sleeve done and my life has not been the same since. The first week was a bit rough. I can handle pain because I've lived most of my life in some degree of pain. But three days post op I developed fever and that scared me. My insurance did not cover my surgury and I knew I was in for a battle if I developed any complications so I called for prayer and placed myself in the loving arms of Jesus and my hubby continued to care for me so beautifully. By Monday, I felt like myself again and things have looked better and better each day since. The first week I lost 20#! I was amazed. On my three week anniversary, I was down 27# . My family and friends are amazed and are so supportive. The great news in all of this is my hubby has lost 15# and my son has lost 6#! My dog even looks slimmer! We are all trying to change some very bad habits. It is amazing! I am so grateful! I'm reminded of a scripture--LIFE AND DEATH ARE BEFORE YOU, CHOOSE LIFE. I'm so glad I chose life! Marie
