    Wow, Stacey. I can't believe your date is almost here! You know what you are in for, but it can still be challenging. Kind of like having kids-- you can plan all you want, but the actual thing is so different! It will be great though! Remember to post often and let us know how you are doing, especially if you have any struggles. We are here to support you!!! Peace, Rana

    Monday is your day! Just remember you are on the journey of a lifetime. Try to enjoy every minute. It may sound weird now, but know that you are cared for and prayed for here, and all too soon this will be but a memory and you will be an inspiration to someone else. I am waiting for you on the losers' bench!

June 16, 2008 - Rambling about the last few days

posted 6/16/08 10:28 am
So as I sit here eating at 6" BMT from Subway (I ate a little more than 1/2 of the 6" and I'm stuffed), I'm thinking about the 4 day liquid diet I'm starting tomorrow.  I did it for 2 weeks pre op and of course 2 weeks post op, so I know I can do it for 4 days.  I want to get the carbs and sugar out of my system.  I'll do it until Friday night (dinner plans) and when I start eating again, hope to just stick to proteins, veggies and a little fruit.

I took a mental health day today. I found out that DH's headstone came in. The funeral home was supposed to let me know in advance but they didn't. My MIL actually found out on Sunday when she went to say hello to her parents who are also there.  I went with my SIL. It was a hot, sunny morning. We cried of course, yelled at him and told him we loved him. Spent a few hours shopping, so it was a nice day.

Went to PF Changs on Saturday night for a birthday party. It was the same PF Changs DH and I went to for another birthday party the Saturday night before the heart attack. It was weird. I don't think I was "all there" for the night but that's okay. I went.  The last picture taken of us together was there as well. It's a terrible picture. Too close of my face. His eyes were closed.  It was 6 weeks after my surgery and was one of my first meals out.  I remember eating 4 shrimp and was stuffed. Didn't care about any of the other yummy appetizers. I was with my honey, the surgery was over and I was loving life. How different from this particular night where I had a spare rib, a lettuce wrap and a few bites of different dishes. And um, oh yeah, a "healthy" piece of birthday cake.  I do follow the "no drinking withing 45 minutes" rule, but I was so thirsty from the high salt meal, that I sipped on water.  And then I felt it.  That "feeling" that makes you sit up straighter, hoping it all stays down.  I grabbed the napkin from my lap, ran outside in the back, and well, it wasn't pretty.  That was the 4th time I'd gotten sick since the surgery. I heard DH's voice, the concern of me being sick, and I felt worse. Worse that I ate soooooooooooooo much and felt that I was slipping back into old habits.

Got the Wii fit hooked up and LOVE it. I don't like the fact that it states my real age is 53 (I'm 39) so I have work  to do!

I'm up to 30 minutes on the elliptical and I'm so proud of it. Considering that before the surgery, I couldn't do 2 minutes on it.

Tomorrow is a new day, right?
