1 week out

Aug 15, 2008

So i'm one week and one day out of surgery and feeling pretty good. my surgery went beyr well with no problems - i walked the hell out of barix. they did have to put me onblood pressure meds whihc i had never ever been on in my whole life bec. after teh surgery my bp went up to about 140/90 whihc is really high for me - my bp is usually 80/50. but i was told to stop it when it comen down around 100. last night i thought i was gonna pass out whihc was from my bp bottoming out i think - this am my bp was back to my normal. so i didnt take it today. im feeling good though. tired of these darn protein shakes already - so much sweet stuff. i miss veggies so much. i know it will be here soon. so far so good. have to exercise more thats for sure.

He is off to an awesome start - he is 2 weeks out today and down 24 pounds. We have been walking every night for an hour and also playing the wii - boy do my arms hurt after that - ha ha ha. Well I cant wait to post when I get home on Saturday. Thank you everyone for their support.

My 1st support group meeting

Jul 09, 2008

I went to my first meeting on 7/9/08 at Barix in Langhorne and it was run by Susan (cleo's Mom) and there were many more post-op's there whihc was so helpful. I love my Barix family, everyone is awesome. I will be at the post-op meeting August after my surgery. I can see how much the support helps and plan to continue. 

I also have my PAT's on Monday - im alittle nervous but I'm sure Ill be fine. My hubby is coming with me. and I have met 2 more people that will be there the same day as me. we will also support each other. 

I CANT WAIT for my NEW LIFE TO BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got a date

Jun 26, 2008

Well i havent been updating too much so here it is. The ocnsult went great. Dr. Pupkova said I have to lose 3-5 pounds and have blood work done thats it. So the day I left the consult I went right to the lab and got teh blood work done. I received a call from Barix on 6-19-08 saying I was approved !!!!!!! YIIIIPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then on June 23rd they called to schedule - WOW was that fast. I orignally picked 8-21 but then found out too many co-workers were going to be out so I changed it to 8-7-08 ... My new birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next stop PAT's on 7-14. My husband was approved on 6-16 (my birthday) and he has yet to scedule bec. he has to have a sleep study. its tonight so we shall see. .... I hope all goes well for him so he can move on with me.
