Wow I have not been on here in forever! My life is so busy. I am working still. I am now employed by an Orthpedic Specialist in West Branch. I am sure once things get taken care of there, I will be able to settle in. I am doing good. Have put weight on which is bad, but I have a mind set now and a new outlook in employment so I should be able to start putting myself on a good track again. Millie and I have decided we are taking our eating and getting it under control. She has a trip planned in February and I am going to New York in December and I have a NEW GRANDDAUGHTER coming in January. Other than weight being an issue AGAIN I am actually doing awesome!!!
Take Care!!!! (wave)

I have started working again. I have not worked in 8 years. I am finding with the new stress that I am EATING all the time. I hate it! I am so dissatisfied with the feeling of helplessness!! I don't know what to do. Everyone here snacks all the time. I started bringing healthy things to eat but am finding myself in my old habits again of eating crap food! I just had my breast redone. I had an implant deflate within a month and went to Dr DiNick to have them both replaced and also he corrected the imperfections that my first plastic surgeon did. I just am so sore and tired and who knows what else! :(

Well alot is going on in my life. I have been VERY busy. My grandson will be 9 months in 5 days! WOW how time flies. My youngest is getting married in July 2009 and my grandson is getting married in June 2009 in Florida. I am currently running for Township Supervisor and today is election day so we will see tonight how well I will do.
I have always had problems with my hip and was told to loss weight years ago by one Ortho Surgeon. Well I lost weight but the pain is still there and is progessively getting worse. Well I have been seeing new Ortho Surgeon for about 3 years now. I have several shots, physical therapy and all the stuff to go with it. Well I went to see her a week and a half ago and she has decided that I have to have a total hip replacement. Well I am hoping that all works well and I will be as good as new again. Only time will tell. I am scheduled for surgery on December 3, 2008.
Well take care!!!

Well I have a grandson. He was born 3 weeks early. He is the most precious thing you have ever seen! He has a ton of dark hair. He weighed in at 7lbs and 1oz. He was 18" long. He is currently at 6lbs 5oz because he was not eating but he seems to be getting better at it! I am going back down to see him on Tuesday. My blood levels have been really bad. I am currently taking Vitamin D caplets and Vitamin B shots. I am having surgery on Monday to remove some sort of fistula. Should not be to bad. Dr is going to do it in the office. Thought maybe it was another hernia but it wasn't which is good. Should be a fast recovery. Well I will write later!!!

Wow, I have been so busy that I have not updated in awhile. So much is going on. I am going to be a grandma in March 2008. I already have 3 step-grandchildren. This one will come from my daughter Natalie and her hubby, Shawn. We are all pretty excited. We get to hopefully find out what the sex is tomorrow. Hope baby cooperates. Well I am doing good. Going to physical therapy right now trying to strengthen my hips to prolong hip replacement. Thought weightloss would help but Uncle Arthur just doesnt want to let go. Oh to get old! hahaha I am doing wonderful with my weight. I have another hernia but I will have it checked out by another surgeon, not the one I went to before. Well I will close for now. Just wanted to pop in and say HI!!!

Yesterday was my birthday but it was not a really good one. The kidney stone fairy decided to visit me again. YEP~~ I had a day of pain and "thank god" Vicodine. I really can't complain seeing it has been awhile since my last kidney stone. I stayed home for this one. THANK GOODNESS because lord knows the hosital here is horrible and I did not want to travel all the way to Grayling to see my urologist. But anyways, I finally passed it about 3 so Jim took me out for my birthday dinner. I had a horrible migrane today but after taking 4 tylenol and 2 vicodene I finally went to sleep and woke up headache free. It has been a tough two days. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for me health wise. A friends hubby called tonight and he is taking her in for a possible kidney stone. She is at the point of throwing up so we suggested he take her in before the pain was out of control. Nothing worse than kidney stone pain. I think I would actually give birth to 6 at once than have another kidney stone. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. One of the joys of gastric bypass so I am told by Dr Sterling. Oh well, I still love the way I look in the mirror and the look in my hubbys eyes, so kidney stones or not, it was all worth it!!! Take care!!!

We have been very busy lately. My eldest daughter just moved into a new house. It is beautiful and we went down to help them move into it. She is in the country and we feel alot better than her being in the city. I was lifting alot and am paying for it now! Jim's youngest grandson is graduating Sunday so we have his graduation and open house. We have been doing alot to the house. It seems I am so busy all the time. But that is good. Oh yeah, I also just got back from Tennessee seeing my new nephew. Wow, that is strange to type nephew. Cody Scott is the first boy born. My brother has two girls and now a boy and I have two girls so my dad finally got his first grandson. He is truly a cutie pie. So kissable and loveable. I had a WONDERFUl visit with my nieces. Mariah stayed with us at the hotel and we had a grand time. Well I will be out 4 years on Sunday from WLS. I cannot believe it has been so long. I feel good and am doing good. Well Take care and I will write again!!!

I am still hurting from my hernia and adhesion removal surgery but I am sure it is because I do more than I really should, but OH WELL! On a brighter notw, I am the proud aunt again, but this time we finally have a BOY. Yep I am sure he is really going to be spoiled. Cody Scott was born on 04/24/07. He weighed in at 7lbs, 9oz and 21.5" long. His daddy says he has long fingers and long toes and a good set of lungs. I hope to get pictures soon seeing he lives in Tennessee and I don't get to go there much. I will probably see him in September. Well I am closing for now!! tata :-)

Well I am 3 days out from hernia surgery and I feel and look like hell! I thought this would be a walk in the park! WRONG!!!! First of all I was told I would have 4 small stitches on the outside to hold the mess. Well lets count! I HAVE 7 stitch areas to hold the mess and 2 HUGE areas where the put ports that have several stitches, then I have one lower that who knows what that was for, probably some other instrument so I have 10 ~ count them 10 areas on my tummy. Want to talk about a war zone! Well when Dr Collins got in there to do the hernia repair he found a mess as he describes it. I was full of scar adhesions that had to be removed. I feel and look like a FAT cow. I have TONS of gas and can not get rid of it. I am totally sore and cant even lay flat. He says I will really notice alot of relief around the belly button area. Lord I hope so! Well I am going to go now and rest! Back later!!!!
