Day 3

Today is the 3rd since my surgery and I thought I was feeling pretty good until I tried to sit up and found I was not ready for that step yet!  It was a beautiful day, the temps were in the low 80’s and I was stuck in bed!  Go figure!  I have waited all winter long for these days and now that they are here I’m stuck in bed!

Surgery went well

I just wanted to post a quick update.  My surgery went well and I’m looking at a recovery period of 6-8 weeks.  Right now I’m mostly sleeping.

where have I been?

Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s been almost 2 months since my last post!  I can imagine your all wondering where I have been or what I’ve been doing?  Well there has been very little down time and lots of personal, family and health issues going on in my life.  It’s been cold and what a very cold and nasty winter it has been.  Ole man winter has hung on till the very end and finally it seems Spring has finally Sprung!

I am still living in house and there doesn’t seem that there will be any changes in that department for sometime.  I have to say that I have been enjoying spending time with family that I missed while on the road, but my heart also longs to be back on the road again but at this time my health and family is top priority. 

So let’s see if I can give you a bit of a run down, after I posted my last blog post.  My son and family moved in and was here around a month in a half and my days was spent driving the kids back and forth from school, in between that I was doing physical therapy 2 times a week and dealing with more deaths and illness in the family.  Then my sister’s grandkids moved in temporally due to a illness of their mother.  So I was still dealing with kids back and forth to school in a different town and lots of ball practices and older activities for the 8th grader.   Not only have I been dealing with these issues but also my own illness.  I will be having surgery Thursday and recovery time could be up to 3-6 months.  Of course I’m praying for God to heal me much faster.  I have also been struggling with losing weight!  It’s been a hard winter and this has been one ruff battle with the weight struggle.  For health issues I need to shed 50 more lbs and at times I’m ready to throw in the towel and have gastric bypass surgery.  The doctors keep telling me I’ve done good to lose 20 lbs in such a severe winter and not being able to exercise due to health issues and the extreme temps.  So for now I will continue to fight the battle of the bulge and other health issues.

Life seems to be a roller coaster ride for me that I just can not get off of .. I want to wish you all a Happy Easter tomorrow and may God bless each and everyone of you.  May we celebrate the true meaning of Easter and remember the sacrifice that Jesus gave for all of us.
