July 19, 2011

Okay the time is running short. I have just 1 day before my surgery. I meet with Dr. Baker tomorrow at 3:00 and we will go over the final things. I hope the Mercy Systems were able to get the stuff faxed to him today.

I am wondering how much I am going to lose in this surgery. I am already below my goal weight and have been told to gain weight. So we will see how much more I have to gain. Last time I weighed it was at 170. I have a hard time wrapping my head around that sometimes I mean going from 442 to 170. That is just crazy.

I hope the same problems I had last time don't surface this time but I have faith that Dr. Baker knows what he is doing to prevent it from happening. I am guessing he will immediately put me on home health. But we will see. I will be going out to Mom and Dad's for awhile to make sure the same problems that happened last time don't happen again.

So I am a bit nervous I mean isn't everyone going into surgery but I have confidence in my doctor and I have confidence in God that it will all work out in the end.

July 2 2011

I am in a weird situation I actually have to gain weight. When I weighed on Thursday my weight according to the BMI was right in the normal range. I am no longer overweight, obese, or morbidly obese.

I have been told that I actually need to gain a few pounds. I can't remember a time in my life I have ever had to gain weight. So I have been trying to eat even though I'm not hungry. Today I did get hungry a couple of times so I ate. I grilled fajitas and that was good. Tomorrow I am going to grill steak and onions. Can you tell I just got a grill LOL? I spent my fun money on it. I have been drooling on the smells coming from my neighbor's grill all spring/summer so finally gave in and bought one.

So here's hoping having a grill and having fun things to grill on it will help me gain weight.
