Surgery Update

Surgery went well. On Tuesday I had a few minor complications but nothing major. I was released on Wednesday.
They weighed me the day after surgery and there was an extra 7lbs from IV fluids, swelling, etc. As of today I have lost that 7lbs plus 10 more lbs gone.
I got out of the house yesterday for a bit, I went up to visit Wayne's memorial bench up close to our former home. That was not easy, but its my way of visiting him, ya know?
I went to the grocery to pick up a couple small things just to be able to get out and do a litlle walking and to the drugstore to buy a new scale. My old one died and I just had to know if I had made any progress yet,,,
All in all, everything is going along smoothly for now.
Still fighting with the VA to get things settled so money is still nill, but my dad and kids are my saviors for now.
Always, Liz

Surgery Date

Ok all, I know I was going to get back to this sooner than now. I still have a bit of trouble concentrating and Wayne was my inspiration when it came to cooking.

I am living with my son and his family now. Jordan and Lily's daddy Trevor, (Toad).

Still waiting for the slow as heck VA to pay my widows pension after almost 4 months.

I am luckier than most, I have family willing to take me in after losing my home to foreclosure because the government is so slow. But what about other veterans widows, that have no one. Its really a shame the way the government treats our war hero's and their families.

Alright, enough of that or I could go on for hours.

My surgery is this coming Monday August 24th. I have posted a recent pic as my new before picture, well, unless the kids get snap happy with the camera that is. I have lost 44 pounds since I began this journey into weight loss surgery. I started at 315, as of last week, I am at 271.

Also a pic of Miss Lily Bell and I. I have a new one of Aaron and I coming soon.

On Monday at 9am est please keep me in thoughts and prayers as I am gonna need all I can get.

I will let you all know how things are going afterward.
