Home Sweet Home

So I have finally made it home after alittle over 2 weeks at the hospital.  They could not really find anything wrong with my new sleeve.  So I was making it hard for my surgeon to help me but each day seemed to get better and better.  Now I am home and doing what I am suppose to.  They even think I will be able to return to work next week I know I am ready but as soon as I get back I bet I will wish I was still out LOL.  I love my job and I know everyone there has been praying for me and misses me.  I miss them too.  It was very nice to be in my own bed and not being interupted every hour on the hour to take my vitals give me medicine etc.  I am very happy also with my weight loss I start out at 293.7 and today I am at 257.7 down 36 lbs.  Can't bet that.  I am hoping to post my one month photos later tonight or tomorrow.

In the Hosptial

So I have been in the hospital since February 7, 2o11.  On February 5, 2011 I woke up with pain in my chest and my new stomach I was unable to drink or eat anything.  I thought it was just a rough day and decided to wait and see how I was doing the next day so Sunday, February 6, 2011 I still had pain and was not eating or drinking and went to the E.R they could not find anything wrong after a x-ray and a c.t scan everything was negative which was good news but I was still sad because I was still not feeling well and unable to eat or drink.  So Monday, February 7, 2011 I had an appointment with my surgeon regarding these issues so he felt it was necessary  to admit me so I would not get dehydrated and I have been here ever since.  Still waiting to go home they have done another kind of c.t scan, swallowing test, picc line insertion.  And everything shows that I don’t have any leaks or obstruction in my new stomach again good news but sad because they don’t understand why I am unable to keep liquids and food down.  Anyways 12 days later and I am slowly able to keep some things down their goal now it to get me to a place where I can sub stain at home on my own and not have to be readmitted back in the hospital for the same issues.  I am very home sick and can’t wait to get out of here but even then I will have to recoup before I can get back into the normal things in my life.  I can’t wait to get off all of these IV lines and be able to sleep thought the night without someone coming in to wake you up to take vital signs and poke and proud you to check other  things.  So people have asked if I thought I made a mistake having this surgery and my answer is No I am so happy to have done this.  I feel like this is just a bump in the road to my new life and I really want to stay as positive as possible because that will be what really gets me though this.  Until next time Thanks for all my supporters I have enjoyed the cards, balloons, and the people who have come by to see me as well as the ones that have called me.  It means so much to me to see that I have such great people in my life.  Can’t wait to get back to work to see my work family as well they miss me and I miss them.  Thank you to my Vendors that have taken the time to come and see me as well it means so much to me that even though I don’t get you much business you still care about me on another level.  Love you all.
