Yes, I am among this living!! YEA!! I have had some ups and downs...but things are looking better every day!! I have to have a colon resection next week due to my extensive diverticulitis problems...so...hmmm....how much will 12 inches of my colon weigh???? Could i finally get below 200?????? Not funny...I know...but I be lying if i said i hadn't been thinking about it!!! I haven't been able to get a fill in quite some time due to the risk of a foreign body infection with the diverticulitis...so I don't even know how much my band has in it anymore!!!
I will be in the hospital for 5-7 days, and off work for 3 weeks!!!! 3 weeks!!!! a new one for me...don't know if i'll be able to handle it!!!! Hubby is being so wonderful and will be moving his office to the house to help me recoup. I have been working out trying to get as strong as I can pre-op...this surgery is NOT going to knock me down...why??? BECAUSE WE ARE STILL GOING TO HIKE THROUGH ALASKA IN JUNE!!! I CAN do this!!!
Here are a few pics from an 8 mile hike we took a few weeks ago...fun times!!!
