Hi Everyone, Yesterday morning I had to go for a follow up at the surgeons and She was very pleased. She was pleased at how I was healing and even gave me the go ahead to start doing things now. She told me that I had been more prone for infections because of the fat around my tummy and that sometimes people will get infections. I had none of that at all. So over the next two weeks I can do a bit of housework, even a bit of gardening and slowly build up my strength. So this was very good news. Lately everyone is telling me how good I look, I got told today that there is no pain on my face any more...... I keep telling everyone that I am no longer in pain and what I notice the most is the fact that I can touch my skin without it hurting. I think I must of had a lot of poisons in my system...anyway I have to see her one more time in the new year and then that will be all. As I waited for the doctor I got on the scale and have lost fifteen pounds since my operation so I will never ever see those 300 numbers ever again. not ever....Right now I am sitting at 289 and I figure that I will check myself in October first to see how much weight I have lost. I am keeping a journal and have found it is making me more aware of what I am eating. The numbers have never been the biggest thing for me, getting healthy, being more energetic, doing my part to stay or get into good physical health because as we age well we will just encounter more. I have to be responsible for my health.....As for my Cataplexy I have cut back on a few medications and are playing with that a bit. The less pills I am on the better that will be for me.
I will never be able to stop them altogether.....but it is sure nice to know that there are possibilities of improvements....that is all one can hope for....So mentally and physically I am in a very good place at the moment.....I want to wish Diana a speedy recovery. I know you were having your knee operation sometime this week. sending you wishes of love....Gail I am hoping all is well with Gracie Blue let me know how she is doing. My friend Vicky whom is fighting cancer right now, she is such a fighter and an inspiration. Please say prayers for Beth whose friends were hurt in the Indiana State Fair Collapse, and if I have forgotten to mention anyone here know you were not missed on purpose. What I have learned the most is we all have our struggles and somehow through knowing one another I think we will all continue to inspire one another. Everything and anything is possible. so may we all continue to
Take care, Cinner
P.s. Spunky Suzi, I have been amazed at how your hand is healing and your determination to keep at things, you are a great role model. Thats all folks, Over and Out.
