Off to a good start

We went for our post-op appointment with the doctor today. DH and I lost 18 pounds each (in the last 2 weeks)!! I only wish we could keep that up, but TOTALLY unrealistic, I know. It's tough learning to eat such small portions and we're being told it won't last. It's completely foreign to only eat once maybe twice a day. I didn't even have lunch today until 2:00 (no breakfast). My head is SCREAMING at me to EAT EAT EAT, but my belly is like "ah not hungry".

In 3-5 weeks, I'm sure I'll be screaming a different story!

So 2010 went out pretty good for me. I had surgery of course, but I also got a great award from work. It's for helping when help was needed. I was just doing my job, but an attorney I work with was very greatful. She said I went over and above my job duties. I got a nice little letter for future resumes AND a pretty kick-ass bonus.

SOO AWESOME! So prayer buddy thanks for all the prayers!

Where are you prayer buddy...

Hopefully I haven't over looked an e-mail or anything, but I haven't heard from my prayer buddy.

I would love to thank whoever's been praying for me.

Poor poor DH

We are recovering well from surgery...me better than my DH. I hardly have any bruising, the soreness is slowly fading and I'm finally learning how and what to eat without causing pain. DH is still very sore and has a BIG OL' BRUISE. He's doing ok though.

I got completely scared last night. I knew his belly was bruised, but when we got home last night (driving home from my parents), he lifted his shirt and I freaked out. This is what I saw...

I was having DH get dressed to take him to the ER, when I remembered that our surgeon had told us to call him if ANYTHING was happening between our neck and our hips. So I called his cell phone on News Year Eve at 10:00pm and HE ANSWERED!!! Can you believe it?!?! I was so suprised. He told me to relax. It was caused by a shot of Heparin and trauma during surgery...all the blood was just rising to the surface. He said it happens, although it's not the usual. He also called in a new pain med perscription within 10 minutes as well. Although we couldn't pick it up until this morning.

So our NYE was spent in bed, DH sleeping and me watching TV. We are wild party animals! HAHAH!
