I know it's been an off and on couple of months for me here and I apologize for that. I really love writing these posts because it gives me an outlet for getting out things that I'm happy, sad, excited or stressed about. However, it's been a few weeks because again, I haven't been feeling well.
I had some minor surgery this week. I still had a catheter in my chest that I was using to get high doses of antibiotics a few years ago, but it wasn't working. They never took it out because it would've been an unnecessary risk of infection and they decided if it wasn't bothering me, we wouldn't bother it. Well, it started bothering me about 2 weeks ago and was making me really sick so it had to come out. It's not a huge surgery but enough that I decided to go spend a few days with my mom and step dad and let them take care of me. I NEVER do that. I mean never. I've had a
This is going to be a fairly short and rather boring update but I'll be back either later today or tomorrow with more but I do want to leave you with a quick weight update...
I've been doing pretty well actually lol Since going primarily gluten free (more on that later) I've been making pretty good choices food wise and have lost now a total of 21 pounds since August. It's definitely slow and steady but I'm soooo ok with that lol A loss is a loss and it's 21 pounds that will be gone forever...hopefully lol
Until next time I'll leave you with a couple pics from Niagara Falls! My daughter and I went to visit a college there and took a quick trip to the Falls. I live literally an hour and a half from them and have only been a handful of times in my life! One of those times it was just the kids and I and honestly, it's probably one of the BEST days we've ever had together. We had such fun at a time when we really needed it. I was at my sickest...on dialysis, in and out of the hospital and sick nearly every day. I'd woken up that day and decided we were going to take a trip up there. I gathered our birth certificates and we were off. We went to the Canadian side because there's so much more to do there and we did it all! Anything they wanted to do, we did. I was so exhausted but, I wanted the kids to have one really great memory of a time we were together. I don't mean this to turn into anything morbid but like I said, I was at my sickest and we weren't sure if I was going to make it to the transplant. I wanted my kids to have a great memory of the 3 of us doing something fun together. It was something I will NEVER forget.
We haven't been since and it was just Becca and I this time but, we had lunch and spent about 1/2hr checking out the Falls then turned around and went home. It was a good day-even though it would've been great if Robbie could've been there.
