Christmas 2010

I have had a very blessed holiday this year, as I hope you all have. I am taking advantage of time off of work with the hubby and little ones to celebrate. I will be back soon for an exciting six-month update! Happy Holidays and have a great time off with your loved ones!

Hello again!

First of all let me apologize to the masses (snicker) for my extended absence. I have been as busy as a bee getting ready for the holidays and working. Currently I am still at the hospital and at the health department as well. Things are working out so far and I hope they continue to go smooth.

I am at a point where I am looking forward to the holidays. I was so worried about making ends meet this Christmas and we have managed to squeeze by and get the kids what they asked for. Next year, I hope, will be much better.

This may sound vain, but here goes... I am losing my hair. Not figuratively, literally! I have been down in the dumps with the amount that I have lost and I am taking all of the supplements that my surgeon recommends. I knew about this (we were forewarned in the pre-op classes) but never expected it would be this bad. I am anxiously awaiting the point where it stops falling out and begins to re-grow. Wanna see? I'm warning's NOT pretty!

I guess I'll just have to learn to wear hats....or wigs.

I promise not to be gone so long again, but I am sure you all know just how busy things get this time of year.
Here's hoping your holidays are bright and you all remember the reason for the season!

Quote of the day:  And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more? ~Dr Seuss

5 Month surgiversary

Well, I have made it to the 5 month mark! I have lost almost 80 pounds. Again for your viewing pleasure (or horror) I have included photos taken by my charming 9 year-old son. Front view and side view of course!

Yeah! I will keep you all posted, but I hope to be in Onederland by Christmas-time! Cheer me on!
