4/19/15 Health Update- Post-Op
Hi all! Just wanna let you know I am doing great, I been walking a mile every day for the past 5 days, I am down 17 pounds since my surgery on Tuesday the 7th, and 37 pounds total since I started my journey. I was 330 and I am now 293. I lose about 1-2 pounds a day so far. I am still on a mostly liquid diet with a few teaspoons of liquidy mashed potatoes. Gonna try a tsp of lowfat cottage cheese sometime today. The hardest part is definitely drinking 64 oz of fluids every day; most days I get to about 58 oz and I feel like I am drowning lol I gotta keep pushing the fluids and just sip all day long. Aside from that I feel great, my incisions are just about closed and all the gruesome bruises are fading away to nothing. I thank god there were no complications of any sort and that everything went by the book. Also thank all of you who have been so supportive, love you guys!
4/9/15 Back from Surgery
Hi all! I am home from the hospital as of yesterday, I wanna thank all of you who visited me when I was at the hospital. Pete and Penney stayed with me, Penney is still here getting ready for work and I am glad to know I am not alone. I am doing very well, the surgery went without any complications. Day 1 was rough, I had a lot of abdominal pain but day 2 I was able to walk more and shower, and the pain was significantly less. Day 3 is today, and I am making sure I drink drink drink fluids and walk walk walk lol I feel okay, and fart a lot lol Everything is working as it should ^_^ I am excited for my future self, va va voom! ^<^ God bless!4/5/15 Gastric Bypass Update
Just a heads up to everyone, I received a call Friday morning from the Bariatric center and the surgeon reviewed my case. I lost 22 pounds, so he gave me a new surgery date. I am on day 2 of my clear liquid diet and Tuesday morning of this coming week I will be going in for gastric bypass surgery. I will be in Saratoga hospital a minimum of two days. Anyone local is welcome to drop in for a visit, though I have no idea if I will be conscious or cohesive, might not be very talkative either lol Either way, it's finally going to happen and I hope it goes well without any problems. Wish me luck!
12/24/14 OtakuDzNs Etsy shop re-open for business!
I have finally gotten all of my various art gigs and jewelry for sale up on Etsy, ready to go! Don’t let these pretties sit around and collect dust, order some nice handmade jewelry today ^<^ Your patronage would help me greatly with various medical expenses (I need special orthotic arch supports for my flat feet- insurance does not cover these things! Oh and I am going to be having gastric bypass surgery in April, so I’ll be out of work, therefore no income for a month post-op. Plus down the road I may need body contouring surgery to remove loose skin; also not covered by insurance :T So every sale I make is a huge help!) Merry Christmas everyone!
