So I have unpacked more boxes and was able to find the wires needed to get my computer going, now I will be able to read all the blogs I am behind on and blog about my journey!
Let me start of by telling you all about a call I got today that really got me upset. I hadn't really told a lot of people about my surgery not because I was ashamed but because I really felt no need to let all my family now. A few weeks ago we made a trip up north to visit family and I did mention it to my sisters, they were all very supportive of me. I didn't tell the cousins just because I didn't want to go all in details about it since we were all enjoying the reunion.
So I get a call today from my cousin Tony and this is more or less how it went:
Tony: Hey Kuz'n you guys coming over this weekend? (Grandparents came to visit from Mex)
Me: no we won't be going I just had surgery and didn't feel like making the 5 hr drive.
Tony:oh yeah I heard you were going to get the band how are you feeling?
Me: I am feeling great I've lost 17 lbs already
Tony: So what happened kuz'n you to lazy to work out that you couldn't do it on your own
That was a real slap in the face! I don't remember exactly what I told him or how, but I do remember saying that I had to do what I knew was best for me & my family and that I know people are going to judge me but that I didn't care as the only people that mattered where my husband and my kids. I do remember telling him that if he can loose the weight on his own by doing excerise that I was proud of him for him to do it. (He's a big guy so he was NO reason why je should judge me!)
After I hanged up I was in tears. How can anyone be so cruel, who is he to think he can judge me!
This is why I really didn't wanna say anything to them up there! They are my family but I know how they are they are always talking about anyone & everyone.
On a better note I went to my post op today & my Doctor says all looks well. I go in 3 weeks for my 1st adjustment. I am feeling great. Didn't get any gas pain, just a lil pain on my port insicion. Oh the day after surgery my throath did hurt a lot. I had a hiatel hernia repaired so they say they had 2 tubes going down my throat. That explains the pain.
On much better news I am down 17.8lbs. :)
