I Am Alive. That is all.

Not much to report here.  My angry gall bladder is finally gone, yay!  I am pretty sore, but it could be worse.  It's just so difficult to sleep, I can't get comfy since I normally sleep on my belly.

I weighted myself yesterday morning and I was happy to finally see 199.5!  So amazing, I really hope this surgery doesn't result in a huge gain.  I went to Dr. Ren's office on Friday and got an unfill, they took out 2 cc's since I only had 6 cc's in there.  I have an appointment next Monday for post-op follow up and they are planning on putting in 1 cc at that time.  I am pretty sensitive to big girl fills so the remaining cc might be split into two .5 fills to avoid any problems.  I am happy with this and very happy they didn't completely unfil me!  Um, fellow NYU peoples - there was a guy - not Gasper - who did my unfill and he was TERRIBLE!  He hurt me so much, I actually felt the entire port move!  I have a big bruise from this, not a fan.  He is a skinny guy with glasses, I don't remember his name.  He had to feel around quite a bit to even find the port, Gasper and Ren usually get right in...

Well, that is about it for now.  I hope everything is going well for everyone.  I am in the process of catching up on blogs.

Also, sending out best wishes and thoughts to http://thinspiration4me.blogspot.com/ for her gall bladder surgery which is scheduled for tomorrow!  Best of luck lady!

So glad to hear that you're doing OK! And that is so awesome about ONEDERLAND!!! Was the evil filler's name Frank? I had him once (and dubbed him "Nurse Roughstuff"). Honestly, I was worried that he was going to hurt my port, and I was sore for a few days. I've refused to let him near me ever since. Nice guy. . just WAY too rough!!!

So sorry about the GB, that SUCKS!!!! I hope your recovery is very quick. Not being able to exercise for a month really threw me off after my GB surgery. I guess it would have helped to at least walk. But the important thing is to heal. Feel better and BIG CONGRATS on the passage to Onederland! It counts. Don't pay attention to the scale for a while, I think I gained 8 lbs in water weight right after my surgery.

FEEL BETTER! xoxoxo

Did I already tell you that I wanted to kiss my surgeon on the lips after I had my gallbladder removed? I am so happy that is OVER with for you. You look beautiful in your "toast" picture, couldn't even tell you weren't feeling well. Get well soon...
