It's amazing how a liquid diet can take me to such a dark place so fast. I am one cranky lady. Everything is annoying. Including typing this. :) 13 days til' my revision surgery. I am ready to get this sleeve fixed and move forward with what I intended the FIRST time I got it done. My 35th birthday is coming up next month. Last year I envisioned being so much farther out in this WL journey by now.
Anyway, on a happy note... I just took a mini-vacation to Austin with my family and I was out and about the entire time. Every day, several times a day I was thanking the good Lord for the blessing of this surgery. I swam in a lake, floated in a creek, went on a tour of the capital with my family, walked around a museum, toured UT, went on a little train ride (and fit in the seats)... All without restrictions. :) What a wonderful change it was from our last summer vacation when I was sitting in a wheelchair. Nothing more than a bystander watching everything go by. This time I was a full participant and trust me when I say I spend most of that time in such a wonderful, grateful state. You can truly see the blessings if you have been to the darkest places and I know know that I would not go back and change anything. Every step, every walk with my family, every trip to the store I am grateful.
