In h-e-l-l

Once again... :(  Oh well, I have to keep telling myself why I am doing this...  On another note, I had to go to the hospital the other day because I have such bad pain on my right side.  I already had my gallbladder and appendix out so there is nothing left on that side.  They referred me to my surgeon so he can take a look in there while he is fixing my sleeve.  They think it is lesions on old scar tissue from a past surgery.  Oh joy.  Yep, only cranky posts from here on out...
Pic of the day...
My oldest son advanced a rank in Civil Air Patrol. 
We were able to go up front and "pin" him.

Pre-op Liquid Diet starts tomorrow...

NOT looking forward to that but I have to do what I have to do.  Not feeling nervous YET.  Feeling more excited to finally have this fixed after almost 2 years.  My surgery is on the 12th.  My first sleeve was done on March 21st.  The roller-coaster begins tomorrow!

Very sick (pics + Tips & Trivia by Dee)

and my surgery has been rescheduled to March 12th.  Int he mean time, I am exhausted from all the parties... My youngest son turned 7, my middle daughter turned 4 and my oldest daughter got to have a party with her friends in the back yard for good grades.  I am WORN OUT but grateful I am physically able to do these things for my kids.

Below: My 4 year old's Princess Party... We had over 40 little princess friends. :)  We rented the Carousel and had a private party before the mall opened. :)
