Stir Crazy!!!!!

Nov 13th, 2012 | By | Category: Sparkle of the Day

I am back home from my surgery and it has truly kicked my butt!!    After the 3 1/2 hour surgery which went really well (thank you Dr. Warshaw) he had found something that I never knew about me but answered many questions.

For all of you that have eaten with me and wonder  how I eat so much food and wonder where it goes….well here’s the deal, I have 3 feet of extra large intestine. So basically the food hangs out there and cooks away!! EWWWWW!!!!  Now I know why I am the only girl on this earth that puts on a pair of spanx and gets the worst stomach pains ever!!!!!  Really????? With 8000 yards of intestine it just smushes it!!!!

I want to say that every single nurse that works at HCMC are the loveliest girls ever!!!  The first three nights at the hospital I had terrible hallucinations from the drugs and these little angels kept me awake each night until 3 in the morning amped up on tea and coffee until the drugs wore off.  Considering my hallucinations were of these darling nurses trying to kill me over and over it was pretty ironic!!!

I have been home now for a week and still can’t drive and all I want to do is throw myself out of our front window!! Argh!! Two more weeks until I can escape!!

Well I am happy to say blogging is back on it’s way!

My breakfast, lunch and dinner the day before!! Yes I made 64 servings of jello!!! I really thought that I was never going to eat again!!!

I think I am going to vomit…Please if you run into me anywhere don’t say Strawberry Jello out loud!!!!

Right before surgery.  Seriously I am 5’9 and I look like I am 4’11 in this giant chair!!!!

I woke up to this on my stomach!! LOL though I can’t laugh to hard because I have a 6 inch incision across my tummy!!!

This is me right after surgery totally drugged out of my mind!! Nice, pretty hair too!

After 27 bags of salt water going in my body I am already to play tennis without a racket!! Full on balloon hands!!

Cuter card from Morgan!!! I dig this picture she was like 3!!!

This is my exciting I can’t get out of bed for 3 weeks look!!!


Okay guys do you notice the big giant wrap on me if my hair is up? Or do you notice it with my hair down?  Okay stop laughing I am a hot mess!!!!!!

Thank you for all of the Sparkles and now let the healing begin!!!


LOVE and SPARKLES to you all!! xoxoxoxoxoxooxoxox
