Yay!!! Sorry I didn’t weigh in earlier on this convo as I just found it a minute ago! Gotta tell you, it was the best suspense story I’ve read in quite awhile! So proud of your strength and perseverance! And kudos to your daughter (she seems to have a bit of her moms strength). So glad the surgery went well and I pray for a peaceful recovery.

I do not know you, and the chances are slim that I ever will. But if we meet, I will give you the biggest hug imaginable. I hope you are doing fine and everything works out well. Wishing you all the luck and wisdom in the world
Greetings from the other side of the planet :)

You are the proof the Irish are never vanquished, many have tried, none have succeeded. From another Celtic Maiden , albeit several generations removed. I am very very proud to know you, even through this limited media we use. Like my Dutch Bari- Pal Sapphires I too will hug you if ever we meet, the difference? I'll dance an Irish Jig with you as well.😛🍀😛🍀

Wow what a story! 😭🤐 😘 I had to read it all the way to the end. What us women have to go though still this time and age. My mom was the same way, strong and determined and that was back in the 70's when Divorce was a bad word. Wish you well and you have come to the right place to let off stream, and get support. God Bless.

What a story you have. You are a strong and amazing lady. I'm sorry your situation is what it is, but I love your statement of all the good things that came from marrying him. Your daughters and business.

I hope your recovery is swift. I'm glad surgery went well.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
