Neurosurgeon Appt

On wednesday I went and saw the neurosurgeon, he recommends Glycerol injections for my trigeminal neuralgia (OUCH)it's an inpatient procedure and it has to do with a needle being incerted into your Ganglion joint at the top of your jaw and then they incert the medication that lasts anywhere from 1-4 years, then after that it would be the surgery they drill into your skull, with a long recovery and I think I can wait on that one!!! I like my skull in one piece thank you! So now I meet with the new surgeon on friday (talk about BAM!)to schedule this procedure(UGH)So I'm hopeing to get it all done before I start my new job!!! Yes I got a job as a Medical Instructor at Everest College(YIPEEE.) So that is what is going on in my life I pray all is well with you my bloggies buddies!!! here is my new pic 3 months post op and 1 month post op

Where has the time GONE????

Well again it has been quite some time since I posted, this WLS thing really occupies a lot of your time as far as cooking, counting protein and just keeping up. I feel Good about the weight loss, I feel like crap about the trigeminal neuralgia I have been putting up with(UGGGHH)My birthday was yesterday and my DH took me and the kids out to Daphnes Greek restaurant, it was good I had 4 grilled shrimp that filled me for hours.....I don't think I have every been that satisfied for that long, it was weird. But then again this journey is weird. I never thought I'd weigh 54lbs less then I did back in May??? Needless to say I am learning every step of the way...Hoe to....Cook, shop, Buy groceries, shop and believe it or not there is a lot of emotional garbage that goes along with WLS. We did talk about this in our pre surgery class but I didn't realize the enormity of it then. Good thing I have a therapist!!!(LOL)I seem to have short term memory issues not sure why and not sure if this is a common issue with WLS? I 'll Have to ask my Dr. If I remember??? (LMAO) I have been reading this summer I think I have read at least 5 books and I just love reading, mostly Inspirational and self help books, and Books that inspire us to get closer to our Heavenly Father...I read at least 2 hrs a night. So that is what we have been up to and how the weight loss is going. Now we are just getting the kids ready to head back to school, I think I just might miss them :) Time does fly by when we are busy being together and having fun.
