I was released today. I'm tired and sore but mostly okay, all things considered. I don't know how much time I'll be spending online - it's kinda hard to type considering where the keyboard is and where one of my incisions is!

But I just wanted to let you all know what I'm home and according to the nurses and my surgeon (and his five zillion residents, lol) I'm doing really well. I have my first follow up appointment on Wednesday.

I also wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH. You guys are seriously the best. When I got up to my room on Thursday there was one bouquet of flowers waiting, and then on Friday two more bouquets of flowers and balloons arrived! I also got a Vermont Teddy Bear from my aunt and uncle, so I was getting a lot of deliveries there. It was really nice though, and everyone who came into my room from the nurses to housekeeping commented on my beautiful flowers. And then I came home to some interesting emails and snail mail that made me cry a bit... I don't know how to thank you all enough. It really means a lot to me, and believe me, I know how lucky I am to have such incredible friends. Thank you so, so much.

Okay, that's it for now. I think maybe it's time for more protein drink.

It’s fantastic to hear you’re doing so well, sorry I didn’t check you LJ sooner...I turned 18 on Monday so it was a most eventful weekend.

Keep up the fast recovery! Can’t wait to hear more from you! Many hugs and kisses, xoxoxo

Ciao *~Luv Loz, mwa!~*

I looked at the link of duodenal switch info you sent me. That really sounds like a good one to have picked with a lot of nutritional problems resolved with that type. Those before/after pictures and stories are amazing! You'll have to share monthly pics with us so we can see the change! Good luck with it as I'm sure it's not going to be a piece of ah carrot the next few months.
