3 Year WL Surgery Anniversary


So three years ago today, I was probably high as a kite as they poked me with those bloody needles into my stomach...yeah like I needed MORE stomach pain, hello! The surgeon sliced and diced me like I was a food processor and then stapled and glued me up!! Bloody hospitals!! If you didn't read my 3 posts on my surgery, here Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

So it feels weird, and NOT real and the day is now over. And it still doesn't FEEL, true or right or something.

Anyway, it was a nice day though! My sisters both had school so they were MIA all day basically, but My Mom and Dad took me to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, only my second time, so I was SO happy. I got the same dish as last time, because it is SO good! The Crispy Chicken Costoletta is so good, and real mashed potatoes. I shared it with my Mom and we ate 2/3 and we brought the rest home and Sam had it for her dinner. So this meal feeds 1 regular person and 2 people who had WLS! The chicken is so thin and tender and the breading is so light, it just made my tummy smile!
And I got a card from them and it was SUCH a sweet (gotta get teary) card, and it had a Walmart certificate AND a P.S. saying we were picking up Tropic Thunder for me too!! Tropic Thunder would have made me feel loved but I feel SO loved now. My Dad told me again, how proud he was of me. That it took so much courage on my part to go through with the surgery after SEEING Sandy go through it and all the pain and crying. I never really thought about that, I still don't know if I had courage or not. But it feels really good to be told that by your Dad.

We ordered some cheesecake slices to go, I was wanting to be rolled out, I SO overate, that's a thing I have, my eyes are still bigger than my stomach. I ate too much, it was just too good. Then we drove in the 29 degree weather and went to Walmart, and I have my Tropic Thunder, I haven't laughed SO hard at a movie in a long time, I don't care what others say, it ROCKED!! Got home, made my Dad put on the water heater so I could have a HOT shower. Talked to my Mom a bit (hey I am not doing good and we are trying to fix that) and then went downstairs to pack up my "Pay It Forwards" which I finished and my neck is killing me!! Then went online to pester Whit so she'd send her address cuz I am hoping Katie will go to the post office for me tommorrow. And now I am writing this, with my Strawberry Cheesecake next to me (well half, gotta be careful so I don't get sick) and it is DELISH! Sorry I didn't take a pic before skarfing!LOL! And this is me on the day of my 3 Year Anniversary!





P.S. I got my prize for the Halloween Story Contest and Crash and Sewl were right, these should be framed!! Look!!
Thank you Audrey Eclectic they are SO beautiful!!

Glad to hear you had a great day. My parents used to take me to the restaurant of my choice after all of my graduations. A stickler for tradition, I went to the same one all three times.
