mardee posted:
Wow, it is like i have been away for years!!
Either way, I hope all is well with everyone!

The last thing that i posted i believe that i was going to surgery. I had my surgery on November 21st and i am still on the long road to recovery.

On the sad side, i have gained at least 10 pounds since being on bed rest

So, how is everyone?

HI MARDEE! So happy to hear from you . It seems that you're surgery went well which is wonderful news. You have to be strong now and let yourself heal with rest and good nutrition. It's not about the weight right now, it's about making sure your body has what it needs, and no stress allowed!
