Caramel Apple Salad

I Love Fall,
I Love Halloween,
I Love Food.

Since I've been stuck at home after operation peek-a-boo I have become a little more domesticated. I am cooking. I forgot how much I loved to cook.

Home Sweet Home


Home from Operation Peek-A-Boo. I'm super nauseated and feel like I just got my guts pulled apart....well I guess I sort-of did :)

From what my Mom can recall Dr. T found and removed 3 sets of adhesions. I will find out more at my post-op and update more then.

Thank You Everyone for all of your support and good vibes :)

see you on the flip side...

ps I would LOOOOOOVEEEEE some coffee right now :)

it's to early to be awake...

For those of you that know me in real know that I'm not a super religious kind-of girl


this morning please say a little prayer, send some good vibes, or even good juju my way and also to the most amazing surgeon and medical team surrounding me!

Whatever it is you believe in at this point help is needed. I pray they are able to give me some answers as to why I have this gut pain and help me find some relief.

Thank You for all of the support I have received so far from the texts and emails, to facebook, and from the blog...even twitter! You gals and guys rock! :)

Undiagnosed abdominal pain after weight loss surgery?!?!

Say what?

How common is this? What are the doctors not telling us? Better yet what doesn't the medical community know about this?

At my last appointment with my surgeon we were discussing what he might possibly find during operation peek-a-boo. He believes he won't find anything (and I firmly believe this also). He did mention to me that sometimes...just sometimes... people do have unexplained abdominal pain after weight loss surgery. I have read so many blogs, listened to so many other post ops who have been told the same thing. No one can give them the answers as to why they are in pain. Some doctors have said it's because they lost weight quickly, that maybe it's psychological, they don't take supplements properly, or maybe they just don't follow the WLS rules we are all given when we are brand new post ops.

Whatever the reason is...I would like an answer for my pain!?!
