Post Op Day 34-Surg #3

I've been officially released from Cleveland Clinic.  My practitioner's exact words were "Go live your life" !  What an amazing feeling!! I am oh so blessed that things have gone in my favor and that I am seeing positive outcomes from all these surgeries!  I am excited to get back to work, back to the gym and most importantly, back to ME!  Life won't be consumed with this disease anymore or with the next surgery/recovery period.  God is good and has answered many of my prayers! *feelin extremely lucky right now* :)

Post Op Day 27-Surg #3

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving...I'm so thankful to have my Momma in TN this year to celebrate this wonderful holiday with me.  I'm also thankful to finally have my health back...things might not be perfect just ate, but a ton of progress has been made! And for that, I am truly grateful :)

Grateful for the little things...

Yesterday I got some fantastic goodies in the mail!! A beautiful Thanksgiving table runner as I have oh so much to be thankful for this year! Thank you Greg and Vicki Pfiz! I also received a funny magnet and amazing card from my travel buddies!! I love you all-your sweet notes to made me cry. XO! Oh and well, I bought the Broncos sign, because really, what else does a girl need?! Her team and her dog!! :) 
I gave away this 'bag full o goodies' to The Pouch Place where I had always gotten my ostomy supplies. They are expensive products and I can only hope they lighten someone's 'load' especially with the holidays right around the corner. And trust me when I say, I was MORE than happy to donate these items...seeing as I don't need them anymo! Yay! 

We saw Little Big Town, Brett Eldridge and Brothers Osborn

Mom and I at the concert!! 

My first beer!! Nov 14th. Tasted good altho was a little rough for me later on in the night!

Post Op Day 20-Surg #3

Well although I'm incredibly grateful for a lot of things in my life; this week, I was thankful for an amazingly supportive, patient, caring mother and PAINKILLERS!  Those were the two things that got me through an incredibly rough couple of days! I'm also thankful that I am going to see my GI doctor in the AM and will hopefully get some answers as to where this crazy pelvic pain is coming from...let's pray its only a UTI and that my antibiotics will do their job!

Post Op Day 14-Surg #3

It's been two short weeks since my last surgery! Wow, it sure has flown by.  This week has been fairly low key, just the way I like it!  Grateful to be feeling as well as I am and that I'm all in one piece :)
