My mom had her gastric bypass surgery today. Thank you so much for praying! It went great! They started the surgery a little after 9:00 this morning and by 11:30, the doctor walked into the waiting room with a grin from ear to ear....which immediately had me sigh with relief! Mom had a hiatal hernia which the doctor repaired while he was in there. She was in a good bit of pain, but was really doing great for the most part. The worst part (she said) was how dry her mouth and throat were. They would not allow her to drink even one sip of water. All she could do was sip some water and then spit it out in a cup. That part was misery for her. My dad just kept saying how courageous she was. I have to agree! I hope this is just the beginning of a road to a healthier life for her. She was up walking the halls tonight and I'm so thankful that God guided the hands of the surgeon!
And an update on mine and David's weight loss journey. So far I've lost 13 pounds and my hubby has lost 14! I'm about halfway to my first goal. It's not coming off as fast as in the beginning, but it's still coming off and that's all that matters!
I leave you with a pic of me and my sweet boy!
