My name is Tim Cogdill, I live in Olathe, KS, I'm 41 and weigh 638lbs, down from 800lbs on January 1st. I have a mass (called a pannus) on my lower body that weighs 100-200lbs. I have been bed bound since entering the hospital. We've found a surgeon and the surgery is scheduled for April 20th. Until then I am working to lose weight and working with physical therapy to try stand and eventually walk. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or Www.facebook.com/cogdill
First off thanks to everyone who has shared the fund page www.gofundme.com/800lbs
it'll buy some things that will help for sure, and those that donated thank you too, I feel terrible having to ask for it but I have no choice. This week I've been a bit down but not really depressed. I've had a cough that won't go away, they did an X-ray and said it's viral and I can just take cough medicine and try to cough up what's in my lungs. I've also had 2 more units of blood transfused as my hemoglobin is low which explains part of my feeling so weak. They want me to increase my protein so I'm on shakes now so I can still stay under the calorie count. The main thing is I just feel blah or you might call it nothing. I'm no really down but I also can't get happy, all these medications are messing me up, I need out of here. I'm not being dramatic when I say I'm not so sure I'll ever leave here alive. I'm sorry to end on that note but I don't feel well. Thank you all for the support, love, prayers, and encouragement, you know without you guys I couldn't have made it this far! Have a great week friends!
