Its been a while

Thursday, January 24, 2019

It has been a while since I have been on here. i had been really sick for almost two years. I had diverticulitis and it was just getting worse of the day after my 50th birthday they went in to take care of the 3 abscess and they also found a blockage and took care of that. It has taken me a little over a year and a half to get back to a some what normal life. I had a lot of complications and spent the better part of the last 2 years in the hospital. While i was in the hospital I ended up going from 230 pounds to 120 pounds. I couldnt eat because I would just throw it up. I ended having to go to a Rehabilitation center for two months to learn how to walk however I was not progressing there I was just getting worse because I was depressed and wanted to go home to my family. So I talked to my doctor and he said that I should be at home because that is the only way that I was going to get better. So when I left the center I was still not able to walk so when I got home I still had to have home nurses come out three times a week to take care of my wound. Then I had physical therpy three times a week and just being home I was so much happier and I started to progress a lot faster and with in 4 months I was walking much better without any help. I did have to gain some weight because I was unhealthy at 120 lbs but now I have gained just a little to much and I want to go down to 145 lbs I also need to learn how to keep that weight once I achieve it. I love this site because it helps me when I am down on myself because I do not feel like I am doing anything. So happy to be back here. emoticon emoticon
