We are alive and kicking...thank goodness. We are just trying to get through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I am off to work Monday and Tuesday of this week and then I am off until the following Monday. Thank you vacation that must be used before the end of the year or you lose it...I love you.
Bryan had his surgery on December 2nd and he is doing great. The surgeon wanted him to lose as much weight as possible before the surgery to avoid being cut open to perform the surgery. I am so happy to report that he lost 50 pounds before the surgery and they were able to perform the surgery through laproscopic (I am pretty sure that I spelled that incorrectly). I am also elated to inform everyone that in three weeks since his surgery he has lost 33 more pounds making his total 83 pounds total weight loss. He looks great, his clothes are falling off of him and he is generally doing quite well. The best part is that he has not even started exercising yet because he has not been cleared by the doctor...whom he will see on the 31st.
So we are on our way to a new healthy lifestyle for the whole family. It is strange to do the grocery shopping and we are spending more time in the fruits and vegetable sections and we completely skip over the junk food aisles. I will post some pictures in the weeks to come...so that you can see the pictures of his progress.
I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and that everyone has a wonderful and safe new year.
