The Fat Fairy Takes Flight
Hey, Y'all..........Thank you so much for all the well wishes for a safe and successful surgery. I'm home and doing very well. Everything went quite smoothly at the hospital. I'm happy as a clam.
About the only thing that isn't as planned is the amount of free time and energy I thought I would have during my sick leave. Never having had surgery before, I honestly thought that I would come home and do everything as I always had done, just a little slower. I was going to be gardening and working on school stuff. I was going to spend vast amounts of time paper cutting down in Snippyville. I was going to learn how to use my new camera.
Welp, to say I was naive about my energy level post-op would be an understatement. I've been napping like Rip van Winkle. Walking around is really more like creeping around. I've got the old lady shuffle going. Everyday I get stronger and more energetic, but I'm definitely not up to speed at this point.
The snip above is of the Fat Fairy. She's really a symbol of me. I'm hoping that as my pounds shed away I'll start feeling as though I am taking flight just as she is. I'm definitely ready for lift off!
