weight loss update

Matt has now lost 51 pounds. I keep trying to take pictures of him but they are not coming out like I want. You can really see it in his face. We are trying this week to get back to the gym so it will be even faster. I can't wait for everyone to see him at Theresa's birthday party.

surgery update

Matt is doing very well. He came home from the hospital on Friday night. My mom was totally awesome to keep the kids until this morning so Matt could get the  extra much needed rest. He is doing lots of walking which is super important to get all the gas out of him. He goes on Tuesday afternoon to get his drain out.

He will be able to drive after that and most of his pain should be gone. He gets to have liquid only right now and strained cream soups. Not very exciting but if it does the job how can he complain. He also has to have at least 40 gms of protein each day. He has protein shakes to drink and he is also drinking Isopure which has several flavors so he gets a variety.

He will lose most of his weight in the next 6 months. He will lose even if he doesn't try. I say definitely try and then you learn to eat the proper way and lose your weight and be healthier. I will take pictures soon and post them.

As many of you know Matt has been trying to get all the tests and such done so he can have gastric bypass surgery. He has finally achieved that and will be having surgery tomorrow. Hopefully all goes well and will be back to work soon. He will be in the hospital until Friday evening. I will try to update more than normal so you can see his weight loss.

Daddy told her to look sad & pathetic

Well Theresa has been giving us some hassles. We were at Matt's parents on Sunday Sept 21, Theresa was playing in the backyard. She tripped and fell on the grass. She cried for a while and complained that it hurt. She went to bed and we didn't think much about it. The next morning we asked her if she was ok and she said yes. She went to her school were they work on her gross motor skills. They had her do a bear crawl and she started crying because it hurt. I figured give it another day and see what happens.
I took her to Tutor Time on Tuesday morning and she fell on her wrist as we were walking into the classroom. She cried for about 10 minutes then told me it was ok to go to work. I called and made her a doctor appt because I was concerned why she was falling all of sudden. Well the doctor wanted a x-ray and comes to find out that she has a buckle facture on her wrist. She had an appt with the orthopedic the next morning to get a cast. Meantime that she fell on her wrist again at home on Tuesday. I thought maybe ear infection but it was all ok.

Theresa now has a purple cast and she thinks it is the greastest thing in the world. On thursday Theresa decided to fall again in the rosebushes this time. She scratched up the insde of her leg pretty good.
We have now gone almost a week with out a fall so I think she was just at an akward growing cycle.
Some good news Matt & I joined the YMCA and we are going to work out at least 3-4 times a week. Matt is supposed to be getting gastric bypass surgery so we figured might as well start the work out now.

I know I haven't posted for a while but since it is 3:00 and I can't sleep I might as well blog. It seems I never get the time to take a couple minutes for me to catch up on what everyone is doing. I used to be able to check everyone's blog while at work on my break or lunch but all that kind of stuff has been blocked. I can't even look at Yahoo anymore. It is frustrating since I could easily check everything now I have to wait until I come home at night. After dinner, baths and bed for the kids, I am beat and forget to check.

Travis celebrated his 6th Birthday at Pump It Up in December. He invited his whole Kindegarten class and then of course family. We had a pretty good turn out and Travis got a Pirates cake. His auntie Jen has an obession with Pirates and it is starting to rub off on Travis.

The kids of course got way to much stuff for Christmas but it is so much cheaper when they are this age. I am dreading the teenage years. One gift for $200 instead of 10.
