Well hello, beautiful people! Boy, do I have some AWESOME news to share with you guys. This is something that very few people know, however, with his permission I am FINALLY allowed to make this public knowledge.
My husband, Keenan, will be having the gastric sleeve surgery along with me. This is such exciting news. The decision I made to have weight loss surgery is most definitely going to change my life, however, I’m the most excited about having a partner by my side through each of the steps that I have to go through. Not only will I not be alone in this adventure, but I’ll have my sidekick who FIRST HAND understands because he’ll be in the exact same boat as me!
We have both done the first 2 steps of the process and are currently waiting to see what’s next. I can’t wait to ride rollercoasters with him and go back to watching Ranger’s games all the time. Perhaps we can go hiking in Hawaii together or actually enjoy traveling to new places because we can fit in the airplane seats! I have high hopes that this will drastically change the future of our marriage. You guys, when I tell you that I’m beyond excited – I don’t think you all can possibly understand how much I truly mean this. Having this weight loss surgery is going to give me my life back. It’s going to be a whole new world for the both of us.
Not only will my husband and I be able to go on more adventures, but I’m hoping to make a lot more memories with other family and friends as well. I miss walking around the park and feeding the ducks on hot summer days. I miss playing “airplane” with my niece and nephews. I miss strapping on my rollerblades and getting lost in nature for just a little while. I miss being able to play fetch with all the puppies and chasing them around the yard. I miss going shopping with my girlfriends in all the small town boutiques that only carry S, M, & L. Gosh, there is so much that I miss.
I really want to write a post that explains what the surgery will involve and what is to be expected after the surgery day, I just haven’t had a lot of extra time as of late. Perhaps this week I can make some extra time to spit that one out for y’all. For now, I’m just going to leave you guys with just a few benefits of having this surgery that Keenan and I will be having very soon. It’s all just so so so exciting!
Tomorrow is sneaking up fast and I just realized I have no clean pants. FML y’all.
