Update on Keenan’s LSG

A lot of you guys have been asking about my husband.

He’s doing very well. Tomorrow marks 28 days since he got sleeved. His incisions are all healed now and he’s nailed the routine of supplements and nutrition tracking. Last week he was rather excited to step on the scale and see a number that was under 400! He’s taking the protein intake pretty seriously and so far there’s only been a few moments of discomfort due to eating too fast and not chewing properly.

I asked him earlier this afternoon if he regrets having the surgery. He said no he didn’t regret it and that he’s happy he can still have almost anything he wants but that he just eats a very small amount of it. He’s been in a great mood for the past few weeks and though he would never admit it, he’s been acting much more confident!

I gotta say, I’m super proud of him.

Happy Saturday, you gorgeous human!

Holiday Ramblings

Well hello, you beautiful soul, you! It’s Christmas Eve and I’m finally getting around to writing that blog post I wanted to write about 3 weeks ago. Better late than never, right? 1st order of business is to say to everyone I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. So far so good over here, but I gotta admit that it’s super hard to get into all the festivities since I have no tiny ones to share the magic with.

2nd order of business is to answer the question that I get asked about 11 times a day. “How is your husband doing after his surgery?”
As most of you are aware, Keenan had the laparoscopic sleeve performed on December 11th. Tomorrow will be 2 full weeks with his new sleeve and he is doing very well. I wanted to thank everyone for all the well wishes and good vibes. He’s healing great and he has no complaints about anything other than a runny nose that lets him know when he’s full and a few weird pains that indicate that a muscle is healing. He’s started eating soft and mushy foods as of Friday. It’s still weirding me out to see him eating from a tiny plate, but I’m super proud of how serious he has taken it so far!

3rd order of business – It was lovely spending time with everyone today. I’ve got 2 out of 5 Christmas gatherings completed. I still can’t even believe Christmas day is in 8 minutes! I swear New Years Day was only was only 4 months ago… Where has this year gone? Crazy. I’m going to crawl into bed for the night. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas. If there’s spare time before bed, I’ll continue this then.

SURPRISE!

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.
Good night.
