~~~> MY EMMI


before i discuss the title of my blog. i was reading my GG blogs this morning and was reading some comments on Christina's "EWWWWW" entry. she was talking about her quickly populating Bunnies. well Patti had this idea i copied to put here (look Patti, Bambi isn't eating the bunny in the photo)

More thoughts on bunny love.Keep a couple and have them spayed or neutered.Release the rest and let Mother Nature take her course. The strong will survive, the rest become part of the food chain. Bambi and the eagles need to eat too or they will die. That's how Mother Nature intended.

now i know that Patti is umm, what would we say more a "City Girl" , and i love her no matter what, but umm, who wants to tell her that Deer *Bambi, do NOT eat Rabbits!!!! she is correct about the Eagles, and she could have said Hawks, she could of used the name of "Tod" the little character on the Disney Movie Fox and the Hound (Tod is the fox) You know she could have even used the name Beast, from beauty and the beast..... BUT Bambi????? hey i am just saying
Okay enough of that. So I think i am just sitting here and waiting around for my surgery,....... NOPE not this program i get this packet of things to do in the next 2 weeks. ..... lets see, History and Physical, Blood work, Chest Xray, EKG....... and then 3 papers that talk about a website, and 3 separate codes that i must watch before surgery. they even go as far as saying if you don't have a computer, go to local library, or go to area in hospital that have computers for individual use. It is an interactive computer program that explains everything i'll be going through in detail and is very easy to understand. I have pre surgical, which goes over the basics, i have anesthesia, which talks about what happens and how many ways and type of anesthesia there are. and finally there is a computer program that talks about the lap band procedure from start to finish, talks about complications in detail before, during and after surgery. it is interactive, so i can stop at any time jot down a question or an issue i have, this is sent directly to my surgeon and it is flagged so she can go over it with me before surgery. i sent it to my GG friends......... and if you are reading this and what to know exactly what i am going to do let me know and i will give you the site, my code and my birth date. i would have posted it here.......... but since it is an interactive site i didn't want some Psycho person (i mean more psycho than Patti, Kellie, Christina and Kim) send my doctor crazy messages that look like they were from me...
Yeah the closer i get the more excited I am.......and the more scared too. i mean i can assure you that i know that this isn't "almost a surgery" this is surgery.......and i WILL be in a lot of pain, and prob for the first couple days.....i'll be so miserable i'll want to sew EVERYONE'S eyes shut, not just Bill's this time!! and my muscles are sore now from the cough i have... so can you imagine after they cut into the muscle, blow my abd up with air, and reposition my organs a hundred times before they finish up and put them back in place..... yeah i think i'll hurt.......... but this is my journey and i am so excited........maybe someone will learn from me........ if this could change 1 persons life.....then it would be worth it, that is why i decided to be open about this........ already my very obese brother D*** , when i started he laughed at the idea..... watching what i've been doing the past year..... he now paying attention and asking me tons of questions.
Okay and lastly... i did get a pretty nasty cold that hit me hard.... But i must say i am being smart. i had 1 more week at kiski before they are off for a month so i had 2 days left this week......i called and told them i would not be in......... i am seeing so many sick boys with various illnesses. knowing my resistance is down, i knew i'd be susceptible to secondary infections, also i have a second job as a babysitter to a little boy who is always sick......i cancelled that too........ so now i am going to lay low, drink tons of fluids rest and nap when i can, exercise in spurts, take in extra protein, keep on my vitamins........pray and meditate..... there are changes coming soon. oh and i plan on making homemade chicken broth, i refuse to drink canned broth, or put a chicken flavored "salt" cube in hot water......tooooooo much sodium for me. I'll freeze individual portions and pull them out to use for the first week.... i will make sure i have my Popsicles, my sugar free jello, and sugar free juices to dilute with my water....... i've been on my chewable vitamins for the past month, figured why wait to start, now i am used to them.......
well i think i will close this very long post.....
Love and blessings to all
PS Jay i hope you are feeling better... and it would be nice if someone else would take their turn for you.... it has hit you back to back ..

I'm so glad you're going into the lap band surgery with your eyes open and your recovery expectations set reasonably. I've had laparoscopic surgery and the recovery time was remarkably fast as far as being pumped full of gas goes. I'm sure that this is much more so am wishing you well and will put you in my mass intentions list in the weeks to come.

I'm more than ready for someone else to take a turn in the sick-o-tron. Spring is in the air and I'd really rather not take more time off or do yet another round of anti-biotics. But then I can say the same of you. Take care!

Hey, I also thought you could walk "on" snow. I'm a desert dweller, what do I know about wild life in PA. They are still wild aren't they?
~wonders off to pout.....

Kim said...

Yes, lovey, deer are still wild. You'll know that if you ever startle one in the woods...especially a buck....and they proceed to snort at you and stamp their feet. But they are vegetarians.

Now don't pout. You could not have known that. I just hope Cliff doesn't see this......no tellin' what sort of fun he could derive from this!

Jay said...

Patt dear, you CAN walk on snow if the snow is packed. Otherwise not so much.

Kim...chust remember that even though prices keep goin' up deer nuts are still under a buck! Oop, I think the short bus is picking me up nah.
