Oh my, stop. I adore her. Thank you!

Two years ago today I went to the Mayo Clinic and had a surgery that would change my life. It’s hard to believe that it has been two years since I had gastric bypass. It seems like just yesterday yet at the same time it seems like a lifetime ago. I have lost 113 pounds and am the healthiest I have ever been. At my latest doctors appointment I was told that I had the best bloodwork they had seen in months! I couldn’t be happier about where I am in my life and I owe it all to this surgery. 😊

Today, for the first time in 8 days, I woke up without a headache! SO YEAHHHHH! Now here’s a list of things that have to get done this weekend:

✳︎ 8 Discussion Postings

✳︎ Lead Group Project

✳︎ Film Videos

✳︎ Edit Videos

✳︎ Upload Videos

✳︎ Clean Room

✳︎ Laundry

I think that’s it for now. I have literally been laying in bed for 7 days and I cannot stand it anymore. I am so behind on things and I desperately need to catch up! Fingers crossed that although it’s already 3:30 pm I can be productive today.

Here’s Koby’s last update to his mission blog. So for those of you who have been keeping up, here is what he has to say. He is very happy and in great spirits. Thanks for all the positive vibes and kind words sent his way. 

Heyyyy-oooo. Day 7 of constant headache but I think that we are headed in the right direction. The pain isn’t as sharp and I’m actually able to be up and around the house today. I did try to take a trip to Sonic however and now I am sitting in the dark with a heating pad on my neck. (This picture was taken earlier). At least I can stand to look at the computer because I have some homework that NEEDS to get done today. So yeah, I’ll be doing that. Just thought I would let y’all know how I’ve been doing since I’ve been MIA for awhile. 
In summary, I’m not 100% but I’m getting there. Thank goodness.

My headache is a bit better but now I’m sitting here at jury duty.

I am amazing. I knocked out my paper, created a survey, did a worksheet for week 5, finished my discussion postings for the week, and started my groups power point for next week. I had this window of like 2 hours where my headache went away so I ran with it. Now it’s back. So I’ll be spending the rest of the evening with my heating pads and bed. Hopefully tomorrow I wake up with no headache because I have to go to jury duty so awesome.

So update:
  • Currently on day 4 of constant headache
  • It’s not as bad as it has been though so yay?
  • I just finished all my discussion postings for the week
  • Now I have to write a paper ew
  • I’ve been doing all this with a headache so go me
  • For reals though I want my bed now
  • But this paper is worth 20% of my grade
  • I’m screwed
  • Help
  • I also have jury duty tomorrow
  • My life is so great
  • Not
Am I? I have no idea. My dad bought me this hat when we were visiting the beach in California and I needed a hat. Haha. 💁

This was supposed to be up yesterday but a day late won’t hurt anyone, right? Here’s a book haul for you guys! Watch this video to see what kinds of books I’ve been buying lately. :) 

Nope! They said I just have to wait it out. So unfortunately I’ll just have to be miserable for a bit.

So yesterday when I left you all I had a headache. Guess what!?!?! I still have a headache. Now it’s complete with bonus neck, shoulder, and back aches. I’ve been taking tylenol religiously and have had a heating pad on my back since I started hurting. Honestly I just feel like I got hit by a bus and I wish it would go away.

I went to an urgent care type place today and they just said that it was a virus and that if it didn’t go away in a week that I should go to my doctor and have bloodwork done. So basically I get to suffer. Also I have jury duty on Tuesday and a huge project due Monday. Things are going splendidly. :(

I’ve had a headache all day long and ugh, someone make it go away.
