Aha, worries over, your home and safe.
So now its time to relax, recover and begin to get used to the new life…..
Get comfy, potter, drink plenty but above all relax..
Glad your home, its all going to start happening very quickly, you will see results real soon.
Watch out for the warning signs and just take things slow, the first month is the hardest and then you will begin to find it all fits into place real soon….

We are a family! the Losers and the Losers to be!! Even more than that, we all just except each other for what great people we all are.
After all, would your BURP and FART in front of just anyone :-)) ?????? Keep it up as that will make you much more comfortable (not looking forward to that, especially as I will have a houseful, Oh well they will just have to deal with it won’t they!!)
Well done and take care xxxxxxJanuary 9, 2011 at 12:55 pm #41781
hi mandi, i dont care who is about when i burp and fart at the moment lol it has to come out, i really do feel quite well and i am surprised, i am moving around and resting in between but making sure i keep moving even went to little tescos today to get some bits with hubby… o really am very positive and when he wanted mcdonalds cheese burger (bless him he hasnt eaten properly since thursday lol and he has no weight issues ) the smell acrually made me feel quite ill and i am looking forward to my purreed shepherds pie
love karen xxxxJanuary 10, 2011 at 1:32 am #41791
Well I have been a busy bee today.
Blitzed the downstairs toilet and utility room on my hands and knees cleaning them and sorting cupboards out. Taken my puppy on 3 walks ( or should I say dragged him round, he hasn’t got the message he is the one supposed to make me take him for a walk!!) cooked roast chicken dinner and extra veg which I have puréed down and frozen. Had to borrow some ice cube trays to I have stars and arrows shaped swede and carrot 🙂
My mum is also busy freezing down some soups for me as well so hopefully I will be organised for when I get home. busy week only 4 more sleeps and three evenings and two of those I will be out so hopefully that should keep me out of mischief and occupied.
So glad your doing ok and moving about, I am sure that is helping you but make sure you rest up to and let it all heal and settle as your don’t want it to take any longer to get well. You have your new life to get on with. Well done you are so positive I am sure that is helping to.
Take care and speak soon xxJanuary 10, 2011 at 7:27 am #41794CarerQuieMember
Welcome home!! Welcome,also,to the Losing side. Happy healing. xxJanuary 10, 2011 at 12:59 pm #41786
When it comes to belching and farting, I never needed any help for it before the operation……. I am doing it still. Even though it is three weeks since the operation. I was farting three times more then I was beforehand……. I just blame it on the operation and and anti-acid tablets!!!!January 10, 2011 at 1:57 pm #41782
thank you carer it is great to be on the other side so to speak.
i know what you mean helen, although the smell is a bit much lol
