Hello Everyone, Just a few Things.

Hi Everyone :)

Just wanted you all to know that I am doing FANTASTIC since my surgery.

It has been 6 weeks this Thursday and I am feeling great.

All of my acid reflux symptoms have gone away and I have more energy and feel better than I have in a decade.

I am also eating very healthy and feeling more motivated since, and I have lost 12 pounds already :).

I just got cleared from my dr today to start experimenting with a full diet again (even the things that were a big no no for reflux) and the only thing I actually want is a cup of coffee!!! I don't care about pizza or chocolate or anything like that right now. And it is entirely possible to live without it 6 plus weeks, and be happy.

Right now I am taking pure pleasure from eating yummy fruits and everything and enjoying every last bite slowly and learning to appreciate even being able to eat LOL. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it is true.

I am enjoying having no more ear pain, no gasping to breathe all day, no coughing up a lung every day, my voice is coming back nicely and actually feeling like I can make the most of my days.

I guess no one really had a clue how badly sick I was, not even me, until one day with a wonderful surgery it was like a miracle and all that sickness and pain left me and now I have a chance to live again in a way I haven't in so long. All because of something like Acid Reflux that millions of people suffer from. I am going to have to be careful to eat well and exercise and stay as healthy as I can so that the surgery in time doesn't fail and I would end up getting back to sickness...the surgeon did his part and now I have to do my part.

Anyway, I am making cards but I need a little break from the maintenance of this blog. I do spend many hours a week getting posts ready, which post every day at 7 am LOL. I have some exciting things in store for you all in July...the brand new challenges and all.

But first I am going to take the next week off. So look forward to the next post being made at 7 am Wednesday June 29th!!! And it will be exciting!!!

Don't worry, I share every card or project I make here, so the things I have been making this past week and the one to come will still be posted here in July.

Take Care everyone...I'll be looking at the blogs, just taking a break from working mine.
