Reached some goals…

I‘ve been trying to lose some weight since I moved to Florida in April and I finally hit my first goal. I started at a whopping 277 and set a target on 230, which I reached today!  47 pounds shed! The trick for me was to exercise regularly. I began tracking activity with Runkeeper, first …

    Early Morning Run!

    Got up early and drove 30 minutes north to Blanchard Park for the Orlando Runners Club 5K. This was a spur of the moment idea when I ran across a blurb for the run online.  I haven’t done a full 5K for several years but felt I was in shape enough to do it in …

              Captive in my own home

              Although my recovery is coming along fine, my mobility is limited by abdominal tenderness. I’ve been on the couch or in bed for days on end and it is annoying to say the least. The other night brought a beautilul sunset with bright long shadows that enticed me from the couch to grab this shot …

                Hooked up again

                I had my final surgery on Thursday to reverse my ileostomy and I’m being released from the hospital in a few hours. Woo-hoo! All systems seem to be working fine and I’m digesting scrambled eggs & pancakes as I write this. I still have a month or so of healing of the abdominal hole but …

                    Mid-June update

                    As I mentioned, tomorrow I go in for my 2nd surgery.  I’m looking forward to it and getting my intestines back to normal.  The worst part is having to stay in the hospital bed for 7 days. We are in the middle of our first hay cutting this year, don’t know if we will get …
