1 MONTH POST OP

Well, here we are. One whole month after surgery. I can’t believe how quickly time flies. And how quickly the pounds melted off. I’ve hit that one month stall that most people seem to have. But I’m not really scared of it. I’m not upset. I’m so grateful to have been given this opportunity. 

As I write this, I am sitting on the beach in Surf City, NC. I am watching my family laugh and play in the water. What I wouldn’t give to be out there with them. But my scars are still healing. Both internal and external. A bathing suit seems like the perfect excuse to run and hide. I know I’ll get there soon. Just not today. 

I’ve moved up to soft foods while still using pureed in the mornings. This is where I will tell you that my nutritionist has been, hands down, the best. She is not pushing me into eating things I’m not comfortable with. She is really allowing me to have a say in what I do and don’t eat. It helps. A lot. 

Let’s get to pictures. The ones on the left were taken about a week before surgery. The right ones were taken this morning. Tell me you see just as much difference as I do!

I must say, I feel so bad for the people who go through this process with little to no help and support. I’ve had so much from family and friends. It’s making it so much easier. My 16 year old son was away for a week and told me when he came back that it was like night and day. I was doing so much better after all the complications I had. And then today, my 10 year old tells me that I look completely different than I did when I went into the hospital. I’ve noticed so many changes in my body, it’s nice to have others notice too!

My name is Jessica Wolfe. I am the wife of an incredible man and father. He and I have been together longer than we have been apart. We have two sons, one is 18 and a freshman at Indiana State University majoring in Music Education. Our 13 year old son is in the 7th grade and is being home schooled. My vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery was on June 16, 2016. My total gastrectomy was March 3, 2017. I’ve recently found out I have a fairly large benign tumor in my brain. I also have something going on in my lower spine between my L5 and S1. It seems as though surgery is imminent. Through this blog, I share my life with you and am brutally honest with myself so that when I do look back, I can see what it was that made me make the decisions I did. I also welcome opinions and questions as it challenges my thoughts and helps me grow from where I am. If you want to check me out anywhere else, please do!
