Day 4 post op and unconditional love

Sign in to follow this  


Well, I am sitting here a full 4 days after becoming an official bandit, and I still can't believe its true. The whole process for me was amazingly fast...from gp consult for referral to op was only between 3 and 4 weeks.

My partner had taken our daughter to his parents farm for a few days for me to have full recovery time (without an 18 month old climbing up constantly lol) and I was starting to feel a bit sorry for myself, maybe it was the loneliness or the recovery process itself??

But today my girl came home... and I was just astounded at the way in which she made me forget all my troubles (the pain, the thought of a 4 week liquid diet etc lol) and for the first time in 4 days I laughed and smiled the way I had before the op.

Now our children love us unconditionally, well I hope they do :) but I just can't wait for the day when I can give my little girl a better life by being the fun playful mum she deserves, and not the "sideline" mum who has no energy and has to miss out on the fun stuff.

I am certainly ready for what I know is going to be an emotional rollercoaster. And I know at the end of it, when I can dance to a whole wiggles dvd without collapsing on the couch, that it will have all been worth it.

Being that fun playful Mum is so much closer now!! I've only been banded 7 months but already I'm able to do soo much more with my kids (5yr and 21 months)!
