    Thank-you everyone for your supportive posts and msgs since I had my seizure on Tuesday. Yep it was shitty and unexpected. Definitely not something I want at this time of year or anytime really, but it is what it is. Your words and caring thoughts brought me to tears I was so moved so thank-you xo

    I'm home! I came home from having my Plastic Reconstructive Surgery "Following Massive Weight Loss" at Hollywood Hospital, Perth, yesterday. Everything went smoothly, staff were great, and 'cos of my memory problems the memories of the first couple of days had well and truly passed. I had been in six days. I came home feeling as though I had been away on holiday! Lovely to be home and to just potter around in my own time. I am totally self care, walked to and from the shops yesterday, and hung out a load of washing. All good! .

    Had my bilateral brachioplastys, belt lipectomy and abdominoplasty performed on Friday afternoon. All going really well. Am well enough to be bored, but not capable of going home an looking after myself yet. Had the arm drains removed yesterday, still got 2 abdo and one back. Also Fentanyl PCA and thankfully a catheter. PCA and catheter out tomorrow.

    I'm back from Bali. For a first timer, I reckon I did alright! Loved the people and the food! Went everywhere and did everything. Even had a cuddle with an orangutan, too cute! I found the food light and healthy which went great with my band. Exercise was swimming and some walking. I found the roads quite primitive and difficult to walk on but hey, absolutely nothing to complain about, it was gorgeous and warm too! Oh and shopping, umm had to buy more bags to carry the shopping home ha! Nice to home but what a wonderful place. x
