I am really sorry for neglecting this blog and all my friends here. It's been a tough few months.

The good news is I've been in Minnesota since Sunday and so far so good.Piper is the best baby. She never cries. Always greets me with a big toothless smile.

My son upon meeting me at the airport didn't recognize me. "Mom you don't look like you, you are so tiny. I've been called a lot of things in my life but tiny was never one of them. As to date I have lost 55 pounds. My son is meeting with his gastric-by-pass team Dec. 1, 2008. Seeing me doing so well has encouraged h
im. I told him the surgery will save his life. I am so glad I can be here to help him.

Awww Piper is calling me and that is why I am here...

I wonder how Bruce is living it up without me?

Cute little Piper - so tiny! And wow, 55 lbs? That is amazing. You are feeling good I hope... that is a big change to your body.

Hope your packed your long underwear away out there in the cold! Have missed hearing from you. Stay well - love and hugs.

Nothing makes life more interesting than having a new person to travel with. Especally when its a brand new person that you can have a part in teaching.
One thing about West is that it is warm in the winter.
The weight loss is good for the heart and self image but it does make it harder to stay warm.
Glad your feeling better and posting again.
