What Drives Your Choices?

Just in from Lisa... In late winter my husband and I received news that I may never be able to have children. This was in part due to my weight. I talked with my physician and my husband we all decided the best thing for me would be to undergo weight loss surgery. On June 24, 2014 I did just that. I checked in at Penn State Hershey Hospital and had Bariatric Sleeve Surgery. My recovery is going to be long and, has so far been painful. I don’t spend a day where at some point I’m not in pain, not nauseous or just plain tired from the lack of food. However, I couldn’t be happier! Despite all that I am going through I have many things going for me. One, I have a support system in place that will not fail me. They will not allow me to fail! Two, I have a Lord and Savior that has been guiding my path since birth. He helped me to make this choice and to start this journey. And Three, I can see my future children. This one makes me smile, and feel warm from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. They are why I started this; they are the reason for this choice. I want to make sure that I give them the greatest start in life that I can. In order to do that I need to be at my best, and I wasn’t. I don’t know what will happen in the future, I don’t know what I will look like. But I do know that I will feel wonderful! I will be healthy! I will be a mom!
