John's Journey 7

An update on my favorite recovering WLS patient. He had a great weekend!

He sang and played the guitar at our church's Men's Breakfast this Saturday - which I wasn't sure if he'd be able to do. He said that he was a little short breathed a few times, but overall it he did great. His Dad was the speaker - so I know that they had a good time. In fact, John was told that he will be asked to do this regularly - as the haven't ever had a singer before...

On Sunday he was back to his regular routine with church - despite having a weepy mess of a wife. He played and sang in both services - and managed to slip out during the second service to drink a protein drink. We got to church at 7:50 and didn't make it back home until 1... but no nap for him! There was basketball to watch, you know. (I laugh because I totally crashed out for 4 hours!)

He is back at work today - even if he didn't want to get out of the car when we pulled up to the building... I don't blame him though. It's always sad getting back to work. We'll see how the day goes, he's planning on getting a workout in tonight - but he might be surprised at how tired he'll be after a full day at the office. You never know with him though - he's pretty stubborn.

He's doing really great as you can see...


  1. Good for John! He is doing great!

  2. That's awesome! I'm sure it helps him a lot having someone with him that has been through it all... and even when he's on "regular" foods, you won't be tempting him because you both will be on the same diet.. It'll be a win-win for both of you!
    I'm very happy for both of you.. You'll both be healthier than ever, and the next year will just be amazing in every way! :)
