I'll jump right in this morning!
As for all the "new man" questions, yes it is nice to be able to hug John and squeeze him, not just pat his sides! And that’s all I'm telling you! LOL
As for the "I thought I would also lose" Don't even go there! Not one darn pound! I have also put on a few, ok 4 but who is counting! I'm thinking some of it is due to the fact he can eat again so he has stored up the “I wants” and is running from one thing to another. He has found out a few times not all will set well anymore!
He came home from a rough day of work and was upset about a phone call. He decided to eat out some frustration just like the good/bad old days. Well let’s say surgery has cured him of that! He was one sick boy! No more eating on an upset stomach! He also found out that eating "just one more bite" is not going to happen! He has found no one food that he can not tolerate, he is just now finding his boundaries!
Well off to work
