First Night Home

I am so happy to be home. There is nothing better than lying in bed, typing this blog, watching "Criminal Minds" and knowing that any second Gary is going to come home from grocery shopping for our new and interesting culinary adventure in low fiber, low residue, low fat cooking. (We are going to be posting any successful recipes.)

Couple of notes about the ride home: the NJ Turnpike is NOT the smoothest ride with a healing 1.5 inch incision in your gut. Also, it's a good thing to take anti-nausea meds BEFORE you get in the car.

I'm going to be working on the blog over the next few days - even my old tune in often.


  1. Dear Marlena, I am so glad you are home and resting. I truly know how you are feeling because I have been in the same situation as you. I began reading your blog last night and I was once again inspired by your story and all the other stories that I have read. I was inspired to tell my story last month and I began a blog. If you get a chance I hope you will read my blog.

  2. Hi Sunshine! I saw your blog - it's awesome! I love the picture on your home page; fantastic idea :) I look forward to reading your story during my recovery.

  3. Dear Marlena,
    Your blog is amazing.... I'm a fan! I am so happy your surgery was a success AND you're on the road to recovery. You are a strong person! Keep up the good work. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Thanks so much Denise! Your support means a lot :)
