Does everyone else wish for spring as much as we do? We are getting so tired of dreary, dark Ohio days. Can't wait for some sunshine!! Lauren is doing great with getting in shape! She is still eating right and exercising every day. She has lost 12 pounds so far and we will weigh again tomorrow. Her nutritionist is very happy with her progress.
Next week will be a busy one. We go to Michigan on Tuesday for a pre surgery consultation with Dr. Sonnenday, Laurens surgeon. I'm sure we will see the nutritionist, Patti, as well. It is also Lauren and Mark's birthday on Wed. March 6th!! Lauren will be 27 and Mark will be 54. Mark always says Wo was his best birthday present ever. I still find it crazy that these two were born on the same day!!
I have found a wonderful website with great recipes thanks to a friend from the cc.org website. It is called skinnytaste. I have made broccoli cheese stuffed chicken and turkey stuffed peppers from this site. The stuffed peppers were so good that I might make them again tonight. I keep thinking about them. Lauren wouldn't eat them, but Gio and Mark loved them too. Miss Picky usually eats a turkey sub from Subway if she doesn't like what we are having.
I know this is a very short post for me, but seriously I have nothing more to say. I will leave you with a few photos and update next week. Thank you for supporting Lauren on this journey. We love you all.
|This was us back in 1987 before Ryan was born. Just call us the little pink family. Haha. It's kind of blurry because it is a pic of a pic.|
|Lauren and Ryan at a seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach. I don't remember the year, but it is probably around 2005. Ryan looks so young!|
|This is an oldie but goodie! Standing is Mark, me, Linda and Wayne. Sitting on the couch is Matt, my Mom, my Dad, and Lauren. Sitting in the front is Ryan, Kristen, and Michael.|
