A little Bug love

Yesterday, as I was sitting here reading email, my 6 year old, Bug, came to me, put his arms around me and gave me some love. A few minutes later, he said, “Mom, I’m so glad you had surgery to be skinny. You aren’t so hard to hug anymore.”

It brought a tear to my eye in a couple of ways. First of all, he’s SIX! He realizes that his mom was/is very obese. Second, even if nobody else can see it, he can tell, by his hugs, that I have made progress.

With that, I can say that I will NEVER regret having this surgery. Second to my life being prolonged, my kids are the reason I had a sleeve gastrectomy performed three weeks ago. They are the reason I WANT to live a long(er) life.

And today I made a new goal. Bug will hug me…and his arms will touch. Not just fingertips or hands, but arms.
