My over weight brother went to surgery

As you can see, he’s OK about it

My young brother, who is also the closest being in existence to me, did a Gastric By-Pass. Seriously, we’re too close we’re practically married and still going on our honey moon. Don’t be fool though by his humor and looks (cough cough weight), he’s the smartest person I know too… seriously, I should be his pet. He just took his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical engineering (the only one who graduated with honor if I may add), and I could never be more proud.

His weight though was always a problem, and I don’t blame him, the food here is heaven. But it affected his back too much that the only way to lose weight is by going through this procedure.

I can’t resist not messing with him… he’s already on pain killers so…

I was so scared for him that I was too nervous during the procedure, and when the doctor came and told us it went well, I cried. I really love him, the idea of him being on an operating table really scared me. But he’s out, and I think his sense of humor multiplied, I think the pain killer is still in his system. I hope he’ll get well soon, poor guy, only water and juice for his diet, so I’ll give him some time before I go back and start messing with him… After all, I’m his older brother, its in my job description.

  1. My beloved sister went into surgery in June (on my birthday) so I pretty much know how you felt. Sadly, it only extended her life for a few more short years but I hope your brother is doing well.
    Even with the weight, he’s adorable. But yay for getting healthy!
    Good luck!

      • Ha ha… around 20, pretty cool.
        Since you mentioned it, why would ppl over there not rely on the metric system. 1 mile is 1.6 kilos. I’m sure you knew that. But is it only in the US ppl rely on a different scale?
        Just curious, not trying to win an argument 🙂

      • I hope so, yeah 20 is good, and in only 8 days.
        One thing I like about calculating in miles is saying to my self, I’ll run 6.25 miles instead of saying, I’ll run 10 Ks… makes it feel like less effort. Or when I say I lost 5 pounds, instead of 2.25… I guess that system was created by a very brilliant and lazy person… 🙂

    • Thank you so much, it is really kind of you to say so.
      He did lose a lot of weight in a very short time, so I guess he’s on the right track.
      Bless you.
