Just can't help it :D

Some of you know I had lap band surgery in 2008, which is why the massive weight loss, I havent had a problem with it until today where I could nto get ANYTHING down through it, I couldnt even drink water without it coming back up and trust me when you have this problem it means that there is something wrong and surgery might be needed. I had to call my surgeon and then go to the emergency room. The ER doc was pretty brutal and had no idea what he was doing but while he was pushing on my stomach he must have dislodged something that was blocking the band because the water I had drunk at the hospital went down and I could feel it and was very releaved. I now have about 20 needle stick holes in my belly and some harsh bruising but hey whatever, I can drink and eat again Biggrin

Coming home from the hospital I needed to keep walking around and drinking water so what else could I do but take photos.

These were all in my back yard surrounding the car park of the apartment.

Oh these two were from the botanical gardens the other day

What an ordeal you had to go thru!!! At least you didn't have to go thru surgery, that sounds scary.

As always flowers are beautiful. Are you shooting with a macro lens?

Its the Tamron 18-270mm 1:3.5-6.3 macro http://www.tamron.com/news/35mm/18270vc.asp

I am really enjoying the extra 20mm that is has over the one that got broken

I still want the canon 100mm 2.8 though. Biggrin
