Surgery Wednesday

Well I am getting surgery to remove 6 inches on my small intestine at LDS Hospital on Wednesday. I am a little scared, but I know I am going to be fine and that this will make it so I can eat again. Well eat something other than protein water. They found a dilated loop in my small bowel and have to remove it. I will be there for 3 days recovering. It will be so nice to have this fixed and not be in constant pain 24/7 anymore. Dave has school so won't able to be with me and my mom is in Oklahoma, so I will be hanging out at the Hospital all alone. If any of you get bored and want to come visit me I would absolutely love a visit! They always make me feel so much better!

I don't know what time I go in for surgery yet, but will find out on Tuesday. I am going to get my hair done tomorrow so I don't look like a sick ugly person while I'm there. Dave and I call it hospital hair when my roots have grown out because they only time I don't get my hair done is when I am sick. :) So my sweet hairstylist is going to do my hair tomorrow morning.

I can't believe how exhausted I am all the time and cold. I guess that's what happens when you have no nutrients in your little body. This surgery can't come soon enough. I just want to feel better again. I truly believe that this will be my last surgery and that I will start feeling better after this.

My sister and brother in law are here and I got to spend some time with them last night which was so fun. I'm just relaxing on the couch now and I think I might take a nap.

If you want to come see me in the Hospital I would love you too! It's LDS Hospital on 8th Ave and C Street in Salt Lake City. I will be on the 6th floor west. Any visits would be greatly appreciated. Just give me a call before you come so I know you are coming. LDS Hospital number is: 801-408-1100.

Love you all tons! -Jilly-

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I have had a hard time remembering to be Thankful this season, so I wanted to write a special Thanksgiving Day Blog about all that I am thankful for right now in my life.

I am thankful for my Husband; how he stands by me through everything, how he holds my hand when I'm scared and wipes away my tears when I cry. I'm thankful for the priesthood blessings he is able to give me to help me through each day. I'm thankful for his strength because I could not go through what I am going through without him. I'm thankful for you David and I love you.

I'm thankful for my mom's hugs. I'm thankful for my daddy's kisses. I'm thankful for my sister's listening ear. I'm thankful for my brother Paul's concern. I'm thankful for my brother Brock's laugh. I'm thankful for my amazing sister in law Laurel and how she always puts a smile on my face. I'm thankful for all my beautiful sister in laws. I'm thankful for my brother in law Bric and how giving and kind he is. I'm thankful for my brother in law Jeff and how he takes my 1am phone calls because "I need to talk to a doctor." I'm thankful for my in-laws for giving us so much and helping us survive daily. We would not be able to live without them. I'm thankful for my amazing nieces and nephews and how they bring so much happiness into my life.

This is the part that gets hard for me. I'm thankful for learning patience. In many blessings in the past 2 months I have been blessed that I will be healed, but that I need to have patience. I found out Tuesday that I have to have surgery next Wednesday to be able to eat again. I have to wait 7 days to get the surgery. My patience has been tested and tried and though I have failed miserably, I'm thankful for the blessing of patience that my father in heaven is teaching me through this trial of mine. I'm thankful for learning that I can't do it all on my own and that some times my only option is to get on my knees and plead. I'm thankful for my Heavenly Father and Savior being there for me and leading me and guiding me in which path I need to take, which Doctor I need to see, and what procedure I need to have done. I'm thankful for my faith. My mom raised me to have faith in the spirit and in the Lord, and I'm thankful that I have so much faith in my Father in Heaven.

I'm thankful for Doctor's. I'm thankful for modern medicine. I'm thankful for the IV that is keeping me alive right now. I'm thankful for the health that I do have. I'm thankful that in a week after my surgery I will most likely be done and healed and truly get to start to live life again.

I'm thankful for the Hospital staff that takes such wonderful care of me at LDS hospital when I am there. For the amazing nurses who care so much and come at my every call. I'm truly blessed to have found such an amazing hospital.

And last but not least, I'm thankful for this wonderful, stressful, and trying, life that I get to live each day. It is the greatest and hardest thing I have ever had. I put my husband through a lot, but he has no idea how thankful I am that he gets to be a part of my life. I love living. I love being able to wake up in the morning and know that I have another day to live. The gift of life is the greatest gift we could ever be given. I wouldn't trade one second of my life. I'm lived a lot and gone through a lot and continue to go through a lot, but I am so thankful for every second I have lived because it brought me Dave and that is the person I am most thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day. My husband is the most incredible man and I love him with all my heart. I wouldn't want anyone else, and I couldn't ask for any better. He truly makes my life worth living and I will continue this battle and continue to fight and continue to be thankful for all of it for him. I love you Dave.

More Tests

This weekend has been exhausting. I was able to go get some fluids at the hospital and that gave me a little strength. I called the Doctor this morning and they are going to do an upper GI series, CT scan, check my liver, check my pancreas, and do some blood work.
My Doctor came right out today and said he has no idea what is going on, so we're just going to test until we figure it out. It's a little disappointing to hear that he has no idea what is going on. In fact it makes my heart drop a little. I had a good cry last night and this morning.
I don't know why I am going through this trial right now. I don't know why my body doesn't want to work, and I don't understand why no Doctor knows what is wrong with me, But I do know that they will figure it out. I know I will be healed. I know I will be able to live life again normally. Someone, somewhere is going to figure out why. I have faith that Heavenly Father knows my trials and my heart and is going to heal me. Whatever he feels is right is going to happen. Until that day, I am going to live each day to the fullest.
It doesn't matter that I keep losing weight, it doesn't matter that I can't eat, and it doesn't matter that I can't sleep and hurt all the time. I'm going to go to movies, I'm going to go to football games, I'm going to enjoy the Holidays, I'm going to spend as much time as I can with my husband, I'm going to go on dates, I'm going to go see my sister in Oklahoma, I'm going to spend time with my family, I'm going to decorate my Christmas tree, I'm going to clean my house, cook my husband dinner, go grocery shopping, put my make-up on, wear cute outfits, and I'm going to feel as good as I possibly can while going through this. Hey, I might even go see my Grandma Margaret.
I know my Heavenly Father is there. I know he hears my prayers. I know he understands what I am going through. I know he sees my desire to fight and stay positive everyday. I know he blesses me. I know he is going to make me better.
Thank you to all of you for your love and support why I go through this. Thank you to my amazing Husband Dave, I couldn't do this without you by my side. I couldn't do this without you holding my hand. Thank you to my Mom and Dad for loving me and doing all you do for Dave and me. You make it easier to live. I love your visits and I love your hugs and kisses. Nothing beats a kiss from my Dad!
Please continue to pray for Dave. He needs the support, and strength a lot more than I do right now. Please pray for my Husband.
I love you all so much! Hopefully today will go well and I will get some answers!! Once again, I'm out, but I'll keep you updated!

Nov 19, 2009


Well today is one of the many days I have to go through to try to get well. Last week I lost a total of 17.3 lbs. The doctors weighed me 1 week earlier and were absolutely blown away with what they saw when I was there the following Monday. I still have not been able to eat that much, but I did have a milestone this week. I have not had any solid foods since October 30th (crazy I know) but this week I was able to keep down a few bites of soup. This was amazing to me! I have lived on nothing but gatorade and water for 3 weeks, so to keep a few bites of soup down were incredible! It not only tasted delicious but I felt better then I had in weeks.

Later on in the week I went and saw my Doctor. I still had not been cleaned out like he would have liked. I had taken 2 bottles of miralax and also 3 liters of Go Lightly. My body just doesn't want to seem to get well, so what I am putting in is not coming out. They can't really figure out what is going on. They know my colon is not working and they know it is full, thus the reason I am throwing everything up. They just can't seem to figure out why it is staying that way and why my bowels are refusing to work.

Today at noon I go in for a Colonoscopy/Endoscopy. They want to run a camera through my entire digestive track and see if they see any blockages or obstructions or can find out some conclusion to what is going on. I'm a little frustrated.

My poor husband has been a champ through this whole thing. It's not easy to be a wife of a food addict and have that person not be able to eat. I have not been nice, I have not been positive, and I feel like I cry everyday. It is really draining mentally and emotionally to be sick all the time. It's also hard to go from Doctor to Doctor and have them tell you that nothing is wrong, or they don't know what is wrong.

I know my body. I know I can't eat. I know I throw up anything I try to eat. I know that there is something wrong, so listen to what I am telling you and diagnose it. That is your job as a medical health professional!! I just wish I had my brother in law here to look over all my CT scans and figure out what is going on. I would really like to be a lab rat for the Medical Students up at the University of Utah Med School and have them do tests and tests until they find out what is going on with my body.

If I had one wish for this Christmas season, and I know this is selfish, but it is the only thing I want. I want a Doctor to look at me and tell me what is wrong and FIX IT. I want to be healed. I want to feel like Jilly again. I want to stop crying. I want to stop being in pain. I want to be able to eat again and stop whithering away to nothing.

You know, it's amazing how long the body can live without food. I have gone since October 30, 2009 without anything but liquids. I have gone since November 3, 2009 without any form of calories other than water and gatorade. I don't think it's too much to ask to want to eat Thanksgiving dinner. I don't think it's too much to ask to have a Doctor actually spend sometime with me and figure out why food will not go into my stomach without coming back up through my mouth! I don't think this is too much to ask!!

I'm sorry I'm being so negative I have tried so hard to stay positive and know that everything is going to be okay, but today I don't feel that way. Today I feel like a Lab rat. Today I feel like my world is somewhat falling a part and all I can do is grip to the gatorade bottle in my hand and pray that I can make it last a little longer. God give me the strength I need please. If anything, give him the strength my Husband needs at this time.

D&C Section 121 Verse 7
My son, peace be unto your soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment.

Papa Kirk's 55th Birthday

Yesterday was my Dad's 26th, I mean 55th Birthday. :) He had such a great day and we had so much fun celebrating with him. Even though I didn't get to eat any of it, the whole family went to Brick Oven for dinner. We had lots of pizza, garlic bread, and rootbeer! Micaela, Halle, Jospeh, Paul, Lupita, Katie, Dave, Mom, Dad, and me, were all there.

My Dad had been painting his house all day, so Brick Oven for dinner was a much needed break.

The came out and with his Chocolate Mud Cream (thick as thieves) Pie for his dessert, and we all sang the Brick Oven Birthday song. We passed the cake around and then it was back to Momma Cay and Papa Kirk's to open presents and have cake and ice cream. Dave and I couldn't go back to Springville with everyone, but we sure did have fun at Brick Oven.

I hope you had the best Birthday. Dave and I love you so much. I couldn't ask for a better father. I have never known anyone with such drive and determination as you have. You have such an amazing spirit and are so much fun. You inspire me on a daily basis. We are so thankful for all you do for us. Thank you for making us laugh every time we see you. I'm so grateful that I had you as an example of what a good husband should be, because my sweet Dave is just like you. I couldn't have asked for better guidance then from the example you gave. You worked so hard, so all of us kids could have a great life, and great life we did. I can't think of 1 time I ever went without anything I wanted. You truly made my life what it is today and that is great! I love you so much. The world could not have put a better Dad on this earth, and a girl could never get as lucky as the Roberts kids did to get Kirk Roberts as our father. We love you so much and I hope you had a great Birthday!

Love Always,
Davey and Jilly

My Fat Tummy or Packed Colon

So I think we might have found out what is going with my little body on Monday. The whole thing is amazing how it worked. I didn't sleep Sunday night because I was in so much pain. Finally at 5:30 in the morning I started searching for Gastroenterologists because I needed someone to tell me what was going on inside of me, since no surgeon or ER doc or family prac. doc have figured anything out. I was sick of going to the ER every week and I was sick of having surgery once a month. So randomly I typed in GI doctors within a 25 mile radius of my house. I typed in all the numbers into my phone under "Gastro American Fork" or "Gastro SLC" etc. so when they opened at 9 I could call one of them and hopefully get in that day.

9am finally hit and I started calling doctor's. No one could see me that day, and in fact no one could see me until Wednesday. I hadn't eaten for over a week, I wasn't able to drink anything at this time, and I had just been to the ER the night before and was in so much pain. My stomach hurt so bad under my left ribs and every doctor told me that my CT scan looked perfect. I scheduled an appointment with a random doctor in SLC for Wednesday.

At about 10 I was near tears and feeling so discouraged. I was just messing around with my phone and scrolling through numbers and deleting the ones I didn't need. I came to the S's and I had typed in "Sandy Gastro". I hadn't seen it earlier because I had saved it in a completely different section. I decided to give them a call. The receptionist answered the phone and I explained my emergency and wanted to know if there was anyway that they could get me in that day. She transferred me to the nurse and I explained to her what was going on. She said that she just had a cancellation and Dr. Schmidt had an opening at 1pm and she would get me in if I wanted. I was about in tears and said YES!

I got to the Doctor's office that was maybe 15 minutes from my house at 12:30. I filled out all my paperwork and they literally got me in by 12:45. Dr. J. David Schmidt walked into my room at around 1pm. He asked me why I had come to see him, how I found him, who referred me, etc. I told him the story how I found him on the Internet and wanted a second opinion. He said okay, and started pulling up ALL of my history from the IHC website. He was probably in his 30's and reminded me of my brother-in-law.

He started asking me all of these questions as he pulled up my latest CT scan from the night before. He took about 5 pages worth of notes, and then started writing on the paper that covered the bed because he needed to take more. I asked him if he could show me my CT. He said, "Of course. Let me show you and explain to you what everything is." He then showed me and explained to me in detail every part of a CT scan. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. He then got to my colon and showed me what a healthy colon should look like. He then went back to my picture and showed me mine.

Let me explain what a healthy colon looks like on a CT scan. It is basically clear with little patches of white throughout it. It loops all over your body and is approx. 6 feet long. The patches of white are stool and the clear is the air in your colon. You want a CLEAR looking colon. He then showed me what mine looked like. It was completely white. It had maybe 1 or 2 slivers of clear and then was ALL white. It was packed with white from my rectum to the start of the right side of my body. Here is the amazing part, right where I had told the ER doctor where I hurt, under my ribs on the left side; my colon was swelled and completely white. FULL OF POOP that won't move.

Dr. Schmidt asked me when my last bowel movement was. I told him that it had been over a week. He also had asked me where my pain was before he showed me the CT scan and I had told him. He then showed me EXACTLY why I was in pain. He also explained to me why I am not able to keep anything down. Ready for food and liquid have absolutely no place to go. I swallow and because my large intestine is completely full to the brim, my food goes through my stomach and then comes back up because it can't move any further. It's not coming out of me "down there" so it comes back up the only way it can...through my mouth.

This was absolutely amazing to me. I wanted to cry I was so happy that a Doctor was finally able to tell me what was going on. I was also very frustrated that no other Doctor had been able to tell me when it was so clear to me on the CT scan after he explained it. He was also somewhat worried because this is the exact same thing that my mother had experienced. He said that this was probably genetics.

The great news? He said that this had absolutely NOTHING to do with my gastric bypass. He said that my bypass looked great and whomever did it did a great job. He said my small intestine looked great and healthy. The only thing wrong was my large intestine. (Thanks Mom!)

So here's what we do from here. He put me on Miralax this week. The usual dose is 1 capful a week or a couple times a week for people. What's my dosage? 4 capfuls a day!! You mix it in gatorade and I just have to sip it all day long. This is how they prepare people for a colonoscopy. He is basically trying to clean me out. He said if I don't have a bowel movement by Friday then they are going to have to take more dramatic steps. I have an appt. with him on Friday. He said that by then I should have take at least 20 trips to the bathroom. 20!! I haven't had 20 bowel movements since May! I can't imagine having 20 in less than a week!

So this is what is going on right now. We'll see how this week goes. But at least we found out the problem, I am literally "Full of Shit" as Dave put it. ;) Let's see if we can clean me out! Pray that it will work! I'll keep you all updated! This should be a fun week :P

My New Favorite Thing

I have found make-Up that is amazing, mineral, healthy, and 75% less than the mac and bare esscentuals make-up that I normally buy. Just to put in perspective, my normal foundation from bare esscentuals is $25 for a small little container. The exact same foundation from my new website $5!!! That is amazing to me. In fact my entire purchase of a set of new brushes, mineral foundation, concealer, cover-up, 2 eye shadows, 1 lipstick, 2 lip liners, 1 eye liner, and a mineral blush, cost me the exact same price that it would cost me to purchase 2 Mac eye shadows!

I had heard about this make-up from a friend, but was a skeptic because I had never used it. This month I was reading in my Glamour magazine and they brought up the make-up line and how amazing it is. They basically gave me some tips that I needed desperately bad. They said to do a few things, so I'm going to share them with you:

1. Go through your make-up and throw away everything you have not used in over 6 months
2. If you don't already have one, get a good set of tweezers
3. If you don't already have one, get a good make-up holding case
4. Throw away your bronzing powder. It will always make you look fake
5. Start using mineral make-up. Not only will it blend better, but it will improve your skin
6. Invest in a good concealer, brown eyeliner, and a nude lip gloss
7. Invest in a good sharpener
8. Have a great set of brushes along with a brush cleaner

So, those are a few of their suggestions. What did i decide to do? I did exactly what they said. I went into my make-up case and threw away all my make-up I don't use. I had lipstick and eye shadow from High School that I still have never used!! I cried when I threw away my bronzer, but Dave will be thrilled because he hates it when I wear it. He thinks I look orange, so apparently Glamour is right. I bought a brush cleaner and invested in a "good" set of brushes. I have had the same brushes since High School, so I completely justified getting them, and I couldn't beat the price. I got rid of my non-mineral make-up. And lastly, I invested in my first ever mineral concealer.

Another thing that I loved about this website is I got to see how the make-up would look on me before I purchased it. They have a makeover where you get to choose your hairstyle, face shape, eye color, hair color, lip size, eyebrows, etc. I mixed and matched make-up, picked the stars that I think look good, and chose colors that Dave likes. Very natural looking make-up. Then I designed my girl and they gave me a list of the make-up to buy to get that look. It was great!

Now I don't want you to think that I am sharing all this because it's some MLM thing or something. I just genuinely love it and was excited about it. I thought that every girl should be able to afford beautiful make-up, and I wanted to share it with my girlfriends.

Okay, drum roll please. The website is E.L.F. Cosmetics.

It is such a fun website and I truly think you will like it. I have researched reviews on their brushes and I have learned that the best are their "studio" brushes. They are soft and don't shed. The reviews I have found on this make-up is amazing. Everyone loves it and now in this months Glamour they tell you how much they love it! The lipstick is so moisturizing and soft! I am all for make-up that gives me healthier more beautiful skin!

I hope all of you enjoy it if you do purchase make-up from there. The average cost is $3 per item!! Yes, I said 3!! They do have make-up other than mineral, but the mineral is my favorite. If you have never tried mineral make-up I would definitely recommend buying 1 item on this website that is a mineral item and just test it out. I have never felt as beautiful as I do when I have mineral make-up on. I feel flawless and light and airy and stunning. Plus, it's so much fun to put on make-up. It makes it even better knowing you are getting good make-up for cheap!

If any of my friends purchase any make-up from ELF I want you to leave me a comment and tell me how you like it, what you purchased, and if you would recommend, so I can try it!! I don't have my brushes yet, but when I get them I will let you know how good they really are. I will admit that those are the only thing I have really been skeptical about because I know how expensive good brushes are. So here's to keeping my fingers crossed and looking beautiful!!

Food Restrictions

So we all know Jill's addiction to food aka 300lb Girlfriend. ;) So I am really struggling with this no food thing. I know I have to do it so I don't die, but at the same time don't you think going out eating your favorite foods sounds better? LOL I'm totally kidding. I'm not about to give up my life with my sweetheart so I can go eat a plate of ribs, but just to let you all know what my Holidays are going to look like I'll share. :)
The doctor has informed me that for the next 3 months I can have absolutely no meat (but thinly sliced deli meat). Just to put this into perspective that means no Turkey on Thanksgiving and no Ham on Christmas Eve. Now, if you understand Jilli at all you will know this is the greatest sacrifice of my life!! Like I told Oprah, "I live to eat, not eat to live". Now granted I'm being a little dramatic about all of this, but I really am devastated. Okay, lets continue. So, no meat. The 2nd part of this diet, no fresh fruits or vegetables for 4 months. I am so sad about this. I wait every year for Fuji apple season which starts in November in Utah. So of course, Fuji apple season starts, I get sick, and won't be able to eat any the entire time they are ripe. Not only that, this means NO salads, NO salsa, NO oranges during Christmas time, NO pies at Thanksgiving, NOTHING. Absolutely no fresh fruits or veggies. I no longer get to dip my carrot strips in dressing or eat my celery sticks at night. I am so devastated. I really think before these next 3 months are over I will cry many times.

Now, the fat person inside of me should be thrilled because what does this mean that I can eat? Puddings, yogurts, ice cream, mashed potatoes, Popsicles, soups, cheese, pasta, and every other fattening thing you could imagine. The crazy thing is that I don't crave those foods anymore. My most favorite things to eat are the things that I can no longer eat. I'm so sad. Yes, I'm looking for a little sympathy because I'm so sad over this. My Holidays are going to tough this year.

Along with the 1st 2 restrictions another one that is a doozy is that I am on only soft foods for the 1st month. I am on yogurts and puddings and anything that is basically baby food for 30 days. Wow, this is going to be a long month. Of course it's Thanksgiving with my family this year, and I won't even get to enjoy my mom and dad's amazing cooking because I can't eat it. One good thing, I am going to make the most amazing sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top and I will eat every bit of them! ;) That is one thing that I am not going to miss out on!

Thank you everyone who reads this and allows me to whine and complain for a minute. I got it out of my system and I think I'll make it. I promised Dave I would do it, so I have to make it. I guess I should probably live for a little bit longer, even if it means no good food :) Happy Holidays!

Nov 3, 2009


Well the Doctor's don't know what is wrong with me, and why I am not able to keep down any food. I go in for an exploratory surgery tomorrow morning at 7. I will admit I am terrified. I am just expecting the worse. I am worried that I am going to go through what I went through this summer and I am terrified. I have been crying all night. I can't seem to get the worst possible scenario out of my head. I know things will go smoothly and I will be just find because Dave gave me a blessing letting me know that, but I am still scared. Please say a prayer for me if you get a chance. I go into LDS Hospital at 7am and have am scheduled for surgery at 7:15am. We'll see how it goes. I am hoping they will fix me and get me feeling better and finally figure out what is wrong with me and why I am not able to eat. I'm exhausted and weak, and ready to not feel sick anymore. I'm also ready to stop throwing up. My mom is taking care of me because it is Dave's mid-terms and I need him to focus on that and not worry about his wife. I know that sounds impossible but he has to do it. I need my husband to focus on his school and his straight A's that he is pulling right now, and I have to feel better.
Out of everything that is bothering me the number 1 thing that is bothering me is that Dave will not have someone to make him breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I am devastated that I will not be here to take care of my husband. I'm crushed and I can't stop crying. My heart aches that I am not going to be with Dave. I'm devastated that I am going to be staying in the Hospital without him. Oh well, as long as he focuses on his school I will feel much better.
Okay I am going to try to get a few hours of sleep before I have to leave for the Hospital. Praise the world for my mom and that she doesn't work so she will be able to take care of me while my husband is taking care of our family.
I'm going to be okay. I'm going to survive this. They are going to find out what is wrong and for once I am going to start feeling better. Life has to get better. My health has to start improving because I don't think it can get any worse. :) I'll keep you updated while I'm in the Hospital. If you want to come visit me I would love it, just call first. Call LDS Hospital and ask for Jill Strasburg's room. 801-408-1100. Love you all!!

Halloween Fun/Paula's Party

This picture was the best of Halloween night. Bric, Dave, and Laurz, got in for a picture together. Dave told me to take it and it snapped right as he was kissing Bric. Bricden completely freaked out right after I grabbed the shot. It was absolutely hilarious and made the whole night!! Dave also winning best costume was pretty cool. Melissa made threw an amazing party!! Thanks again, so much, for having us. As always, we all missed Bonnie and Kimball.
Davey and Skyler
Dave and I had a great Halloween. He dressed up as the Count from Sesame Street, as well as many other characters because his costume got modified all night. He would take something off and become someone else, put a mask on and become someone else, and etc. It was so fun and so hilarious. I was a Vampress and I colored and ratted my hair and it literally looked like a wig. It was great! We went to Lou and Paula's for Dave's Mom's Birthday party. How fun! I know. I can't imagine how cool it would be to be born on Halloween. You would get a be a real witch all the time and blame it on your Birthday!! You could just tell everyone, "Hey I was born a Witch." :) We had so much fun! Here are a few pics from the night.
