I can't believe it has been 9 days since I posted an entry. I have been trying to do it for days now but something always comes up. My daughter needs the computer, the phone rings or the dog needs my attention. I have been so busy lately that I missed my anniversary of Nov. 5th of when I started writing in this journal. It has been a great year and I have met so many great j-land friends. Even though I don't write in my journal that much anymore or comment a whole lot in your journals I just wanted to let you all know that I am reading them and enjoying what is going on in your lifes. You all mean the world to me.
On Monday I went to see the gastric bypass surgeon. I was only in his office for about 10 minutes. I have to go on Wednesday to be evaluated. They have this woman on staff who just fights your insurance company if you don't get approved. This is not a snap decision for me. I researched this 2 years ago and my hubby and I went to see films on the procedure and meet other patients who have had this done. My insurance at the time would not cover it. I am trying at a different hospital and we also have different insurance this time. The doctor told me it takes 6 months to a year for everything to go through.
I couldn't believe how much weight I have gained since I fell off my diet. When I got on the scale at the doctor's office, it was one of the scales that does the bmi and everything. I was in shock. My body is starting to feel the effects of all this weight. I am on 3 medications right now. 2 are for my blood pressure and the other is Pepcid for the ulcer that I had years ago but I still have to take the Pepcid becauseI bled out twice from it. The first time I thought I had the bad case of the flu but went to the emergency room and I was down 4 pints of blood. I guess I should have known something was wrong when my stools were black. (TMI) LOL
I have been doing tons of cleaning in the house the pass couple of weeks. I put my Christmas decorations up the weekend after Thanksgiving. We decided we are going to my sister in law's work on Thanksgiving. She is a waitress and has to work that day. I love this idea because I don't have to cook. Everyone in the family is basically doing their own thing. I am so happy my husband's days off are Thursday and Friday or he would have to work those days. He is probably going to do the outside of the house next Friday. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
I just love all the tags and graphics that everyone has been putting in their journals and sharing. They are all so beautiful. I especially love this one because I collect snow globes/music boxes. Thanks De over at D's Designs . She makes some amazing tags.
Well, I am off to vacuum some of the bedrooms. Take Care.
