Joy oh Joy
Well today I got to visit my family doctor for my bi-yearly look see. I had questions as long as your arm about my present state of un-health.
First off I have been on this "gall bladder diet" for over 3 weeks now... I am dying here.. it is easier and shorter to say what I can eat rather than what I can't. And today she added no coffee or tea to the list. NO COFFEE??? You have got to be kidding!!! If I go without coffee someone is gonna die.. honest to god..,someone is gonna die.
She has given me yet another set of pills to take.. I swear I have had more pills in the last 3 weeks than in my entire life ...... However she promised that these pills will kill the fungus that is apparently growing in my system. ewwwww fungus in my body??? I just taught my kiddies at school about fungus.. I can vouch for the fact it is gross !!!
She also told me that they will more than likely be able to do the surgery through my belly button - thank god!!! I have been worried because of the infection that they would have to do the surgery the old fashioned way. She believes that there is a good chance that it won't be that bad. However she did say because I have been waiting so long for the surgery that the recovery time will probably be longer than the usual 2 weeks.
On the plus side I have been fussing over how fatigued I have been. I have been napping like crazy and still sleeping 8 - 9 hours every night. That she explained is because I actually still have the infection - it is just controlled now. And my body is fighting - or trying to fight - the infection. Never mind the fact that I am living on soup and broiled chicken and rice. Not much energy food going in this old body of mine,
She suggested I might be better off going on sick leave now.. so that I can nap and rest and take care of myself until the surgery. BUT I really want to tough it out if I can. At least until I see the surgeon. IF my surgery can happen before Christmas then yeah I will work.. if however it can't be done that soon then I am gonna beg/plead for him to fill in the papers for insurance / sick leave until I am back on my feet. I see the surgeon on the 1st.. just a couple more weeks.
On a different note.. I am really trying to come up with an idea of how to tease Warren about which munch I want to go to this weekend. I have officially said I MIGHT go to both....... but now I have to come up with some plan or hints to lead Warren to the right one.. sort of like a treasure hunt..probably sounds silly to you.. but we thought it was kinda funny and definitely a challenge for me...
This blog is getting more and more vanilla as time goes on....... thankfully there are still some of you who don't seem to care :)
