Spent time with Ethan again!!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I went to the doctor today and have to have surgery. I don't have to be intubated, but I do have to be put out. I am not happy about it, but he feels I really need to do it. I will do it in May. Tomorrow I will call and find out when. It will be outpatient surgery and not a very long one. I was hoping for a surgery free year. Not to be. I am a little upset and stressed today. I tried to deal with it at the time I was feeling stressed, it didn't work to well. I did exercise 60 minutes today and that helped some. I also met my Diabetes Prevention Plan goal of losing 19 pounds. It is a 16 week goal that I accomplished in 9 weeks!! emoticon I was so excited when I stepped on the scale. emoticon I am now working on my bigger goal of the 70 total pounds as posted on my ticker. emoticon The doctor was so excited for me because on his scale I have lost 20 pounds!! Of course, that was at 9 a.m. and I weigh in at DPP at 12 p.m. I only slept 5 hours last night, so I am hungry and in pain. Hoping to sit back and put the heating pad on my back while watching a movie. I just need to finish up on here., then I can rest.

I picked up Ethan from school today and spent 3 hours with him. He is so easy to entertain!! emoticon And always so happy!! He puts a smile on my face!! emoticon I got a haircut today and it looks and feels so good!! What a great reward for reaching my first goal!
emoticon Well, I am going to say goodbye for now and remember...it is what we make it!! emoticon

    Sorry to ear you will need surgury, no one likes going through that. Hoping the pain is gone once the surgury recovery is over.
    I get to go down to Kansas sometime next week to visit daughter and family. I'm sure my granddaughter has grown since seeing her at Christmas time, so happy to bwe going to see them, see always makes me happy to---of course she also knows which buttons to push too.
