Whirlwind of moods and activities
Tuesday, August 09, 2016
Wow i have had such a whirlwind of a time this past week. From finding out my aneurysm needs surgery to my granddaughter's 11th birthday party. My moods have been all over the place and my body is just plain exhausted. That being said today was just a "Me" day. I did basically what ever I wanted to do for most of the day. It was really nice and really needed.
Here is a picture of the cake I made and the fruit tray. My granddaughter's birthday was a success. She was so happy and I loved seeing her that way. We asked her on a scale of 1 to 10 how her birthday was and she gave us a 75,000. LOL. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off for 3 days but it was so worth it. Now I just have 2 more birthdays to help plan this month for 2 of my other grandchildren.
As far as the surgery i have my initial consultation on August 22nd with the doctor in Little Rock that will be doing the surgery if I am approved to have it. I am really conflicted on this one. On one hand I hope my lungs are strong enough to have the surgery since it is what I need but on the other hand I kind of hope they aren't because it scares me to death to think about them opening up my skull and doing surgery on my brain. But I know that God will be with me no matter what happens.
Finally, I have reached another milestone in my weight loss. My doctor took me off of one of my blood pressure medications. I took my last pill on Thursday night. The nurses in my respiratory therapy took my blood pressure today before and after exercising and it was perfect. I was so excited! My doctor said he wanted to watch my blood pressure closely and if it stays normal I can stay off of the medication. This a huge step for me. I have been on medicine for high blood pressure for about 20 years. I was hoping that my blood pressure would get back to the normal range when I started losing weight. If I am able to keep losing weight hopefully I will be able to stop taking the other one as well.
God bless you and keep you on your journey! Have a fabulous night!
