Yesterday, I weighed in at 184.6lbs. This puts me officially below my wedding weight (which was around 185-186…don’t remember, honestly).
My pants are all too big for me, except a couple of pairs I can wear with a belt. The ones I can’t wear with a belt…well, they bunch up underneath it and end up [...]
I was told nearly a week ago (September 6) that Santa Claus’s office was going to call me back either that same day, or this past Monday, and have me scheduled to meet with Da Vinci for a surgery consult.
I called Santa Claus’s office this morning and left a message, and Da Vinci’s office [...]
I went to my colonoscopy consult, today. I was afraid he was going to want to do another physical exam, but he said, “Nah, we’re going to be getting up-close-and-personal with you soon using a camera tube, so we’ll let you go without, today.” At least…he has a sense of…humor?
I will update you on [...]
Erin posted a (slightly panicked) email that I’d sent to her and a couple of other folks, and as she pointed out, I was waiting until I was calmer to post details about what’s happening.
Here’s the sequence with which things have been occurring, and what I’m going to do about the ones that are [...]
I went to my Lyme doc, today.
I basically begged him to switch my meds, for two reasons: the doxy makes me puke, and the metronidazole gives me an accent.
He pointed out that changing my abx would “throw the Lyme off,” which is honestly true, from what I understand, so I’m basically going to [...]
I had my consult yesterday with the bowel surgeon…the guy who, as far as I knew, was just going to cut scar tissue off of my bowel and free it up so that I could poop properly.
I just turned 30 (I’ve been trying to write this post since like, 1:30am, but I keep dozing [...]
First, I would like to give a big ol’ shout-out to Dr. Dan Martin of UT Medical Group. He’s one of the best doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with, particularly in regards to something so unpleasant, and every step of the way, he’s listened to me – this doesn’t mean he’s agreed [...]
Today, I was treated to what happens when you try to present a different perspective to a group of people who are dead-set on one mindset. (If you were privy to this situation, don’t mention it, please – I’m making this post because what I have to say relates to my condition, and it was [...]
I have my “Molon Labe” tattoo on my right forearm, as many of you know.
(It’s been there for 5 years, and I haven’t regretted it a single day, even though the placement has caused some concern for employment. Screw it – I can still put a band-aid over it or something.)
Whenever I give [...]
Because my last update included some medical info, but was overshadowed by my bad mood (which is better – it was mostly due to dealing with morons directly after finding out that I have to take yet more [expensive] medication), I’ll go ahead and write another entry with those details.
I got to bed late [...]
