Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

I have weighed myself every Monday for the past month, and they all said the same thing, 176. So, I guess that is my new "normal".

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

I remember one time I has a nasty stomach virus, really upset my stomach, frequent visits to the bathroom, that sort of thing, no vomiting. And it didn't pass, after 4 days I got worried, went to an Immedicare place. Nurse said " Now, I know you don't feel like it, but try to eat and drink flui...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

It was just scar tissue, no more tumors for me! Yay!

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Hi Momma! Sorry, I thought I had posted an update! Oops! So, one week in the hospital, 2 weeks recovery at home, then I went back to work 1/2 time, the next week I was back to full time. I'm doing great. I still can't pick up heavy things, and I get sore at my incision site when I don't rest, which ...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

163 is the lowest I have been in probably 15 years? And I was dieting and exercising like crazy to get there. It's weird to be close to that so fast, without really trying.

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

167, which is 10 lbs less than my last weight posted, and I'm not happy about it! Before surgery, When I would eat a meal, I couldn't eat as much as usual. It was like my stomach was hitting my tumor, and it made me feel yucky. So I was eating probably half at a meal what I used to. Then I had the s...

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

Wow, SDR, that stinks for your wife! I've had my surgery, it went incredibly well. When the doctor got in there, the tumor was located close to the surface, so he was able to "scoop it out like ice cream", and I only lost 10% of my liver instead of the expected 50%. So my recovery time has...

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

Thanks Momma and SDR, I can feel the love from here. Surgery is happening next Tues, 9AM. I am really looking forward to getting it over and getting this out. I will be on short term leave at work for 6-8 weeks, right in the middle of a huge project. I hate leaving them all up in the air, I was the ...

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

Sorry I haven't posted in a long time. But boy, have I got a whine! In mid-July, I went to the ER for terrible abdominal pain. While testing me to figure out what was causing it, the doctors found a "mass" on my liver. Long story short, it's a hepatic adenoma (tumor). It's not cancerous, b...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

For anyone who was wondering, I am OK. I live near the flooded areas, but luckily was not flooded out. However, our backup data center for work wasn't so lucky. So, been busy rebuilding servers at another location, setting up network, testing failovers, etc. Not a lot of time to post. Haven't weighe...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Go Momma! You can do it! I totally mis-typed San Diego, when what I meant to type was San Francisco. But I have been to San Diego, and yes, I did love it, it was lovely. San Francisco is also lovely, although when I was there, the city had record high's in the 90's one day, and I found out no one in...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Sorry Momma. We all have outfits like that, sad to say. Mine is a red, white & blue stripey number that is partially see-through, which has a built-in white tank for modesty. It is really cute, and so USA holiday appropriate, but the horizontal stripes, plus the clinginess, plus the tank which c...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Come on SDR, time to get back on the wagon and make some progress. I've been 178 for 2 weeks now, but had many complements from coworkers about how good I look. One this week was " I mean, I don't WANT to get diabetes, but it sure is working out well for you!" In reality, I've lost only 17...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Except THIS week it's 177 and I am super excited about it. Not thrilled with how it happened though. A week full of meetings right through lunch, and our cafeteria has degraded in quality so badly, I either started lunch and it was so awful, I threw half of it away, or opted for a salad instead...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Snow in April is normal around here, it can happen in May. This year the winter was very mild, only one serious snowstorm to speak of, and the spring flowers are all in bloom. It ended up not snowing, but it did get cold enough to. Hanging in there at 179. Really wish I could get lower, but I've kin...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Good going Momma! Keep going! I am holding steady at 179. Went to the doctor Monday AM for bloodwork to check my a1c, had to fast. So when I left, I treated myself to a small cinnamon dulce latte from Starbucks. It's my favorite coffee drink, and I only have it once or twice in a year. Well, on an e...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Yeah, I was really surprised too. I have moved to the largest city in the state, lots of docs, usually the top in the state. Everyone comes here for specialists, that's why I even brought up this old complaint! But no, I am labeled as her patient, and my only choices are to a) see the doc I don't li...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Been holding steady at 178 for 2 weeks now. But I really need to add some exercise. Doing any amount of walking right now is wearing me out. On the gastro front, nothing but bad news. Long story short, no gastro in town will see me, because I went to one last year and had a colonoscopy, and now I am...
