Welcome, December!

Here is a quickie update. I don't want my faithful friends to think I dropped off the face of the Earth!  I think I'm coming down with a cold.  I have the scratchy throat, plugged nose and watery eyes.  It's the watery eyes that really gets to me!

Nothing much new with me "medical" wise - I think the swelling in my feet are actually improving.  Yesterday I had them down to I could feel my ankle bones again!  Welcome back feet!  I've missed you!  OK....I think I've had too much cold medicine.  I'm actually talking to my feet.....Ha!  I go to the pulmonologist on Monday to get the clearance from his point of view for my bariatric surgery.  I have to visit the website and print out the patient paperwork.  Isn't that clever that they have the PATIENT print out the paperwork now?  Saves them money on paper and ink.  Then I guess I work on getting all the labs and tests done.  Because my doc's office didn't get the auth code for the psychologist at the bariatric center, the center switched my appt to the END of December, pushing everything back a month.  ARGH!  All this time has given me time to think...."Do I really need this surgery?"  Yeah, I guess I do!

Frankie went to the doc this morning for his yearly "check-up" and he still is having problems with vomiting.  It's projectile now - I was cleaning puke off the bathroom wall and under the toilet the other day.  The doctor thinks his stomach is having spasms - so nothing cold to eat or drink.  There goes the iced tea!  Poor Frankie.  He loves his tea.  He also put Frankie back on the medication (Reglan) to take care of the spasms.  I hope it works for him.  I hate seeing him sick like that.  :(  Other than that issue, he is good.  He even is having less pain, too. Yay!

My blog has been picked AGAIN to spotlight on the blog hop "Keepin' Company Thursday"

  8. The whole businesses making the customers do the work for them thing is really annoying to me. When it comes to Drs doing that, there is a way around it. Just show up early (like you would normally for a first appt) and tell them you forgot the paperwork. They'll give you the paperwork to fill out like normal. Or tell them you don't have a printer at home/ it doesn't work/ you were out of ink... or any other excuse you feel like giving. Or just tell them the truth, you pay them enough that they can use their ink and paper for your paperwork.


I would LOVE to hear your thoughts about my blog post today. Would you kindly leave a comment for me?
Thank you so much!

Daily Blessings
