Another day,... another day of appointments

So guess what??? after all that, I still have more testing to do. Ho Hum.... Will it ever end. Today I got to do a Halter test.. Basically they put sensors on my chest that are attached to a heart monitor and I get to wear that for a day.

Then next week I am doing a breathing (PFT I think is what its called) test. That is supposed to help monitor how I will do breathing while being sedated. (I tried to tell them breathing was overrated, but they ignored me).

Then I have some more blood work to do (If only they would wear Edward masks when they take my blood.. LOL

And then...... Once I have my date, a couple of days before it I have another series of tests to do.... More blood work, a CMF, CMA (I think) and a Pregnancy test. Geez.... I hope I get an award or something....

Anyways. That is where I am at the moment...

OH P.S. I lost 4 pounds since my last visit. See I should go to vegas more often. hehehe...

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

Saw the Dietitian today

Hey there, so today, I went to my monthly meeting with my dietitian. She is a nice lady, that calls me on my bull....! Hahah, I so need that. I sometimes try to con even myself into believing that I'm being good. lol

Anyways, while I was there I verfied that my information was sent to the surgeons office. She said I should hear from them in about 2 weeks to set my date. Once my date is set, I am to start a semi-liquid diet. Basically that means that I will get to have 1 meal a day and nothing but liquids the rest of the day. I need to loose weight right before the surgery so that my fat will be softer and easier for them to cut through to do the surgery. (Yes this is a graphic blogsite)

Anyways. so thats where I am.. I have started walking with my family. (My dad, mom and sometimes Jaron) during the late afternoon, evening time. When its starting to cool down basically. We havent gone too far compared to most people, but, with my dad having emphazima, and my weight issue, we are taking it slow. My doctor agreed this was a good idea. Although when it starts heating up, he recommends finding something indoors to do.

Hope everyone has a great week and I will be back with more info soon.
