I am angry at you. Over a year and a half ago, I quit smoking so I wasn't hurting you anymore. How do you repay me and say thank you? You develop ulcerative colitis, add 30 + pounds and make me very uncomfortable.
Everyday, I try and give you the exercise you need. How do you repay me? You refuse to give up the extra pounds. Instead you store them because of the stupid diet for colitis.
You know, I am trying to help you! You could give a little bit. Just a half a pound a week. That is all I'm asking. I could just sit on my a@@ all day and not do anything for you. I'm thinking you would have been happier had I kept smoking. I think then the UC never would have surfaced and the weight would still be off.
Not to mention, you don't help when every time I try to do the resistance bands, you send both shoulders into a frenzy. C'mon you have to cut me some slack. I am trying to do what is best for you. Can't you help just a bit?
Don't you remember back in 87 when we lost 70 lbs? You were so happy and we did it without exercise..just diet. Now, we are doing both and you are acting like a grumpy old woman and I can't figure out why. When I tried to eat healthy with 23 grams of fiber and all those fruits and vegetables, it was you who came up with the colitis. Never once discussed it with me. So now, we have to do this white flour diet.
We need to come to some sort of compromise here. It seems that I am doing all the compromising and you are coming up with all the issues. How about we work as a team and get to where we need to be?
Thanks for listening and I hope you will give some thought to what I have said.

Finally, all of our tests and hospital visits are done
Got in 2 hours of Walk it Out today. Realized I am still sore from where they removed the polyps so I decided to wait until tomorrow to go ride JC. Also, I really needed to catch up on work today.
Ok, so the irony of the century...We got a person to move in with my mother. He is a really nice guy and they have known each other a long time. He is about 25 years or more younger than she is. It was working out really well. Mom wasn't alone and he had a place to live..he had just lost his house in a divorce. My sister was there last weekend and, before she went back to Chicago, he told her that he would watch out for my mother as he felt he owed her his life. My mother is a psychiatrist and does hypnosis on people diagnosed with cancer. He had stage 3 lunge cancer and, after hypnosis, it went away. My sister was relieved to have him there. We all were. He was my idea as I have known him a long time.
The day I had my colonoscopy. I got a call from my mother as I blogged earlier. She found him in the house. Turns out he had a massive coronary and they think he may have also had a stroke. My sister and I were saying that it took my mom only two weeks to give him a heart attack ugh! This is not good.
In the mean times, she actually asked my son to stay with her until he gets out of the hospital or whatever the outcome. My son is close to 18 and they get along well. At least she asked him instead of yelling etc.
My sister asked if I had anyone else on the backburner that could stay with her. I don't. I said the next one they would have to find. I am seriously hoping this guy pulls through; he is a wonderful guy. Really weird because he was always afraid he would find her laying there instead it was the opposite. In many ways, she may have saved his life as he was living alone in an apartment. G-d works in mysterious ways.

DH had cardiac cath and it showed that there is nothing wrong with his heart. I really like the new cardiologist. Brian doesn't have to have a stress test again for 2 years. However, the doctor did tell him that he has to start exercising at least 20 minutes a day doing cardio. Yeah for this doctor. The other one has never said anything to anyone about exercise.
Now, we just wait to see what my biopsy from yesterday shows. Then next month Brian has to go to a Rheumatologist to see if he has rheumatoid arthritis. But, at least his heart is good and, maybe, I can get him to exercise with me.
Unfortunately, the only exercise I got today was walking back and forth the halls of the hospital because I couldn't stand sitting that long. I am hoping to go to the barn tomorrow and this weekend we are taking off from showing houses as Brian is suppose to take it easy for 3 days. Not a lot of walking or going up and down stairs.
On another note, I am so glad that Best Buy falsely advertised their price on a blue ray dvd player because I ended up getting the same one at Amazon for $6.00. I use an Amazon visa and now they automatically put your points on Amazon. I had enough points for the entire purchase :) It was $160 blue ray player. Best Buy said it was $169.99, but then they rang it up at $199.99. When I called them, they said that you have to have this coupon and that thing. Forget it! I'll take it for 6 bucks. Yeah Amazon!

Wow, really long night. That colonoscopy prep stuff takes me like 10 hours to get rid of. Basically, got no sleep last night. Then, I was first on the list for this morning so they only put me out for 45 minutes. How rude! At least they could have let me sleep longer
It was really weird. I woke up towards the end of it and could feel the thing then I heard them say (not knowing I was awake) two polyps removed uh oh. I was told I had to have a clean colonoscopy in order not to have to go back next year. I don't want to
I forgot to mention that my doctor looks like the guy who played in the Rocky Horror Picture Show...the bald guy with the long blond hair and hunchbacked except my doc isn't hunchbacked. But, he is bald with long blond hair coming out of the back.
Was home by 10:45 this morning. Ate and promptly slept for like 3 or more hours. Then, of course, my mother had to start calling in hysterics that she needed me at her house. She couldn't be alone. Wouldn't you know it, the person who moved in with her had a heart attack ugh! I told her my son would be there soon enough. I was still out of it from the meds etc. Not that she cared.
When my son got there, she had called again and screamed about having no food for him. My husband said he had money to ride his bike to Jimmy John's and get something. She then hung up on my husband. Then she tried another tactic of calling me to find out about the colonoscopy which I had already told her about and again asked us to go to dinner. My husband said no for the 10th time due to my colonoscopy and he has to have the cardiac cath tomorrow. Leave it to my mother to make another rotten day become about herself. Her room mate is the one that had the heart attack not her. Just don't get it.
But, dr did say if the biopsy is ok, I don't have to go back for another 5 years. I will know on Friday or Monday.
