Whew. What a week

Sunday, November 08, 2009

My dear husband has had some serious eye problems over the past 2 years. 2 weeks ago he had what we hoped would be a final eye surgery - alas. It was not to be and when he went in for his checkup on thursday the dr. said "see you on the operating table tomorrow". Alas again - what should have been a 30 minute procedure ended up taking something like 2 hours and he gave us all a scare when his pulse dropped low and refused to climb back up.

This necessitated staying in the city over night - to be close to the doctor and to minimize the overall strain of traveling from our country home so many times.

Saturday morning's check up left us more confident than we had been - and that's a plus.

The other plus was that I was able to eat much more mindfully, much more healthily this time around. Till saturday morning that is - when I learned:

never have a Hardee's breakfast biscuit again. For 600 calories I want something that tastes a heck of a lot better than that.

Ahh well. live and learn. I sure won't do THAT again.

And now it is the beginning of a brand new week. What a gift.

    Glad to hear things are looking more optimistic for your husband's eys.

It is a b.... when you eat something and discover later that it has the same caloric input as a really good meal, all by its lonesome.

Yeah! to new weeks.

    I admire your strength! I am glad to hear that your husband has had encouraging reports.

As far as the Hardees biscuit you go girl. Just think of all the other yummy things you can have for the calories... brilliant
