Sorry for being missing on the boards. Lots happening.
I went to the sleep specialist Friday - I have sleep apnea - back into hospital on last Sunday night, wired up again and testing a mask. Appointment tomorrow to organise hiring the CPAP machine and a mask - back to that specialist 21 December.
Off to Albury today to see back surgeon - have to have another cortisone injection in my spine, and if that doesn't work, surgery on L3, L4 - not as big a surgery as before on L4, L5.
I had the cortisone injection in my hip for the bursitis - that has helped a bit. Don't think I will have the injection in the left hip - see how the one in the spine goes.
Been on track most of yesterday and all today. WI and WW in the morning.
I bought myself a Fitbit - I lost my Omron pedometer last Thursday grrrr.... but the Fitbit seems good.
Enjoyed the day today in Albury shopping before seeing the surgeon. Bought 3 new tops and some bits and pieces, had morning tea and lunch and stayed on plan! Woo hoo.
