DH gone now for 10 weeks

Saturday, April 06, 2013

So took DH to airport early this morning. I was actually sad to see him go knowing that I will be alone for 10 weeks. Usually I look forward to having my alone time and doing what I want when I want, but for some reason this time I was sad. But when I got home, I walked the dogs and that picked me up and now I am looking forward to my alone time.
Hopefully today I will get the test results and will be able to get together with my doctor to see if the tests turned up anything.
Yesterday I was feeling fine until I ate lunch (2 slices rice bread, 1/2 avocado, chicken breast, pear). Then I had nausea. I hate that feeling as I have no appetite and know that I have to force myself to eat....but all I could get down was saltines and butter for dinner. And my weight is still down 107. I know, I know you all would like to have a little less appetite, but I assure you it isn't fun. I really hope I get answers and can do things to prevent episodes of having to go on IV. If I can get healthy and get over the fear of travel, I might go up to Pennsylvania and surprise my DH. He has told me that he feels sad but understands that I am afraid of travel.
Oh well, enough of that......I have all of you buddies out there to communicate with and that means so much to me!!! I don't feel all alone knowing that you all support me and cheer me on!!!
Thank you all for your concern and comments.
Here's to all of us having a great day!

    Sorry you felt sad this time Sallie. You did good going out for that walk ; ) I bet he and the little ones would love a surprise like that!! I wish I could surprise you with a visit right now... I really would if I could. We are having those talks again to try and save up for Dec again. Thinking it would be a little more doable if we only go for 2 weeks instead of the whole month. But then it feels like it is just not enough time too. Such a big thing for us. It would be worth it if we do make it happen for our little guys though.
    Take care Sallie! We are all here for you ; )!

    I'm sorry that you are not feeling too well again. Let's hope
    that the results can pinpoint what the problem is. I feel sad
    for you to know you will be all alone while DH is in PA.
    I am praying that you get well enough and that you can go
    and surprise him. Just get stronger and look after yourself.
    I hope have a great Sunday. emoticon

    Gee, sure hope you'll be feeling better soon. So sorry to hear you've been under the weather. It does seem like 10 weeks is a long time, but if you can keep busy, it'll help the time to go by a little faster. Maybe when you've gotten better you'll be able to surprise your DH with a visit. Glad to hear you have your dogs ~ everything goes better with our canine friends. Sending get well wishes your way!! emoticon emoticon

    Sallie, I'm getting a bit concerned about you being alone without knowing what's going on with your health. Losing too much weight can be just as dangerous as gaining too much; and like gaining too much, you find out how much is "too much" by making mistakes.

    After you figure out what you need to do for hydration, electrolytes, and general health, I hope you consider setting a minimum weight below which you don't want to drop. It can be hard to eat more when your mindset has been to lose weight, but there comes a point where you have to do it.

    I find myself HAVING to check your blog daily to see if you've found out anything yet. Sorry you had another spell yesterday. I like my DH gone sometimes, but only for a few days. You will really miss him. Hope you do get better and pop on up there.

    I would enjoy some solitude but, you're right- ten weeks is a long time.

    I hope you get some answers from the tests that will explain what's going on with you. Sorry to hear you're still not feeling up to par and having a hard time eating. Let's hope all this will change real soon!

    My weight (also 107) has been down recently due to illness. B/c of constant stomach(and back) aches, particularly after eating, plus gas/bloating, and some other not-so-pleasant changes, I just haven't wanted to eat much, which is totally out of character for me. While on the one hand it's kind of nice seeing my weight drop a bit below my goal weight (of 110), it's also a bit scary 'cause I don't have much to spare anymore. (I'm having some tests done in the upcoming weeks to properly diagnose.) In short, I'm feeling a bit conflicted... I've always wanted to be trim, but now, when I could use an extra pound or two, I wish my weight wasn't quite so low. Do you ever feel this way, Sallie, now that you're not feeling 100%? I'm actually trying to put on a few pounds this weekend! Feels strange to me as I've NEVER been in this predicament in my entire life! Lol. Hope you are feeling better and glad to see there are so many thoughtful, supportive people out there in Spark Land! xo

    Sorry you are not feeling up to your usual perky self. You were probably sad because you are not feeling 100%. Hope you will find some answers soon that will allow you to understand your body better. emoticon

    ¡Buenos días, sweet Sallie! Sending you some virtual emoticon this morning via the mysterious ways of cyberspace... I have a bit of a sense that not feeling well, you were perhaps feeling a little blue this morning when you took DH to the airport... Aw, I feel bad for you; I know I always feel a little down - and not in response to anything actually going on in my life - when I have tummy trouble or some sort of bug. I wonder if some of that has temporarily settled over you right now...

    I saw your lunch for yesterday, and it looked pretty mild to cause tummy woes... maybe you're still on the "still getting better" side of the healing trajectory, and you'll soon be feeling better. A little exercise and sunshine tend to help my mood when it's a little down... I'm glad you walked your doggies :) I know you'll be glad to get some answers from the test. You know, waiting for test results - even when we know they're going to point us in the direction of the appropriate treatment or cure - is always stressful to some extent.

    We're with you 150% as you get on the "feelin' better" path... In any event, you have a huge "weight cushion" to play with for enjoyable meals out. I'm at 116.4 and would like to knock off that 1.4 lbs. to have my five-pound cushion, which I save for my twice-a-month "feasts" .

    Sending you a little spring sunshine to keep you on top!
