Which is a HUGE relief after the heat of the last two weeks!
My stomach is a bit sour right now, which I suspect is from the new medicine. Hopefully that gets better as I get used to it. And I need to email my doctor because I'm running out of the blood pressure medicine.
On August 14 I have to attend a three-hour class about weight-loss surgery. I know there are a lot of different kinds. My co-worker had the gastric sleeve, and she's doing great. I'm skittish about the lap band. I'm just not crazy about having a foreign object embedded in me. But there's still a lot to be learned.
I told my boss the story when I went back to work on Thursday. She said she'll work with me and give me full support. Of course, she hopes I won't tell her on Tuesday night that I'm having surgery on Wednesday morning! No danger of that. Everything needs to be arranged way in advance. I also need to meet with a nutritionist and have a med conference with a psychiatrist, and we need to schedule a sleep study. I don't know yet when that's likely to be.
All of this has left me with even less energy than usual. I'm trying to do at least a little. I got all the dirty pans in my sink and on the stovetop washed before I had "breakfast with Bobby." In a minute I'm going to empty the dishwasher before Chopped comes on. At some point I need to put the dirty dishes into it!
