Thursday, August 22, 2013

I'm going to have to make this short, I'm at work. I've had a ton of stuff going on but am working back to normal. I should have about 6 more weeks of insanity and then have my life back to some semblance of "normal."

We moved, out of a house we'd lived in for 15 years due to the neighborhood declining in a serious way. It was no longer safe to walk my dog day or night. All kinds of ugly things had happened, so we made a serious, but good in the long run (I hope at least) decision to let it go and start over. There is no salvaging things at this point.

I'm battling an ever growing hernia next to my stoma and incision that has made the simplest of tasks painful. Tomorrow I see my primary doc to get suggestions and hopefully a referral to PT to help me exercise and strengthen my core without doing any more damage. I see my surgeon in 5 weeks (and hopefully will have lost the 10 I gained and 10 more by then).

So, I'm still here, just about all I have time for is to update my food entries to keep on track. I should be at a place to participate more fully in Oct. Until then, it's 7 days a week of work at work, then work at home and wrapping up the move. I'm too old for this stuff.

    You need a safe neighborhood. It's a good thing you are able to move. Moving is hard, and then you can't find anything. Maybe you'll have a housewarming party when this is all over.

Trust your doctor to do the best for you, but if you have any doubts, get a second opinion.

Best to you!
