I had to get up early, since I have a busy day ahead. I have to schedule a follow-up visit with the doctor, since I was in hospital. That will be 3rd visit in 3 weeks now. My stomach pain is almost gone now, so hopefully I am past whatever it was. My brother wants me to go in today, since he has a test at school, and has a short day. I think making it Thursday, his day off, would be better, since then I would have a better idea of if this was behind me. I was just in hospital Friday night, so I don't want doctor to see me, then have it come back. I have gained about 3 lbs. dealing with this problem, and just want it done, so I can get back on track.
Yesterday I had a salad for lunch, so I just had my planned lunch/dinner at one sitting. I had a lb of ground beef with tomatoes, and onions. The meat was higher fat, with chunks of white in it, so it was cheap. Perfect for me. I bought 2 packages. I have a hankering for red meat this week. Does everybody drain their ground beef ? I did not, just added the onion, and tomato, and I even drank the juice afterwards..lol. It tasted goooood. I was worried that very high fat was a source of the pain in my stomach, since I have no gullbladder, but doc said it was some sort of virus.Not diet related at all.
I am back to walking, starting yesterday, another 90 minutes later. Going to be 43 and rainy today, so after breakfast, I am walking outside. One warm day, and back in the 20's tomorrow. Then probably, a doctor visit, go to the library, do some laundry, and cook my lunch/dinner. I am just boiling 24 ozs of chicken, and a can of peas. I just have no idea what to do with peas. I think of them as a side dish. I also have a mailing to go to. I am active in politics, so it is fun to go hand out with other people who are also interested. Lots of gossip..lol. We have our convention this Saturday, and stuff is " going down ". I am just happy to be able to get out of the house.
Anyways, hoping the vet office is open Maw, and they figure things out. Have a great day. Sorry I rambled.
