A Few Things
Saturday, June 12, 2010
So i have been really busy the last few days without much time to myself. I am off to bed but thought I would check in real quick. A few things...
An old friend of mine back home in Canada is going through some scary health issues at the moment. The short of it is this...
Last week she had outpatient surgery (breast reduction) and by Friday was feeling very sick. Went to ER they thought she may have contracted a gastrointestinal virus while she was in for her procedure. My Monday she had worsened and was then diagnosed with septic shock (toxic shock syndrome). The doctors are very cautious about admitting to a link between her original surgery and this situation.
By Tuesday evening, she was on a ventilator to regulate her breathing, she was under sedation, and things were looking quite grim. However she had surgery that evening to remove some infected tissue, and that seemed to be having the positive effects they were hoping for.
This morning she was breathing on her own (but still has the tube in), is out of sedation but still has the line in in case they need to re sedate her. She hasnt had much change today, good or bad.
I would ask for prayer for her and for healing. Also for strength for her husband as he tries to be by her side and be with their 2 small kids. I will keep you all posted.
I have been doing great this week as far as food and working out goes and am feeling pretty good about things. I decide to have an off day today. Chris and I went out to dinner and got some nachos. When we were done our waiter walked by and said "that was quick work!" GEEZ I am not that much of a piggy am i? lol
After dinner Chris surprised me and took me to get a WII and a WII Fit Plus. I am SO excited and hope this helps me even more in my weight loss.
It cracks me up when it measured my weight and BMI and it goes all the way to the top and the music goes BONG BUM BUM BONG BONG BOOOONG!!!! Those with one MUST know what I am talking about. Then the WII Balance Board says "Thats OBESE!" LOL I dunno, is it weird I think it's funny. I mean not that I am considered obese but that the little computer voice tells me so. HA.
Ok it is WAY past my bedtime. I am about to get silly.
