Sorry for being missing on the boards. Lots happening.

I went to the sleep specialist Friday - I have sleep apnea - back into hospital on last Sunday night, wired up again and testing a mask. Appointment tomorrow to organise hiring the CPAP machine and a mask - back to that specialist 21 December.

Off to Albury today to see back surgeon - have to have another cortisone injection in my spine, and if that doesn't work, surgery on L3, L4 - not as big a surgery as before on L4, L5.

I had the cortisone injection in my hip for the bursitis - that has helped a bit. Don't think I will have the injection in the left hip - see how the one in the spine goes.

Been on track most of yesterday and all today. WI and WW in the morning.

I bought myself a Fitbit - I lost my Omron pedometer last Thursday grrrr.... but the Fitbit seems good.

Enjoyed the day today in Albury shopping before seeing the surgeon. Bought 3 new tops and some bits and pieces, had morning tea and lunch and stayed on plan! Woo hoo.

    It is good to hear from you. I think you will notice a world of difference with the CPAP.
    I hope the injections work for you.

    You have a lot going on! A have sleep apnea, and the CPAP machine made a world of difference as far as my quality of life with better sleep. Best of luck to you - hopefully some of the problems can get resolved!

    Since you do have apnea, it is wonderful that you will get the CPAP. I had a sleep study done on the 11th of this month. I haven't heard from my doctor yet. Chances are I will be getting a CPAP too. Good going on the rest of your great accomplishments for staying on track! emoticon emoticon
