Well it was a good day, but didn't go the way I wanted it to. Started with the new doctor. I had a 10:00 appointment and they told me to be there at 9:40, but I didn't get called to check my financials until 10:35. I got seen by the resident and the med student at 11:00. The doctor came in and told me that he won't do the replacement until I lose 40 lbs. Due to my higher BMI he said the odds of infection doubles and with that I could lose a leg. While I understand that, it could have been put better. He spent a total of 4 minutes talking to me. The positive was that I was supposed to go to the old ortho doctor on Friday morning to get my cortisone shots, but I got them today. So it will be working by the time we drive to K.C. I was really taking a chance to get the shots and then hit the road. I left there at 11:35. Needless to say I wasn't a real happy camper. So I came home and wrote out a new low carb diet to follow. Next week I will start some therapy which he prescribed to help with flexibility and could help with the weight loss. I am giving myself 4 months to try and get the weight off. This really pushes my schedule back, but maybe God is telling me that I need more time. Let go and let God! that is my motto. And had a great meeting tonight. I am feeling so confident with the team we have. The talk with the guy I dreaded turned out much better than I thought it would. He was receptive to our comments and agreed to rewrite his talk with our suggestions. he has 4 weeks left to get this done, so that is plenty of time. All in all might not have been the day I planned, but it did turn out well. And tomorrow is the big "65" ! I don't have anything planned but maybe attack the grass, since I am going to be gone this weekend, I better get it done.
