Quite a week

It's been quite a week. Last Wednesday I went to my Lap-Band Doctor and he added 1cc of saline to the band system. What a change! I have spent several day in Hell trying to relearn how to eat again. I am back to 2oz portions of mostly soft foods. If I try to vary or forget I PAY! Let's add to that a very tough couple of sessions in group therapy and it has made for tough times. I have also been so busy I can't think. Everything has been happening at once. I was supposed to go to a meeting tonight and I just decided I needed to stay home for a change. I will be out tomorrow evening through Saturday and it looks kind of like I be out Sunday; busy, busy me!

I had a CAT scan today. These would not be a big deal except for the fact that I am allergic to the dye they use. For that reason I have to be pre medicated for the test. This means that I have to take a pill in the absolute middle of the night (when I should be asleep.) I also had to wake up at 6 AM just to take my normal meds and have two oz of breakfast. The rest of the morning was taking pills and contrast solution at odd intervals. I was wondering why I felt so tired so now I think I know.

My Father is back from his wintering in the South of Georgia. He says he weathered the whole thing well. I'll probably visit him next week, if there is any time for it. Sid I mention that my car was fixed? I once again have heat and an intact panel and all my windows. I still have to have the radio installed, but I have everything for that. It is so nice to have heat in the car once again!

Enough for tonight. I am really tired.

Love,
Shel
