Wow - sorry I'm so late posting. It's been a day!!
How was your Thanksgiving? I hope everyone had a good one. We had a nice day. Our daughter, granddaughter and a friend of our daughter came for lunch. They weren't here very long because daughter had to take granddaughter to her dad, but it was still nice. We don't see them nearly often enough, especially, because of some high drama that took place last Christmas. Unfortunately, husband carries a grudge, so when he thinks he's been "wronged", he doesn't get over it quickly (sometimes, never). As it turned out, one of the people involved in the drama last year wasn't here this year... NO DRAMA!! Yay.
Anyway, we had a good meal and a pleasant day. What more could I ask for (other than a 40 lb weight loss??). lol
I think I mentioned last week that I needed to get an MRI on my foot to see what's causing a lump. As it turns out, it seems like I now have 2 lumps, but that remains to be seen. I was able to get hold of the imaging facility on Friday and get an appointment for Dec 5. I was surprised it would take that long to get in, but I guess it's all a waiting game, these days.
I was also referred to a hand doctor. I was told that if I didn't hear from them in a couple of days that I should call them. I didn't hear from them within the time frame, so as instructed I called them. As it turns out, they did have the referral but I was told (rather snidely) that I needed to wait for them to call me... "gee, we're on the phone now, can we just make an appointment?" Nope - the receptionist was adamant that I could not get an appointment until THEY call me. I said: "well, I guess that won't be this week, then?" And she said: "No, we start calling referrals in about a week and with the holiday, that's going to take longer." She was quick to tell me that *I* did everything I was supposed to - I wondered if that meant I wouldn't be dropped back to the bottom of the list... lol I'm thinking I'll be lucky to hear from them by Friday and also thinking that I'll be lucky to have an appointment by March/April.
So life goes on!!
Anyway, I'm still walking 2-3 miles most days and my weight stayed stable over Thanksgiving. However - this morning, after I'd gone for my walk, I stepped on the scale and was up a pound. I took a look at my feet and realized why - yeah, they were swollen quite a bit. I'm assuming the swelling will go down in a day or so, but for now, I'll claim the 1.2 lb gain and try to work it off this coming week!! Ugghhh!!!
So that's my story. How are you doing? I hope Thanksgiving wasn't too rough on anyone and hopefully, you did better than I did. :-)
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
