Well, I still haven’t read anything ~ it’s been 6 months and I just can’t seem to stick to anything. My schedule is crazy ~ get up, work, workout, cook dinner, make my foods for the next day, go to bed…and this is everyday. I do sometimes read a little when I’m on the stationary bike, but that’s about it. Although, I’m re-reading Getting What You Want by Kathy Love and am almost done with it. Next up is The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheevers by Julia Quinn. I’ve got a stack of books ready to be read…wish I could get to them soon.
I’ve lost 50 pounds since January. I’m still not where I want to be, but I’m close. My big thing was to be the same size as my sister by the wedding ~ she helped out by getting pregnant, so woo-hoo 🙂
April 22, I noticed a bulge at the top of my rib cage. We thought it was just a twisted muscle, so I didn’t really think too much about it….but almost 2 months later it was still there so I went to the doctor. Doctor scheduled a CT scan, but it didn’t really show anything as far as my ribs were concerned ~ doctor thought I’d fractured my top 4 ribs and the bulge was just scar tissue. I’ve never fractured a rib in my life ~ at least not to my knowledge. Anyway, the CT scan also showed some spots on my spleen, so she scheduled me an appointment with a surgeon. Surgeon says that my cartilige outside my ribcage is inflamed, but that should go away eventually. He also said I’ve never fractured a rib and would have known it if I had. I’m scheduled for another CT scan in October to check the spleen. If the spots change, I’ll have to have it removed ~ if the spots stay the same, we’ll continue monitoring.
I was in a car accident on my birthday (April 25) and ended up in the emergency room. Kid ran a red light and lucky me, he didn’t have insurance. This was easily the worst birthday ever. Luckily, I didn’t reinjure anything from the last accident, so the emergency room was the only doctor visit I had to do.
Kiddo, sister and I are headed to North Dakota next week for a family reunion. Kiddo has her driver’s permit, so will probably drive the whole way. We’re going to the library to get a couple of audio books for the trip.
Sorry I haven’t been posting, but since I haven’t reading I didn’t want to just post about nothing. Hopefully this funk goes away ~ I want to attack these stacks!
