Wednesday weigh-in

Finally after 2 weeks i lost 1 pound...down 34 pounds.. This is taking alot longer than i thought. I could be doing a bit more to help, but dang it, some days are harder than others. I think i am doing pretty good for someone that eats because they are stressed. With my daughter being so sick, with no apparent reasons that they can find yet. No, nothing to be stressed about!

Amber went to the gastro doctor on Friday and we set up an appt. for testing her gallbladder for this friday. I hope it shows something, the not knowing what is wrong is what is killing both of us. In the meantime the doctor prescribed 2 more medicines....when i got them and read the side effects I about blew a nut!!! One of them says "may cause tardive Dyskinesia" I'm not giving my daughter that and we still don't know what is really wrong with her are you crazy, she does not need twitches on top of everything else...Dumb doctor.....

Anyhoo I am still giving her the prevacid and it helps for the most part the puking is few and far between...but still there, enough to be a nuisance. The doctor told me that after this test, if it doesn't show anything, he is at a loss...Amber mentioned to him that she has started to have headaches and he says she may have a neurological thing called abdominal migraines ...same kind of symtoms, but says it only last like 1 to 3 days....this has been going on for over a month!!

That's pretty much where everything stands at the moment, hoping things start showing the light of day....

Later peeps!

if you want to know.

I've been on vacation so I was not able to weigh myself this past Wednesday. But today i had to stop by my job and pay on some bills and get some prescriptions so I stopped by my favorite scale. It showed that I had lost 3 pounds since being gone from work! 33 pounds gone!!! 2 more pounds and I hit a major milestone for myself!

Amber went to have the test with the scope down her throat on Wednesday. They did not find anything, no hernia, no ulcer's, but they did some biopsies to see if there is any kind of bug in her stomach. I don't think they are going to find anything. I am still thinking her gallbladder...every syptom fits...even the symptom that attacks happen more at night...she does puke more during the night...seems like more tests and it's going to take even longer!!! Poor girl...I'm just glad it's not as often.

She still is puking, but not really food or drink, more like a thick mucus, still belching like crazy, she still has pain on her right side. This sucks, the not knowing! If this was their kid they would be all over it!! The prevacid ain't doing anything much to help.

In other news I went out with a friend of mine to a couple places i have never been before. I went to Memphis Smoke which had a blues band playing, it's a type of bar and grill was not all that bad. But realized another friend of ours had to be in the neighborhood and decided to drop by his stomping grounds and say hello. We went to Pronto's in Royal Oak, those that don't know it's a male gay bar. It was interesting, but all the guys made us feel comfortable. Had a few drinks with our buddy, we have known him for 30 years!! we were in 5th grade together. And yes we all believed he was gay even back then, but now he is totally open about it! Still love him just the same!! Wished my best friend could have been there to see him, we all hung out during high school together. pity.

Saturday we have plans to go to the Detroit Zoo, hope the weather is as good as they are predicting, it really has put a damper to my vacation.
anyhoo, other than that it's been housework and spending some much needed time to relax.
I bought some yarn to start a new project but I have been so busy that i have not even started it.

Later all, hope you have a great weekend!

We did go to the Detroit Institute of Arts on Wednesday after Amber's procedure. had a wonderful time. I had not been there since i was like 19 years old...I had forgotten how big and wonderful it was! I think my kids were bored! But it was something to do on such a rainy day.

I'm having a great vacation so far! Yesterday was the trip to the doctor for Amber, He really thinks it's gerd but he is supposed to scope her throat and stomach on Wednesday. He gave her a better acid reducer called prevacid and gave her a diet that no teenager is going to follow. We will see what happens with that.

After seeing the doctor, it was a gorgeous day out and thought let's go to the zoo...Man, everyone had that we changed ours and went downtown to the Detroit Historical Museum, I have not been there that I could remember and I had a wonderful time...It was so interesting! Glad that plans did change..

I told Amber that we will do the zoo sometime this week when people are working, it was too crazy!! Plus we have plans to go and watch the new "Clash of the Titans" movie and maybe visit the Detroit Institute of Arts. Loving my vacation!!!
