Fun Filled Week
First of all, I must tell you that I have lost the six pounds that I gained on our trip!! Yep, today when I got on the scales I was 170, which was where I was when we left. I was so happy that it came off relatively fast. I am now poised to go into the 160's. I only have to lose the 10 pounds I gained over the year end holidays last year that I was never able to lose thus far this year. I really need to get back there so I will be poised to get into the 150's. I am sure I will feel much better when I do. It has been quite a few years since I was 150.
What a busy week this far!! I hardly had a good rest before I had to start my rounds of doctors. I had to go to my retina specialist Monday morning. My eyes have been hurting me plus I think my vision is getting worse too, so she did the heavy duty pictures and that is not much fun, let me tell you. She had to inject me with something intravenously and then take the pictures behind my retinas. It really hurts to look into those bright lights and then afterwards I can't see normally for hours. Everything is pink and green, other colors too. She called my optometrist, who is a very close friend of ours, to make an appointment for the next morning to get my eyes tested again. Instead of asking me the questions, "which is better, this or this," which always confuses me, he had me put my newspaper in front of me to where I do my puzzles each morning. I do two crosswords, one cryptocrip and one sudoko. Then he just kept changing the lens until I could read everything clearly. I really think this time it will work! My distance glasses were fine and he didn't think I should have to wear glasses all day. I would hate that as I have never had to do that. I will see soon, maybe even Monday I'll get my new glasses.
Then Tuesday afternoon I had to get a mammogram, which is always unpleasant. She did a very comprehensive exam this time and took a bunch of pictures and told me I would have to come back in a few days to have some more pictures taken and possibly have another kind of test, all because I told her my left breast was extra tender and hurt sometimes. She told me something I found quite interesting. She said that almost always when one experienced cancer in a breast that it was the left one. Isn't that something?
I told Dick that today I didn't want to do anything at all today! I have to say that I haven't done a darned thing either. I've just rested the whole day and Dick has waited on me hand and foot. He's fixed all my meals, brought me whatever I needed and just totally let me rest. I have napped a lot too, so I must have been more worn out than I thought, because I never sleep during the day. I decided though that I'd better write something on my blog as I did say I was going to do it every Wednesday. Sue tells me that I should blog only when I feel like it. I'm afraid that I wouldn't do it at all any more, but I would hate not hearing from some of my favorite people. I really do feel like I have gotten to know the few people that comment on my blogs. I have never really wanted more. I just love the ten or twelve that I do have.
Dick had to go to church to do some kind of report for the stake, so it is very quiet right now. I guess I won't be posting any pictures, but I don't know what the heck I would post that would be relavent to what I've done this week, so it is probably just as well.
I just want you all to know that I am really doing pretty well and I'm looking forward to another good week. We are having a church get together at the Pike's this Saturday afternoon. I have to make a dessert. I am so glad as we haven't had a church party for so long. We have a new Bishop and I think we will be having more parties. I think it is important for people to socialize more. It's hard to visit with very may people on Sunday's.
Take care, everyone, I hope I will have more to report next week. Love to all...........
