Life Update

Happy Saturday everyone!  And, Happy (early) Halloween! 

Here are some of the updates that have went down over the last couple days.

Thursday~Went to get my fill and it went great.  Got the other 1cc that I wanted since that was the other half of what was drained when I had my back surgery.  So far so good.  It was my sweetspot before, but I don't know if it is now.  I still seem to be able to eat more than I like and don't have as much restriction as I would like.  But, as we all know, fills sometimes take a few days to kick in.  Here's to hoping that I'm going to gain a little more restriction in the next few days.  If not, they said I could come back and get another microfill if I felt I needed it.  I'm going to see how Thanksgiving goes and if I don't have my prefered restriction by then, I'll go back. 

I got to meet a great friend of mine that I'd helped through this process and she just recently had gastric bypass and is doing great.  She had a few issues in the beginning with a lot of pain and some spasms, and had to spend a few extra days in the hospital because of it.  But she's home now and doing much better.

My father in law had to put his dog to sleep also on Thursday, he was 19, but it was still pretty rough.  But, at least he lived a good long life.  Hubby and I went to visit my father in a law a few days ago and the dog didn't seem like he was doing well.  I asked him if he'd taken him to the vet and had him checked out, and he said that he did and as long as the dog was eating he was fine.  Ok then.  We took that as a good sign.  Well, a couple of days later he was showing some signs that he was suffering, so my father in law decided to have him put to sleep. 

Another friend of mine's aunt passed away, this was also Thursday.  And I was out of town for all of it.  It was kinda crazy.  From the time I woke up pretty much till the time I went to bed I was getting texts and phonecalls.  I'm glad that my family depends on me though.  It's great to feel needed and know that my family and friends can come to me for support. 

On top of all this I was worried about hubby being home by himself because of his leg.  I was gone for just a little over 24 hours so I figured he could handle it, but stranger things have been known to happen.  Comes to find out, he was fine left to his own devices.  :)

So, Thursday when I got home I put on my comfy clothes and (tried to) watch Grey's and Private Practice.  Well, I made it about halfway through Grey's and that's all I remember.  Fell alseep.  Hubby woke me up after Private Practice and sent me to bed. 

Friday~I had my 90 day follow up for my back surgery.  Doc told me I was perfect, I told him that I was aware of that, but wanted to know what was going on with my back.  :)  So, anyway, doc said everything is textbook, but wants to see me in three more months.  Then he's going to give me the green light to start exercising again (thank goodness) as well as starting to try to have a baby.  Should be exciting.

Took hubby to the doc for his leg and they took him off work for another week, at least.  We're also going to an orthopaedic surgeon on Wednesday.  He's able to walk on it a little more now during the day, but is having difficulty at night still.  It's still pretty swolen and the part that is swolen is hard.  Which concerns me.  The doc didn't see anything disturbing on his MRI, we asked him some questions and then I asked if we could see an ortho, which hubby didn't want to do, but I don't care.  :)  I would rather be out the co pay for that, then have him go back to work too soon and do more damage, or make temporary damage permanent. 

There was the option of sending him back to work, but on light duty.  Which isn't an option.  Hubby works really hard and doesn't really know what light duty is.  His boss told him the same thing, that it's not an option, cuz she can't afford to pay me to stand over him, and doesn't think he could do it. 

Office Depot is really being very, very supportive about this.  Which eases our minds a lot.  I would hate to have him get hurt and use up all his paid time off, only to go back to work to find out he's been let go.  Not only would I be UBER PISSED, we would also be pretty screwed. 

Then yesterday evening I spent the evening with my bestie and we embarrassed our other halves by sharing knowledge, and laughed our asses off, at them and other things.  Good times.

Today~should be cleaning house, but I'm not.  Watching the Mizzou/Nebraska game and hoping Mizzou wins.  That's about all I've got for today my friends.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy posting.

Hopefully your fill kicks in to give you some more restriction. I personally haven't had this happen yet - usually I feel fairly good restriction the week after my fill, but then it goes away. Going in for another fill on Monday and hoping to finally get to my sweet spot. Tell hubby to take it easy. Glad you were able to have some laughs with your friend.
