HYC check in

Weight is "weigh" up. :-P Haven't been sleeping well and that always shows on the scale for me. Plus, I'm not too crazy about this "adding salt" idea. Argh.

Today was the ultrasound of my ovaries and my mammogram. I was surprised that the ultrasound was INternal as well as external! The mammogram showed multiple cysts, as expected. The tech was really wonderful. She showed them all to me (at least 6 in each breast) and I've never had a tech do that for me. Then she said not to bother redressing since they would probably want an ultrasound done. I told her I'd mentioned to the gal who did my pelvic ultrasound to keep the machine warmed up because I'd be back. :-D So on the 20th I have an appointment to get the cysts aspirated. The doctor said he was willing to do as many as I could tolerate at one time or just do one side at a time if I preferred that.

We've got most of dd's stuff packed up and tomorrow is moving day. We have rented a truck to make it easier and will put some of her stuff in storage for now. We did go see our chiropractor yesterday. She wasn't sure about the knee either. She advised icing and an epsom salt bath.

I found your blog through HYC. I just joined the challenge. Sounds like you are going through some rough times, medically speaking. Good luck with everything.

Thinking of you and hoping all is well. It makes all the difference in the world to have good medical care and tech with a good "bedside manner" Your weight is probably up due to adding salt and water retention. Try not to let it get to you. Hope you have a nice weekend!
