HYC check in

First, I will announce that Jen at Priorfatgirl is having a lotion giveaway. Those of us living in Colorado can NEVER have too much lotion! ;-)

Weight is slowly coming back down. Today was my cyst aspiration appointment. Oh, joy. The juicy details - 3 cysts of 12, 11 and 6ccs of fluid removed from the right breast; 2 cysts of 6 and 4ccs removed fm the left. (Wonder what kind of weight loss that will show! LOL) Yeah, I know, TMI! ;-) There were several other smaller ones that weren't worth the discomfort of continuing. So I've been a little sore and tired all day and I had to take my son to Denver to see the hematologist in the afternoon. I took the day off from exercise! Yesterday I did cardio and weight-lifting. (Lynn, for my routine, I use one from The Abs Diet for Women book. It has a set of 12 different moves and I usually do 2 sets of 15 reps.)

Last week we had a bit of fun when Kendall got up and was bleeding quite profusely from his mediport site. We had to remove the needle and put pressure on it for a while. I was glad we had the hematology app't this week. His INR level may be off because he ran out of his multivitamins with high levels of K and has been without for a couple of weeks. I hadn't thought about that connection but it makes sense. So we'll alter his coumadin dosage until the INR levels back out.

So glad I don't have ANY appointments for tomorrow or Thursday. We have a snowstorm moving in so it's a good time to just stay home! Maybe I'll get a chance to check up on my fellow health bloggers. ;-)

OH my that sounds painful! Glad it's over! You don't have to go through that again...right?
Thanks...will check out the book...unless you want to just come over here and tell me what to do!
The Lord is with you right now, lifting you up, giving you strength! Always praying!
Isaiah 40:27-31 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Certainly doesn't sound like a good time!
Snow storms are a pain in the butt for sure, but I always miss being housed up with a cup of hot chocolate and using it as an excuse to read for fun! OH, and don't forget snuggled on the couch in front of the fire! Maybe it's that it used to mean snow days? lol. Either way, I hope you stay warm and dry!

Now find your afghan, heat up the fireplace, pour a nice hot drink, and enjoy being housebound by the weather. :)
