I went in for my B12 shot yesterday. I skipped it last week. DUH...no wonder I've been a sloth. I feel a bit more human now!!!
On Wednesday Banding and beyond posted about her second fill. She included a YouTube clip (not her) of a fill. So I asked Chris if he would like to see what it looked like when I get a fill. I hadn't seen the clip yet and I assumed that all fills were created equal.
**Disclaimer** If you are newly banded and have never had a fill, I wouldn't watch this clip. Unless you are a sadist. OMG. If any of you have similar fill experiences, I am SORRY!!! This completely grossed me out!! I'm not sure I would have gone through with the surgery at all!!
My fills look something like this: Dr. Spiegel and a nurse walk in (I thought it was common protocol for your surgeon to give the fills, but I've learned in blogland that often this is not the case), a little chit chat, then I lay back, put my arms above my head, he feels for the port, deadens it (I think - I never look, but I will be watching Monday), inserts the mile-long needle, fills me up and wam-o, I'm done!! It takes about the same amount of time it took for the deadening in the video. I then sit in the waiting room for 15 minutes sipping my water to make sure I'm not too tight. Then I'm out the door. Easy peasy.
Also, EVERY time I go in I do the fluoroscope. Just a swig of barium and a quick peek to make sure everything is ok. I also plan on taking a picture of my insides Monday if they will let me. I think it's super duper cool.
Daddy update: all blood levels are in normal range!!! They upped his BP meds (yesterday's BP was 190/110 in the dr. office) and he has to stop eating all the crap he snacks on. Other than that, all is well. What a relief!!
I saw a new low on the scale this morning!!! But, I'm going to keep it under wraps and see if it sticks around for the Sunday weigh-in. I can't believe the scale moved because I haven't worked out since last Friday.
I'm a TV junky. During the school year there are only a handful of shows I watch. Grey's Anatomy is numero uno...then a handful of sitcoms and the Discovery Channel.
Any of you ladies watch Roseanne's Nuts?? I thought it would be stupid but I caught myself watching last night. And I literally LOLed!!!
Another one of my faves is Swamp People!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! Next Friday I'm going to a meet and greet with 5 of the cast members!!! I'm so excited!!! (If you watch, my dad could be Troy Landry's brother!!)
Have a fan-tab-ulous Friday!!!!
