1. I am going back to work on Monday! With some restriction. I already work part time, so my doctor was comfortable with me working reduced hours Monday thru Wednesday and then playing Thursday by ear.

2. I had my band refilled today. My NP put 5 cc in my 11 cc band. Today I'm on full liquids and tomorrow I'm on softs.

3. I was surprised to see that I had a 3 lb loss today on their scale!! I have had no restriction whatsoever in my band (my nutritionist called it a bandcation). I basically told them I really just concentrated on healing, sleeping and not thinking about eating.

4. So what does this mean now? A total reboot for me and my best bud the lap band. We are going to back to the way things "use" to be like at the beginning. Making sure I keep track of my foods (haven't done this in quite some time), drinking my water and eating the right things!!

5. Below is a pic of the newest plan they are passing out at my clinic. They have me eating the 5-6 ounce plan for a couple of weeks and then I can move to the 7-8 ounce plan after my next visit.

6. I have one tiny hiccup with my hysterectomy which my doctor is keeping an eye on. I go back for follow up #3 in a month.

7. We got some awesome news regarding my son's school situation for next year which comes with pros and cons like everything. He will be in a room that is going to be awesome for him ASD wise!!!

8. Waiting for report cards to come out but I anticipate another honor roll for our girl. Do you know how well she's done his year?? Only grade not on the honor roll? A C+ in science because they did chemistry!!!

9. Today's fill kinda hurt. I'm not gonna lie. It had to go through a scar she said from another puncture. I'm thinking its the same spot she took the fluid from a month ago.

10. The rain has been hard and almost non stop here. Guess what that means? Yep, our roof is leaking. We have a bucket and garbage can in our kitchen to prove it. Two estimates in two days.


  1. It's been raining for days here too! Blech.

  2. Happy to hear that the school situation is looking good...I'm sure that brings you some comfort!

  3. Crazy rain here this morning! I'm glad you had a successful "bandcation" (hee!) and that things are looking up!

  4. Glad to hear you were released for light duty! Glad you are on the mend!
