I have a dirty great sty on my eye!!! I haven’t had one of these for years! I felt it getting bigger and bigger as I was driving home from Hobart yesterday and when I woke up this morning I couldn’t get it open until I sloshed it with water. Even my eyebrow bone is sore!!…and down the side of my nose….and in my cheek…..wahhhh It is bloody sore and I just want to scratch the shit out of it…..but I won’t…..and I also won’t rub a dirty old gold wedding ring on it or drink Essence of sarsparilla or any of the other old wives tales regarding stys. It will just have to run it’s course and hopefully it gets worse tomorrow (at least in how it looks) and I will use it as an excuse to leave work early!!! So….. I took a picture of it hoping to garner all the sympathy votes I can possibly get 🙂
I had my 2nd fill yesterday. That makes me 4.5ml in a 10ml band now. I had three in and he has whopped in another 1.5mls for me. Probably because I told him I felt absolutely no different to pre-banding and that I had tested eating rice, lettuce, fresh bread and the crutch out of low flying duck!!!….. Dr Dreamy was his usual dreamy self and so cheery for that end of the day! I don’t know how that man stays so positive and upbeat all the time! He was pleased with my weight loss and happy that I hadn’t had any problems….that is how it should be. BUT….perhaps more restriction would be the go?………..YA THINK!!???? I was up on that bed doing my half sit-up quicker than you can say…quarter pounder with chips and a thickshake!!!
I was back on the road by 5.45pm. It was a miserable trip back because my hip and back gave me curry all the way home……and……….my EYE was hurting!! Waaahhhhhhh I had to keep stopping every half hour or so and get out and shake my leg and stretch to relieve the pain. I don’t like taking anything when I have to drive, so I just had to suffer it. Oh well, think of all the incidental exercise shaking it like a mad woman on the side of the highway!! I stopped at a roadhouse after about two hours and got a skinny coffee and a piece of fish. There wasn’t much to choose from at that time of the day and fish seemed like the best option. I walked around and rang Ricky to let him know where I was and had a whinge to him about my EYE and my SORE HIP and my SORE BACK…..felt much better after that 🙂
So, remembering what Tracey told me I took a tiny bite of the fish and chewed and chewed and chewed until I was just plain bored……so I swallowed the sucker!! Nothing……so I had a more substantial bite…..still nothing. I was technically doing the wrong thing because I was drinking as well, BUT I really, really needed that caffiene hit!!! So, anyway, I hit the road again and just had a few nibbles of the fish while driving. I was full to the brim after only half of it. Yayyyy……restriction……even when I was drinking. It wasn’t even a very big piece of fish either.
So, I called into my sister’s place on the way because I had brought her a little present while I was browsing in Hobart. I got her a T-shirt with “I don’t really have A.D.D…….Oh, Look!! A bunny rabbit!!!” He, he….she loved it….and it really SUITS her 🙂 Called into the parents as well and wished them a good trip to Melbourne. They go over occassionally to see a couple of shows…..they are seeing Billy Elliott this time around and Karen is babysitting their dog, Alice. They are staying at the Langham again, so I put my order in for them to bring me back another bottle of their signature room spray…..divine!!! Ginger Flower…..I love spraying it onto the carpet after I have cleaned….yummmm
Today I walked the dogs and then came back and made some breakfast. I toasted 2 muffins. I split them in half …. so you end up with four pieces. I had grabbed a nice looking banana at the shop and intended on having that on top of them. Well, I managed to eat one and a half halves!! Normally, I could have eaten two muffins without a problem and be looking for more. Not this time….. I got a bit of pain because I think I ate too quickly to start with…..but it subsided pretty quickly. Then for lunch I toasted another two muffins…… a girl has to test these theories!! This time I put cottage cheese with chives on them……I managed two halves. The birds got the rest……….yaayyyy I feel like I did in the first two weeks after the operation. I haven’t been looking for food at all and I don’t feel hungry. I am making spaghetti bolognaise for tea tonight. Haven’t had that in ages and I will try a little bit for sure.
So, as far as this fill goes……it seems to be working this time and I can feel restriction. I hope it lasts!! Back to work for me tomorrow, so I will have to be careful what I eat there for a while. Might revert back to my soups for lunch at work…..safer that way 🙂 A little Christmas funny for you………………..
THURSDAY UPDATE……cause I KNOW you need to know 🙂
Well, had to get in the shower this morning and try and soak my eye open!! It is worse!!!! All down the side of my nose is swollen and around my cheek………..lovely! So, I got Ricky to take me up to casualty because I would need a doctor’s certificate for work and also some antibiotics. So that will teach me for joking about leaving work early today…..I have a certificate for today and tomorrow!! I have to take four of these tablets a day and he said they will make me “tired” and “wonky”……well, I could have worked……. I would be no different to any other day 🙂 He is concerned about the spreading infection…..no shit Sherlock!!!!…..so am I !! So, hopefully these tablets will do the trick. If not, I have to go back. It had better get better before Christmas…….I am not having happy family snaps taken around the Christmas table looking like the Elephant Woman ! This will be the only photo I put on here where I show you something getting bigger!!!…………. So….I’m off to hit the drugs and do some couch surfing:)
