Without the Dark, We'd Never See the Stars...

I stopped weighing.  I get too emotional about it if I don't see a drop.  I am going to wait until my doctor appt to weigh again.  I go August 9.

My incisions are healed for the most part.  They are still pink and raised, but are no longer painful or itchy.  I only have minimal upper left sided discomfort due to the hernia repair. 

I have not had heart burn or vomiting or nausea in 19 days!  I've had bad heart burn since I was 19 and vomiting and nausea for the last year because of the hernia.  I was so miserable.  I literally ate an entire bottle of Tums every week.  It barely touched it.  Nexium controlled the heart burn the last 3 months, but not the vomiting and nausea.  I didn't even know what it was not to have that horrible burning sensation in my stomach, chest and throat.  It is NIIICE to be heart burn free!  No more vomiting! No more nausea!! My risk for esophageal cancer is less now.  YAY!

Everything in my life seems to be going according to plan.  I am just very impatient and want it all RIGHT NOW!  I want to be skinny NOW.  I want a relationship NOW.  I want to graduate school NOW.  I think you get the picture...
Patience... I need patience.


  1. Phil suffered from heartburn every day for several months until he started taking Prilosec every day. Now it is under control. His mother suffered from the same thing and she died of esophageal cancer and I do not want the same thing to happen to him.

  2. His poor mother!

    She probably had a hernia like I did. Phil may have one now also.

  3. I don't think he has a hernia. He has been A-OK since he started taking the Prilosec. I think we caught it in time. He's had 12 inches of his intestines removed, so that is always an issue.
