Puppy Power

20 Feb

Two more days and I have two hospital appointments on different sides of my little country. First one is diabetic retinopathy screening, where they take photographs of the back of your eyes to see if there are any changes due to diabetes. I’m a little bit worried about this one.

Second one is in Swansea and I’m looking forward to this one a bit more, its an educational session for bariatric surgery. I should hopefully learn what is available and a little more about the procedure and whats involved. I’m rather excited, for a long time I never wanted to have surgery, I thought I could do this on my own. I lost seven and a half stone by myself (before putting it all and more back on) and thought I would be able to do it again. But I can’t. I have tried and tried, but it’s just not happening so I’ve conceded to the surgery. Since I first got online back in 2000 I have read hundreds of stories about people having surgery, so I understand the risks, there weren’t as many people back then doing it, or at least people weren’t blogging about it, because there wasn’t so many online, but now it’s all over. I think I am as prepared as I can be. I’ve never had surgery and only stayed in hospital overnight once. I know it’s a huge risk and something that cannot be changed once done, but I feel like I’m all out of options now, so I have accepted this and am even looking forward to it.

I know its not a miracle cure, I know it will be hard work and painful, and while the surgery will reduce what I eat, it can’t change my way of thinking. There are so many ways around it and “cheating” as such, but I am going into this with my eyes wide open and I would like to think I wouldn’t make that mistake after all I will go though to try and make myself more healthy. I want this so bad right now, I’m hoping it wont be another two year wait.

Since I found out I was diabetic I have lost 11kg which I am happy about, although I don’t think I have lost anything this week, so feeling a bit disappointed, I had been quite ill during the week and didn’t get to the gym as much so that probably why, but I was hoping it would come off anyway with all the meds I am on. This will be week four with the Bydureon on Friday everything seems okay so far. I had a blood test this week and I just rang to find out the number as the doctor wants to see me, its 49, I think normal is 40, so it’s slightly over still, but last time was in the 60s, so it’s coming down (why they have a different system to the blood pricking machines I don’t know, just to confuse you I think!)

In different news on Saturday I’m going to get a new puppy! I’m so excited, we went to look at her two weeks ago, she was only 4 weeks then and as long as she is still eating okay by Saturday she will be mine! I’ve bought her loads of puppy toys, I can’t wait to get her, she is so adorable. Bichon Frise with a quarter Jack Russell, Fudge is getting a new sister to play with, shes not going to know whats hit her on the weekend!
