Good Morning! I am having a good day. Feeling stronger than I usually do lately. I saw my gastroenterologist yesterday. It is his opinion that I am still being affected by the cryptosporidium. He has given me another round of the antibiotic, to be taken for a full ten days. He said sometimes it is just really difficult to get rid of. He also told me he is working on becoming certified as a bariatric physician. In another 6 months he will be in a position to help me with weight loss. I had asked him about the lap-band surgery. He thinks we should try some less invasive weight-loss helps before considering surgery. I don’t meet the required 100 pounds or more above desired weight that is one criteria for having the surgery. I would like to avoid any further surgeries for the rest of my life if possible. I’ve had more than my allotted quota of surgical proceedures already.
Today I am going to spend the day with my favorite cousin. We always laugh a lot when we get together. I’m going to show her how to set up a spreadsheet then we’re going out for lunch and maybe some shopping. It is my brother-in-law’s birthday so I’m going to a candy shop to get him some cherry chocolates. Then we may check out the dress shop, too. It’s gonna be fun!
