doctor day weight day

Monday, July 06, 2015

Well friends, it has been 2 weeks since I blogged.
The reason, none really, just been a little busier lately and not getting on here that much.
And probably out of shame that I have slacked so badly over the last two weeks.
It started around Fathers Day.
I cooked enough for an army and my dad was sick and in the hospital, so he couldnt have solid food, then by the second or third day, he was NPO and so by the time he was able to eat again it was long gone.
Honey ate some, and took some to his dad.
I should have made up plates and taken it to some dad friends like my brother and bro in law.
As we all know, if if's and buts were candy and ate alot too much.
That seemed to set off a firestorm.
I was eating way too many calories, and getting way too little exercise.
And I was defintely eating foods that SP would ban me for lol.
However, today I went to the doctor and I had not gained any weight.
I was even steven.
Which I have to say was a relief. I have been avoiding the scale and was sure it was going to be bad.
So, I came home determined to get lined back out.
No more snacking and no more junk food, pizza, ice cream, sweet tea. Sweet sassy!!!
Putting it in writing makes me wonder if the doctors scale was broken!!!
In related news. I have a small lesion like something or other coming up on the upper abdomen.
Near my rib area about 2 inches below the center of my breasts.
It has been there for a long time, I always assumed it was a skin tag coming thru or maybe some kind of mole.
It always just felt somewhat solid, kinda hard but not painful or bothersome.
It never changed so I ignored it.
Back in March it began to get sore and one day popped up like a pimple or a boil.
I nursed it with hot compresses and antibiotic ointment.
After a week or so it just healed and went back to the way it was. Except now it has a cover or it like that of a blister, not sore, but like a soft covering.

Now in the last few days it is getting sore again and very discolored. dark purplish and while it has no head like a boil or pimple, it is tender to the touch and I can feel something sharp under the skin.
My belief is that is is a suture working its way out from surgery some years ago.
I know it sounds crazy, but I have read of these things happening 10 years after surgery.
I always felt like thats what it was.
Guess I should have had that checked out along time ago.
So, I had planned to stop and do a little shopping, but I was in there so long, I just came right home and did a little housework.
I sure hope everyone had a really good weekend and their 4th was both safe and festive.
It rained here, it was like Russian roulette, will it rain, wont it, oh look rain, no it quit.
It has been that way pretty much for a week.

    I hope the doctor is able to figure out what's going on with that lesion. Sounds mysterious.... I hope an alien baby doesn't burst out of your abdomen! That would be a horrible way to lose more weight! LOL

    Congrats on the Even Steven!

    I'm glad the visit to the doctor was better than expected. However, do that the bump checked out.

    I can definitely relate to slacking in connection with a loved one's health issues. That's what kept me away from here for a week, then a month, then almost a year.... Anyway, glad you're back, and I'm really hoping your doc looked at that spot!
