At the rate I am going?
I will have a “Super-Sized” version of my Friday wrap-up, no?
Last night I got word from a friend of mine that her son (who has been stationed over in the middle east) was injured in an explosion and is on his way to Germany before coming home to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. This chilled my blood, as my oldest son was in the Air Force and ended up at Walter Reed, also. Not a great feeling for a military mom, that’s for sure, so “NCMOMof3,” if you stumble across this by some chance, please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your son, who is such an amazing man! I just KNOW he is going to be alright. And this isn’t something that moms imagine for their babies. 😦
Alright, I wanted to send a shout-out to my girl, Claire, who is the power house behind “I’ve Been There, Claire.” She was kind enough, a couple of weeks ago, to send me a graphic that I LOVE, but was kind of superstitious to post before I hit my 30 day no-nicotine mark. I’m past that now, by a few days and think that I am good to go, so I really have to share this with y’all! I have mad love for my girlfriends (and guy-friends) in the blogosphere. I didn’t want to jinx anything by posting prematurely, and I am just tickled to know someone would take a little time to create and send something in my honor. I am going to find a way to use my widgets to post this in my sidebar!!!! 🙂
So, you all know that I contacted my surgeon on Monday (or maybe it was Tuesday) to let him know that yes, I’ve been 30 days nicotine-free. They told me they were going to hit up our insurance company, and today I got a call back. I have to go back to the surgeon’s office for a re-evaluation so that he can write a “medical necessity” letter to go to my insurance people. This appointment is two weeks from now. I’m still on it, but a little disappointed that it’s two weeks for the second look at the girls. 😦 Then you figure a week or two for approval and then another week or two to get it scheduled. That puts surgery first part of June, smack dab in the middle of swim season. But hey. Maybe I will look super cute in a suit by August, huh? I should have started this ball rolling in January. 😦 But hey…I WILL be adorable by fall, if nothing else.
And I’ve decided it’s off to the gym on Monday afternoon. I was going to start today, but was so excited to get home to find my “Let’s Pretend This Didn’t Happen” from B&N that I pre-ordered, and it didn’t end up on my front porch, today, either. *grumble* and stuff.
I have also started a 30 day trial of “Sensa,” that stuff you sprinkle on your for that is supposed to inhibit one’s appetite. We shall see if that is going to work. Y’all know I love my food, especially now that I can taste it. 🙂
I reckon that’s all I’ve got for now, so Until Next Time!
