Hi Denise, to end my day I went for my 6 month check with the lung doctor. When he asked the last time I took my rescue inhaler I had to tell him about
the funeral and then he asked if my friend was young and I said I thought 46 was too young and boy I just about
started crying. The doc also told me I looked different so I told him yes I had lost 25 since last year and he said it really showed in my face as soon as he looked at me. He asked how I did it and asked if I had a goal weight in mind. I told him at this point my goal is to be under 200 by next year so that would be another 25. He seemed to think that was good. He asked about
my stomach and said maybe I should go to Madison or Mayo clinic for it. I told him I had already told the stomach doctor no to that. He asked why and I said I just didn't have the time to take off of work for that because as it was I was using vacation for my hand surgery. He said my lungs sound awesome. So that was good news. And I don't have to go back for a year now unless I have problems. He thought the pics of my grandkids on my hand bag were really cute. I went to the gift shop after my appointment and treated myself to a couple of bracelets and a really pretty name tag holder to replace the really ugly blue strap they gave me at work for mine. Well I'm going to go lay down while my hand isn't itching yet again. Barb
