Oh the pain--- Cailleach strikes again!!!

Stupid band anyway!! 

My band has been tight but bearable until yesterday, when the pain got SO bad.... my back felt as awful as it did when I had kidney stones. It has never hurt that bad before.  But, I feel so blessed -- my nurse is really an angel.  

The clinic closes at 2 on Fridays and there was no way I could make the two-hour trip down there before closing. I called her to see if I could even get some Lortab to get me through the weekend (it was THAT much pain!) and before I could even ask, she said she would wait for me, just to come anyway.  I really love her!!! 

So... my sweet husband dropped what he was doing and drove me to the Big City, and Vivienne removed .75 ccs from my band.

I am so discouraged, because my weight is finally going down again.  But I am so so relieved... that pain was so unbearable. 

Rulon Gardner from Biggest Loser will be speaking at my gym in 10 days.  I would love to hear him speak, but it is also part of a weight loss seminar and I am sure the gym will be pushing their weight loss products, so I am not sure I will go. 

My oldest daughter turned 18 yesterday...... makes me sad.  I miss my little girls...... none of them are tiny anymore.... my "baby" is going to be 8 this year. And this morning, I woke up to the littlest in a rage... the two sisters in the middle are being "mean" to her and making her feel left out.... while the oldest sister is being mean and going away to college. Poor girl... I feel for her, but I am not in the mood for her temper tantrums today.  Girl has a serious anger problem that we have been working on for years.... but today the momma is just worn out. 

I would love to bury my head in the sand today... or hide in my cave with a good book.... but I have committed to taking daughters up to the house today.  DD#3 is excited... she gets to tear the sheetrock out of her bedroom so it can be redone.. and DD#2 is getting a new wall in her room. 

So..... I am headed for a soak in the tub.... maybe that will help me deal with the chaos a little better today.


  1. Lets hope the unfill doesn't derail all your good work to date :o)

    P.S. I hope the girls settle down soon for you - brings back fond memories of me and my sister fitting all the time :p

  2. Really hope that the unfill works out for you.
    I hear you on angry children, big sigh.
