Up date on Me..
I had three appointments yesterday. The morning appointment was with an eye doctor. He can just examin and then recommend that you go to someone else. I'll be going to Duke Medical in Jan for a consult on my eyes but it looks like I will have to have surgury on my right eye. I don't know anything about my left eye. I can't see much out of it and when I was doing to eye chart, I couldn't even tell that the largest letter was an E until she held a chart much closer to my face. All I could see was a white blur. Jerry got to the eye doctors about 1 pm and my next appointment wasn't until 1 45. That one was a dye contrast CAT Scan on my kidneys. Because of the dye, I'm to not take my Metformin until I see the doctor again. From there was a quick trip down a different hall and the ultrasound on my thyroid gland was done. Of course, those giving the tests can't tell you any thing at all. ;I see the two doctors Monday afternoon. In the mean time, I am trying to not worry about what I may hear.
On top of all that, I have a head cold. constant cough. and when I cough, I wee, just a little bit... and with the Kidney stones, I'm to drink lots of water.. the dye needs to be washed out of my system as well, so more water. Yikes. I'm beginning to think I slosh when I walk. The head cold finally "broke" this morning and the post nasel drip has stopped. I'm not sure what is safe to take and what is not. I did take a decongestant last night, it didn't help much. I've taken a couple of naproxen sodium. I have percaset and Oxie codon (spelling?) for the pain in the kidneys but I don't want to take any thing that strong unless I really need to.
I've lost some weight. yesterday, I stepped on the scale and I'm down to 286. I have met my goal of ending the year weighing less than I started the year.
