Hi Karri
I'm in Galesburg, too. I'm having surgery this Wednesday. Good to hear you've done well. Maybe I'll see you at support group sometime. :wink_smile:

I checked my messages about 8:00 this morning, then headed out about 9:30 so I didn't get your message. No one else showed up. I kept thinking that I went to the wrong place. I waited until noon, then ordered some cheese soup and had a couple of crackers. Since I was so close, I decided to go to the Riverboat and throw away some money.

On Monday I got my second fill and actually now know what "restriction" is. Hopefully I can begin to lose some weight.

Hi Guys,
Sorry I had every intention of coming to Morton but plans changed and I was in Bloomington when I should have been in Morton!! :tongue2: Just wondering how everyone was getting along. I had another fill on Thursday and I am now at 2.8CC. This feels like it's about right, although I have to remember not to take a large drink of water in the AM with my dry mouth. OUCH YIKES!! The morning starts out slow and then I am able to have a little more at lunch and then a small supper so that just might work. Girls, I am really struggling with that bad vein in my leg and am headed to the surgeon again on Friday to see about when we can do surgery. The whole superficial vein is just hardening and clotting here and there and it is inflammed and sore!! My mobility and lifestyle has taken a hit and I am more sedentary than I had been = less exercise= less wt. loss. The doctor seems to think that I am a good candidate for the laser method and so I will be more mobile after the procedure. Keep your fingers crossed........I just want it fixed so that I can ride my bike and get moving again. I have a few more pounds to get rid of to get to my mile marker and I want it gone. Let me know how you are all doing. Happy Summer!!
