    Sure! I liked the TV series "The Unit" (CBS) and the leader of the unit was codename Snakedoctor, played by Dennis Haysbert...(All State commercials). He was cool under pressure . My name here was also one of the code names for one of the members of the team. :ph34r:

    It is so good to see that everything has worked out for you. Determination. Dedication. That's what it's all about.
  10. sleep APNEA UPDATE... Went to my primary on Monday to check the numbers for diabetes and blood pressure. And got results back this morning. Here they are...couldn't have asked for better results Glucose 132; A1C 6.3; Diabetes under excellent control: don't need to restart meds. Bless the name of Jesus! My lipids: Cholesterol 166; (normal range less than 200); HDL cholesterol 56 (normal range greater than 40). LDL cholesterol 91; (Normal range less than 100). Triglycerides 95 (normal range less than 150). Doc wants me to reduce the Fat in my diet...(take it to around 20g or less a day - that's right around where my WLS doc wants it too, which is about 5g a meal (minus the 'snacking' of course ), sure hope the food still taste good. Hey numbers like these (that are foreign to me) I'll do it to bring the them down even more. Well - I still have Sleep Apnea but NOT as bad as I did Pre-Op so my Pulmonary doctor is encouraged that as more time passes I could be off (completely) the c-pap by early next year...YES! I still snore but not like I use to (whew). I don't frequent the bathroom like I use to, I'd go like EVERY 90 minuets. She would like it if I did not go at all during sleeping time - not too sure about that Doc, not with all the liquids (a half gallon minimum) we drink in a day. THE JOURNEY CONTIUES...

    Sleep Apnea - Gone....not

    A feeling I know all too well. I woke up this morning with dry mouth after having worn that mask all night long. I had use vaseline on my lips as well b/c they felt like Mojave desert. I am hoping that it goes away by early next yr. We'll see.

    Breast Or Breasts?

    chicken salad made with the breast is about the only way I eat it. I am not a fan of breast (chicken or turkey), so I mostly have chicken thighs, drumsticks, or wings. When you say "Breast or Breasts" you had to know you were bound to get the reaction (s) that you got. I was one of them. The things that make you go "Hmmm"
  15. That's great!! My tops were 32/34 and pants were 48/50 (in mens...the fit felt better). It will be so fantastic to shop for a lrg/xlrg tops. The simple thing of shopping for smaller sizes is monumental for us and 'no big deal' for others.
  16. I am 5'3 and top heavy so my tops were sizes from 24 ( on a good day), 34 on those worst ones. I will excited to just leave the 2's & 3's... My pants are now around 44-46 (mens b/c they feel & fit better), they were 48-52 so that is an improvement to this point....to be continued.
  17. It would be fabulous to ask for something that doesn't begin with a 2 or 3 ie 26 -34! Iam not sure what size it would be but 16-18 bottom and top don't sound too bad... Oh just the thought is motivating!! :wub:

    Lactose Intolerance ?

    I was before surgery and I still am. I to drink protein drinks that have no milk, lactose free, soy. My cheese is soy, and things like that. Hope this helps you and your hubby.
  19. Well went to see primary doctor and had blood drawn for the A1c test. My b/s levels have ranged between 77 & 117. Haven't gone over the 117 mark in about 2 1/2 months. Hopefully that's a good sign. I am about to go to spend the night in the hospital to find out if I no longer have to share my bed with a mask and a hose....alas C-pap machine. Gonna be 'wired' so the tech can monitor my every sound (oh joy ). Hopefully I can give them back their machine and wave bye-bye to it as I leave....sorta. Has anyone else had to do the sleep study to 'officially' be declared Sleep Apnea(less)? Plus, my primary said I only have to take my blood pressure meds for a while longer but not all the rest of those meds. My wallet thanked her a lot. I asked my doc's assitant if she'd take this for me. The Journey Began... The Journey Contiues...
