  1. Just logged into my insurance and found out I'm approved! Yes!!!!!!

  2. Just stumbled across this and had to think of BP immediately. I know this is something people simply don't want to think, let alone talk about but it's one of the reasons I'm limiting time on here.

  3. Today is the two year anniversary of my surgery. 🎉 I’ve made lots of changes around what I eat & when I eat & am way more aware of why I eat. Still not a regular exerciser but have much more general energy than I did before. So glad I woke up that morning & said enough & made the appointment with my doctor. I’m grateful I had a supportive GP, an excellent surgeon & a caring medical team that manages my post surgical follow ups. I’m also thankful of the  support & encouragement I’ve had from family & friends along the way. I love my life.

  6. I got my date, Feb 2.  I am so excited. 

  7. I'm a month post op and have lost 17lbs. Is that ok I feel like I should of lost more....... feeling concerned....

  8. Feeling pretty good after surgery! Came home 29 hours after admittance for pre-op! Doing ok on sipping water, some how I keep swallowing air with it and end up burping. Not sure how that’s happening. And I hate that little breathing tube tool they give you because it hurts a little too much. But I am going to do it every waking hour, 10 times, for the next two weeks (instructions I was given). 

  9. Pre-admission testing tomorrow! Surgery 12/30! Getting so close!

  10. I need to put things into boxes because I'm moving on Tuesday.

    I need to study because I need to be prepared for exam.

    Feels like panic-ping-pong somehow.

  11. Day one of pre op diet, two weeks before surgery.  I'm excited to start,  and know that this is a fundamental lifestyle change. 

    On 30 December 2019 I gave up a heavy drinking habit for 30 years.  No regrets, only successes; even through the turmoil of 2020 ☠💪💣💥

    2021 will be the year I regain my physical and mental health, and the start of the rest of my life.  To say I am a determined person is an understatement.  One day I want to writea book just for my family.  It will make for a lot of laughs, many tears, and a lot of enlightenment as to why I am the way I am.  I've been on a blog called Living Sober all year, and I have decided to extract all my posts for the last 12 months and read iver them again during my post surgery recovery time.  It will reassure me I am ok, I can (and must) do this.

    Happy day 1 to you from me x

  12. The local medical association approved my papers!

    Just got the information yesterday evening when checking my mailbox. I guess the exam will be in January. They have to tell me the exact date at least two weeks in advance.

  14. Infection rates are soaring. I was a contact person again (and a fellow colleague who assisted me) and now we've gotten some sheet where we have to take note of any symptoms and we have to take our temp every day for 14 days. Luckily so far we're both alright.

    I guess this will be the new norm until we have a test fast enough so patients without symptoms can be isolated sooner.

      Wow, again? Hopefully it doesn't affect you directly.

  15. Test yesterday was negative. So we now have a patient with symptoms of a respiratory tract infection, a negative-positive-negative test constellation and nobody seems to really know how to proceed further from there and referred to the public health department. 

    🙄

  16. Err, we have COVID positive people in the department, me being one of them. I received a call from the lab 10 min before I planned leaving and they said that I had a "slightly positive test". Whatever that means. My first test on Tuesday was negative.

    Anyway, 14 d of quarantine for me. So far a slightly sore throat that I only notice in the evening hours and a bit of a headache.

    *sigh*

      Create a thread! Perhaps someone can help you find resources in your new country or online. Threads reach more people than status updates

      Good Luck ♥️

  21. Someone please tell me it's not that weird getting bombed drinking coke zero with rum while looking at neuroradiology training cases at 9:30 PM.

    No? Yeah, well... 🧟‍♀️

      Not weird 😃

  23. GL, I feel like a hammer has hit me on the head. Sunday's 24 h shift was beyond awful and one day of recovery is not nearly enough. I hate that jet lag feeling I often have after these shifts. Everyone deals with it but I doubt something's going to change.

    I'm leaving at the end of December. No more of this **** after that. Time to bring in the new **** then though, lol.

      Wow 😮 cheers to moving on to bigger and better things
