Tomorrow is Fill #3 !! Yipee! :)

 
This is how I feel right now!  Stealing someone's barbecue!!!  Animals are devious.  Restriction, oh Restriction, where fore art thou Restriction?  What do you think, could this be the Fill that does it?  Nah!!!

Hey Ya'll,

Just a short post to say that we are leaving tomorrow after lunch to drive over the Sierra's to Reno for my 3rd Fill appointment.  We will be staying until Friday morning, so Walt can spend some time with his Mom again.  But don't you worry, I am taking my handy dandy Crochet materials to keep myself occupied during the drive over again!!

I currently have 4 cc's (which I had to beg to get the last time) in a 10 cc Band, and the PA told me that from the 3rd Fill on, the most I could get would be .5 cc's at a time!!  I have absolutely no Restriction whatsoever!  I doubt very highly that I will succeed, but I am going to attempt to beg her for one more Fill of 1 cc.  Otherwise I won't reach any Restriction for at least another 1.5-3 months, if I am lucky!

Anyhoo, I am sorry to whine again!  I better get off for now, still have things to do before I can go to bed.  I will post what I end up with Wednesday evening after my appointment.  But I am sure that you already can guess what I get.  LOL!  Till next time....

Aloha My Friends  :)

Safe drive. And what better place to whine than on your blog. We'll always listen. Gilly (from http://somethingsomethingsomethingfatchick.blogspot.com/ ) posted almost the same sentiments about restriction. Hope it comes soon.
HA HA-my verification word was gethine (get thin!)

Good Luck!!! Just in case you didn't notice yet I nominated you for an award. Check out my blog for details.

Have a safe trip and I hope this .5 cc's will do it for you. It's amazing what a small amount can do sometimes. :)

Ugh. I hope you get more than .5 cc's. That is so ridiculous, and honestly, if she doesn't do it this time, I might ask to see the surgeon before I leave. You are having to drive quite the distance to get what I would consider sub-standard fills. I understand her wanting to take it easy as you have farther to go to get an unfill. But you also have farther to go to get fills...and most people don't tend to get to a reasonable restriction with that size band until they're at ~7, seems to me. I'd think she could at least do 1cc! And I'd basically demand it...nicely...but demand nevertheless. Especially since her philosophy is so different than the surgeon's. I suspect he doesn't even really know...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog the other day. So here is my response to that...

I'm from Fontana. So I know exactly where the San Bernardino/Riverside area is. :)

I mentioned I have an uncle in Grass Valley. Technically he is in Nevada City. But I also have an aunt in the Sac area - she's in Citrus Heights. Are you close to Citrus Heights?

Re: the time off work issue, I don't have a physically demanding job but I do have a brain intense job. If I make a bad decision because I'm in a fog due to just not feeling well, I can waste, literally, millions of dollars worth of computer time. Computer time is effectively our production time...so it could mean quite a loss. My boss is working with me to ensure I won't be set up to create such messes...but...sitting here for eight hours a day in one spot can be painful when I feel good. I just don't see that it's worth pushing it...but I will have to talk to my surgeon on this one.

I really enjoyed reading your blog over the weekend. I am now up to date and will stay that way...I hope. :) I'm not following nearly the amount of blogs you are, but I can see that it might get hard some times to stay current!

Good luck and I hope this puts you near where you want to be :-)

Michelle said...

Good luck I hope you get your wish and get the 1 cc adjustment...

Jenny said...

I hope you get more than .5 that seems so low, but I guess its better than having to get unfilled. Good Luck!

Debi said...

Thanks everyone! I will definitely attempt to get at least a 1 cc Fill tomorrow! I will let you know tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Tracy (TJ), thank you for the Beautiful Blogger nomination! And thanks for letting me know in your comments. Because, I am sooo far behind in reading blogs, that it may have been a really longgg time before I would have seen it!!

Now I have to worry about trying to figure out who hasn't already been nominated to nominate myself!! LOL Oh well, there are plenty of great blogger's out there, it will just be hard to nominate someone that hasn't been nominated! And I am not sure that I will be able to tell for sure that they hadn't been nominated!

LDswims, thank you for your comments and I responded to some of your comments on your blog as I wasn't sure that you would come back to see if I responded to you. I will take your advice and ask to see if we could ask the Surgeon if she doesn't want to do 1 cc. Maybe that will sway her!! But I doubt it.
