THE NEXT STEP.....


I remember this place well...Mazatlan...oh yea......

Hey Ya'll,

Well we are back home from seeing the Doctor about my Gallbladder Pain, from the other night.  He agreed that my symptoms definitely appear to be Gallbladder related.  He is setting up a CT Scan and I have to go in for some Blood Work tomorrow.  He said that my last Blood Work showed some signs of Gallbladder problems starting.  So he wants to see how it has changed since my last Blood Work in January as well as checking my Liver functions. 

He said that in the past, the preferred test for Gallbladder was Ultrasound.  But he said that now they believe it is best to have the CT Scan, as it can show the Organs in 3D, which will greatly help the Surgeon if Surgery is called for.  Which makes me wonder if he is thinking that Surgery will be the eventual outcome.....?

And now, to switch gears TOTALLY....have you ever kept something for later consumption as a treat, just to find that someone else ate or drank it without asking you if it was ok?  Well, Walt did it again and I am more than just pissed.  I am really disappointed in him.  He is such a loving and caring person underneath his tough guy persona.  But what he sometimes does, shows his insensitive and selfish side too.

He uses the excuse that "You are not supposed to eat/drink it anyway, so I am saving you from yourself".  Well, I know exactly what I should and should not be consuming, believe me.  But these days, especially since our home is so hot, due to the fact that we are not using the Air Conditioner.  I really look forward to having one really cold iced Diet Coke.  Yes, I do know that the Surgeons claim it is a no no, but I have been drinking one everyday for at least the last 3-4 months with no problems! 

Well, I buy one soda with lunch just about every day.  I take it home, drink a few sips of it, then place it in the refrigerator to keep it really cold, to drink later in the afternoon, when the house is so hot.  I began salivating, just thinking about the ice cold Diet Coke in my refrigerator.  So when I went to get it out just a little bit ago, lo and behold, it was 3/4's gone!!  Like I said earlier, Walt said "you are not supposed to be drinking it anyway, and after all, I did save you some".  Even if there wasn't anything else cold to drink, he should not have drank someone else's drink!!  I would never do this. 

And the worst part is...he has a whole 2 liter bottle of cold Dr Pepper in the frig.  He just doesn't want to open it up!!!!  Am I pissed?  Yes.  Am I disappointed?  Very!!!  Will I get over it?  Of course.  But it just irks me that he can be so selfish about some things.  He is not limited to what he can eat or drink like I am.  So the one thing that I am saving to savor later, should not be violated.  I guess it is a kind of trust issue.  I can't trust him to not eat or drink whatever he wants, even if he knows that it was being saved for me.  I guess that I feel this way because of the way that I was brought up.  You respect someone else's privacy and possessions.

Ok, I am getting off my soapbox.  I will stop bitching about my Walt.  Luckily, I really do love him to pieces.  But sometimes I just want to strangle him!!  Am I wrong in how I feel?  Am I being over dramatic and over reacting?  Walt thinks so.   

Well, it is hot....again.  It is reading 105 degrees on our back Patio and 86 degrees in my office.  I may just have to go jump in the pool real soon.  Till next time...

Aloha My Friends  :)

Glad the Doc is moving forward so you get some answers soon. Tell Walt I said NO HIJACKING the cold yummy pop!

All you can do is insist quietly that your wishes are respected. If he comments on what you should and shouldn't do that means he is acting as your self-appointed policeman, which is what my partner John does from time to time, and which I reject totally. You have more than proved that you can police yourself - you're a success story.
I'm afraid I'd have poured his Dr Pepper down the sink, but don't listen to me!!!

Hide the coke or put and empty one in the frig for him to hide. Try to make a joke, men get that better.

Jenny said...

I would be a little miffed also!

--Hey said...

You crack me up! So funny! And yes, it's O.K to be a little miffed! LOL! Hope you get the gall bladder thing figured out... Mine has been out for 8 years. Haven't missed it at all! ; )

Debi said...

I will keep you posted on the Gall Bladder.

Oh yes, my hubby does the same thing-eats all my stuff. I had to label a drawer in the fridge with a warning for him and my son. He's also found all my hiding spots. I'm not buying much bad stuff anymore so it shouldn't be too bad. Gotta put a sticky on it.

Hope the GB diagnosis goes ok.

Debi said...

Thanks Sandy! I know what you mean about hiding places. I too have had them, and not always because of having something "bad", but just so that someone else doesn't eat it up before I could even have some!
