Fitbit struggles from a healthy junky

So my damn fitbit hasn’t synced since late August.  I’ve tried every suggested fix short of losing all of my data and still nothing.  The next step includes a reset and that’s when I’ll lose all of my data so I’m sort of pissed.  I mean, I just got the damn thing back a few months ago.

Lately I’ve spent more time trying to sync and fix it than I have working out so I’m wondering what the breaking point is….

Ugh, gadgets.

Last week when I had my procedures the nurse had a bit of trouble finding my vein.  It wasn’t too terribly bad and she only missed once but she had to put the IV in my hand and I tend to bruise pretty bad there.

It isn’t painful, it just looks really bad {way worse than the pictures} but I’ve had mad fun with it.  Whenever I’m out and about and someone looks at me or says something, I make comments like, ‘yeah, I know, I need to find another vein’ and then I crack up at the side eye I get.

Do you bruise easy?

Any fitbit struggles for you?

From your gum to your bum….

So obviously the surgery went okay, otherwise I would probably not be updating today, right?

medical humor

For the record I don’t usually mind medical humor, in fact, I sort of appreciate it but here’s the thing, when there are several patients and they are all within earshot, don’t use the same joke over and over again.  It’s horrible.  “Oh, you’re having the gum to your bum today….yada yada yada….”

MacGyver and I arrived at the surgery center around 8:30 in the morning.  My surgery was scheduled for 8:45.  The surgery center is just like a big ER and all the patients are in the rooms beside each other before they go into surgery.  That’s why I kept hearing the nurses tell the same joke over and over and by the time they got to me I was over it.

I had asked MacGyver the night before if he would take a sharpie and write ‘don’t amputate anything’ on my back in case they got confused as to which patient I was but apparently they only had colonoscopies and endoscopies on the schedule so no worries there.

My surgery didn’t start until nearly 10AM and I’ve had both a colonoscopy and an endoscopy many times, so I knew what to expect.   I just wanted them to knock me out and get it over with, sans jokes.

Finally they woke me up around 11:15 and told me that I have a hiatal hernia and an ulcer, some diverticulosis and several small white patchy areas which they’ve biopsied.  Too much info for you?  Well, how about a picture.

Sorry, I had to.

I guess I will have to wait until my follow up to find out what they learn from the biopsies.  I tried to pick the doctors brain so I’d have some idea of what she thought but she had the worst bedside manner and was not very friendly or informative.  She just told me to take a prilosec every day and avoid aspirin until the biopsy results come in.

I’m pretty sure she’s fired after the follow up regardless of the outcome.  I have never had good luck with gastroenterologist.  I have hated almost every one I’ve seen and maybe she was just having a bad day but so far she hasn’t won me over or even made me think twice about giving her a second chance.

Once MacGyver and I got home I slept for the rest of the day.  On Saturday we went to a ton of garage sales and estate sales and on Sunday I decorated for fall, because I can.

And that was my weekend.

How was yours?

Getting to the bottom of things, literally

After going to the eye doctor on Monday and after my eyes were no longer dilated, I put my contact lenses back in.  I just want to mention that my coconut oil and my contact lens solution look very similar.  They are both clear bottles with blue writing, which is probably why I didn’t realize I had mistaken one for the other until my eyes started to burn.

eye pain

It was so much fun.

Do you know what’s even more fun?  What I’m doing tomorrow…

colonoscopy

Well, I don’t remember ever wearing anything so ugly but the doctor says I’m ready so I guess I am.

 

Actually, even better than a colonoscopy, I’m also having an endoscopy at the same time, oh the joy!  I’ll be exceptionally glad when all this is over.  Seriously.

colonoscopy

I’ll be glad when the doctors finally figure out what’s going on but I’m also happy to forgo this procedure if I could.

constipation

WORD!

Since you can’t eat anything the day leading up those two procedures, I’ve decided not to run today. Because I”m always hungry anyway but if I run it’ll be twofold.

Wish me luck for tomorrow.
