    Thanks for suggesting groupings. I had a rough run-in with a dietician while I was in the hospital. She flat out said my small steps were not good enough and that if I didn't do everything her way and totally change everything and stick 100% to what she said that I was wasting her time and mine and I shouldn't even bother. I'm still on the defensive over it. Not to mention plenty PO'd. That's the kind of person who makes it so hard for people like me.

    So I apologize for being grumpy and beligerent, but I kind of figure at this point anything that keeps me making the small steps in the right direction is a good thing. My friends will understand and forgive me, and the snots like that dietician can kiss my fluffy tush. (Sorry, there's the temper again. But getting mad is better than giving up!)

    Thank you for being one of my friends! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you! You must have read my mind! I am fantasizing about a nice long soak! Tomorrow all I have to get out and do is labs, so I plan to catch up on my rest. Have a wonderful night tonight!

    Thanks for the moral support! My calorie intake is already way down because I haven't felt like eating since the surgery. The Dr said I can probably get in water in another week or so, so my mother in law and husband are getting me a membership at the Y! They are so good to me! emoticon

    Laughing out loud at your raccoon story! The only native mammal we have in NZ is a bat, and while they may hang in trees, they don't do it around here and certainly they don't raid anything.
    Thanks for dropping by to say hello,

    I'm glad my blogs were helpful. I'm still struggling, but doing better. You are half my size, so you will probably breeze through much easier than I am emoticon Do plenty of research, and BE PREPARED! I thought I was totally prepared for the pain after all the years of dislocating kneecaps, collapsing legs, severe arthritis, and bones grinding on bones. I WASN'T!! It is a totally different kind of pain, and honestly I woke up thinking I wanted to die I hurt so bad. But its already worth it. Good luck with your surgery, keep me posted, and let me know if there is anything I can do for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon
