A couple days ago I hit the 100lbs lost mark. (from my highest) I thought I would be more excited but it really made me think how far I had let myself go. I'm proud of my most recent efforts though, especially in light of all that has been happening here at that home front.

Last week I noticed I was pretty tight and had got stuck a few times. My allergies kicked in the first sunny day we had and I ended up getting an unfill of .15 which is the fill I had received on 1/28. I haven't been stuck since the unfill but I haven't had any additional hunger either. I'm not super worried about it because I know if I feel like I need more I won't have to fight for it... Love my NP!

I started on some Zyrtec and also went back on Omeprazole just in case my morning cough was acid reflux related vs. allergies.

I wish I had more to blog about. I didn't turn on my computer for a few days (I did use my phone to look at facebook) but I think I needed to check out for a bit. By the time I had a little news to share and planned on posting we ended up with company which I prepared for. I got a pretty good workout deep cleaning this house. Feels good to Spring clean, have the windows open and smell fresh cut grass.

It's been a long ass winter.

Gene's MRI came back with no evident stroke.(good news)
In the words of his Doctor, his kidneys are "Going South". (not sure if this is better news or worse) All his stroke type symptoms are connected to the the high blood pressure which he is now on 12 medications a day for. Not sure it is working as his last reading was 224/107 but he has several upcoming appointments in the next two weeks so I am hoping they figure something out soon. I can't really think about it because we still don't know everything. Trying to stay positive!

Thank you all for the thoughts and well wishes.



  1. Congrats on the 100! amazing!

    Yes, Reeger is the best...we chatted on the phone on Fri for about 20 mins about how I want a floro...she is GREAT! :) We are so lucky.

    Hang in there with Gene's health...I am always here to chat if you need to talk :) HUGS!

  2. 100 in light of all the things happening at home is fantastic. From experience I know that being the care provider is really stressful. The fact that you are able to take care of your DH and manage your health is a great NSV and deserves kudos.

  3. You need to celebrate 100 lost! That is really amazing, and you should take credit for your success. Glad you are figuring out some things with DH's health. Hang in there.

  4. 100 lbs is great Jen! I will keep you and your husband in my prayers.

  5. 100lbs is amazing. I can understand with everything else going on that you may not think that is worth celebrating, but it is :o)

    I hope things get better with your hubby soon.
