So I have now officially lost 30 pounds! I'm really happy about it. It feels good to take better care of myself and get back in shape. I can't believe that just 3 months ago I was carrying around the equivalent of a small child everywhere I went.
But on the flip side, over the last week I've developed some health concerns. Just when I start actually taking care of myself...go figure!
Now, we're searching for answers.
Yesterday I had an ultrasound done in search of gall stones. But none were found. Then I had a CT scan done, which basically found out nothing (as far as digestively) except for the fact my lymph nodes are slightly enlarged.
So tomorrow I go in for something called an EGD, in which they'll scope out my stomach and do a little biopsy. Then on Monday I'll do a Hydrascan, which is a test to see if my gall bladder has shut down or not. Then later next week I'll have a colonoscopy just to make sure there aren't more serious things going on.
So I appreciate your prayers as we search for answers and try and get me healthy again. The one bright side I can claim, though, is that at least I won't be gaining the weight back in the immediate future!
