    Best wishes on your surgery, CHQ. You will feel like a new woman in a couple of days.
    I have been doing better with migraines lately but must have eaten some msg at a Christmas party last night. Time for some excedrin; maybe with a pepsi chaser.
    Is anyone else excited about Le Miserables?

    CHQ, you are probably in surgery now, so I am praying for you. We want a successful surgery with an uneventful recovery. AFif is scary. I went through years of it, but no more problems - at least for now. You don't pump much blood at 240 beats a minute. I hope your BIL recovers nicely.

    Vanogay, I've had one slice of bread in the last week and none for weeks before that so you're not making me sweat on this one. I am not only gluten free, but yeast free so my choices are limited. Once in a while a grilled cheese calls my name. I was making one for my GF GS and had to make a half for me. Tell me no pumpkin dump cake, then I'd pout. My DD, DGS and I shared one last night. Yum!

    sewNso, your package went out yesterday. A FQ with a bonus, both laundered and ready to go. Enjoy.

    Tonight is dinner out with my oldest daughter. I think I need a steak. I tend to eat a lot of chicken and soups here alone, so I'd like a nice steak cooked by someone else. I read that beef helps with underactive thyroid so that's my excuse.

    I am off to take three bags of goodies to SA - some Christmas, so I need to get it there. Have a healthy eating day.

    I am losing weight and becoming healthier.

    Edit: I am excited about Les Miserables in an apprehensive way. I don't like to see people in pain and unhappy situations, but do want to see this one badly, so I will get someone to go with me and brave it.

    Edit #2: On the way to an out of town game last week an insurance company had posted this out front: "Bad decisions make good stories." Funny, but sometimes true.

    I tried medifast several years ago. I couldn't stand the food. It was awful. I tried adding spices and gave it up. Good luck to you.

    Irish, got your FQ today. it is beautiful. thx for the 'starry' piece also. it is really pretty.
    country, is prob out of surgery by now. and she was in our thoughts all day today. my youngest daughter is having lasic surery on both her eyes tomorrow. she has really bad site in one eye, and the other is not so bad. lazy eye, i think from yrs ago. hope everything goes well. i'm a little concerned cause she is the last one in the day. if i had my way, i'ld like for her to have had it earlier. hope the surgeon is still steady at 3:30.

    I had a sinus infection last week. I have been on antibiotics for a week. I am breaking out in an itchy rash. I called the doctor she said to take Benedryl. That is like taking a sleeping pill to me.
    I have been eating pretty well this week. The no bread has been hard since while I read the post I had a loaf of homemade rye bread in the oven. I did have to eat a couple of slices. I know that bread is my enemy since when I cut it back I loose weight better. The next day I put the rest of the bread out for the birds. :-(
    Has anyone heard how CHQ is doing since surgery. I hope things are going well.

    When I broke out last year, my doctor pulled the sulfa and wanted me to get a Med alert bracelet. I haven't purchased one yet - I thought a rash wasn't serious, but he felt otherwise.

    I have been off my eating schedule today. I think the best thing I can do is go to bed and have a lean day tomorrow. We served peppermint stick ice cream in Oreo crusts with my homemade chocolate sauce at a meeting today. I skipped the crust, but it seems ice cream and choc sauce is not a good breakfast because I've been eating ever since. It makes the roasted veggies sound good.

    So much to do for Christmas yet. My sewing machine is feeling lonely. When I was in the family room tonight, the poor little homely thing looked pitiful. I'm glad I'm not doing any sewing for Christmas, but I haven't gone a few weeks without a quilt in the works since I started two years ago.

    Have a clean eating 24 hours. One day at a time will get us through the holidays.

    Ice cream with chocolate sauce sounds like a wonderful breakfast to me. I am making a few table runners for Christmas gifts. I finally started them last night. Hopefully they will go pretty fast. They ave snowmen on them.
    It has been a really bad week at school. So upset even chocolate didn't sound good. I am going to the principal next week.

    I'm back!! Came home yesterday. I have 4 holes in my belly and no more gallbladder!!!! Doc said the surgery went better than he expected, and he expected it to go well. Said my gallbladder was inflamed and full of stones, but no other organs were comprimised with the removal. He also got to look around and said my stomach, pancrease and liver looked good too. I'm pretty sore right now, and only able to sleep in our recliner. Going to give the couch a try in a couple days, just afraid I won't be able to get off of it right now, with out a lot of pain or hurting something. No bed, as we have a waterbed and I'm really scared I won't get out of it. Doc said I can walk, stairs (limited amount), eat anything, no lifting over 5lbs. I haven't really eaten anything other than soup, eggs and toast. Not in the mood I guess. Tomorrow I'm going to do some sewing, keep myself occupied. For now, I'm back to the chair for a nap. Nite ladies!!!!
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    CHQ glad to hear things went well. YOu will feel so much better with your gallbladder gone. I found that after a couple of days I could sleep on the couch kinda laying half on my side and half on my back. I leaned against the back of the couch. Good luck. Hopefully at least you can sew.
