Always look on the Bright Side...

Come on, sing along, you know the words...

The bright side of Gallstones? Two weeks on from THAT weekend, I have lost 9lbs!!!! I'm not finding it that difficult yet to stick to the less than 5% fat rule, even though it's fairly restrictive and the weight is dropping away...

You know what though, I have to try and keep it in check because guess what rapid weight loss can cause? You guessed it: Gallstones!

Birthday gifts

Guess what I got for my Birthday? Gallstones and a dead robin on my duvet! Joy...

Been horrendously ill since Friday night, fever and nastiness and finally got to see a Doctor on Monday morning. Got the great Russian Roulette choice of having an op to take out the Gallbladder immediately or go home and cope with the pain til it passes. Given my dread of hospitals and general mistrust of Doctors, I chose the latter and they gave some anti-spasmodics to calm my stomach. I wonder if they work as I never really got the chance to digest any of them! Feel a bit more normal today so fingers crossed. Now it's just a low fat diet or a return to the pain.

As I say it was my Birthday yesterday, and I spent most of it either propped up sleeping on the sofa or propped up sleeping in bed in between bouts of, well, you know! My cat, Matilda, has never had a cat-flap before and it took a while but now she has the hang of it. I was in bed yesterday afternoon and heard the flap go and little paddy feet approaching, she jumps up on the bed and comes over all purry and rolling around for attention, then went to sleep. I got up for another bout of yuk some time later and when I came back to bed there is my shape in the duvet with her asleep one side and a recently dead Robin on the other side!!!! Joy! What a thoughtful gift, shame she hadn't kept the reciept.
