Update on mom

so turns out mom is gonna be ok, thank goodness.
they ran tests in the ER, she had a chest x ray and some bloods taken to see if there was a clot in her lungs. there wasnt. and the doctor said the x ray showed no signs of infection in the lungs either.
he told her she shouldnt have tried to go out this afternoon to get groceries, that she should have stayed home and rested after seeing the gp.
anyway, he said he’d send her an apt to go to the COPD outreach clinic, that will take about a week to organise.
So in the meantime he told her to contine to religiously take her inhalers, and also she is to finish her course of steroids.
I’m so glad she’s ok. Thank you for all of the prayers and kind thoughts you sent earlier today. They were very appreciated.

weight loss week four results

so i had a great result this week in slimming world!

i was down 3 and a half pounds! so thrilled! couldnt believe it when I stepped on the scales and was down by that much!

I also got slimmer of the week, for the second week running! And, wait for it, I also got slimmer of the month! So I now have two certificates to hang on my refridgerator!

Its such a great boost when you get slimmer of the week! Really lifts you up!

We had a food tasting ceremony tonight because there was awards for the biggest loser of the year going on. the food was delicious! meringues with coconut in them, pizzas, hummus and crackers, eggs with ham wrapped around them, and pavlovas! mmmm!

I’m now down 10 and a half pounds since I joined slimming world four weeks ago!

I cant quite believe it!

It has never been so easy to lose the weight either and I am not even hungry!

Long may this good streak continue!

updating

well its 1:30 AM now. I just woke up. I dont feel too bad. I had to get up and free my nose again, it was all stuffy still. But once I did that I didnt feel too bad. We’ll see how long that will last. Hopefully for a while. I ended up going to bed at 8, and I fell asleep right away. I did wake a few times for a few minutes each time. But nothing substancial. I just ate some fruit because I felt a little hungry. I’m still going to go to slimming world tonight even though I feel sick. I wouldnt miss it for the world. I have to see if I lost anything this week. Hopefully I did.
How is your night going?

posts but I don’t think I always succeed at it.
I try to keep my readers interested in my blog, so they will keep coming back.
who knows if I actually do a good job of it lol. I suppose I try to and that’s all that matters.
and now a little verse for you

emotions captivating
spell binding
mezmorizing
leave me breathless
sometimes in a mess
but always very reflective
