Maybe lost some weight

I just weighed myself on my mum scales. I couldn’t resist.

Looks like I lost what I gained while I was in England. I’m so happy about that.

Hopefully by the time I go to slimming world on Wednesday evening I will be down another pound or two on top of that. If I am, I will be thrilled

Hope I can do this, fingers crossed.

More loss. Another friendly call client of mine died this past week

So I just found out on the drive to work that another of our clients died. Her name was CAtherine. She had COPD and she had been in hospital since jan 1st. She passed away on wednesday in hospital.
She was only 72. She was one of my favourite clients. She’d been a client of friendly call for about 7 years.
She was always so grateful to get a call and she would constantly tell me how grateful she was and how wonderful I was for doing the job that I do.
I am going to really miss her. I got really friendly with her over the last 7 or 8 months. We built up a great rapport.
We’ve had so many losses lately in friendly call, 3 clients in two weeks. I hope we dont have any more now for a while.
I am kinda shocked that Catherine died so suddenly. She will certainly be a huge loss to all of us.

Worrying about my weight

I am a bit worried about going to slimming world this week. I weighed myself and it says I havent lost anything. I know all scales arent the same though. I know I probably shouldnt weigh myself at home. I should probably only do it at slimming world. I cant resist though. I just do it to make sure I am on the right track. I did have a couple of days this week of bad eating, or where I wasnt too mindful of what I was doing or putting in my mouth. I hate going and then not losing. It makes me feel so bad. I want to lose, even if I only lose 1 pound, or a half a pound. That will do. So if I go this week and I am down anything, I’ll be thrilled, I’m not expecting a big loss this week, if anything I will expect a tiny loss. I’ll be happy if I have any loss at all. I need to try to get more exercise in. I havent been too good about that either this week. I have until wednesday, as I dont go until wednesday evening. So tomorrow and wednesday I will be more mindful of what I am doing. I will eat healthier and drink lots of water. And hope for the best when I do go to slimming world on wednesday night

More on dad and his eyes

well it looks like dad is going back to the doctors tomorrow. the drops he got from the emergency doctor arent working. of course this is a huge deal to him. he didnt want to go in the first place and be seen! so the fact they arent working now for him, just gives him more to whine at us about.
mom said she’d make an appointment for him to see his own gp tomorrow. he’s saying he told the out of hours doctor about the drops he always gets, the ones he’s always put on for his eyes, but he wouldnt give them to him since he said the infection is bacterial and they wouldnt work on it.
i dont know, but to be honest? i dont trust the out of hours service. the doctors there they dont really care, they dont take the time to really examine you or to see what might be wrong, and most of the time they misdiagnose you.
right now dad has to be in complete darkness. he cant open his eyes. he finds it hard to keep them open or to look at any sort of bright light.
i just hope they’ll sort it tomorrow!

Dad update!

hi everyone

thanks for all of the prayers, good thoughts, good vibes, etc you sent my dads way!

He’s on the mend now! It was a bacterial eye infection that he had. Both eyes are effected!

He got two lots of drops which he has to take and if it doesnt get any better within a few days then he has to go back to the doctor again! I hope they will work! Im pretty sure they will though.

He’s very whiny, so not the greatest being around him at all tonight! But he went to the doctor, thats the main thing! After much coaxing from mom and me!

Just glad he’s doing somewhat ok! Heres hoping this double eye infection clears up quickly!

I feel so lousy!

My stomach is playing up tonight. I feel like shit. I dont know what is wrong with it, I didnt eat a lot today. I ate dinner, and breakfast, I ate some fruit, and a sandwich tonight, and a few pringles. Now I feel so off. It feels like I have acid in my stomach. Its horrible. I feel lousy. I asked mom if she had something I could take. She gave me one of her antacid tablets. I hope it starts to work soon. I hope I dont have this for the whole night! There is no pain, no nausia or vomiting, just a horrible taste in my mouth and some reflux too. Ug this sucks!
