So I had a crazy weekend. I got a fill on Tuesday and looking bad I should have gotten a fill half the size of last time but I didn't I got just slightly less than last time 0.40cc from 0.50cc Then I was on liquids and mushies for two days then on Friday I was able to eat. I went to my moms and had bbq ribs(they were too dry) and potatoe salad. I had just a tablespoon of salad and a couple bites of pork...got stuck. Then for desert I had made peach cobbler...should have said no but I had a tablespoon...got stuck. So I figured Saturday I would go back to liquids because in the past after getting stuck I am a little swollen and a day of liquids gets me back to feeling normal...not the case this time. On Saturday I started to tighten as the day grew. By 5 o'clock I could not keep water down...mind you by this time I had dropped 10lbs since Tuesday I was nervous I was going to be dehydrated if not already...I didn't want to go to ER but I wasn't sure what to do and I didn't think I could make it until monday to get an unfill.
So I belong to this Facebook group of lapbanders for my clinic and I posted and asked them...they gave me an afterhours number and told me to run it by our doc and see what he says...so I call him, he says to get into the office asap and he will unfill me he didn't want me to hurt the band or dehydrate myself so I go in and he takes out ALL my liquid. I am in tears now because I for some reason blame myself. Looking back I am not sure I could have done anything differently except I should not have eaten dry pork and potatoes being as tight as I am. Ughhh
So I have to wait 2 weeks before I start fills again....back to the drawing board...On top of that hubbies work screwed up paychecks and we still have not gotten paid..should have been paid Friday then they said they would have it Saturday or the latest Monday...neither happened...I guess I am glad I don't live on the east coast because hubbies boss was still out of power on Friday and then she woke up to no check as well.
Not sure when they will get him his paycheck so I had to withdraw it from savings which I hate doing because it never makes its way back there.
We entered an auction bid for a golf cart on a government site and won! Its an old golf cart but hubby is going to fix it up. Our community up here is the kind where a lot of people drive golf carts around and with hubby now working full time from home I would like to cut back on gas and use the golf cart more. So I am pretty excited to see it...we pick it up Wednesday
