Emergency Room Visit and Scarf Update!

3 Dec

My week was very interesting. Monday morning I woke up with a dull pain in my lower back on the left side and that pain caused me to miss work all week except Tuesday and I didn’t even make it through the whole shift. I left after 5 and a half hours. When Friday rolled around and the pain hadn’t subsided I decided it was time to see a doctor. I spent Friday from 1130am to 11pm in the er. The results of my CT scan and ultrasound show a 6cm cyst on my left ovary. With no immediate major treatment needed they sent me home with pain meds and a referral to follow up with my gynecologist. I will be calling first thing Monday morning to get the next available appointment. 

I quit drinking soda as of this past Monday. I haven’t had soda in a whole 7 days. I am utterly shocked that it came with such ease. I had the withdrawal headache on Tuesday and Wednesday but once I got over the 3 day hump I was fine. I am part of a Skinny Snowman Challenge right now and I woke up this morning to a 5lb loss! Very surprising considering the IV bag of fluids at the ER and the monthly visitor is in as of Saturday. I am very happy with all that I am doing to change my lifestyle for the better. I also found out I like cantaloupe, which I never thought possible oh and granny smith green apples.

Now onto my scarf update. I am absolutely in love with how this scarf is coming out. I can not wait to see the finished product and know that I created it! I crochet mostly in the evening and it really does help calm me down and relax me. It also gets me off the computer which is good. I am also excited that I kind of inspired one of my best friends to pick up knitting again! I’ve known her for 5 years and I didn’t even know she could knit! She’s pretty good at it too!
