Day 98

I am updating early tonight because I always feel worse in the evening and I'm not sure I'm going to be up to updating later as I haven't slept since Friday night.

Today after my fever spiked again I called and got a "day of" appointment with my doctor. I have a severe sinus infection which she said is causing my fevers, seeming congestion, cough and possibly tummy discomfort. She gave me a strong antibiotic and a tetanus shot (totally didn't see that coming) and set me up with an appointment for blood work and a physical. I like her, she's clever...

Now I do have some news, but its a mixed kind of thing. I was weighed at the doctors office today as a part of routine. The scale is different, and not my meeting scale so I don't know if these numbers will hold, and I know that a lot of this has to do with the fact that I have been sick and ate practically nothing yesterday. That being said the doctors scale said that I weighed 364lbs. That, if it held until at least next week, would be a loss of 9.6lbs, and a total loss of 53.8. We will see.

There is always a bright side eh?

Today:
1/3 of a can of 1pt soup: 1
1/2 serving fat free cheddar: 1
1 baked potato with cheese (because they don't seem to make me want to vomit): 7
1 1/2 servings chili: 6
1 serving sw baked ziti: 8
1/3 nutella and jam sandwich: 2
Total for the Day: 25/43

Yeah I know the numbers aren't fantastic right now, but my stomach is still in staunch protest of most food items right now, including liquids. I'm working on it.

Let's hope those antibiotics do the trick fast! 9 lbs down would be nice, but what a hard way to earn it!
Take care,
