What's Up Doc?
Wednesday, March 15, 2017
"What's up Doc?" (Did you hear that in your head in Bugs Bunny's voice? I did.)
That is what I said to my doctor when unusual things started happening to me.... "What's up doc?" Of course, the series of lab work, x-rays and CT scans followed. Being the optimist that I am, I celebrated that the results ALL came back normal. Fabulous! So, again I ask, "What's up Doc?"
Fabulously normal should not mean total loss of any appetite, stomach tenderness and intense back pain, right? A fabulously normal person should be able to eat more than a slice of toast without being miserable. Hmmmmm? Silver lining, all this combined has resulted in weight loss. Not how I wanted to lose it, but it is gone.
At last, the Doc has a recommended solution. I am on day 4 now of a new short term medication which seems to be helping a bit. A little appetite has returned, but still keeping it to bland and easy to digest foods for now.
Even though I have been going through this and had to put my work outs on hold until I am feeling better, I KNOW that I will do just that and start working out again as soon as I am better. I was doing well with working out 4 to 5 times a week and starting to lose weight. I know I can keep it going once I get past this attempted road block. I will not be stopped and that, dear doc, is what's up! ME, I am up.... I am up for the challenge no matter what!
