Foot Surgery on 10/2

Yep, it's official. Well, he said they are not going to amputate, just cut out a portion of the outside of his foot that has not healed in 2 years.

I think it's just the beginning. I don't think this will heal and they will need to carve out more.

But before surgery, we are leaving on 9/21 and going back to sea level for a week just to see if his feet heal. If they do, this would be the 3rd time at sea level that his feet heal and proof that we need to move.

It's going to be outpatient surgery, so I'm not preparing for it....but somehow think I should....like rent a bed for the living room. We will see.

Today, we started on the South Beach diet together. So, here come the lies! My sis is here and I asked him just now if he was going to get on the stationery bike and he said he already rode today. Now, I was gone so I have no proof...but I'm 100% positie he did not set foot on it! LOL! He is just soooooo bad! I don't know why he can't just say, "I don't feel like riding tonight!"

But then I will confess here for my own journaling that when I was at my doctor's yesterday for my annual physical, I asked her to write and RX for me to go on a diet.....so he would help me out. I love my doc! She wrote and RX for the South Beach Diet and I stopped and picked up a book on the way home, then told him I had to do it...would he help me. :o) Hopefully this will at least reduce the number of bags of potato chips that he devours in a week. And maybe get him on the bike at least 3 - 4 nights a week. Better than where we are now.

I know, you all want to email him and tell him what I've done! Well...I do need to eat better and it's my way of loving him....he can help me and think he's doing a good thing!

I'll let you know if it works. The first 2 weeks will be the hardest as we're leaving next week to go visit the ocean. (Sort of like a pet...we must go visit every so often!)

Glad to have you back online! My mind conjured up all sorts of horrible scenarios for your absence, so I'm glad technical issues were to blame.

I do hope your hubby gets positive results again from the trip to sea-level. If so, perhaps you can get his doc to write out an Rx for the move so insurance will cover expenses :)

Surgery always sounds scary for me whether inpatient or outpatient, but we'll all hope for the best. Being on South Beach, even if there is an occassional cheating episode, should do much to help with the healing.

I need to wake my own hubby up for his work shift and then make some food, so I'll chat with you later.

I would post if anything happened....no horrible scenarios at all! Cool idea on the RX for the move!

Seems to me that his version of South Beach includes bags of potato chips. I think the "borrowers" may be dumping half a bag at a time! LOL!
