Updating...

Happy to say it's been restful these past few days. I had to get some insurance crap straightened out, so my tests are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. Wish me luck!

On the plus side, I lost 16 pounds of water in the first week. It's mind-boggling.

That's about 2 gallon-sized jugs of water.

Or the pair of Beth Chapman's jugs (I swear that woman must have a spine of steel to be able to stand erect).

My left leg actually looks like a human leg again. My right still has that tree trunky thing going. And my energy level has gone way way up.

I can't tell if it's because of the water loss or the oxygen or a combination of both.

Thanks so much for all your kind comments and wishes! Can't tell you how much it's appreciated!

16lbs!?!?!?!?

At that rate in a few months you'd cease to exist at all.

Dang--that's like carrying a baby around all day! Or jugs, I guess. Good luck---and thanks for the good report!

So glad to hear that you are feeling better. You have been on my mind...a lot. That is a lot of water to loose, make sure you eat bananas. Pottassium levels can get messed up with water pills. I guess you probably know that.
Keep us posted. Good luck with the tests.
XXXXXXX

I totally believe you in that you lost that much weight in water! I can do that too! I can lose up to 7 pounds in one day just from piddling! You must be feeling so much better.

I'm glad the problem was spotted and that you're on the mend now.

Crikey! How does she walk and stand with those breasts? She looks deformed.
