- 2.8 lbs Oh My!

This week I had a weigh in and a Drs. appointment. First off I weighed in on Tuesday and lost 2.8 lbs for a total loss of 8.4 lbs in two weeks! I've met my 4% goal for Diet Bet! Only 11 more days before the game is over and the money is split up among those that reached their goal. There are 7,947 players and $238,440 in the pot. I'll keep you posted on the winnings.

Earlier this week I had an appointment with a surgeon and I made the decision to go ahead with the surgery as scary as it seems. I don't relish the thought of being cut into. Thankfully it's a minimally invasive procedure and I'll be in and out of the hospital in the same day. My surgery date is set for October 24th.

There was no shortage of comedy at the surgeons office. Of course in the waiting room as I'm speaking to the nurse/receptionist she asked me how my injury happened. "Did this happen at work or where you in a car accident?" Of course just two feet to the left of me was a mature woman in a chair filling out some medical forms. What could I do? What should I say? So I just put all my cards on the table in a matter of fact fashion and said: "It happened in bed". The receptionists expression was a memorable one. Her eyes got big and her jaw dropped. She was speechless for a second and then said "Oh My!". She then said "I'll be with you shortly". Maybe 30 seconds or a minute went buy and she opened the door to the waiting room and called my name: "Sonya". I then asked my husband to come in the room with me and introduced him to her: "This is my husband Chris" I said with a big smile. We then walked through the threshold with her leading us. While her back was to us she threw out a statement "Time to put the trapeze away".  She glanced back at us and smiled. She explained that she never heard that as an explanation for an injury. I think I made her day. :)
