Results from the Doctor Visit

First of all... THANKS to ALL of you for your PRAYERS!! They have been answered!! YAY!!

Ok.. first things first..

I have what I call the "white coat disease" LOL which makes my dang blood pressure shoot sky high at a dr visit and this one was no different than any other.. SOOO I have to get on blood pressure medicine.. yuck!

I have to start taking iron pills because I am anemic.. which I already knew.. just too stupid to take the things.. but as of yesterday I take 2 a day! =)

I have fibroids in my uterus... this is a good AND a bad thing! The bad thing is they are fibroids and are not helping my anemia at all... The good thing is my insurance covers the surgery for the removal of the fibroids (can't remember for the life of me what that is called) but while he is in there taking those out he will TIE MY TUBES BACK UP!!! YAY!!!

He said my weight loss is great and to keep it up, because it helps him while is doing the procedure (not as much fat to work around).

I go back this Friday to do a CBC and pelvic exam to find out exactly how many fibroids I have and all that good stuff..

Again, thanks for all the prayers, you all do not know how much it means to me that I have my prayers answered..

We are hoping for a June or July surgery, but like Dr. K says "we'll cross that bridge when we get there"

Sandra, thanks so much for referring him to me, you have TRULY helped me more than you know!

I have lost a total of 40 pounds and continuing to keep it going..

Thanks again to all of you!
