I ended up not going to the Redi Room for dinner. I am taking Keflex and it is messing with my belly. Dave made dinner which was NY Steak, Baked potato and salad. It was really good. I so rarely eat red meat anymore that it is a treat when I do. It was tender and done perfectly. Watched Idol and BL and I was grazing throughout the evening so I barely etched out a deficit.
I got on the scale this morning and it said 261. I am not happy about it. I like what Erika said yesterday though "Don't worry too much about your weight, at the moment. Medications and fluids given and so forth are going to futz with your numbers for a bit. Just eat as you normally do, getting lots of protein for healing and concentrate on recovering and taking care of yourself." I will give myself a reprieve this week but I was down to 256 during the week so it was frustrating to see that number again.
Heard back from the SCC Adoption Agency and they got my paperwork (I just sent it Monday!) and the next step is to make an appt. to go down to their office and have them witness me signing a form called Consent to Contact. This allows the birth parent(s) to contact me if they are ever interested. If they have filled one out then the agency can provide me with the contact info. If they have not filled one out then I will have to petition the Superior court to open the original records. I am still undecided on how to proceed with that part. One step at a time I guess.
I am going to be dog sitting for the next few days starting tomorrow. This is just a short trip and they will be home Saturday afternoon. I always get thrown off schedule when I dog sit but I love the dog and the family so I always say yes. I mean how can I say no to this sweet boy?
The key will be for me to be prepared ahead of time with my clothes and meds and stuff. Hopefully I can get a bag packed tonight and will be good to go in the a.m. I will most likely have leftover chicken for dinner tonight. Until next time...
