Dear Diary Wednesday...

Another weight in and we did good again. I lost .2 lbs and Dylan stayed exactly the same....which the instructors told us is actually good at week two because the first week is the biggest loss (usually water) and the second week is when your body usually fights it and puts weight on so if you did lose OR stayed the same, you are doing good. I was very proud of both of us.

This has been a difficult week. Poor Dylan hurt his back somehow and has been fighting the pain and muscle spasms. He has been to the doctor on Monday, is going back today, and has missed two days of work....which he has to be damn near death to not go to work!! He has been trying to take it as easy as possible and keep the anti-inflammatory's going.

Oh, the weekend is around the corner! I am off work on Friday for a major physical exam and Dylan is going with me to hold my hand. I am not as nervous as I thought I was going to be, which lets me know as I am getting older, I am getting emotionally stronger. We are then going to be spending time together, hopefully seeing a movie or relaxing or just something. I might be going over to a friend's house on Sunday to help her get caught up with her household chores because she has been spending the week at the hospital with her Dad who had a massive heart attack. Oh, did that bring back some bad memories of the panic a daughter goes through when their parent's are suffering! I surely can empathize with this friend!!! All of my energy is being channeled towards her and her family right now
