It's 5 am and I'm wide awake....
Just look what happens when you lose 2 litres of blood, get 4 litres pumped back in then sit on ya bum all day ! MASSIVE FLUID RETENTION...I AM NOT IMPRESSED! I got on the scales this morning to find a beautiful GAIN of 2.5 kilos in 2 days!!!
So, I am officially not weighing myself ever again! OK, maybe not forever, but certainly not until I am back to NORMAL.... and getting my exercise again... this sucks.
On a happier note, I am being picked up by the lovely Janene this morning to go to Anne's for our "Keeping it Real" coffee morning.... can't wait to just sit and yak. later....
8.03 am: Ahhhh , breakfast in bed....delivered by the ever loving Man... a piece of toast, a latte and a bowl of pills! Only three pills though... So, all is good.
Then he came down with .... a bloody live mouse in his hand! seems he caught it with his bare hands as it scurried across the lounge! Ewwwww, So, that makes *7* mice so far...
I have just had a lovely morning, Janene picked me up and we met the others for a lovely morning tea etc. Then Stew too me to lunch, I had a beef/chicken kebab... so nice. I am not worrying about weight at the moment, my health is more important - so I am going to eat well to boost my heamaglobin levels so I am all better asap. That does not mean I shall pig out, you understand, but I will have everything I need.
Right, I'm off now to have a nap... I am tired - AGAIN ... *sigh*.

Right, I tried to fix the date on this post, and LOST THE have redone it... WHERE WAS I?
I had a lovely long 3 hour nap.... then Janene turned up with a cooked chicken and pikelets !!! THANK YOU SWEETIE! So nice.
It's the end of the day, the teenagers are all in the lounge watching movies, Stew is upstairs watching rugby, and I'm here sorting out this stoooopid blog!
NSV TODAY: I had a neat time seeing me girlfriends, and I'm feeling much better. nite nite *****Oh yeah, I lost all my comments from today tooo, so don't go thinking I didnt' publish yours, I DID, just lost them now.. boooo hoooo.

    Losing weight isn't important at the moment - but building yourself up certainly is.

    Hope you are feeling better very soon.

    Weight loss is not important in the next couple of weeks... getting better is the main thing aye...

    Love ya

    Holy crap, they certainly pumped you full of it O_O Though like the others have said, that isn't real weight, and Christine is very right in saying that you're not being fair on yourself to weigh during times like this.

    Just take care of yourself!

    Glad to hear your ok darling! Sorry havent been able to stop by earlier....having my own small crisis here.

    Hope all goes well!

    Why the hell would you weigh yourself when you know you're full of fluid ya silly moo!!! That would just depress me completely and I would turn into an eating machine if I weighed 2.5 kg heavier in two days! Shit.
    Actually I AM an eating machine at the moment, think it will all be over on Thursday though, it's just stress. I have a constant sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that just won't go away, eating doesn't help but I can't seem to stop. Wish you were here to slap me!!

  14. Lee-Anne has left a new comment on your post "BUGGER ME !!!":

    Bloody hell. I've never seen that before. How can you honestly weigh yourself when you're retaining that much fluid. Hope it goes soon mate.

    Enjoy your meeting this morning. I had a dream last night that I was there. Funny that.

    Just caught up on your last few post as I have been out of blogland this week! I'm sorry to hear of your hospital visit and hope you are on the mend soon!

    The way your leg looks is how mine did when I injured my leg and got all puffed up. It was weird to see the dents in the leg. But, they will go away with time. Your body just trying to heal itself. You do look white! I hope you have your color back in your face soon. Big hugs to you. {hugs}

    I agree with Christine ... don't even go near those scales till everything is back to normal!! This is not weight gain, just fluid and you know it. :)

    My god!!! It will settle down soon, hang in there and enjoy your morning tea.

    I hope you are feeling more like your old self soon! Feeling lousy STINKS!

    As for mice.....ICK....hate those stinking vermin! :)

    Holy shit girl - they sure pumped you full of fluid! That weight you took is NOT your weight - its not even fair to weigh yourself during these times.

    Take care of yourself - and take it easy. Put the scale away for a week!

  22. Glam has left a new comment on your post "BUGGER ME !!!":

    Yikes! At least you know the weight isn't really a gain -- it's faux weight! It'll be gone before you know it!

    You've been having a hellavu time. Hang in there, keep those feet propped up and have a fab time at your coffee meeting!

    Poor dear hope you are feeling better soon. Perhaps this might lighten your mood.

    Have a wonderful weekend. Take care of yourself.

  24. Hi babe,water retention sucks and it always looks nasty too! Stay away from those damn scales, you'll only upset yourself *hugs* I'll sleep well tonight and everything will be fine - see you on the otherside! :)

  25. Jesus christ, I don't log on for a few days and come back to hear all of this. Very glad to hear you are feeling a bit better and focussing on your health as the no.1 priority.

    Bloody vaginas, they can be more trouble then they are worth... ;-)

    Those pikelets look awesome by the way.

  26. gosh fluid retention sucks!
