It's 5 am and I'm wide awake....

Just look what happens when you lose 2 litres of blood, get 4 litres of fluids 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 kgs literally in 2 days !!!

So, I am officially not weighing myself again forever!!!! 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 meeting.... 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!!!! Ewwwwwww. So, that makes *7* mice so far....

I have had a lovely morning, Janene picked me up and we met the others and had a lovely morning tea etc. Then STew took me to lunch, I had a beef/chicken kebab... so lovely!!!! I am not worrying about my 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. And some multi vitamins too! It's gotta be good for me.

Right, I am now off to have a nap !!!! I am tired - AGAIN.... *sigh*...
Blogger is being a bugger.... at the top is a photo of the lovely pikelets Janene just brought around, and she also got me a roast chicken.... cos I mentioned I would love some! What a sweetie!!! This afternoon I had a 3 hour nap!! It was bliss.... and now I'm feeling so much better..... won't be long till I'm rearing to go again I reckon.
End of day, Stew is in 7th Heaven - the rugby is on... the kids are driving me nuts (what's new?) and I am feeling good.
NSV today : I met up with me girlfriends, which is always neat.
nite nite.


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

    Have a wonderful weekend. Take care of yourself.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

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

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

  5. Winning the mice battle hey? Wow, that leg looks awful!

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

  7. 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. :)

  8. 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}

  9. And quit worrying about your weight! Just worry about getting healthy! ok, ok? I know easier said than done.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!!

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

    Hope all goes well!

  13. Lol @ 7 mice! Hope the fluid goes down soon, have a great day!

  14. 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!

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

    Love ya

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

    Hope you are feeling better very soon.

  17. Good to see a bit of colour in those cheeks this morning!

  18. I agree mate. You rest up and eat healthy. Get yourself up to revving gear.

  19. Jesus, now I want pikelets. How bloody good do they look? I hope it's low fat cream! LMAO.

  20. Ahh those legs take me back to the pregnancies .... I am so not clucky now .... !! lol
    I am sure you would be tired and you need to rest .... You have a great man there looking after you! And by the sounds of it a few good friends .... lean on them! Your health is so worth it!!
