Chicken Soup

Posted July 21st, 2010 by admin

Someone asked me for the recipe for my soup, which was very flattering! I thought I might as well post it here, but I’m sure I’ve posted something similar before. Chicken Soup I make no claims to be a great cook – in fact with three fussy eaters in the household, cooking is a source [...]

Back to work tomorrow!

Posted July 21st, 2010 by candi

Sorry for the stream of consciousness post… I never said I was a good writer! I saw my surgeon on Monday for a post op appointment. He said that the procedure was straight forward and everything went well – apart from my tooth! There is a 1 in 100 chance that gall stones can form [...]

The other surprise

Posted July 18th, 2010 by candi

After I’d been to the doctor, I got the scripts for all of the medications I’ll be taking and had them filled. For one months worth of two medications and three months worth of the third medication, it cost me nearly $90. I know that they are subsidised by the PBS, so I’m grateful for [...]

Two interesting things I saw today

Posted July 17th, 2010 by candi

and I did push myself a bit today, probably more than I should have. Willow had a birthday party to go to – the daughter of the friend who helped me get to the dentist last week, invited her on the spur of the moment. I figured that I’d probably be feeling a bit stircrazy [...]

At least they are not horse tablets!

Posted July 17th, 2010 by candi

I went to my GP yesterday as he wanted to see me after my operation, about my blood pressure. It hadn’t really improved with the new medication, so he prescribed a third medication. I now take a dose of nifedipine, indipamide and perindopril every day. After a very busy day, I tested again and got [...]

It’s not often that I’ll wear track/yoga pants outside the house unless I’m actually going to the gym, but I didn’t think jeans were a good option today. A lovely friend was picking me up to go to the dentist to have my tooth fixed. As it turned out, it was a tooth that had [...]

Kinda gross.

Posted July 13th, 2010 by candi

I apologise if this posts squicks you out, but I wanted to keep a record of what’s happening with my body. This is them. You can clearly see the two larger ones at the top. A less blurry picture. Gall stones are one of those things that when you mention you have them – everyone [...]

I can’t drive for a week and I can’t go to the gym for a month. My stomach hurts too much to do anything. My blood pressure is still high – 155/105 again. Couldn’t get into my dentist until Wednesday at 11.30am. *sigh* Lucky I’m not in pain. A thinks that is too soon, but [...]

Other stuff

Posted July 11th, 2010 by candi

Now that I have some time on my hands, I can update more often. I’ll try to keep it to no more than twice a day. I am very pleased to report that I got a Distinction on my exam, so that equals a Distinction for the subject overall. I’m not sure if I’ll be [...]
