A Medical Update

For those of you who are interested, my gallbladder is doing much, much better! As long as I stick pretty closely to this no-fat diet my friend (a doctor) has me on, I do alright. If I want to eat ice cream, I now know this: Take a Zantac first, otherwise I will be in major pain.
I AM getting rather sick of soup and ramon noodles, but have lost a few pounds in the process, and am happy about THAT small victory.

In other news, I stretched my arms above my head this morning and heard some nasty pops coming from my neck and shoulder. There was some extreme pain and I discovered VERY quickly that I couldn't move my head to the right and had difficulty moving my arm as well. After an emergency visit to the chiropracter, I am able to move some, but still have quite a bit of pain. We will see what tomorrow holds.
I apparently crushed a nerve while stretching, and will have to make a few more visits to Dr. Craig to get this neck of mine back into adjustment.
Sigh.
When it rains, it pours.
Say a prayer, please. :)

Maybe the fact that lifting my right arm is painful will cause me to be less likely to lift that delicious looking cookie to my mouth. Who knows, maybe I will lose a little more weight because of this!
