Still Waiting :(

Yesterday, my doctor's office called & left a message on my cellphone, but since I didn't have it turned on all day, I didn't get the message until last night. I have no clue why they didn't call my home phone! ARGH! So I called them first thing this morning to see if they got the results of my MRI in & the lady said that my doctor wants me to come in so he can go over them with me, but they don't have any appointments available until tomorrow! ARGH AGAIN!!! Do they not know that I haven't been able to sleep because I hate waiting for results? Do they not know that I'm nervous as heck?? Do they not know that I'm impatient??? And now I'm scared even more because if they came back normal, wouldn't they just be able to tell me that over the phone? Why would he want to see me to "go over the results" if there wasn't anything wrong? Yeah, now I'm really scared :( They're going to call me today if they get a cancellation, but otherwise, I won't find out the results now until tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. Thank-you so much for all the prayers & please, keep them coming!

In good news, last night I tried on a pair of jeans that I haven't worn in probably over 12 years! AND THEY FIT!!! Jim couldn't believe that I even kept them that long & honestly, neither could I, but they were my all-time favorite jeans :) So I made Jim grab the camera & take a pic. As of today, I'm officially down 55.2 pounds!!! And only .6 of a pound to go till I hit my halfway mark! I honestly have no clue how I'm even still losing weight with not going to the gym that much right now (I've only worked out once in the past 2 1/2 weeks & that was a very short work-out do to the pain in my shoulder). But I'm definitely not going to complain :)

Tomorrow, I'm doing a Family-2-Family Sale at the gym & hoping that some scrapbookers belong to the gym as I've boxed up a LOT of embellishments & paper that I want to get rid of, along with some households items. Thank goodness Jim has been helping me get prepared for the sale....he has been such a big help these past few weeks since I hurt my shoulder! And he said he'll stay there & do the sale for me tomorrow when I have to leave to go to the doctor. Dang, it's no wonder why I love that man!

Remember that artificial Christmas tree we bought on Black Friday? Well, it quickly went back to Home Depot! We were putting it up the other night & fluffing out the branches when I stood back to look at it & something looked funny, but I couldn't pinpoint exactly what it was. I kept looking at it & looking at it & then it dawned on me.....the lights were different colors! And they were CLEAR! The ones on the top had a yellowish tint to them. So Jim got his real tree once again :) We found a Balsam Fir at Home Depot that was about 8' tall for $26.00! And we literally bought it 'sight unseen' since it was already wrapped up & frozen with snow on it. I picked it out for the top & so far, it doesn't look too bad.....it's gonna be a few days until all the branches fall into place, though.

That's all for now. Here's hoping for good news tomorrow!

Maybe it's just a complicated thing to talk about on the phone and that's why he wants you to come in. It doesn't mean that it's really bad!
Good luck tomorrow!

How frustrating! Still praying that it's nothing to be worrying about, and praying that you get some peace...
Don't forget to post some pics of your pretty tree as soon as you get it up and decorated. Funny story about the artificial one though ---- ok, maybe NOT so funny huh??

Hopefully he just needs to pay the winter taxes on his cottage and that is why you need to go in for the results!

Doctors can be so frustrating... getting you worked up over nothing most of the time...

You look great - congrats on the weight loss

Doctors like to "see" everyone so they can bill your insurance (or you if you don't have insurance) for an office visit.

They don't make any money just by talking on the phone. I know it's crazy but doctors are in business to make money.

Good luck

You look FABULOUS!!! Congrats on achieving your fitness goals!

I really wish dr's offices would be more sensitive to making ppl wait for results, then making phone calls like the one they made to you. They don't realize how anxious ppl get about results.
