2 major life issues down...

I'm absolutely exhausted as I write this. I don't even know why I am writing while I am this tired. I should just go to sleep. But I'm here, so I may as well finish what I came to say, right?

I got 2 major life issues settled today. One is I found a place to live, and I can pick up the keys tomorrow. I kinda got the place on a total whim, but I like it, and I'm excited to move in. Second, I finally got in to see the liver/kidney specialist doctor today. I got weighed as I came in. I've lost 15 lbs since Christmas, most of it thanks to Body by Stomach Flu this weekend. Either way, I was happy and did a little happy dance jig. Later when the doctor diagnosed my bizarre condition in just 10 minutes I complained that he had to at least pretend to spend 5 more minutes with me to make the 5 weeks of waiting to see him worth it. He laughed and said, "We can weigh you again, you seemed to enjoy that!" For those who care, the new supposed condition (the doctor was confidant, I am not) is that the valve/duct from the liver to the kidney is spasming. He's put me on some muscle relaxant combined with Valium. And I have to go cold turkey off the 9 weeks of Lortab. I am "clean" right now, but took the new pill over an hour ago. I'm sleepy, but still in quite a bit of pain. I'm not pleased. I'll give him 3 days before I throw a fit. After all, I still have some stomach flu problems to work through. Maybe I can be down 20 lbs by President's Day?

Anyway, after many very rough days, today was finally a great day. There is still a lot to do in the coming days, but I'm happy. And exhausted.
