Topic: LET'S RESTART THE IL. SITE

Hi e1,

Wow, no1 posts here anymore. I wish we would start again. It seems like instead of informative conversations e1 was just posting what they ate or did the day before. I'm almost 13yrs out and I'd like to hear from some1 telling how their life has changed. I'm in Woodstock. I had my DS at the U of C with Dr. Prachand. Dr. Heydari in Huntley does wls and in the last few yrs started doing the ds.

Hi, Donna - I'm new to this site. Doesn't seem very active in Illinois. I just had RNY this past November. Have you ever gone to the annual meeting? There is one in Cali this year. I'm curious and might want to go...

Topic: RE: WLS Friendly PCP in the Northwest Suburbs

My PCP at Edward Hospital's Plainfield location is very WLS friendly, but far from the NW burbs.  Her name is Neha Shah.

I follow a ketogenic diet post-op. I also have a diagnosis of binge eating disorder. Feel free to ask me about either!

I need to qualify my prior post by saying that do not look at me to continue the posting on this forum because I have had an extremely hard 18 months. I have an ill husband and my life has been worked to the bone.  I have not had one member of this board send me a PM asking what has been going on with me and where have I been. I retired last month. Hah - retire NOT it has been appt after appt for health issues. 

I am not sure where you all are but that is not how this board has functioned in the past. OLLIE, OLLIE OXEN FREE, COME OUT, COME OUT WHERE EVER YOU ARE! 

A flipant comment in a daily roll call will not make me come out. Be more personal and send me a message!

Good Morning, did we all get wakened up by the storms last night?

I am slightly peeved with Waste Management. When they emphtied the containers this morning, before 6, they left the lids open. No problem, other then when I went out to bring them in, they both had over an inch of water in them. All they needed to do was flip the lids back. I noticed I wasn't the only one as I looked up the street.

Nancy, the start and stop of PT, is because of the insurance companies. They dictate how many treatments a person can receive at a given time.

I am heading to the bank and lunch with friends. I lead such a dull life during the summer.

Have a great day and stay dry,

Hugs,

Dear Watson:

First, congratulations on your level of motivation, unbridled candor and numerous successes along the way. Three cheers! Bravo! Kudos...and thanks!

I am now confronted with the prospect of possible bilateral total knee replacement surgery and would welcome your advice. Maybe a Dos & Dont's "Top 10 List," like the ones that made David Letterman famous?!

Also, I would welcome you sharing the good, bad and ugly if your experiences with Dr. Puri, because he is in practice here in Chicago where I live.

again, congratulations and many thanks!

Zinzen

Hello All 

It was a relatively quiet weekend for me.  Of course with Rick not here, it takes away the wish to go do something other than to go visit him which of course I did.  

We finally are seeing better improvement in the PT dept.  They seem to work on him and then forget him for weeks/months on end.  Well, they are back to giving regular PT!  I do hope that this time we see the progress necessary to get him able enough to come home!  He is at the last step and it is so frustrating that they quit working on him.  We get all kinds of excuses, staff changes, shift changes, therapist changes etc.  Whatever the excuse of the day is.  It doesn't help to push back.  GRR. 

Being back at work is good.  Half time is great.  Love the hours.  People are so thankful to have english speaking people back.  It is nice to be appreciated.  

The cats are semi behaving.  They are still up to their adventures and mischiefs.  I just shake my head at what they come up with.  It saddens me that Claude at around 15 is starting to show his age and is getting clingy which has me concerned that he may be at the end of his days.  He is such a special cat.  He is also getting grey.  I am not looking forward to that day.  

So my routine is just that, a routine.  Not much excitement here, just trying to stay afloat on a sea of challenges.  

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hi, We had a quiet weekend. We went out for dinner on Friday, stayed home on Saturday. Went to Yorkville Sunday, and worked around the house on Monday.

Streator's celebration isn't until this coming weekend. I know, it is weird.

We have been grilling out as much as possible. Hubert wants burgers on the grill tonight, to go with corn on the cob, potato salad and fruit salad. Its ok by me.

Have a great evening,

Hugs,

 

 

Lisa
