Paging Dr. McDreamy

So I met with the surgeon yesterday and despite the title of the post he was NOT Dr. McDreamy...and yes, I still watch Grey's in the HOPES that it will get better.

Nice guy...gave me the info I needed and informed me that surgery is not my only option, albeit the best option but I can see if I can hold off until the first of the year and change my eating habits and life style and it may be something that I can live with. We shall see. I am not feeling too hot right now but it could have something to do with how high my blood pressure got while on the way to work with the constant stupid emails coming in and traffic. Satan's Pants say What.

So now I am going on a low fat diet to improve my body and digestive system in the hopes that I do not have to go under the knife to remove a non-essential part of my body. Why is it even in there if we don't really need it?

I am clearly picking the right time for dieting...seeing as how the three pounds of cookie dough I had to order from a co-worker's kid came in yesterday and is sitting in my freezer. Thankfully it is frozen so I cannot just dive into it at any time. The defrost period is always a good time to collect your thoughts and move away from the cookie dough. Now if the power goes out for a long time all bets are off!

We are taking Owen to see Santa at Phipps on Friday. I am hopeful he does not cry but he is getting worse with his separation anxiety and has come to realize that strangers are scary. I mean what baby would not love a chuckly man with lots of white eye brows and big long white beard? And he has a cute Chrismoose sweater and everything. We shall see how this goes.

Until then.

The Gall

So Sunday night into Monday morning I swore I was giving birth to a devil spawn. Seriously, Rosemary's Baby type pain. Jeff takes me to the emergency room after hours of screaming pain to find out that I have gall stones and that this will require that I have my gall bladder removed. Blah Blah Blah, low fat diet, blah blah blah, can hold off until the first of the year. Blah Blah Blah, no fun Christmas sweets this holiday season. (yea right...wink wink)

So I will indeed keep you all updated on this medical delight.

Owen was an adorable Sock Monkey and as promised here are some pictures to gush over. We had fun at the Festival only it appeared as if Owen was not really feeling it because he was kind of tired and fussy. He is still sporting an awesome cold and runny nose so I would think that being outside in the cold was not his idea of a good time.

Today I will be going to Rock the Vote and hopefully do not have to Rock in Line for too long. Owen will be attending his first official Presidential election. I HATE election's. I get so nervous that I toss and turn and watch tv all night. I am resigned to the fact that I may not receive the outcome I would like but one cannot dwell on this or hide in our bomb shelters. We work hard to rock the vote again in four more years.
