Hubby went to the doctor for a sinus infection. When he came home he told me that the doctor also prescribed Mer1d1a. I tried to be positive about this, but I must admit I'm a little leery of prescription weight loss medication. I guess my concern is that a lot of people think these pills are a magic cure that will turn them into Ha11e Berry or Brad P1tt overnight. This doesn't happen and people get disappointed and depressed. Hubby's doctor was realistic with him and told him he could expect to lose 20-30 pounds. This would be enough to improve his health and make him feel better, which is the main point. I know I'm going to be as supportive as possible and help him however I can.
Related to this, last week I got a letter from the family of the donor who gave me the tissue that replaced my vertebra. I had tears in my eyes as I read the letter from the wife who tragically lost her sweet, gentle husband and father of her children. But she said she was so glad that my life has improved because of the gift he was able to give me, because he was the kind of guy who was always thinking of others.
That's all I can think of right now. I feel like I just threw a bunch of scattered ramblings together and called it a post, but that's pretty much the state of my mind today.
