We missed #WorldSelfieDay Yesterday, so Maisie and I (and my son) made up for it today lol
The best ever! I cried! I’m such a Beatles fan… and a huge sentimental sap.
Megan, the social worker, called back not even an hour later with a reply!!
1. they used to let you take your body parts home with you, if you signed a waiver of some sort- but now you are no longer allowed to do so due to health and hygiene laws.
2. Megan and I then wondered what the hospital would rule (I like this chick) if, say, someone from an Asian religion had this surgery and needed the part back due to their belief in progressing in their Afterlife.
That was some interesting banter. I really like this office.
I speculated that it would probably be a state’s law and hospital policy call.
For example, in the state of Michigan, you are allowed to opt out of vaccinations due to religious reasons.
Megan agreed. I mean, you could possible do someone irreversible harm by incinerating their spleen or what-have-you and not allowing them to sew it up in an embroidered cloth, simply because they’d believe they were not going to the Hereafter because they didn’t have all their bits.
That could mean a lawsuit.
I then absolutely assured her that they could have my troublesome uterus, as I didn’t want the damned thing, and that this conversation in no way reflected my personal beliefs.
She laughed and told me I needed to go to law school and come work at her hospital.
Today is the day before the summer solstice, the last day for spring cleaning.
The day before the longest day of the year… Happy Birthday to Summer and everything else wonderful!
I almost always listen to the Beatles and other sundry oldies, like the Kinks and Elis Regina on this day, for some odd reason.
Here’s my playlist this year:
My morning music today:
Am on day 1 of another 1-3 day fast. The wasp bite is necessitating some inflammation busting, immune system assistance. My epi pen will not be available until Walgreens can locate more, so I have to be careful about future stings for now.
I took my blood pressure meds this morning, as it is finally elevated again.
Anyway, back to weight gain…. drumroll, please: I gained 5 lbs back overnight! Total weight loss from initial 6 day fast minus weight gain= 9 lbs in 6 days (after refeed). It was initially 14 lbs, but I knew a majority was water weight.
Still, not too shabby.
Also, my Fitbit Versa somehow got stuck and didn’t reset at midnight last night. I am currently in Fitbit limbo and we tried to reset it, but can’t.
Update- it updated the next day at midnight.
Day 2 and I lost 2 lbs, which brought it down to 11 lbs total in 8 days.
I broke fast after day 2 and will do intermittent again starting tomorrow.
I am a bit improved from wasp issue, now dealing with a bit of sciatica.
Spring cleaning the house currently, as my nephew from Palau is coming to spend his leave from the US Army with us. He’s been a year in Iraq, poor thing.
NOT bad for almost 50 years old, huh?
I noticed that my skin responded really well to this. I am super stoked about it!
