Believe it or not – I haven’t had pancakes for breakfast the past 2 mornings. And believe it or not – I’ve enjoyed the change, but it wasn’t out of my own will… I’ve had to fast after dinner to prepare for my 8AM doctor’s appointments so breakfasts have been on-the-go.
Tuesday morning I had a HIDA scan [pumped with IV contrast to look at how my gallbladder functions] and this morning I had an abdominal ultrasound. Neither of the appointments were all that unpleasant and they didn’t take as long as expected – double bonus! As I mentioned the other day , any news is good news at this point and I’ve got news to share…
I spoke to my doctor’s nurse this morning and after reviewing the results from both my endoscopy last week and the two procedures this week, everything looks a-ok [with the exception of the swelling of my stomach] – wahooo My doctor is supposed to call back later today to discuss what the next steps are, but it’s definitely a relief to start ruling things out!
Moving onto tastier topics, Tuesday’s eats. I don’t have any exciting new recipes to share – my eats have been pretty bland, whatever my stomach can handle – but I hope to get back into the creative cooking groove soon. Evidently I went bananas on Tuesday… Either I was cravinggg potassium or I unconsciously felt the need to eat as many of the 16 bananas I got for $1 over the weekend.

's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl but a bit saltier - yum] , & a caramel cappuccino from Starbucksgrazed throughout the afternoonfresh veggies, grapefruit slices, plain Chobani , Garden Lites veggie souffle, original popchips , & a mini VitaCakean apple, light string cheese, & Joe’s O’s + pistachios [are the bestios]veggie-filled saladdessert oats – cottage cheese + hazelnut Torani syrup + multigrain hot cereal + Go Lean + banana chocolate chip VitaToprice cakes topped with a banana + dark chocolate chips
