I’ve finally, finally been to see my primary care doctor (he’s been on vacation) and all is well. Okay, there is the small matter of an appointment with a gastroenterologist, a likely MRI, followed by the removal of my gall bladder, but as far as I’m concerned, all is right with the world.
I can – in moderation – renew my love affair with Mr. Cheese and sparingly break out the butter dish again. I won’t have to live out my remaining days on plain rice and dry turkey.
Can you imagine a world without a little Brie, or the occasional, very occasional juicy slab of prime rib? Neither could I.
But best of all, my time-travel to the days of Prohibition is over, so on my way home from the doctor’s yesterday I picked up a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and slapped that baby into the fridge. As I was preparing dinner, I poured myself a half glass and it went down just fine.
Funny thing, though. Tonight I thought about the pounds I’d dropped in the past three weeks and also realized I hadn’t missed alcohol all that much.
I had seltzer with dinner tonight.
Wonderful news about the restrictions being lifted.ReplyDelete
A half glass of wine from time to time sounds good. As does Brie. Cheese is a very big weakness for me.
Nice to hear you are so much better now. Cheese isn't a big deal with me, I love it but can leave it alone. But it took a scary episode in February to get me off the ice cream I'd been shovelling in.ReplyDelete
I've been having less alcohol in the evenings and haven't missed it all that much. I would hate to be told I couldn't have any, though. Glad you're better, even if there's a bit of uncomfortableness ahead. :-)ReplyDelete
It's hard to give up favorite foods (and drinks). I'm glad to hear you're feeling better and can take a nip now and then if you choose.ReplyDelete
bravo, bravo. It's those lost pounds that would ring my bell, but the rest ain't too bad either.ReplyDelete
When I added Lyrica for pain to my repertoire, I had to quit alcohol. Didn't miss it.ReplyDelete
