More re: Mrs. Dweet

Last week my love again saw her bariatric surgeon - the one who first found a problem in her lungs last spring - and he has agreed to again consider by-pass surgery for her in about 90 days if she is first able to pass a few other tests, or re-tests, and meet some conditions. Since short peoples' weight impinges more stringently on their lung capacities - and the bottoms of her lungs are clearer than the upper quadrants - this was good news! Not a cure for PAP, perhaps, but an encouragement as to the possibility of breathing easier post-surgery as the weight rolls off.

Speaking of which, I'm down about 90 pounds since early October. And feeling great - except for some sore ab muscles in the area of my other (intestinal) surgery - due I think to stubborness while unloading a few heavy objects after a Costco run late last week. Ah, the perils of bulk shopping!

Glad to hear things are moving in a positive direction!

By the way, "Journeyman" is me, "Q". I'm working on some big changes to be implemented at the end of the month, but I've already changed personas. The reason for the choice of name will become clear in due course.

Thanks for your encouragement. Best wishes on the forthcoming changes. I've been reading everything - and enjoying most of it - but holding off on commenting (when I can) until I see a divine purpose for speaking up.
