Good for you Sandy! No fun though. My Mom had that and learned to eat around it. Here's the website- http://www.ismacs.net/newhome/models.html to the New Home website-it's under a new name now, but that's how I dated my machine.Kind of like Geneolgy of sewing-LOL. Hope you feel better soon!

Well Sandy I hope you feel better :) I've been suffering with a really bad backache for three days...I have no clue why it is hurting so bad..
I really don't like going to the doctors so I'm waiting it out..

Bless your heart. I have had a few bouts of that myself and know how painful it can be. Hope you are on the mend very very soon!

The weight loss is a plus, but i do hate it when someone messes with what i can and can't eat.Feel better soon!!

Dorothy said...

Doctors take all the fun out of eating! :-) I know that is painful, my whole family has some form of stomach problem or other.
Hope you get to feeling better soon,
Dorothy

Hope you are feeling better soon...I know they make a popcorn without hulls if you are a die-hard popcorn lover. You can do it! Just glad you are A-O.K. Good luck!

Poor you! Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Hope you feel better realy soon Sandy! Yes, if you have to feel sick at least you get the benefit of weight loss! But oh boy...I have such a love/hate with food!
Wishing you luck!

NOT a good way to drop 9. So sorry to hear you have been ill but at least it can be treated and then avoided! Hope you are on the mend in a hurry!!

LBP said...

Oh Dear! Sorry to hear you are under the weather. I can no longer have popcorn either because of my migraines. I still miss it but it is worth giving it up because I feel so much better. Good luck with your new lifestyle change!

Blessings

Oh my, I certainly know your pain. 2 years ago I ended up having surgery so I will hope that you will avoid that one. I found that popcorn, peanuts and fruit seeds (blackberries,strawberries,raspberries) were the worst culprits. Follow the prescribed diet, take the antibiotic and hopefully all will be well. I will keep you in my prayers...oh wait, you're already there!
I have been sick (again) :( this week with fever and headaches but today I feel pretty good. I'd like to erase the past 6 weeks for us. The good news. Is that David is doing great with his therapy and might graduate to a cane soon.
Please take care of yourself my friend.

I am not familiar with that condition. I'll have to look it up. Take care! ♥

Mecky said...

I hope that you feel better soon. Not a fun way to lose 9 pounds. I do think I found your 9 pounds, so if you would like to have them back, I will send them right over.

Oh Sandy,

So sorry to hear that. My mother in law had diverticulosis. I know the one you have is more painful. Hope you are feeling better!

Hugs,
Debbie

Lady Linda said...

So Sorry Sandy! Not fun at all. Follow Dr's orders now.
Hope you will be feeling better soon.

Ohhhh - big HUGS and hope you feel better soon. It's no fun to have digestion problems. I have a few myself. Sometimes ginger tea helps - probably just because I like it and it calms me down.

I will be keeping you in my prayers!! Take care and happy sweet weekend to you! xo Heather

Oh honey, I had a colon resection back in December for diverticular disease. I felt so much better after the surgery because I was in constant pain and kept having infections. My doctor told me that I could have nuts and popcorn because that wouldn't cause flares, but I was always afraid every time I ate. Hope you feel much better really soon!

Oh Sandy! Thank goodness! I was so worried about you. It's good to know about the foods to avoid, thanks for sharing all the information. Take your meds and get lots of rest! Be well dear friend! Elizabeth

Oh, Sandy :(

Darling books in the last post.

Oh, Sandy, I'm so sorry you have been feeling poorly. Diverticulitis is no walk in the park. My sweet neighbor has it and I am always so careful to not add nuts in things I make for him.
It's good that you are looking for the silver lining...nine pounds lost is a good thing.
I do hope you start feeling better with the antibiotics helping out.
Blessings and prayers,
Carolynn xo
