Weigh In #7

152.8 lbs
That's a 0.8 lb loss for this week!

I'll take it... No much to report - I've been spending the last 3 days taking care of my fiancé who just went for knee surgery. Everything went well. Actually, not that well, because he scared me to death before the surgery.

We're in the waiting room with several people in hospital gowns all waiting for surgery too... They call him up to get is IV hooked up, he comes back and sits beside me, we chat, we chat... everything seems normal... He says he's sleepy and gives me his glasses to put away, which I did, then I saw from the corner of my eye that he was leaning to the side, as if he was jokingly pretending to go to sleep... but I soon realized that it wasn't normal, he wasn't responsive and he started shaking a bit. His eyes were open but he wasn't 'there' anymore... He looked dead...

So I yelled for help while trying to hold him up, creating a panic in the waiting room... Two nurses got there so fast I can only remember them 'appearing'... they held him up and put some cold wash clothes on his forehead and neck - the one nurse told me that everything was ok, he had just fainted... She talked to him and he eventually responded... OMG... The nurse started joking around to calm everybody down a bit ''It's just because it's a man... Every day there's at least one man who faints on me...'' she said that he was probably very nervous, and hungry, so when the drugs kicked in it made him faint...
So he got the special 'comfy/reclining' chair for the rest of the wait... :)

That was the scariest moment of my life - just the feeling that he was 'gone'... ugh... I was in several car accidents, had lots of other moments that could have scared me to death, but this was by far the worst... But apparently it's common and it's nothing to worry about - I had never seen someone faint before - pretty spectacular :)

But now he's home and resting, he's doing his little knee exercises... I am sad that I can't be there all day with him - but I have to work :(

Anyways... that's all I can talk about right now, because that's the only thing on my mind...

Hope you all had a nice Halloween weekend!:)
