Still up in the air...

I've got good news and possibly bad news... Which do you want first?

Well I'm always a bad news first kinda gal.  Bad news is on my second blood test, I had elevated liver enzyme levels. I really don't quite get what it all could mean - but what it means practically is it looks like my liver is not functioning as well as it should.  When I got the blood taken last time I had been fasting for probably about 24 hours, so my doc wonders if that had something to do with it.  And yes, 24 hours. I'm not really eating, and I know it's not good.  Anyways yesterday I just happened to be here at my parents house when my doc called and spoke to mum - he didn't want to scare me but wanted me to come in for more blood tests that would all focus on liver function.  I was obviously really scared, crying and all that... They both reassured me a bit, but he also did say that if things weren't better on this test he'd be worried my liver wouldn't be able to handle the anesthetic.  I wasn't fasting for this blood test - I had had an egg-white and veggie omelette than am and he thought that was probably good... Oy.  So I'm in major stress zone. MAJOR.   We'll find out more monday morning. 

So you need some good news now, don't ya?  Well I'm down another 5lbs - I'm at 249 now.  I've officially lost 21lbs since the consultation in mid January, 11 since the start of pre-op ...  Which was 11 days ago.  

I really hope everything is OK with me... Mostly I just hope I can have the surgery on Wednesday.. I couldn't do pre-op any longer than this, I don't have it in me, emotionally.
