  1. Hey, sexy. :) I'm doing good. I sent you an email. :cool:

  2. JimM

    I'm in hiding. :P Actually, I'm taking a sabbatical from the Internet... just stopping by briefly to say hi. How's it going, sweets? :)

  3. Hi there, new friend! :)

    Hi Andie! Thanks for the compliments on my before and after pic! I'm doing really well, thanks. I'm now 6 weeks post-op from the abdominoplasty and feeling better every day. I'm back working out at the gym now and I'm back up to 45 minutes on the elliptical. The incision is healing well and I have virtually no swelling at this point. I see that you had a tummy tuck recently, too (and you had 1 lb. more removed than I did)... how are you doing?

  5. Hi Av! Happy Easter to you, too!

  6. I am really glad the info I found might be of help to you, Kristine. It looks like the info you originally posted here was a big help to me, as well. I took your info in with me to my doctor appt. a couple weeks ago and my physician ordered some blood tests to see where my calcium and vit. D levels were at. I heard back a couple of days ago that My vit. D. levels came back as below normal so I'm scheduled for a DEXA scan on May 6th and a follow-up visit with him on the 26th to go over the results. He also started me on a drug called Calcitriol. I never would have known about this subject had you not started this thread so I'm very grateful to you for sharing what you've found and making us all aware of this. Thank you! I'll be anxious to know how things progress with you and your treatment, Kristine. I''ll let you know how my DEXA scan turns out in May when I see the doctor on the 26th to review the results.
  7. No problem, Phoenix. I haven't been on here as much lately, either. Here's an article from Mayo Clinic regarding bone loss and, among other things, calcium injections. It was written by the endo that saw me when I started the whole weight loss process: Osteoporosis treatment puts brakes on bone loss Also, from what I've found, there's a nasal spray that can be used, instead of the injection (actually the drug is available in either form)... it's called Calcitonin. I'm really hoping you get a good resolution to this whole issue.
  8. Damn, Jenn! I'm really sorry to hear you're going through all of this *&^%. Try to console yourself with the fact that a.) you didn't ultimately marry this numbskull and REALLY screw your life up, b.) maybe you can find someone else to sublease, and c.) this won't last forever. I know September is a long way off but it WILL come in 6 months. At least it's not a whole year. ::HUGS::
  9. Tara, Would you change any of your numbers if the bed were a 14 minute bed?
  10. You're hot to me, mistymee. My wife feels the same way you do, Kel - she's 53 and it seems like only guys in their 70's are hitting on her. Needless to say, it doesn't make her happy. It doesn't help things if a much-younger woman flirts with me (I'm 43) in front of her...
  11. Not to worry, I'd say you're WELL on your way to hotness already.
  12. Wow, what a gorgeous woman! You are an absolute knockout!
  13. Happy Birthday, Kimber! ::smooch!::

  14. Very true. I'm humble and self-effacing, too. That's definitely a part of it. But nowhere NEAR all of it.
  15. I'll keep that in mind. I'm in a place right now where it's cold, windy, overcast, and rainy so sunshine is a rare commodity here today. I think I need to buy a ticket to Florida!
