One Week Later

Wow. I can't believe my last post was from the hospital. I have a vague memory of demanding my dad take me to the visitor waiting room where there was a computer so that I could check my email, facebook, and post to the blog. Oh I do not miss those bizarre walks through the hospital corridors, holding onto the back of my gown with one hand and my IV with the other, while I shuffled away, sometimes with my Dad, sometimes with a nurse, but always drooling.

Yes, I seem to have developed a drooling problem since surgery. This would, of course, be solely due to the fact that my lower lip is partially numb and my chin is completely numb. It's never really a problem when I am in bed, but when I am up and about I start drooling again. The worst was when I was still in the hospital and I would have to go to the bathroom and would sit down and the next thing I know I am drooling all over my legs. This then created a very difficult problem because my right hand was connected to all my IVs, while the left hand, significantly less advanced (I am not at all ambidextrous) than my right, struggled to balance the tasks of stopping the drooling and reaching for toilet paper. Ahh those were the days...

Since I have been home, things have been getting better, very slowly. I am taking each day at a time, noticing minor decreases in the swelling, or that I have more energy, or I can almost sleep through the night. The crazy thing is that the surgery was seven hours long. Seven hours! Which of course took a lot out of me, in addition to all the meds I was on right after surgery (morphine included... mmm narcotics... actually it made me want to vomit all the time which is difficult when your jaw is closed shut, so I hated it). I think the first week was so difficult as my body was not only adjusting to the new bone structure and subsequent pain, but trying to recover from the intense surgery itself.

Now, it's been over a week and I have become somewhat accustomed to spending my days doing a whole lot of nothing... it's pretty boring. The hardest part is the food--getting enough calories, protein, fiber, and all the other nutrients I need through only liquids. I am drinking a lot of Slim Fast, Ensure, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Odwalla Protein drinks, Stonyfield yogurt smoothies, and of course... tons of soup. All the food commercials on TV are starting to drive me nuts! I am already fantasizing about that first morsel of solid food I get to eat. Mmmmm delicious. Until then, I am a week in, which means only seven to go. Oh. My. God.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

In 1959 phentermine first received approval from the FDA as an appetite suppressing drug. Phentermine hydrochloride then became available in the early 1970s. It was previously sold as Fastin from King Pharmaceuticals for SmithKline Beecham, however in 1998 it was removed from the market. Medeva Pharmaceuticals sells the name brand of phentermine called Ionamin and Gate Pharmaceuticals sells it as Adipex-P. Phentermine is also currently sold as a generic. Since the drug was approved in 1959 there have been almost no clinical studies performed. The most recent study was in 1990 which combined phentermine with fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine and became known as Fen-Phen.[citation needed]
In 1997 after 24 cases of heart valve disease in Fen-Phen users, fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine were voluntarily taken off the market at the request of the FDA. Studies later proved that nearly 30% of people taking fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine had abnormal valve findings. The FDA did not ask manufacturers to remove phentermine from the market.
[url=http://www.buyphentermine1.com]buy phentermine online[/url] Phentermine is still available by itself in most countries, including the U.S. However, because it is similar to amphetamines, it is classified as a controlled substance in many countries (including Australia). Internationally, phentermine is a schedule IV drug under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances.[1] In the United States, it is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act.
Looking forward, Phentermine is being studied with another medication for obesity. The experimental appetite suppressant drug Qnexa is a mixture of Phentermine and Topiramate.
Phentermine, in doses clinically used, works on the hypothalamus portion of the brain to release norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger that signals a fight-or-flight response, reducing hunger. Phentermine works outside the brain as well to release epinephrine or adrenaline causing fat cells to break down stored fat, but the principal basis of efficacy is hunger-reduction. At high doses, phentermine releases serotonin and dopamine as well, but such doses are never used in clinical medicine.

Everything about horse betting

Yes, horse racing does have its problems and challenges, but it also has a lot going for it. It's the only sport offering legalized wagering in the majority of the United States and across most of the world. Why it's even legal to bet on horse racing in China where basic human rights are hard to come by.
[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horce racing[/url]
There are however many controversies surrounding the horse industry. During races, some jockeys use a crop to hit the horse in the rump to direct their effort and possibly run faster. Based on the most detailed statistical study of whipping ever carried out, it is actually counterproductive and slows the horse down causing them to become distracted and dangerously go off course.


Will Barbaro be the next Triple Crown winner? He has the breeding and the talent, but as of this writing twenty horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown only to fail at Belmont. Twenty five more have won two of the three races, but maybe this year...

[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horse racing strategy[/url]
Brother Derek with Alex Solis up finished in a dead heat for fourth in the Derby, 9 1/2 lengths back after being steadied twice. With a career record of 6 wins out of 9 starts (3 out of 4 this year) Brother Derek had 4 straight wins before the Derby.

Traditional banking has always been a brick and mortar building where you go to deposit or withdraw money.

With the popularity of the Internet and the power it gives people to take control of their lives, many traditional banks have created banking Internet web pages where customers could transfer money, set up bill payments recurring or otherwise, quickly check items that have cleared, and many other functions that can be accessed 24 hours per day 7 days a week.

Since the whole idea of banking Internet is to make banking as easy as possible, most banking Internet sites will allow you to make a transfer from a brick and mortar bank to the banking Internet site as often as you like with no charge or a small fee.

When you utilize banking Internet options you are able to access your account, move money, pay bills, and any number of things from any computer with Internet access worldwide.
[url=http://pcinternetbanking.com]Online Banking Features[/url]
Historically banks were institutions that held your money under lock and key.

The banks also benefit from a lesser need for staff due to the migration to internet banking where customers serve themselves.

To help the growth and assist customers to make the change, many traditional banks offer minimal fee or completely free transfers to help customers migrate to their online banking service.
[url=http://pcinternetbanking.com]Online Banking[/url]
Paying bills, transferring funds and just plain monitoring your account are all possible with minimal stress whether you are ravelling, holidaying or working anywhere in the world.

Let's start in the past and work forward - seems to be fairly logical. Starting just before the Matt Busby era at United my first selection is Jack Rowley. He joined United before Busby came along. Though not the whole story, naturally a striker is measured to some extent by his goal tally. Rowley managed to net 211 times in 424 games for United before leaving the club in 1955. His tally of 211 makes him one of only 3 players to break the 200 mark. manchester united [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]arsenal football[/url] To be perfectly honest, Manchester United has the kind of rich and accomplished sports history that can make any native son or daughter of Manchester proud. They have been one of the most successful football clubs in English football history, winners of the FA Premier League/Football League 15 times and the FA Cup 11 times. In addition, Manchester United has also won the League Cup twice, the European Cup twice, the UEFA Cup Winners Cup once, the Intercontinental Cup once and the European Super Cup once. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]berbatov[/url] Hopefully this article has given an informative insight into the history of the Manchester United Shirt, and should you be asked on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" for the colour scheme of the Newton Railways Club shirt, you won't need to phone a friend!
