Six Months post Surgery

Last week was my 6th month check up.  When Linda & I went to the Dietitian for the first time a month after my surgery, the goals the gave me was 276 pounds at 6 months and at a year, 239 pounds.  During the visit when they recalculated the target weights, the numbers were different. They wanted me to be at 257 pounds at 6 months and at a year 206.


So based on our first meeting, I hit my numbers, with these new numbers, I’m 17 pounds heavier then I should be.   I personally can’t see me hitting 206 but who knows.

The good news is that I am still doing well. I have very little stomach issues. I am gaining more energy (still pretty anemic but I’m seeing a Hematologist for that issue). Linda & Chris are planning to get me clothes for Christmas (50 inch waist with a 28 inch inseam, a 3X in polos & t-shirts and a 20″ neck size for dress shirts if you are wondering).

I’ll continue to keep everyone posted. Thank you for the support and well wishes! I appreciate each of you so much!

E Street Shuffle meets Set Lusting Bruce

Ken Rosen is an amazing blogger. His blog https://estreetshuffle.com/ provides a daily dose of Springsteen history, he shares interesting covers (both by Bruce and of Bruce’s songs) and deep dives into Springsteen’s catalog. Ken has been a guest on the podcast multiple times. He wrote a wonderful write up about the podcast for Backstreet’s website. He is a wonderful friend and a great supporter of the podcast.

Ken and I have never had the chance to meet until now. Last night, Ken took time away from visiting his new Granddaughter to break break with me. We had a wonderful time sharing stories and enjoying each other’s company. Hopefully we will continue to have the chance to visit when he visits his Daughter and her family.

Three out of Four – is bad!

The Dallas Cowboys are sitting at the top of the NFC East at 7 – 4. That is the good news but the bad news, they have lost 3 out of 4 games. All good teams go through poor stretches and I had picked the team to go 10 – 7 so my prediction is still in play.

My hope is that the team gets the head on straight and win 4 out of their next 6 and get on a roll. At this point, I’m predicting that they get into the playoffs and win 2 games to get into the NFC Championship Game. Then we will see what happens next.
