Paging Dr. Adcock

This last week we had a patient that came in with bursitis. A bursa is a fluid filled sac at a joint that helps to lubricate the joint. Well bursitis is when this bursa gets inflamed. Due to the inflammation, more fluid is made. This little sac then expands with excess fluid. Here is a picture I found online.

See the big knots on his elbows? Those are bursa that have become inflamed. You're probably thinking ok no big deal so what. Well to take care of these, the doctor has to aspirate it (drain it with a needle). OUCH!!!!

Well the doctor got everything set up and then while slapping the stool, said "have a seat." He walked me through the injection to numb it as well as aspirating it. WOOHOO!

Not a big deal, but one more thing I've done that only doctors can do.

I Secretly Married Josh Hamilton

So most of yall know that Eric and I are HUGE Texas Rangers fans. If you didn't know that, now you do. We use to go to games way back when we first started dating 7 1/2 years ago. That was well before they were good, so we didn't just jump on the bandwagon.

Last Tuesday when the Rangers won their first post-season series, we both shed a tear. We were so excited!!!! Eric said, "the smile on my face might just be as big as the one when you walked down the isle." That sure got him a nice look from me. He then responded, "The smile might just be bigger if they win the World Series." WHAT? haha

After they won Tuesday night, we jumped on stub hub to get tickets for the American League Championship Series. Eric and his dad went to so many games growing up just hoping for a good year. They went to a playoff game back in the day. Lets just say they've been waiting for this season for a long time. His parents got us tickets to Saturday's game, so we decided to drive to Dallas for a quick weekend trip. But wait it gets better.

I told Eric I get done on Friday at 12, so maybe we could leave around 3 if you can get off a little early. He looked at me and said, "But the game is at 7 on Friday, and I don't want to miss it." I then responded well we can listen to it on the radio. His response was, "But I want to watch it on tv." (with an ever so cute pouting bottom lip) So we left Kansas City Friday night at 10:45. Yep we drove all through the night, and made it to Greenville at 6:45 am on Saturday. We went to sleep right when we got there and slept until 9:30 am. Then it was time to get ready for the game.

If you didn't know. The Rangers WON Saturday!!!! WOOHOO!!!! It was such an amazing game. Here are some pictures from our quick trip to the ballpark.

Our seats were on the fourth row of the upper deck. They were really good seats. We could see everything that was going on plus we were in the shade.
We were super excited that the Rangers won!!!

What a great game!

On another note. I think I married Josh Hamilton! haha Not really. I have a little crush on Josh Hamilton. Eric laughs at me. He's an amazing player, and has a really great story. I tell Eric the only reason I have a crush on him is because he has blonde curly hair, blue eyes, and gets hurt running into outfield walls. Eric dislocated his big toe the day I met him trying to make a play in a college baseball game, and Josh Hamilton fractured a couple ribs while trying to make a play at Target Field. Here is a picture of Josh Hamilton for you to compare. Don't you think they look a little bit alike?


This is all in fun. I love you Eric!!!!

My goal is to look like her. Want to know my secret? P90X!!!!

I lost roughly 12 lbs for the wedding. Well now that we've been married for 7 1/2 months, I have gained back all 12 lbs plus some. Thanks sweetie!!! I weighed myself last Wed at the doctor's office and then again this past Monday. I had lost 1 lb!!!! I know it's not much but you gotta start some where.

We even took before pictures, but I won't be posting those until the end. I will post my before and after pictures to show you my results.

Last week Eric and I started P90X workouts. Then this Monday we decided to go ahead and add on the nutrition plan which is intense. The entire program is 90 days long. It's broken up into 30 day increments. After 30 days the workouts change so does the nutrition plan.

Here is what was on the menu for me today.
(Eric's menu looked the same except for his portions were larger)

6 egg white omelet with 1 oz fat free mozzarella cheese
2 pieces of turkey bacon
8 oz skim milk

Morning Snack:
protein snack bar (I like special k chocolate peanut butter)

6 oz of shrimp stir fry which had shrimp, onion, garlic, ginger, water chestnuts, and broccoli
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 oz cashews

Afternoon Snack:
1 fat free string cheese

6 oz chicken breast with pesto
1/2 cup zucchini
1 cup brown rice

So if you're a friend of mine here in KC, next time you see me just humor me. Make some comment about wow looks like you've lost weight please. Even if it's not true just say it to make me feel better haha. I always start workout programs with good intentions, but when I don't see results I give up.
