Thanks Craig, you are awesome and an inspiration!
Erin, hubby thinks the trip is a stupid waste of time and money.
I am going to see if I can find that msn article you are talking about, I'd like to read it.
I hope your body cooperates and stops hurting you! May the pred keep the joints from hurting and control some of that Chrons flare as well.
Daughter is FINALLY all better - yeah! Her belly is back in business, the hives are completely gone.
I am just sick of looking at myself and sick of the weight - but it is so difficult to work so hard at trying to loose weight and not be thrown a little encouragement by the jeans or the scale, ya know? I'm gonna do the best I can and try to get exercise in as well if my joints and schedule will cooperate.
sorry Duck....there will be no appointment...i'll explain later.
it's a mess. i'll post when i'm not upset over it.
Hey there, sorry for the long delay in posts. I'm up and down with joint pain. Not terrible, thank goodness (knock on wood), but doing what I can. The diet is still going (trying at least), I haven't exercised in a couple of days due to foot pain (it actually has a sprained feeling to it.) The belly's acting up the last 2 days and let's just say it's a good thing we buy TP at Costco. Needless to say, after 10 days of dieting, I've only dropped about 1 1/2 lbs at best.
We had horrible rain on Monday. Yesterday it was 37 degrees when my daughter left for school, today it was 63. It didn't get up to 60 a few days ago and today it hit 80. We have a santa ana with really hot winds, and I actually feel worse than I did on Monday with all the rain! I have a new pain as well. Don't know if I strained somthing wrestling my son in to the bath the other day or something else is going on, It's my back left side of the spine area. seems just to the right of where my spleen would be. I should probably apply one of those patches I have on it at this point. The belly ache is aggrivating it, I think as well.
Saw PCP for follow up on Tuesday.Got a flu shot (first time ever - could that cause the bowel problems I'm having?) Bloodwork showed liver enzymes back to normal. Glucose back in normal range but cholestrol a bit high (hereditary problem, but doc said ultimately important I get that DOWN low.) Liver ultrasound - though the size of it has decreased since last year, it was showing signs of problems/possible damage. Doc says no can do the birth control, drinking (don't do much anyway) and gotta try and stay off Tylenol (forgot to ask if that meant Motrin as well - either way, how can I stay off that stuff???)
Kids are back in school and we're getting readjusted back to life. My son (4 1/2 yrs) seems to have a crush on a girl in school that is reciprocted apparently. He's the only boy in the class invited to her princess birthday party on Saturday. Too cute.
I hope you all start feeling better! I'm sorry the weather is so rotten for you. You gotta move out here. Erin, were/are you affected by that transit strike I read about the other day?
