Yoo hoo, where are you?
We'd like an update on your bowel status and your man status (how's Adam the roomie)?
Are your guts still cooperating?
Miss ya!

Hey girls!  You know, I was just coming on here thinking about how lame I felt not having corresponded with you guys in so long, and was going to post.  Thanks for checking in.  :-)

My guts did marvelously for the couple of months after the course of metronidazole, and then a few weeks ago started acting up again.  The diarrhea is back, though not to the ridiculous extent it was a while ago.  Instead of 20 bathroom trips a day it's something like 3-5.  Tolerable, but irritating nonetheless.  Some pain, nausea, and low-grade fevers each night as well.  I'm thinking of asking about another course of Flagyl to see what that does.  Either way, I'm saying screw it to the GI, and going straight to one of the PCPs I've seen (including fabulous Meg, who is back at the urgent care clinic where I first met her). 

Adam is still a bunny; we are happy as clams together.  This whole couple-thing is blissful most of the time.  Talkin' about marriage.  After I get into school!  Which brings me to the next news, that I'm applying to both nurse practitioner programs and medical schools, delaying my decision as long as possible :-) I am so freakin' indecisive.  It's so hard to know which is better for me.  So...any advice is welcome!

I've missed you guys and sorry that I haven't posted but please update me on your lives too!  Any big news??

Nice to see you, Sarita!
Sorry to hear about your guts... But congrats on getting Meg back (sort of). Keep up the Flagyl if you can. Are you still on quite a "cocktail" or did you give that up?
I'm so happy you and Adam are still going strong. Marriage talk... How exciting! I remember that first message from you about him... and now look. :-)

Keep keeping us posted.

BTW - Nothing new with me. My guts still act up every now and then, I have the same FAR job and no man. Life is grand.
