Hello from the Great Lakes:
The weather here has been wonderful.  The bluebirds are back and busy looking for places to nest.  If I am lucky, I usually get a family or two in my bird houses.  We are battling our annual sping ant infestation.  What a mess that is.  The minute the weather warms up they find any crevice they can and move inside.  Our two cats are totally ticked of about the antsf, as their sacred food bowls had to be moved to higher ground.  Our one cat is deaf and does not realize how loud she can be.  She had been walking around the kitchen screaming at the top of her lungs because her precious bowl was moved.  What a drama queen.  The older cat (Dolly) just bonks the deaf one (Lilly) on the top of her head with her paw, trying to tell her to "knock it off" already.
For some reason my thyroid medicine is all out of whack.  I started having night sweats, facial flushing, high blood pressure, elevated heart rate, and heat intolerance about 6 weeks ago.  I just figured out what is was and saw my doctor.  Now the I have reduced my Sunthroid dose, things are slowly getting back to normal.  If it isn't one thing - then it is something else.
So what's going on with YOU!

Hello Back From New England!

We are all very happy to have the spring season back again. This past weekend was great with record temps, took a long walk in the woods along the stream with my wife and our dog. You would think that I would avoid the woods like the plague after struggling with lyme this past year. My legs don't seem to work like they used to but it was good to get moving again after hibernating most of the winter season. By the way, we also have a cat named Lily.

Right now I am taking absolutely no medications or supplements to give my body a break for a while. I anticipate getting into some prednisone and or abx when some recent test results come back. Trying to keep a positive attitue and keep moving towards recovery from my symptoms.

Hope that things get back to normal for you soon.
Peace and Healing
