Yep, had a good day yesterday. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it feels to have an appetite and really enjoy the meals now that Carmen made for me. I am so impressed that she made such tasty good meals with so few ingredients. She is making sauces and such from almond milk and things. Her things are very tasty with so many fresh herbs. I will be using her again to make another 2 weeks of meals for me.
So yesterday my doctor called around 6pm. She wanted to bring an orthopedic surgeon to see me who had seen my x-rays of hands and feet. Yep, can you believe that! Two doctors making a house call on a Sunday! but they had just been with another patient right down the hill from me. Anyway this doctor said he believes for sure that I have RA and that could be causing all of my problems with digestion and all. He was very nice and reviewed with me all of my options going forward and all of the new technology to replace the joints in my hands and such. He showed me photos and everything. I know someday I will have to have surgery on my feet as they are getting pretty crippled. I bet you wouldn't have two doctors come to your home on a Sunday in the states.
So I guess the heavy meds are working on whatever autoimmune thing I have as I am feeling so much better. Will get the doggies out for a walk and do a few errands today.
Thank you again dear sparks friends for all your on going support. You mean the world to me!
Have a terrific day!
