I met with my GI doctor and my GP doctor yesterday. Thank goodness the latest blood work was good and that means I won't have to have the invasive bone marrow biopsy.
The doctors believe that my RA just got nasty and decided to present itself in my GI track. The medicines they put me on are working and other than a bit tired today I am feeling positive and good(darn dog work me at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep). So it looks like I will have to watch the RA for life and will continue to eat gluten free and dairy free to be nice to my GI track.
Carmen came over to discuss new menu plan and will deliver more yummy meals to me.
Oh and I am also juicing which is helping.
So there you are.....finally a more upbeat blog that I can write.
I can't begin to express to all of you who follow me how much I appreciate your on going thoughts and prayers and well wishes. I will admit that this has been one of the hardest things I have had to go through. There were definitely some dark days there. I have so much more empathy now for people who are so sick they can't live daily life. Good health is such a blessing. I say to all that read this....treat your body like a temple and fuel it with good healthy foods and not crap so you can be in good health.
