You are the very best. Thank you & update.

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I am again amazed my the good friends and great people in general on Spark. Not that I haven't seen this over and over but I shared more than I would like yesterday. I needed to get it out and I just knew it would help to blog. I was not sure what to expect from responses and I was good with that.

Everyone was supportive.

I heard from people that I did not know. I had some that thought I should leave. I realize I did not tell my entire story. I did not share all that may man had done for me. I did not share his background or the type of person he is. I agree that there is no excuse for treating someone badly. I am however grateful that I am one of the lucky ones that knows my man. I honestly trust him more than I trust myself. He consistently does what is right. Long story and I am going off topic.

I had my closest friends who know me seem to really understand. I had good friends hold their tongue and just simply be there for me and be supportive. I know that is not easy. I have been there and said too much at one point. At that time I thought it may have hurt a friendship. It didn't thank God.

Anyway, I am so grateful for the responses. I read them and thought about them.
What I am trying to say is...

Now for the positive update.

emoticon I slept well. That was nice.

emoticon A quick update on my weight.
- 71 days at my goal weight or under.
- Then 7 of 22 over my goal weight. This bothered me when they started to string together.
- Now, 4 days straight back under my goal weight.
emoticon It feels good.

Now to more ...


Utah's Liver levels
- 4/18 ALT 606 - should be 118 - now 216
- 4/18 ALKP 224 - should be 131 - now 164

GREAT improvement. I wondered if when I gave him too many pills on March 19th if that caused this spike (in addition to the general high dosage of Phenobarbitol).

His phenobarb levels should be 35 or below according to the neurologist.

- 1/9 = 19 (and seizures)
- 3/6 = 27.5
- 4/18 = 39 too high (no seizures all month)
- 5/16 = 33

We are dropping the phenobarbital by a half a pill a day (2 quarters). It is better for him. We just need to be careful that he does not start having seizures again.

If you haven't heard last Tuesday was 8 weeks with NO SEIZURE!!!!!

Thanks again for being there! emoticon

    emoticon I like this blog.

    It did upset me to read a comment advising you to leave. That is a conclusion "only" you should consider or make.

    Friends should not judge. Things can be painful enough without another offering their opinion. Sometimes just an ear is all that is needed.

    You love your man and he makes you happy, that's what matters most.

    Wishing you emoticon the best!

    emoticon I am so glad Utah is doing better! That is one lucky puppy to have such a great mom!

    I am also proud of you for being under your goal weight. I have gotten really off track this month and don't even want to get on the scale to asses the damage! ugh!

    You are doing great!

    I have to agree that Sparkers are awesome. It is by far the best "feature" of this web site. I never ever feel a lack of support and reassurance here.

    You are the only one who can decide what is right for you. We are just here to be supportive of your decisions!

    Nice blog to wake up to. I hope your Sunday is the absolute best. I'm on my way out the door to a very wet race. Hope I don't freeze in the rain. More later.

    I just read your blog from yesterday.. IMHO you are doing what is right..for you.. I would do exactly what you have done..
    I do, however, agree with a poster that said that what HE did was HIS decision , his value of your commitment to each other.
    Since he did stop his behavior at the critical point, I believe that at the back of his mind, his conscience was guiding him, to toe the line for you.

    Nobody can give advice, and should not, give advice to anybody .. suggest, yes,,, It is YOUR shoes that you will always wear, you need to fit them to YOUR foot, not another person's.

    I do have to say, maturity and security are things that you showed,, hubby, not so much.. You have already humbly admitted you need to work on yourself,, as outsiders we can see he does too..
    giving 100% of self to another, not 50%, is what a marriage means..

    Best of luck to you both,, this was a great growth lesson for both of you!
