Awesome today

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I slept so good last night and feel terrific today. I am loving life feeling healthy.
I even started thinking about what to pack for the Florida trip June 23rd taking the kids to Disney World. I can't believe that I was at one point thinking there would be no way for me to go if I felt like I did. But today is totally different and I am excited about the trip. Woo hoo. Can't begin to tell you what a difference it is from just a week ago. So the drugs are working.

Had a wonderful walk with the dogs. Made the whole walk and did it early since it will be hot again today.

Weight is also coming back on so that is helping me build strength. Up to 106.5. Today I will eat a gluten free, dairy free chicken pot pie that Carmen made me for lunch. It looks wonderful. She made it with gluten free bisquick. Looking forward to it....and now the appetite won't quit. But just like I told all of you before..."Embrace your appetite!" I will be doing that today for sure.

Of course now, I don't want to put so much weight on that I would have to buy all new clothes. I feel good at 110 for my small bone structure and would like to stay around there. My DH says though that he would so rather have a chunky healthy wife than a skinny sick wife. Cute of him to say.
Hope all of you are having a great day.
Sallie

    What a great blog! I read back a bit, I hope that's ok, and see you've been working through some issues and health mysteries. I am so glad that the treatment is working and hope you get that definitive diagnosis soon. In the meantime, enjoy feeling so great and may it continue!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better and that between the drugs and the gluten free dairy free diet you have hope to continue to feel well. Have a wonderful trip.

    Sallie, a big hug and pat on the back to you for being so patient throughout a very stressful and at times scary ordeal! You are really to be congratulated for being such a patient, determined, compliant patient in the face of having been so debilitated by what actually sounds like a confluence of very unpleasant medical circumstances. So glad that now you have the energy and good health you need to plan - and enjoy! - that upcoming trip to Florida with the kids. (Just a hint, but your SparkPeep friends always enjoy those pictures :)...

What a remarkable nutrition-minded "kitchen magician" Carmen is, preparing you such appealing goodies to help bring your flagging appetite back online - yeah!!! emoticon I had no idea there was such a thing as gluten-free Bisquick...but how wonderful! Just today at the store, I noticed a real proliferation of gluten-free products, and what a boon they must be for gluten-sensitive folks. Your DH is so supportive and loving, but I don't think he has anything to fear about his wife becoming "chunky". At 106.5, that would take a LOT of work - plus, you're back to exercising more and more once again now, too. emoticon dear Sparkfriend! - Susan

    Know you will enjoy Disney World, but it will be hot at that time of year. Leave some room in your suitcases for what you want to take back from the states. So glad you are feeling great.

So glad you're feeling like your old self again!! Wow, you're even thinking about your Florida trip... who would have thought that a week ago :) You are doing so well, enjoy your food and don't worry too much about putting on weight. Another few pounds and you'll stabilize again just where you'd like to be!
