Healing and moving forward
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
So, the tonsillectomy is pretty much healed... there's still some kind of 'blockage' like the uvula is swollen or something... or just a large chunk of drainage from my sinuses that won't clear.... not sure yet.
Now I'm on to working on the whole gluten-free life. My roommate is developing other allergies as well. She's known about coconut (she's allergic and I hate that stuff, so we're good), but she's showing signs of gluten intolerance and possibly a reaction to canola oil. Frustrating, to be sure. So, we have to watch so much of what comes in. I cook our dinners in olive oil, when I use any oil. For baking, I have sunflower oil. We're both seeing the doc next week so we'll ask for allergy testing for her... although I'd love to get it done as well, since I'm developing allergies to things as well.
I lost about 12 pounds during the tonsillectomy recovery and I'm trying to muster the energy to keep it off. I'll get to my goal... somehow.
