A few small updates
Friday, July 06, 2012      9 comments

My bloodwork looked fine again this week (as it always does) so they've agreed to put me down to 2 days a week of TPN. I'm ready to be done with it. Even if I lose weight at this point the TPN is over and I'll be going to a J-tube. I got ab... Read more
I figured out what was causing the allergic reaction.
Sunday, July 01, 2012      2 comments

I think I figured out what I was having an allergic reaction to: the softgel casing around the CoQ10. I'm back to taking all of the new meds and last night and this morning I squeezed out the CoQ10 liquid onto food (it's kinda gross, but food fl... Read more

I bought this dress a year and a half ago. With the weight I lost it was too loose for awhile, but now it fits well again (it's a size small, but fits more like a medium). It ... Read more

Getting the writing bug back
Sunday, June 24, 2012      3 comments

Somehow yesterday I got into a multiple hour video fest on youtube, watching very emotional videos. (I won't go into what they all were, as it's not important.) After about 6 hours last night, I spent another 4 hours or so again today. It's put ... Read more
The ugly tie contest & another allergic reaction!
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      2 comments

Just a quick share: In my last blog I mentioned about my cousin making a tie out of an awful fake fur fabric to enter into an ugly tie contest. I got an email today to call and find out if they won or not. Well, they estimated about 80 ties were... Read more
The rest of the Milwaukee trip and new developments
Sunday, June 17, 2012      3 comments

Because my last blog about my new diagnoses was so long, I didn't tell about anything else that happened on the trip, or about the upcoming changes in my TPN. Thus, I'm writing this blog to talk about all of that. I was up Sunday night unti... Read more

Warning: This blog could become a little technical, but I'm going to try to make it as easy to understand as possible. I just started a little research on these new diagnoses in just the last few hours, so I'm still learning. As usual, my diagno... Read more

Monday, June 04, 2012      3 comments

Tomorrow I turn 31. I could do a ton of reflecting on my life, think about all that's happened to me, what I've accomplished or failed at, what I want for the future or what I still want to accomplish. Instead, right now I want to post a couple ... Read more

600 days - never missed tracking a meal!
Thursday, May 31, 2012      4 comments

I've been on SP for 600 days (since Oct 9th, 2010) and I've never missed tracking a single meal. Sure, there were days that it seemed too annoying to get on and do it, but because I have a partially paralyzed digestive system it has become very ... Read more
