Five more days...

Monday, May 24, 2010

I went for my follow up visit with my Doctor today.

The good news is that I'm going in the right direction, the bad news is I'm not there yet.

She did another round of blood work and did a quick test on the mineral levels so that we would know whether to add a supplement. My potassium has climbed back into the lower end of the normal range, so no supplement will be necessary.

The bottom line is that she prescribed five more days of the same antibiotic.

She also reminded me of how ill I truly was last Wednesday and reviewed some of the lab results beyond the quick ones that we looked at then. All the indicators of infection and inflammation were extremely high.

She cautioned that I should add different types of foods very slowly to my daily intake to insure that my system had time to accommodate the changes. She also suggested that I not attempt anything like a regular schedule yet and to give myself enough time to get my strength and energy back.

Thank you again to all who have expressed support and concern.

    Giving your body time to heal is giving you time to get your strength back. Also, as you do need nourishment, remember to eat 4 or 5 small meals a day. Smaller portions and more often will allow your body to heal better.
