Happy Cupid Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying this day either with a loved one, or a fur baby, or even enjoying it by yourself doing some self love and relaxation...whatever one is doing hope you all enjoyed it...

So far this month has been busy...had my next check up with my medication trial...and had a 3rd round of tests done on the things that was off last month ...hemoglobin is back to normal, white count is still not at : my normal" so they are a little concerned on that...my muscle enzyemes are still high..normal is around the 100 mark...mine was at 900 and now sitting at 570 not sure why it is still high but they said to try and workout a little more( I explained I was back to work so not sure if I can do more than the 2-3 days I am doing now) they did not know I was back so they said to work and try and get 3 days in ...keep a journal on how long it takes for my body to recover , as right now when I work out I am so sore for days...and not the normal sore you would get.....keep track if I am more tired than normal , etc ..then we will see if I will go in for blood work than or wait for my March appointment...so we will see...
This week I worked 4 days and was only able to get one day in to work out...and all weekend I have been so tired and sore...I also explained that I have lost alot of weight this month alone...20 pounds and was very worried about that...They feel it is because since this is an auto immune condition... your body would be inflammed most of the time as your body's reaction is all over the place and the body does not know how to "settle" and since I was having a breakout almost daily , or for days when they start my body is very inflammed ..and now that I am on 400mg a day , and on an anti-inflammatory diet...my body is finally settling... and the inflammation is going down and away...that they have seen this in other patients doing this study...so that made me feel great! so now I am super proud of my weight loss...

Another thing that happened this month is I had to get progression glasses , I have always had better than 20/20 vision and a yr ago when I went still 20/20 but my eyes changed drastically and went back and yup eyes changed BIG TIME...so trying to get used to glasses...and the focus...my eyes are still not totally focused yet so I hope there is not too many mistakes or confusion on this blog ...I am trying to focus lol...

and the final thing that happened this year is that we adopted a cat..his "name" was Leo...the shelter gave him but we named him Monkey as for one he has the longest tail I ever seen on a cat...and this cat is truly a monkey he goes everywhere! he know how to opend drawers...so if he is in a tantrum he goes around the house room by room and open all the drawers and pulls everything out of the drawers...and then there is the doors...he opens all those too ,,and the tolit seat ...that is his favourite! he sits there and opens it and let is slam close he will do this for a few times until one of us yell at him...he is truly like having a 2 year old in the house again

To finish off this blog I will post some pics of Monkey....and one day when I am all dolled up I will take a pic of me in my glasses...

Chow for now

    Keep plugging along, girlfriend! Keep after them for answers, but try not to worry. I know, easier said than done. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you try to figure out the weight loss and soreness and lab findings.
    Leo....I meant to say Monkey!, is such a cute kitty and SMART! He sounds fun and mischievous!
    Yes, show us pics of you in your glasses. I bet you look like a sexy librarian! emoticon
    Have a good week ahead. And happy Valentine’s to you also.

    Any other time 20 lbs down would be great but, I’m worried too. You are in my prayers. MONKEY is such a sweetie! I’m glad you adopted!
