OUCH!

It’s been a while, so I’m here to update you all on my current status. First of all … OUCH! … I’m starting to feel like a human pincushion!! 😦 I’m telling you this because I went for blood work on Monday and my arm is still sore and even bruised … not because the…

Almost!

Well, I ALMOST made it through this full moon phase unscathed … ALMOST! Full moon was Thursday, and I haven’t had any sleep / gastric disturbance until last night/early this morning. I can’t imagine any other reason for it than the full moon. But I’m not complaining! I made it a lot further than I…

6 Month Update

Okay … I can hardly believe that it’s 6 months to the date I embarked on this crazy journey which officially started with a colonoscopy and an endoscopy in place of our sunny 25th anniversary vacation in Roatan … ahhh memories!  😳 Anyway … we won’t look back on that gloomy time … I’ll just give…

“Stable”

So … you’re all well over-due for an update. Not a LOT to report but I’ll bring you up-to-speed. Generally I guess you’d consider my condition “stable” … but that doesn’t mean it’s a happy place to be. I’m still not happy with my GI motility – it’s far too unpredictable for my liking. That…

One step forward .. two steps back.

Just a quick update, though I hesitate to update anyone when I’m feeling less than positive. Still haven’t been sleeping the best since full moon. Is it a thing or not, I really don’t know. Still dealing with sore throat and itchy ears – is it yeast over-growth or monthly cycle or allergies or a…

The Equation for Sleep

The Equation for Sleep …. (2 Nights of Bad Sleep + 1 Tylenol) – Full Moon = Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs Yup! Success! I slept through the night! YAY! 😊 Other than that, not a lot to report … just thought you’d all want to know … so there you go! And so as not to let you down,…

Officially a “Lunatic”

LUNATIC| [loo-nuh-tik] Origin: Old French from Late Latin lūnāticus crazy, moonstruck, fromLatin lūna moon. Meaning: Originally, affected with the kind of insanity that was supposed to have recurring periods dependent on the changes of the moon. In modern use, synonymous with insane; current in popular and legal language, but not now employed technically by physicians. It was believed in medieval Europe that changes in the moon’s phases could…

Dear Full-Moon…

Dear Full-Moon, Can’t we all just get along!? Sincerely, Me & My Gut 😘 Yes, I know I’ve been lax with my updates lately, but I hate to bore you when there’s not a “lot” to report. That said however…. “Happy Full-Moon!” …. NOT! Ok, first things first though, a quick run-down of an update:…

Okay!

Okay! … that’s how I’m feeling (for the most part). Just wanted to post a real quick update to let you all know how things are going. Swelling – Has not returned!! Even though I’ve been off the diuretics for almost a week! Woohoo … that’s definitely progress. Guess my albumin is up enough I…

Just another update…

Ok … just thought I’d give you all a quick update … So far so good – no swelling! YAY!! Maybe my protein is back close enough to normal (more than double what it was in June when I went to ER for chest pain, and only 8 points off the low end of normal)…

Here We Go Again …

Okay so here’s the latest … My Doc is on vacation, so I booked an appointment with a newbie doctor – one of the ones I had when my Doc was on vacation when this originally started. This is the doc I pressured into doing some additional thyroid tests … so I thought I’d try…
