Appointment Today

Today was my appt with Dr. Baker.

Honey went with me, which was great. It's like an out-of-town date!

Anyway, he mentioned that it's only been 9 weeks since we've started this treatment. That doesn't sound like long at all does it? And so much improvement in a short amount of time!

There are some tweaks we are doing with the hormone cream b/c my symptoms are so cyclical. He is also starting me on a low dose Nystatin for awhile for Candida.

I was really hoping that he'd say we were done with all the LGS/Candida business and that I could start re-introducing some foods. But no. We're looking at a good 2 years.

And while that kinda sounds like a long time, it's ok. I'm finding more and more foods that I like. Besides, its worth it to feel better. And most of the time I'm feeling pretty good.

~I don't doubt whether or not I can walk during tutoring.
~I can almost wear my wedding ring.
~I've discovered that I'm pretty good at making smoothies.

Seems like any type of fluctuations in my body affect RA.

I think I have a urinary tract infection. No big deal b/c those tend to go away very quickly with lots of water and blueberries. But I'm up earlier than need be for 2 mornings in a row. I feel it.

Last night I asked Honey if he thought there was improvement. He wasn't very encouraging. He said that I'm just coping better. I didn't agree. But now that I think about it, I see how we each view this differently. He will not be satisfied until it's gone...completely and totally gone. I tend to settle for "at least it's not like it was". I need to aim higher...and pray to that extent.
