I received the results of my MRI last week and there were no signs of MS. Of course I am happy about that but I didn't really have a chance to celebrate the good news.
Last Sunday morning I received a text from my daughters (live-in) boyfriend saying that she would need me that day as he decided it wasn't for him and he was moving out while she was at work. Total Blindside. I really like this boy but I think it was a chickenshit move to do it that way....but, whatever. So, I decided I needed to be there when she got home. I couldn't imagine her walking in to an empty place.. It was heartbreaking. There was nothing I could/can do to take her pain away. It is the hardest part of parenting for sure.
She is doing well, very driven, very accomplished girl of 21 and I know she will survive this but if I could take the pain away I would.
I stayed with her a couple days and all the while I could feel that I was getting sick (I'm sure I picked up something while going to one of my 14 appointments in January) I ended up with strep throat and an ear infection. Let me tell you something bandsters, antibiotics in liquid form = gag! But I am happy to report that my girl is on the mend, I am on the mend (st least from this infection)
So, even with the good results it still leaves the question WTF is wrong with me? We are back to the Fibromyalgia theory and I will be seeing a Rheumatologist later in the month. The bladder issues will be addressed on Wednesday.
Last Friday (week ago) after my MRI I had a fill scheduled. I got .15?, .1 & 1/2.. taking me to 9.5 & 1/2 is that 9.55? in my 11 cc realize band. In true form the fill kicked in one week later and I've been extra careful because of the throat/cold thing. I feel it for sure. I have no hunger and actually have had to struggle to get my protein in. I average a min. of 40g a day but always shoot for more. I have given up the carbs again as I had started to depend on them to boost my low energy levels and then I'd crash and feel worse.
One day at a time, one problem at a time, one pound at a time.....
Where the hell is Spring? I really could use some sun and flowers and birds singing :)
