It has been a whole week since I've written. I thought that was super nice of myy sister, Laura, to make an entry on my birthday. Thanks for all your kind wishes and words--I had a wonderful day. I broke out of my normal routine, and went over to my sister-in-law's scrapbooking store, where she now has fabric...and took a quilting class. It was so much fun! I even went out to lunch too, and had fun there. But, as usual, I was pretty wiped out when I got home. :) Still don't have the energy that I would like to have.
I also went out to lunch with a friend on Wednesday, and that was good too. However, I have kind of "paid the price" this week for going a little more than usual...and guess I still need to pace myself better. I am still having some stomach problems--we're not sure if it is just my body getting adjusted to my new "plumbing" or if it's related to what I eat. But I need to be very careful not to eat too much...and I still struggle because I have very little desire to eat. It is still a learning process, and I am still in recovery mode, although i would like to deny that!
I am so thankful to be taking less pills. Like I said last week, I am off the cumadin, and so don't have to have blood work taken every week. (My arm was starting to look a little like a pin cushion!) I am also off the Flagell for the C-Dif, and am hoping with all my heart to be done with C-Dif forever!
I get calls almost daily from Katie, my daughter, who just got engaged...and we are happy that now we can officially work on her wedding plans. (We were working on them, but now we have the official "go ahead" to do whatever needs to get done). Once again I am working on a wedding long-distance. It would be nice if we could be closer to work on some of these things together...but thank heavens for phones and emails, and other ways of communication. :) Well, that's about it for today. I have been taking some walks with my dog this week, and we both enjoy that. Have a good Friday. Love to all, Louise
