Well happy 2013 everyone! I'm a bit late on these well-wishes but I'm happy to report that I'm finally starting to feel alive again! The crazy journey of my injury, recovery, infections, blood-clots, etc. is far from over, but I'm finally hopeful that the end may be in sight.
I spent November, December, and the beginning of January in and out of the hospital and on bed-rest, but thanks to the following script of perfectly illegible doctor's handwriting, I'm finally starting to feel like myself again... but it hasn't been easy!
However, at church a few weeks ago, a friend introduced me to a doctor who specializes in digestive issues. Talking with him, deciphering his scribbles, then implementing a new dietary regimen has brought be out of my fog! YAY! No, the infection isn't gone, but I'm able to cope with it and be out and about in the world. YAY FOR PLAYING IN SUNSHINE! I've never stuck to a diet for more than a week in my life... lol!... but with what I have been suffering through, giving up some of my favorite yummy (translate: unhealthy) foods seems like a small price to pay.
