Clinic Visit

Early, early, early (ok 8:30 :-) this morning I had another clinic visit to see if we are headed in the right direction with current treatment.  Whohoo, my PFT’s were up!  I think all of us sighed in relief.  It seems as if things are headed in the right direction.  So, at least a couple more weeks of meds and then the goal of trying to keep my numbers up.  

We are also doing a lot w/ diet in order to get on top of the fungal infection.  [funny note; in the Doc’s notes from last visit it has that I have a “pasta” fungal infection....hmmm, resist the urge for jokes and smart comments ;-)] Ok, back to diet.  In the past I have had great success w/ what many would refer to as a candida elimination diet-basically, no sugar, no caffeine, tons of fresh fruits, veggies, grains, etc.  I keep reminding myself that it is worth the focus and work in order to help my body get on top of this.  Plus, I believe that it is a good example of stewardship.

Thanks to those who have been praying-you can see how the Lord is answering specifically. We will keep on keeping on.

Awesome! So much for meeting up for coffee. . . sugar, caffeine, etc... With friends like me it's no wonder you can't keep on top of things. Next time it's Whole Foods juice bar with an extra shot of wheat grass! ;) Still praying and resting.
