Celiac, CFS, Hypotension – To Keep Up, Jump…

friends

No, not literally.  It may wear you out and frankly, you won’t get anywhere.

Okay friends, strangers I hope will become friends, and anybody else who’s interested.  I’m trying to transition our Living Chronically blog over to it’s new and more “Lori friendly” home.  After you’ve made that all important leap of faith, I’d love for you to join in.  Please click on “The Committed” button to join in and I’ll be able to jump back and visit you some time as well!  If, for some unknown reason, you aren’t comfy doing that, you can click on “The Alternative” button.  I and my other blogger friends won’t have the pleasure of seeing your pretty profile on my blog.  But, hey, whatever floats your boat.  The important thing here is to jump.

Ready?  Here’s where you make the  JUMP See you there!

P.S. Please be kind.  It’s a work in progress and beauty sometimes takes it’s own sweet time.

It’s Friday!

We’re about to begin our third day of taking only Florinef.  I’m sure that any regrets we may have for ditching the old meds will hit us sometime this weekend.  Hopefully there will be no regrets, only happiness.  Remember, we doubled the Florinef on Wednesday and did away with her other medication.  

Jessie was lying on her bed reading for hours yesterday trying to finish a book for her english class.  She got dizzy twice when she got up (dizzy meaning dizzy with black and light flashes).  She said it passed and surmised that it was because she’d been lying down for so long in one spot.  Considering that she had one of those “study all day” days and got through it without a killer headache, I take it as a good sign.  It will be interesting to see how she slept last night.  I’ll be holding my breath throughout the upcoming week, waiting for the ball to drop – and I thought I was a “glass is half-full” kind of person.  (Truly I am; this is just a fluke)

Wes is going up to North Carolina this weekend to deliver Jeff’s old dirt bike to the guy who bought it.  He will be staying with friends.  Another sign that she’s feeling a bit better is that Jessie literally pitched a fit last night because she wanted to go so badly.  Normally she would not be up for a road trip.  Of course, we had to say no because she’s been sick and we just changed her medication drastically.  I hate pulling the “mean parent” routine.  It’s gotta be done from time to time, but it really sucks.  First of all nothing would make me happier than to make my kids happy.  Second, nothing would please me more than to send both of my kids AWAY for a weekend.  “Mean parent” surfaced, so I’m sure to be given the “treatment” all weekend long.  Fun Fun

Jeff had to fly to Chicago for what will probably be a one-hour meeting today.  He’ll be back tonight.  Usually a conference call is all it takes, but every once in awhile he has to make a ridiculous trek for a one-hour meeting.  I sent him with a book I’d just started, “Three Cups of Tea”.  I think he’ll like it.  

Okay let the day begin.  Here’s wishing you a wonderful, peaceful Friday.
