What’s Up with Wendy

Cherry Trees are blooming in NC

It’s beginning to look a lot like…Spring!  The cherry trees are blooming.  The grass is starting to have little green spots.  The weather is crazy; one day it’s hot, the next day it’s cold.  Spring is trying to…well..spring!  It’s an exciting time, watching life begin.  We are busy planning our garden, it’s so nice to think that this year I will be able to have a garden.  This is the third year we’ve been in this house, and I really wanted to have a garden, but this is the first time I thought I might actually be able to take care of one!

I’m so excited about how well I’ve been feeling.  I’ve been busy, busy, busy doing things I haven’t been able to do in so long.  I know it probably sounds crazy, but I’m so excited about being able to clean!  Yes, I scrubbed our bathroom and was just so happy!  I’ve been doing laundry!  We have a front loading washer and dryer and before I couldn’t load and unload them without getting dizzy, so doing laundry is just so exciting.

I’m sure I won’t be as excited about doing house work for long, but right now I’m just so happy.

I’m also excited about something else.  I haven’t had diarrhea in over a week now!  I don’t know what has changed, but I’m so very happy.  Now if I could just take off this weight!  Hopefully, now that I can move more the weight will start to come off.  I sure hope so.

One unfortunate thing about moving more, my hip is starting to really bother me again.  I’m hoping to start going to the pool and working with it.  I don’t know if it will work, but it has before.  If not, I guess I’ll have to start considering surgery.  But not until I’ve exhausted every other option!

Right now I’m doing the last Breath Test.  Today is the fructose test.  The stuff I had to drink was so sweet, I still have a sickly sweet taste in my mouth.  I’m so hungry, I haven’t had anything to eat since about 8:30pm last night.  Just 2 more hours to go, and I’ll be finished!  I’m looking forward to finding out what these tests show.  I doubt it will show anything, as usual, but at least I will know.  : )  I’ll let you know next week!

  1. This is good times for you. I hope it keep getting better for you, too! Because, you know, the day will come when you are looking at the housework and you’ll go…tomorrow. And then you can be exited at being lazy. Because all we want is the choice to be able to do or not do something.

    As for the diarrhea, have you had the dizziness go away for a long-enough period of time before and have the diarrhea go away or lessen at the same time? I know I’m wondering about the obvious, the connection between the ears and digestive system, but hopefully it’s a contributing factor for you now.

    But all this mentioning of the coming of spring. I’m still jealous. Our snow was melting but we had a big dumping of snow and freezing rain at the beginning of the week. I was even starting to see patches of grass. *sniff* But, your weather is giving me hope as we’re getting another mini heat wave for the next few days.

    Have a great day!

    That’s great news Wendy. I’m feeling well but I must admit that I’m not off the Ativan yet. I have come down from the Scopolamine patches but I can’t sleep soundly at night without taking one Ativan at night (which is 1/3 of my doctors prescription so that is good news….will likely write more about that in my blog later on tonight.)
    I know how you feel about finally doing normal things. Last October I was so glad to finally go to the bathroom by myself after 3 months of total dependence on my husband!
    Congratulations! 🙂
