Looking for a new Dr.

I got a letter in the mail today explaining that my Lyme Literate Dr. is moving to the east coast. What's up with people moving back east these days? Anyway, that means I have to find a new Lyme Dr and quick. It likely also means traveling and a higher cost per visit. Hopefully this will all work out quickly and maybe this new Dr., who ever it turns out to be, can help me to get better faster. What a bummer. I really liked her.

Not so good of news from the DR.

Well, I went to see my Lyme Literate Dr. yesterday and received news that is a bit of a bummer. My CD-57 test results have dropped again. This means that the specific part of my immune system that deals with the Lyme disease is getting weaker. At one point it was up at 69, now it's down to 22. I have to stay in treatment until it stays around 200 for a few months and I feel good. This means that the salt/C thing hasn't been helping enough and I'm likely going to have to go back to some antibiotics in combination with the supplements and salt/C. She also told me that when people get sort of stuck in their treatment it's often due to heavy metals gumming up their kidneys and liver. This reduces the body's ability to detox the Lyme bacteria and toxins. She's ordering some heavy metal testing for me and I will likely have to take a chelator(sp) to help clean out the metals in my system. I already knew that I had a problem with heavy metals from the testing I had done with the naturopath and thought I was doing enough to take care of it, but I guess not. So, we're sorta back to the drawing board and going to be trying some different ideas. I hope it works cause I'm sure ready to feel better.

Just out of curiosity, I got a quick reading done while at a psychic/craft faire this last weekend. I don't know how much credit I give this kind of thing, but it was interesting. She said that I'm a hard worker who is aggressively working on this issue and I'm doing everything right and that she sees an end to it all in the near future and that in a matter of months I should be really healthy again. She also said that the universe sent Lyme my way to get me to wake up and start paying attention to my body because it needed to be taken better care of. That's interesting because i really believe that everything happens for a reason and I couldn't figure out what the reason for getting Lyme was other then having the time to discover my inner artist.

In any case, I'm willing to try whatever because I really want to be myself again. Wish me luck, please.

2 years and why I love my husband

Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary! We had a really nice, simple, calm, beautiful day together. According to tradition gifts for the 2nd year are cosmos and cotton. Emiliano got me lots of beautiful cosmos and helped me plant them in the garden. He also got me a gift card and took me shopping to buy cotton shorts which I really needed because nothing from last summer fits anymore. Too small. We also had lunch at the Center Street Grill, relaxed in the sun, and saw Old School at the Crepe Place. A fun day indeed.

I spent today thinking about why glad I'm married to Emiliano and it was easy to come up with lots of reasons. Here are 10 in no particular order and not necessarily the top ten, just ten.

1. He is funny and makes me laugh
2. He plays hard and works hard
3. He makes better falafel then I do
4. We both have vintage Schwinns that are really cute when we ride together
5. He tries really hard to make life good for us
6. He is patient with me and understanding about my health ups and downs
7. He is a good cuddler
8. He supports me in a million ways
9. He does all the heavy lifting
10. He pretends to love every single pair of earrings I have ever made and that's a lot!
