Hi guys. Hope you are all doing ok. Haven't been by in a while. I have been doing a little better with my eating. Swallowing is still a challenge but I've not used my peg since July and my weight has been stable. I am still tiny. Like 96 pounds, but I have an actual appetite. I have been able to eat some good stuff. I live on veggie curries, I had my first cheeseburger in a year an a half the other day. Today I had an eggs Benedict of sorts (no muffin no Canadian bacon on a pancake) and actually ate in public. :) I still choke when I eat, and still have the stricture despite being stretched twice, but I am learning to cook around it.
I am happy to report that I am now having some really good days. I am even going to attempt to go to the PA Renaissance Faire. I am excited.
After having that peg tube for 18 months it feels great to get rid of it.
