Well I had my check up with my RO. I was shocked when I stepped on the scale. I definitely did not have to wear 6 layers of clothing, boots, and have a pocket full of pennies this time when I stepped on the scale. Dress and heels. 110.7 Much better than 87 pounds. :D He gave me the old scope-a-rooni. Looked and felt around my mouth neck and everything looked good. Except my mouth is 'extra dry'. (no kidding). As some of you know I am on the Pet-free plan. So, he ordered another chest X-ray and a thyroid check since I am still exhausted all the time.
He was very pleased and proud of me for how far I have come. Mee tooo! Next appointment in six months. They are getting farther and farther out.
I am sure my X-ray and blood test will be normal. It was so nice to be out and about in the sunshine today. I was early so I went to dunkin donuts and had a cheese egg and croissant sandwich and a cup of toasted almond cappuccino. Got half down before I ran out of time. :) Feels nice to be doing 'normal' things. Had to sit here in the parking lot, face up to the sunshine and give a prayer of thanksgiving. :)
For those who feel like there is no end in sight, there is. Sometimes it just takes som of us a little longer to get to our new normal. Thinking of all my friends here today and wishing you all many blessings.
