It was warmer, sunny and calm out today, Monday. They say we will have a January thaw. I am ready for that. Our wood supply is too. David fears we will run out; I think he is stressing over nothing. I have been close to that before and worked it out. One year I had to go looking for wood in the woods. I made it. I am sure we will too. In the meantime, I am enjoying the thaw and getting ready for the next cold spell.
Saw Dr. Mulcahy today. Had a good visit. He put me back on antibiotics and anti-fungal meds, but that was to be expected. He was somewhat amazed that I have stuck to my diet and not eaten any wheat, dairy, sugar, nightshades, etc. I told him it was hard during the holidays as there was so much around, but I made it through. He said I could have a cookie or piece of candy and see how I reacted. The trick is only eating one piece of candy or one cookie. Not easy for a sugar addict.
Been back to work the last two Saturdays. Hard, but felt good to be there. It wasn’t the cold that got me, it was wearing so much clothing I couldn’t figure out how to wear my back brace. The result is that my back and legs hurt. I will attempt to do better this week. Thanks for all the positive feedback and concern. It helps.
