It has been a while since I have updated this little nook I created for myself. I feel like so much has happened in my life; but really, not much has been going on aside from trying to rehab my knee.
Given it has been 3 years since I have been dealing with this nonsense, I have had it up to here (hand to forehead). It is a frustrating journey to put it lightly, but I just keep hoping one day a doctor works on me in SOME way and it just all changes for the better. Right now, though, we are looking at going to UPenn or the Mayo Clinic because I have gotten every test, biopsy, and scan known to my surgeon. There is nothing coming up and my knee looks good on film, but the thing does NOT want to stop filling with fluid. Oy.
Aside from my knee, I have been spending time with Elmo (obviously) and trying to just better my nutrition. My ED has gotten so much better but I still have a ways to go. Sometimes I feel like I’ll never fully be recovered, but then I recover more and realize it’s a journey. I struggle with certain things but the more I just try new things or go out of the “norm”, the easier it becomes to accept my healthy weight. It is tough but worth it. So, so worth it.
Elmo is doing really well! He has severe allergies to something and has to be on medication all the time or he completely bites himself to being raw. I feel so bad for him. His skin and everything was breaking out all over the place. He was a mess for a while and I was really worried about him. He’s doing good, though! Spunky and energetic, as always!
OH! And I am now an Aunt!!! My brother and his girlfriend had a baby girl, Sophia Rose. To say she’s gorgeous would be the understatement of the century. Those cheeks! UGH. I just love her and I know she’s going to be spoiled already. As if going into Target wasn’t tough already now there are baby clothes!!!
Off to finish watching Kelly and Michael (still my fave) and go to a doctor’s appointment!!
