"Happy 29th Anniversary Leigh!" [Oct. 9th, 2011|09:49 am]

[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]





I'm so grateful for 29 years with the best guy I know - & talk about
"In sickness & in health"
A good portion of the last 5 years have been spent together like this:








I've managed to stay out of the hospital so far this year - but ...don't want to jinx it XD
it's been quite a medical journey since the start of my ulcer surgery gone wrong in 2006 - & I've made
great strides. Nutrition is a struggle - not sure if I still have "rickets" but I keep losing my teeth~ arrggh




I've had to have several teeth extracted due to bone infections - (due to gastric bypass & other surgeries, my system doesn't absorb nutrients effectively) I was eating a lot of nuts for protein, but losing molars makes chewing difficult.

I've had a UTI (urinary tract infection) that has been resistant to 2 rounds of antibiotics (bactrim then Cipro)
>.<... but I'm not complaining - just keeping a lj record of what's going on

You are very fortunate to have someone who always accompany you in all conditions.
He must really love you. I'm always touched by things like this.

I'm sorry to hear that (all the bad things that happen to you)
But this proves that you are a strong woman.
You don't complain with all this. I admire you.
I hope your condition is getting better.

+hugs+

congrats on your anniversary. I also admire your attitude...I'm sure it must be difficult for both of you at times, but you never complain and find so much to be happy about. I still love your wedding dress. I recently had a delicious nut mylk shake which had a lot of protein...have you tried anything like that?

I hope you have a complete healing soon...

Happy Anniversary! this is quite an accomplishment and i think you are both pretty lucky to have found such supportive and caring partners in each other. ^ ^

Kudos as well for staying OOH[out of hospital, like OOB (out of bed), only better] for this year. in light of previous years, like last year, this one seems more business as usual, not totally free of trouble, but manageable perhaps.

and boy do i know about the tooth problem. having that issue myself. nuts without molars is tough. i'm always scared to eat anything crunchy, that yet another tooth will crumble away and the bits have to be extracted. >.<

good luck wishes and a big *hug* sent your way!! <3

Congratulations! It's wonderful to have someone through your side like that, through thick and thin. I feel you on the UTI. Bladder infection took three rounds of antibiotics and seven months to full clear out and for my bladder to right itself again. I hope the UTI clears up soon. *hugs* Keep healing!

Congratulations!

>_< I hope your health continues to improve! Not being in the hospital all year is awesome! When I had dental surgury I couldn't really CHEW, but wanted protein so i would eat eggs, which need very little chewing! Also my cousin was trying the "raw vegan" thing.... which she is convinced is healthy, I don't believe it to be economically feasible for most of the world and requires so much study to actually get the proper nutrition from that most people trying it would suffer from malnutrition. But I digress, most of her recipes were like pureed nuts and seeds to take the place of meat. She had a food processor and just pureed the bastards.

Please, take care..
About nuts, I know a soft one, It is dehydrated peaches.

Peaches are placed to dehydrate to the sun, and after, they are cooked in water with sugar (delicious :D).

The dried peaches have enough calories and a good dose of iron and potassium.

I hope you feel better very soon, a hug from Chile :)
