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
