I know- I was amazed.  But she normally eats an entire steak by herself, plus a few veggies.  I'm not sure that I can completely skip the meat for her last meal of the day on a regular basis.  

 

Sorry about your back.  :(

 

Ack- speaking of legs hurting.... DD has been complaining about that a lot more frequently- she's saying that she hurt her leg, and points to the ankle/shin/knee area.  Curious.  

 

eta:  Oh- and someone just started a glutathione thread, and needs opinions on brands and things.  I need some too.  ;)

Did I miss a January 2011 Chat thread? We could wait until 1-11-11 for poetic effect.

The osteo said 1 twice a day. Maybe I'll see about giving him an extra one in the middle of the day on weekends. I don't know how to explain to him how to tell me when he feels that bubbly feeling....

I have to find the thread. I'm just saying duplicate the pattern. And do meat in the morning and lunch and/or late afternoon, but not right before bed, and then do a "snack" or small meal of veggies before bed, and see if you get the same result again. I'm not saying cut out some of her calories. Just saying switching it around might be good for her.

That's a good idea!

I totally forgot... I added some mag to her spiked honey yesterday for the first time.  Maybe that was the magical sleep inducer?  I guess we'll find out tonight- she had her usual steak and broccoli, and she had the honey w/mag earlier.  fingersx.gif

I haven't even read before this page.  I just realized that the reason I feel busy is that I am.  I cooked enough food today for 2-3 days and I need to do the same tomorrow, I'm visiting a friend for most of the day.  Then Thursdays are busy again, so Wednesday I'll be cooking ahead more.  It'll be good to have plenty of real, cooked food in the freezer (I've been winging it for WAY too long) but wow, cooking takes a lot of time, and I'm getting caught up on stuff like making kimchee and rendering lard--okay, that makes me feel better, I don't have to do either every week.

 

CS--before I got all behind, I saw you asked about formula.  What are your reasons against?  The non-real-food aspect is obvious, and it's got to be costly (is there any way to get help with the cost?  maybe now that she's got a diagnosis, would some sort of insurance cover it?), are there other reasons too?  Because it seems like it might be reasonable.  It's not like you're going to give up figuring out why she's got an eosinophilic disorder, but as a stopgap for a while, it seems reasonable.  But I may be, likely am, missing some of your concerns. 

 

I need to finish up in the kitchen and then get to bed.  So tired, even with a nap.  Oh, maybe that's the lack of caffeine.  Bummer.  I think I'll be in bed by 10pm for my adrenals.  Night-night all.

Kathy- I made the chicken recipe that you posted the other day.... yum.  DP loved it too.  Of course, how could anyone not love the combo of chicken, bacon, onions, and potatoes?!

Yeah- mostly the fact that it's crazy highly-processed stuff.  I'm guessing that her insurance would cover it, but not positive.  Plus, it's supposed to taste like ass.... and I hate to have her love for food be destroyed because I'm urging her to drink something that's disgusting.  AND the fact that I'm 90% sure she's not going to tolerate any of it, which means that we'll spend 1-2 weeks trialing each kind, with a couple weeks in between each one to get back to normal....

I just had a fairly bad reaction to something. I was driving back from picking up my Azure Standard order, eating dates I had just gotten (definitely cc), with a bag of chicken feed (definitely full of wheat) I grabbed from the dropsite for someone else, and I stopped at Goodwill to use the bathroom and check the tag sale. The bathroom reeked of fragrance from a cleaning product. After I peed, I went to wash my hands and looked in the mirror and my face, neck, chest, and ears were all red/blotchy and bubbly and I felt very hot, itchy, and faint. I washed my hands quickly and went outside. I was scared so I called my friend who I knew would be coming from the dropsite and asked her to stop and check on me. By the time she got there, my face wasn't very red anymore and I was feeling better so I decided to drive home. It's been about an hour and a half and all the redness is gone, I feel better but still a little itchy. Kind of freaked out though. Never had a reaction like that. I think despite the confounding factors, I am leaning towards a reaction to the cleaning product at Goodwill since it went a way fairly quickly once I was outside.

I did used to get panic attacks at the mall, and I know smell sensitivity was one of the main triggers. I haven't had any problems in a long time. The last time I can remember was almost 2 years ago when I was using Mrs. Meyer's cleaning product with geranium fragrance to clean the kitchen. I sprayed it and immediately got all light headed and hot. I didn't notice at the time if I turned red or anything, but this time I wouldn't have noticed how red I was except the mirror was right there.

Glad you're ok and your symptoms left pretty fast.
