I know it's been forever since a posting, but I really wish I had a lot of news to give to you.

I'm still suffering through the rheumatic fever I spoke about last time, and I'm going to see a rheumatologist in a couple of days. Hopefully I can get past all of this pain I've had.

I've reduced the amount of prednisone I'm taking so that I don't feel like I'm crawling out of my skin. It has also helped a little in slowing down my appetite.

My weight has stayed constant now since Thanksgiving, hovering with about an eight pound range, but never getting lower than it was around Thanksgiving. I'm really hoping that will change soon.

I'm eating way too much - I feel like my stomach has stretched too far and I've blown the money I spent on surgery. But that's only some of the time. Just last night, I became very stuffed after only eating a few things.

I still have some emotional and behavioral isues to address, and I've decided to work on those very carefully in the next few weeks. I'll write more about those soon.

The best news I have to report is that my very, very, very good friend Mary just had her RnY done yesterday and is recovering very well in Charlotte. The warm feeling I have inside that she's had this surgery is one of the few bright spots right now in all of this horrible suffering. But a bright spot it is - I'm so proud of her, and so incredibly excited for her and her husband Dan as they start a new life that she will find absolutely amazing.

Take care, and please write your comments. I've missed reading those.

Keep your heads up and keep fighting.
