9 Weeks, Down 4 Pounds

Not much to report. Its kind of just a waiting game now. How long will the misery last? Could be another 4 weeks, could be another 10 weeks. Can't really compare it to last time anymore, it's just too different.

I'm starting to get sore from sitting or laying around all day, so I'm sort of pacing the house until I get dizzy. For those of you who've been to our place, you know it quite small, so I feel sort of like a hamster in a cage. But it's better than bed sores I suppose!

A friend stopped by yesterday with bags and bags of food! A huge lasagna (I even ate a little bit) and all sorts of fresh fruit and veggies and lemon cookies! What an angel!! Anyways, we were chatting and I happened to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and almost fell over. My hair was sticking out from my very stylish messy bun in every direction. My teenage acne was red and raw on my chin. My face was pale and gaunt. And dehydration has sparked some pretty lovely exzema around the edges of my hairline! Lovely. She later told me I looked better than she expected...she must have known how humiliated I was to be seen!

P.S. I'd heard that the comment option wasn't working. I've fiddled around and it should work now. So comment away...if you're so inclined!


  1. Hang in there Special K! I know your mostly bedridden, but maybe you could find a very mild pilates video for when you want a little movement. It might help with the stir craziness and keep a little muscle tone so you don't feel so blah. Of course that is easy to say unless you can't move! I love the jelly bean nickname. I called Jax that when he was itty bitty, b/c my only cravings were jelly bellys jelly beans!
    Thinking of you :)

  2. We're rooting for you! Every day down is one less that you have to go through with this, right? Looking forward to cooking for you and watching the kids play next week. :) XOX
