I'm Back

Hi all. Sorry I was gone for so long. Lots have happened. We had a great time on vacation in Disney. Phoebe collected Disney pins as souveniers and she went on every big bad roller coaster in each of the parks. We also got to go to the one water park, Typhoon Lagoon. She learned to love Epcot as much as us. She loved the pastries in France the most. My favorite ride was Soarin'. I wouldn't go on a roller coaster if you put a gun to my head. Thankfully, DH went on all the roller coasters with Phoebe.

I also got my period when we were on vacation, so I got to call the RE to schedule my laporoscopy. I had the surgery this past Friday, 2/22/08. I'm a bit disappointed as it turns out the endometriosis was pretty bad. The doctor said he got about 90% of it. It's a bit disheartening considering all the Chinese herbs and supplements I've taken. I guess it's good to know what I'm up against and that at least there is a reason for all these problems.

I've decided to try a macrobiotic diet to calm down my immune system and purge the sludge from my body. It might be great for the extra backside I carry around. I bought two books at Borders today to help: Cooking the Whole Foods Way and The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics. So far what I can understand is to get rid of dairy, meat and chicken. You are allowed fish, especially white fish. It includes whole grains and lots of veggies. We'll see how it goes. I've been very good so far today.

Glad you had a great trip. Sounds like lots of fun!

Sorry to hear about your medical discoveries but as you say; at least you know what you're up against now.

All the best with the new diet!
