We had been busy with family the first week of January and this weekend we spent with Beverly. So, there hasn't been a lot of "me" time for blogging. Also, I had some internet and cable technical difficulties, but now I think those are ironed out as well!
Yesterday I started an Isagenix 9 day cleanse. You start right out of the gate with 2 days of no food, but of course supplements and liquids and tons of water. Isagenix is different, because it is a whole body type of a deal, instead of just a poop cleanse (to try not to be too gross). I felt pretty good the whole day, and every time I was hungry there was always a little something more for me to drink or eat. They do have these nasty little snack things, which I detest, but I went ahead and followed the plan. And guess what, I am starting day 2 feeling quite a lot better than I had the day before I started. The tension in my back muscles is less and I feel clear in the head and energetic. I am excited to see how well I feel throughout this next week and afterwards.
Yesterday was a house cleaning day, and I also decided to rearrange the furniture. The lines and use of space had been bugging me and now I am much happier with the way things look and feel around here! I'll show you pics in a second.
Today Carla and I are going to head over to the hospital for a blood draw. We have an appointment with the transplant clinic next week and I would like the results of the antibody test at the appointment. I am hoping that her antibodies have come down a bit more, because if not, the plan will most likely be to start meds to bring them down. As they come down, she will be a good candidate for more hearts...and we are ready for her perfect heart.
Carla's cough FINALLY went away the other day and I am so happy to report that her lungs sound very clear and well. Now, the key will be to just keep her healthy! Which we are working hard on doing and I am sure being in this apartment has helped considerably :)
