The last Friday of September and it’s not only still hot but the wind is trying to blow Texas all the way to Kansas!
Yesterday I drank this tea all day. It was just that good. I did drop one drop of Maple Syrup in there and what a treat that was!
First, thank you all for your suggestions and good thoughts. This was probably the worst flare-up I’ve had. At one point I wasn’t sure if I had a kidney stone or if this was just another Crohn’s thing. It is a vicious circle of pain which leads to anxiety and can quickly become depression. Last night I ate solid food. It stayed down.
My energy level is way up and except for a small amount of bloating, I’m doing better.
I think it looks like a cute little baby bump. This was yesterday and today it’s pretty much back to normal. Steroids are a bitch for bloating and other nasty side effects, but they work.
The funny (odd) thing about Gastro diseases is one day a certain food is okay for you and the next you’re doubled over in pain. It’s all trial and error. Food becomes the enemy. Once a day I have my Spinach/Kale/Parsley/Pineapple/Wild Blueberry Smoothie with some Spirulina, Chia Seeds and Moringa Powder, maybe some fresh ginger. My doctor had me add a half teaspoon of Coconut Oil to the mix to help me digest it better. So I know I’m getting my nutrients. Now that Fall is here (somewhere) things will be easier because I can digest the heck out of some root veg and squash soups. Parsnip-Apple Soup is my favorite.
Totally out of the blue, but do y’all know about Brad’s Deals? Every morning in my email I get a list of the best deals ever! Secret type deals. Today’s was Cheryl’s assortment of gourmet Halloween cookies. Shipping included it was $10.85! They are so good and gorgeous as well, so I ordered enough to ship to my mom and Miss Evangeline as well as some for a photoshoot! They also right now have the Amazon Fire Bundle that sells for around $170.00 for $45. Heck yeah, I ordered two of those! Christmas is coming. I have been ordering from them for a long time and I have never once been disappointed. I found my mom a Kate Spade handbag for 75% off. No, I don’t work for them, but here is the link. Guard it.
