    Since July I have blood tests once or twice a month but it's mainly to check my ferritin and infections. D is only checked three times per year (insurance policy).

    I've been taking supplements for year, but was taking a break from my omegas since my stomach was a mess. With the PPI I've been able to take those again (omega 3) and also curcuma, because my joints started to hurt a lot. It did help, but I also did change a few things in my diet to help decrease inflammation. Sometimes it's hard to know what's really helping!! But for sure, when my D is low, I get all cold/flue/viruses possible. Here with the anemia it's been worth than ever, I'm lucky I didn't get pneumonia again!!

    Can wait for Summer!!!

    I hope you will feel better soon!

    Take care!
    Thank you! I am definitely on the mend! Finally!

    I am finally done with my 5 day IV steroid sentence! My blood pressure has finally went down and my sugar has been decent since I'm strictly on low carb now. Still no feeling from the waist down where 5 days ago it was from the chest down. Slowly but surely, it's happening. I'm going to take my kids to get their pictures taken this weekend if I can drive. Time to get back to this healthy road! Hope everyone is doing well!
