After four months of worry and fretting and tears...I took my first steps this morning.

And I haven't stopped crying since.

There is a long way to go...but I walked.

Thank you Brad...your last special recipe was the best fish recipe I've ever had!

I like most proteins except organ meats. No yucky liver for me. Larry says I can eat as much cheese as I like though!

Nancy,

I am considering developeing a recipe with berries from Huckleberry mountain and pairing it with buffalo from jackson hole.

The reason i'm thinking of these foods is so you can make something that comforts you.


What do you think?

Congratulations Nancy. I feel for ya babe! Good timing to start again. Spring and summer are coming up, this may be the one you'll appreciate more than the rest.
Itwill all pass and one day you'll look back and even though you will remember it all it will be hard to believe that it actually happened (believe me I know!)
Best of luck and health as always!!

Good for you and may I recommend that you look into swimming; it's a gravity free activity!

Thank you for the good wishes...all of you! I'd be bouncing around and hugging you all like crazy if this were in person!

Thanks, Isabel, my PT keeps cautioning me to go slow...but at least we are headed in the right direction. And Phoebe...it was great that you looked around my site...that's what it's there for. But I'm not amazing...I'm just stubborn.

Oh...spring and summer...the months with very little snow. I do look forward to them and to rebuilding my life...making something better out of winter brown.

Brad...buffalo and huckleberries sound like a great combination. And local too. I'm looking forward to it.

Hugs and kisses to all!!

Dietary Alterations

Nancy:
I would recommend that you take the following supplements to improve and accelerate healing:

Vit. C - stimulates collagen production; it's everywhere in the body.

Glucosamine, Chondrointin and (perhaps) MSM - they all contain substances that are integral to joint construction and that your adult body no longer manufactures. A side effect is that you may notice faster growth of finger and toe nails.

Once again, thank you all for your encouragement and support. It means a lot to me.

kokopuffs...I'm taking diabetic supplements - extra C and e and some other stuff...I'd like to try the other but there is just no way to fund it right now. But I will keep it in mind. They also have me on an arginine supplement that is supposed to help wound healing.....don't know if it's working but can tell you I'm tired of fizzy pink drinks (with no vodka). Medicaid will pay for that...won't pay for Glucosamine, etc.

BTW...do you have a recommendation specific to hair? My hair has fallen out...according to Larry because of the physcial trauma....it's supposed to regrow someday but I have one skinny ponytail for now.

Nancy:
As to hair I'll need to investigate although I use ROGAINE. I noticed an immediate thickening upon first use ("you keep the hair that you have"). You can get ROGAIN from ebay (verify the expiration date) at around $6.00 per bottle, one month's supply. It costs at least $25.00 retail.

ROGAINE was used in the treatment of high blood pressure where it would dialate the blood vessels, therefore lowering it by eliminating constriction. Discuss with your physician on this matter, please.

Hair loss can stem from certain drug use, especially during cancer treatment. Cancer is a "foreign" protein. Some drugs fail to distinguish between the cancer and your own protein, some of which is hair. So the loss could be a drug reaction.

good luck,
Terry

SHAMPOO

Nancya:

Ah, I just remembered, shampoo. Ever notice that the hair of females is thicker than that of the male? Well, it's estrogen that's the agent. Estrogen thickens hair. Visit your local well stocked health food store and inquire if shampoo containing placenta or placental extracts is available. It might help with your condition.
