    I'm sorry about the cheese rations that has to stink. I think the only thing I am allowed to eat anymore is salt. Too much sugar makes me crash (hypoglycemic), caffeine makes my heart race, and fat well with my chron's disease in full swing just looking at it reminds me of the white throne that I have been frequenting sooo much.

    So, I know how you feel on not being able to have what you like. What I'd give to be able to handle a slice of Pizza Hut Supreme Pizza right about now!

    Now I'm jealous--it really hurt when my daily cheese allowance had to go away. Too much sodium and I turn into a zeppelin.

    take care,

    NO cheesiness allowed--too much sodium and way too many grams of fat! Gotta think about the diet, you know.

    Harry says to say hi and we are both so glad you are starting to hit that road to recovery. I really believe the blood loss you had is a significant cause in your slow recovery. Harry's appointment is on Thursday and I hope to have a date for the op by then, I'm so excited and not put off in any way by what's happened to you. Complications are a sad fact of life, I've been through it and I am fit and strong today (one thing about this kinda stuff, boy do you learn what's important in life).
