    Happy Mothers Day
    I got a very good night's sleep and my throat and leg are both better. I will not be able to take the muscle relaxer during the work day because it makes me sleepy. I was dozing on the couch this morning after taking it.

    The stress of this event has set off some bad things. What I noticed is that I am having the symptoms of irregular heart rate that I had as part of my adrenal crash last year. As I start to fall asleep, my heart rate dives from the 70s into the 50s. Then I wake with a start. This is a type of apnea and can be extremely dangerous.

    I have been very flippant about the fact that I take coumadin and that keeping my clotting factors level between 2-3 is essential. If I go below 2 by eating too much, I could make clots. If then I clean up my act and go too high, the clots could break off and kill me. This makes my binging especially dangerous. I will be ordering my own blood monitor and checking once a week at least.

    This brings me to nutrition. As much as I love lchf and fasting, I think that for now I will go with the even balance of macros. Carbs 50-100, protein 75 to 100, fat 100ish. I need to be eating some vegetables. When I have my monitor, I can try some fasts or lchf days and adjust my coumadin intake accordingly.

    Sadly, I have to give up on the weight loss goal for now. I will have to stop weighing.
    My health is at stake. Being so debilitated scared me. How is it related to nutrition you ask? It was only 2 weeks ago that I had my horrible binge week. Mark wrote an article in June 2008 about binging and how it debilitates your immune system. I binge about every 2 weeks, so my immune system never recovers. I likely got the infection due to weakened immunity. I pulled my groin muscle by tossing around in bed trying to find a comfortable position because my ear hurt so much.

    Several things just happened at once here so I need to add 2 more separate posts.

    P, even if you have to give up the weight loss goal, you are taking care of yourself and being incredibly smart about it. I'm so glad you are finding answers, even when they're not exactly what you'd hoped they'd be. It's hard to face the reality of our own personal situations, but it sounds like you are doing that well.

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Bill arrived home from DE with Mother's Day gifts in tow. The boys wrapped them quickly and gave them to me. My card said, "Mom, I now know your secret identity. Can I borrow the invisible Plane" The card plays the WW theme.

    I got candles, a candle snuffer, tea, the Les Mis movie and a Gretchen Wilson CD.

    I am having a lovely, relaxing day.

    Excellent gifts! Hulky and I made pancakes because we are "cat moms" . The cat enjoyed a trip through the wet tub just after my shower (she likes doing this) and then a nice rub down from me (that is why she goes and gets herself wet!).

    After the flurry of all that he told me the following.

    "Aunt Mary passed away this morning at around 11 am."

    How appropriate that everyone's second Mother would pass on Mother's Day. Heaven received a great lady today.
    I am so glad I sent Bill down there. He seems peaceful with it now. Unfortunately, He has to call her other brother and all of his children who live near us.

    oh.. a bitter sweet Mothers Day. I am feeling for your family right now. How great that he got to head down to DE before she passed though. Hang in there wonder woman.

    Crazy week ahead.

    Feeling even better today, but debating the muscle relaxer. My leg muscle feels as if it is on the verge of going out again, but the pill makes me so sleepy.

    This week we have 2 rehearsals for BOB, then sound check and the show on Friday.

    Aunt Mary's funeral will be some time this week. I can't really afford to miss 2 days of school to go down there. I wasn't actually expecting to go to DE for the funeral until I heard my husband say to someone on the phone that we would be there.
    I tried to put this to him without having a fight. He said lets just wait and see when they decide to do things. If the funeral is Saturday, things will be easier. His other suggestion was that he take the big boys and I stay home with Kevin. Unfortunately, Billy has an AP exam this week.

    I also signed up to do my final observation and teacher responsibilities meeting. I have not had enough time to gather all of the evidence that I need by tomorrow morning. I may postpone this.

    Stress building up already...
