Just a quick update on recent medical stuff…..
Anti-Seizure Medication: I’m doing well on Keppra (1500 mg/2x daily) – no seizure activity, fatigue and mental clarity have improved.
Anemia: Bloodwork results have come back and I am anemic again – need to be sure to take my iron every day.
Ulcer: Sucralfate seems to be healing my ulcer. I’m able to swallow without difficulty and I’m eating more.
Weight: I’m up to 115 pounds, eating better since starting treatment for ulcer and fungal infection two weeks ago. I’ve gotten back in the habit of tracking weight, diet and exercise on Livestrong.com which helps me to ensure that I get enough calories and proper nutrition each day.
Later this morning I’ll meet with an internist. I’m hoping to find a new primary care doctor who will help me to “connect the dots”, keeping an eye on the big picture as I continue to work with my specialists.
