There is a lot of excitement surrounding my girl's new treatment, #IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulin). But there is also a lot of uncertainty. 😞 This is a blood plasma product and there are many potential side effects, some of which are very severe. We won't see immediate results as it will take a few months to really take effect. πŸ“† But it's the long term, positive potential that we need to focus on in order to get through whatever challenges it may pose. ✊ We hope that IVIG will give my girl's immune system exactly what it needs to regulate itself more efficiently and become stronger. This is a treatment, not a cure. But it's a very promising treatment nonetheless! πŸŽ‰ My girl is slightly nervous, but mostly excited to begin this new chapter on her journey to better health! Tomorrow is her first infusion, let's do this together - Hand in paw. πŸ’ͺ❀🐾 A big thank you to blood/plasma donors, and another big thank you to y'all for all the encouragement and support! πŸ˜„

There is a lot of excitement surrounding my #IVIG, but there is also a lot of uncertainty. 😞 This is a blood plasma product, so there are already many potential side effects. Severe flu-like symptoms, body pains, dehydration, etc. πŸ˜“ More serious reactions include anaphylaxis, aseptic meningitis (swelling of the brain lining), and possibly triggering an Angioedema Attack. My complex medical history greatly increases these risks. 😬 I'm praying for as little negative effects as possible, but I've been told that the first few months of IVIG are brutal. Once you make it through that, then you start to feel human again. ✊ My medical team has determined that the benefits definitely outweigh the risks, but it will take a few months to start seeing results (it won't be immediate). πŸ“† Also, IVIG is a treatment, not a cure. But it's a very promising treatment nonetheless! πŸŽ‰ It's the long term, positive potential that I need to focus on in order to get through whatever challenging side effects the IVIG may give me. ✊ However, I may not experience any negative effects at all! I'll just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings. It's all in God's hands and I fully trust in Him. πŸ™ I'm very grateful for blood/plasma donors and all the continuous support y'all offer! Yes, I'm a bit nervous. But mostly, I'm ready to start this next chapter in my journey to better health! πŸ’ͺ Tomorrow is my #NewDay! β˜‰

Why do I only drink hot water? This is a habit I grew up with:❀️ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
In TCM, waterπŸ’§ is cold and yin, stomach is the stove of our body and the stove needs fireπŸ”₯ to cook and transport nutrients to different parts of body. Long term consumption of cold water, slowly turns off the fire from stove, resulting abnormal function of digestion, leading to malnutrition, and a weak immune system. Too much cold accumulation in our body also causes poor circulation, intestinal cramps, and abdominal pain.

βœ”οΈFor young children, their organs are delicate, after consuming lots of cold foods (cold milk, ice cream, sandwiches, salads) cold water, and cold juices. Their stomachs (stoves) becomes colder and colder, leading to all kinds digestive problems, sinus problems, allergies, hay fever, and asthma, ... In "Yellow Emperor's" master Classic of chineses medicine, "cold constitute with cold drinks hurt the lung" (cold constitution here means overconsumption of cold foods turn our body type to extreme cold). In five elements stomach is the mother of the lung, when the mother (stomach) has no fireπŸ”₯to digest food, the lung (son) will not be nourished properly, thus weaken lung, and causing problems such as
allergies, sinus, rhinitis, and asthma. So we need to keep the fireπŸ”₯on the stove, to help keep mother (stomach) and lung (son) healthy.

βœ”οΈExcessive drinking of cold water also affect development and physiological functions of the reproductive system, for young ladies, it can cause menstrual cramps, menstrual disorders, and excessive discharge.😨Over accumulation of cold creates "chilled palace" which means extreme cold uterus, ovary, ovarian tube, and lead to over growth of dampness, fibrous ,ovarian cysts, tumors, dysmenorrhea, and infertility.πŸ™
βœ”οΈIn hot summer days, it feels good to drink ice cold water, but our body is supposed to expel excess heat through sweat, but cold water inhibit all sweat to sweat out, causing heat retain inside our body, can easily lead to heat stroke. πŸ”₯

on monday I waved my little white flag of surrender and came into the joint. I needed help. my PFTS showed my lung function was 36%😳my last test was in January I was at 60%. So needless to say they wouldn't let me leave and I was happy to come in for treatment.
I am sooo grateful to our good friends who love and take Hawke as their own while i'm here. and today I played the most memberable game of hungry hungry hippos. Just what I needed!
.
at this time we aren't 100% sure of what is going on to cause such a drastic change, but are praying the doctors are guided to find it correctly. but nonetheless, this is just a speed bump in the road, we will conquer! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ#conquerall

Guess I'm craving pasta. I've never had the lasagna before but I love the Kite Hill Ravioli! #carbs #pasta #vegan #vegetarian #foodallergies #drinkyourveggies #asthma #eczema #plantbased #wholefoods #amysorganic #kitehill

Baloo was with our friend when she had an asthma attack. If you've ever been unable to breathe, you know you can't get up and look around for your inhaler. I'd started Baloo on recognizing the scent of inhalers (and Epi-pens) months ago, and my friend I think had gestured up at the counter, so he found it right away.

One month between these two pictures, except for the back, that was between January and now. Talk about a total dick punch... Shouldn't be surprised though, I'm just now regaining my appetite from the depression. Hard to make big gains when you aren't eating 3500cals a day like you used to. I have gained a few pounds though. Maybe y'all can see some difference, as for me, I'm slightly disappointed. Going into May like a madman, I want real progress.

And I was coming down from an arm pump in the pictures on the left and the top. Definitely haven't lost mass in my arms.

I just ran my fastest 2 miles since picking up running again, nothing beats freezing rain, cold winds, total darkness and Christian Music during your 12:00 A.M. run. I won't freeze to death, but I just may die from the worst asthma attack ever! #PR #MidNight #Running #TeamNoSleep #Insomnia #Asthma #Rain #Snow #Spring #Weather #Fitness #Nike #CarbsGotMeLike

Well another Friday night where I get to stay in. Every time I stand up my heart rate skyrocketsπŸš€, leading to a drop⬇️ in my blood pressure, I then get massively dizzy which then makes me nauseated🀒. I'm hotπŸ”₯. I'm cold❄️. Which then I can't remember anything that I need to sayπŸ€”. It's so frustrating at times but at least this time I didn't faint😡Hopefully tomorrow is a better day. ❀️Surgery countdown 1 month 17 days πŸŽ—οΈ

Photo from my procedure day β€’β€’β€’ My biopsy spot in my throat somehow ended up irritated tonight. It's hurting, it's kind of hard to swallow and my neck is a little swollen. πŸ’€ I've been off of my Cyproheptadine -the medication I use to keep my appetite up- for like 2 weeks now and my appetite is in the toilet. I haven't had a decent meal since Wednesday. I don't think I'm going to get back to normal until I get my meds and they're just being ordered tonight. Very over being sick right now.
