Itsy Bitsy Spider...nightmare?

So last night at about 3am I woke up thinking there was giant spider coming down from the ceiling. I jumped over (not up, cause I didn't want to hit the spider) woke Kyle up (cause I didn't want him to get bit) went carefully around where I thought the spider was and turned on the lights and looked where I thought the spider dangling... to my surprise it was gone. So of course I told Kyle to help me find it, we lifted up the covers looking for a bit, until Kyle said, there's nothing here, come back to bed and go to sleep, so reluctantly I crawled back into bed, paranoid that the giant spider would attack any minute.

Easter treats

So for Easter this year I decided to be a little ambitious and make a cute treat. With the help of
Kyle I made these rice crispy eggs, which he dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. They were super
yummy! I was going to make half of them with white chocolate, but we ran out of time, so I will
have to try those a different day =]

Most amazing husband

So as you all know I have been really sick, which doesn't only affect me, but also affects Kyle. He has been amazing through it all. He helps me eat, helps me get dressed sometimes, helps me wash my hair, and well he helps
me with ALOT of things, simple things I used to take for granted.
He loves me sooo so much, I truley feel like I am the most luckiest girl in the world. I cannot
wait til I'm better, so I can be the best wife I can be =]
I would truley be lost without him...he has been the biggest blessing in my life. I love him so
much words cannot even say.
He does not judge me, or get frustrated withe little or big things I need help with.
He is, to put it simply, the most amazing husband ever <3


Sooo this morning we got a call from doctor's nurse saying that they didn't want me to take the zinc anymore! So now all I have to do is take the trientine, and follow rule # 1...which won't be hard cause it doesn't make me sick woot!!!!! =D yay! I'm excited!! (just in case you couldn't tell haha)
Uhmm anyways just thought I'd share the awesome news =] that's all for now.
Oh! and also, I took my meds perfectly the past two days =] go me!

new medicine!

So yesterday was my first day of new meds. The doctor put me on a drug called trientine (syprine) I've been on it once before, when my zinc stopped working in highschool...a very scary time for me. As well as zinc accetate (galzin), again.
Two meds at the same time, not hard right? Wrong, oh so very very wrong. These two medicines are probably one of the most complicated to take together.
Rule 1: the trientine has to be taken at least an hour before I eat or two hours after I eat...nothing to drink besides water during that time.
Rule 2: the zinc has to be taken the exact same way.
Rule 3: they cannot be taken at the same time.
So here is my tentative schedule:
wake up take trientine
wait an hour
wait two hours
take zinc
wait an hour
take trientine
wait an hour
and repeat until I have all 3 doses taken, so no more snacking for me =[ oh well as long as it makes me better =]
the trientine doesn't make feel sick at all woo! the zinc still does though sometimes boo
oh well such is life =]
Oh aaaand the best part of all this medicine torture is...drumroll....I should be starting to see results in 3 weeks!!! Yep that's right 3 WEEKS!! WoOt!!!
Anywhos, that's all for now. =]
