It is so bizarre! I really don't understand how this happens but Alex's appearance is changing. She looks like she has lost a lot of weight but she hasn't actually lost any at all. Her face shape is different and her belly looks so much smaller. Brian thought it might be the change from fat to more muscle but that doesn't make sense at this point. She is still doing absolutely nothing; well, okay she did leave the house yesterday for the first time, but she sure isn't doing anything to build muscle yet!
Years ago when I first believed that Cushing's was the issue there were times we would see her face shape change. Every once in a while we would be sitting at the table eating dinner and Brian and I would look at her and look at each other and both see it at the same time. That silent communication thing (30 years together) where we said nothing but silently acknowledged that she had changed yet again before out eyes.
I am excited! It feels like we are started down a road to recovery!
