I am emotionally overwhelmed this morning. I am thankful to God and to all of our family and friends who have supported us through the years. We wouldn't be here without all my friends and advisers at cushings-help.com. Thank you all. The tears are flowing.
So, the big news? Today is Alex's first day of work. I truly believed that it was likely she would never be well enough to leave the house; that she would live with us forever on permanent disability into adulthood. Many times I felt she would die before she was cured. It is incomprehensible that after only 3 weeks she has shown such vast improvement.
There have been a lot of ups and downs over the past couple weeks, but the steady progress forward is apparent. The GI stuff has all normalized, we hope that means Crohn's is a thing of the past but realize this may just be a remission. The headaches have been bad, but we think that once we get the dosages stable on both the hydro and fludro things will improve. Most mornings she is up at 7:00 or 7:30 feeling fine but there seems to be a mid afternoon crash, with tiredness and headache for the rest of the day. We are still working on it.
Stay tuned for more positive updates!
