It's been a while since I have logged into Sparkpeople. I have been sick and in the hospital.I guess I don't have Celiac after all. I have two bleeding ulcers which kicked into overtime and I ended up in ICU. I knew I was sick, I just didn't know why. Taking care of two handicapped children, now adults for over twenty years have taken their internal toll on my body and normally my stress levels are high anyway. I just never thought about it. My highest weight was 360 but today it is 266 and going downward once more. Food is not such a problem anymore; eating right is. No more sodium at all. Blood pressure coming down to a normal reading and weight dropping. So much salt in processed (canned, frozen ) foods. No crackers, no chips, no salted nuts, it all adds to a high blood pressure. I also have to limit water. First time I have ever heard of this. I can only have 22 ozs of fluid a day plus meds. I met all kind of angels in the hospital and they are all doing their best to help me. My doctor is the kindest of all. While I was "out of it", in ICU, my ICU nurse sang to me "Happy Birthday". I was in ICU on my birthday.
