Absolutely Famished.. and not sure why!

Yeah, I'm starving. Ever since I got home from the hospital, when I haven't been sleeping, I have been EATING! I have gained 5 lbs in a week. I have no idea where this is coming from, but I'll take it!!!

Since my body is allergic to the IV antibiotic I am on, and I have to be desensitized to it in order for my body to even accept it, I always feel horrible the few weeks that I take it. I sleep a lot, am tired when I'm not sleeping, my fibromyalgia acts up, my diabetes acts up, and I walk around with some dizziness pretty much the entire time. Usually, I am nauseous too.

Unfortunately, I have all of the other icky feelings this time, but only small bouts of nausea. The rest of the time, I have been starving and eating everything in the kitchen that I can get my hands on. That's really a good thing since my docs wanted me to gain about 10 lbs before transplant. I only have 3 more days left, but I'm well on my way!

I found you over at Rick's. Your header is fabulous and I love the meaning behind it! I left a comment over there too.

I will be praying for you and your transplant on Monday!

I too came over from Ricks page. You are amazing and such an inspiration. Despite your illness, you look fabulous in your pictures.

I hope your transplant goes well and will spend time snooping around your blog while you are away!
