New Release

WOOT! The day just escaped me, but today my Quickie MALE ORDER was released from Ellora's Cave.

I've been pretty quiet, I had a bit of health scare, but I'm OK as I can be. I've been diagnosed with Crohn's. I had been so ill and in pain for a month. They searched for everything from pregnancy (ACK!!!) to cancer(double ACK).

I am feeling much better since I started eating low residue, which means basically keeping away from fiber, soda, fats. I have to seed and peel all of my fruits and veggies. I haven't had broccoli in forever. Regardless, it was totally worth it and I have been losing baby weight ... not the rapid weight from starving. Crohn's doesn't allow your body to absorb anything. Your bowels are damaged and you become malnourished. Some with Crohn's end up with countless surgery as strictures form. Luckily I wasn't that bad and I quickly changed, because I want to avoid surgery and pain.

And the plus side, my kids are really enjoying the new meals. They absolutely gobbled up Chicken & Eggplant Parmesan.

Anyways, that's where I'm at. I hope you all enjoy Male Order.

Yikes! I'm glad they caught it soon! My Auntie has Crohns, and has had the surgeries. Not a fun time.
Congrats on the release!
(YES I still have to read the one you sent me...I am done school April 17 and will have a life again after that!)
