@mggalaviz and I rescued a baby robin today. It is cozy and happy in our backyard (safe from predators) and its mom has been coming by to feed it. One thing about being home all day is I have been able to watch the wildlife in my backyard - it brings me a lot of comfort ♡

I am so blessed to have the friends I have. I wanted to go watch wrestling with @jimgatfield and @mistygatfield but I have been feeling too sick to go. So they set up a spot for me to lay down with them and watch the show (complete with constant pup kisses from ponyboy). I cannot express how much it meant to me that they went out of their way to make me comfortable so I could be included in the fun. It made me feel like a normal person for a day and that is a beautiful gift. Thank ...

Welp, went in to the dentist today to clean an infected tooth and found out I need a root canal that I cannot get for 2 weeks because of insurance. Trying to stay positive but starting to feel like I cannot catch a break.😑😪 But on the bright side I cannot eat solid foods anyway so should be able to tolerate the discomfort until I am able to get in. 🤣😂 Wouldn't be able to handle all of this without my awesome support system.

@mggalaviz made my baby food breakfast and I am half awake. Still at 108 - still waiting for test results. Have a heart monitor now to make sure my weight loss and potassium/b12 issues didn't do any harm. I am so blessed to be surrounded by so much love.

Update: Still alive and kicking. I have an amazing support system ♡♡♡ Still on a pureed/liquid diet...still tired and in pain. Slowly gaining weight. I am at 108! I have more tests...looking for answers. If I am not doing better in a few weeks my doctor will send me to the Mayo Clinic on the east coast. Haven't needed to be tube fed yet, so that is good. I really have no more answers right now. Thank you for the love. I will update again when I have more news.

Was back in the hospital yesterday... My body isn't absorbing potassium. Grandma made me a glove balloon to cheer me up. #thissucks#stillsick

Because I've been so down and stressed about my health @mggalaviz got me a fish tank. Today I adopted these two cuties for my new tank: Amelia Pond and Rory Williams. They stick together pretty close which is super cute. And they do soothe me and make me smile. I am loved. Still waiting on blood test results. . . . . . . . . . . . #goldfish#cutie

Update: My results came back. What I know so far: my stomach doesn't drain the way it should. It isn't curable... I'm still on a liquid diet. What I still don't know: - what caused it - what treatment options I have I have another appointment on the 26th to hopefully address those two things. There is a strong possibility that the majority of my diet will be liquid for the rest of my life. Am I sad? YES. I have a DEEP PASSION for eating. I've cried a lot. Is this over? NO. There ...

Sad news: my hair got so tangled and dirty (I haven't been strong enough to brush it) that it got cut today... Good news: I am able to donate about 10 inches...so, it won't get thrown away. It was hard but necessary because I couldn't take care of my hair. Can't wait to have it grow out again when i'm healthy. Thanks for the love and support ♡ #haircut#shorthair

After 5 days of only a few hundred calories, and 1 day of hitting 1100 - Today I finally could eat 1530 calories!!!!!!!!! Shooting for 1600 tomorrow... Hoping to weigh 105 soon. Slow steady climb, but stoked that today my body isn't starving. Baby food and liquids are getting old - but I'll get back to solids soon!! Also! I was able to walk around the house on my own today! Couldn't recover without the help of @mggalaviz ♡♡♡♡ #healing#fighting

I'm back home safe and @mggalaviz is taking good care of me. Had multiple biopsies taken and should know what's going on in a week. I lost 11 more pounds. I'm currently at 102 pounds (at 5'7) ...so, that's not good. Still have to be on a liquid diet until we get the results back. This week is 100% about gaining my weight back. Thank you all for your encouragement, support, and kindness... it really gives me strength ♡

I've been very I'll...in and out of the emergency room the past 5 days. After a CT scan the doctors found that part of my intestines are paralyzed. We don't know why yet. I have a test on Monday that will hopefully tell us something. For now I'm on a liquid diet which has been very hard on my body. I'm pretty malnourished and under weight...but hanging on. I am endlessly grateful for @mggalaviz for walking me through my panic attacks, forcing me to drink fluids and sitting with me at the hospital. My grandma brought me ...
