Alex has been back on TSO for 2 weeks. He has maintained the academic gains yet seems very tired and therefore, not as alert and with-it as he had been. Fatigue is actually a really common side effect so I suspect that this is the cause. I’m not particularly worried as his BMs are good, his appetite is fine, he’s certainly not regressing. He has been waking early often, which certainly isn’t helping. To sum up, I’d say he’s pretty stable. Then again, I didn’t really expect him to literally get better every day – so I’m comfortable for the moment.
Liam has been generally pretty good. We did have a minor flare-up of foot eczema. He has been under some major emotional strain lately so it’s very hard to know what’s what. It’s nothing like it was in the past so again, I’m not particularly upset.
My father, who now has 40 worms, is great. He is doing only 2 puffs of his steroidal inhaler 3 times a week now (3 puffs the other 4 days). In another week, if he’s still good, he’ll go down to 2 puffs per day.
Me – I’m ok. If anything, I’d say slightly better than I was. The monster flare-up of IBS I’ve had for months has certainly abated slightly. Whether or not it’s the worms or the Primal Defense I’m loading myself with (or the glutamine), I’m not sure. My muscles also don’t hurt as much. I’m not waking at 4 in the morning because of body pain. I can’t say I’m not stiff at all, or that I feel good when I wake up, but certainly the pain is a little less. What is excellent is that I am completely off my smidege Xanax to sleep. Using a combination of L-theanine and kava kava seems to have done the trick, combinded with whatever is making me ache slightly less…
So, overall, I’d say we’re all doing well. But I also have no major gains to report at the moment.
