For those of use who have ever done a 5k, triathlon, mud run, obstacle course or any other sort of race you know how exciting race day can be. Except maybe when you’re supposed to run 60 some miles through steep hills and climbs and it’s 40 degrees and raining. That’s what Paul is up against this morning as he takes on the Zion Ultramarathon in Utah today. For anyone wanting to track his progress today, you can go here to set up notifications. Savannah and I were supposed to be there to cheer him on but because of our sickness we had to stay home. I’m so sad that we cannot be there with him today but we are thinking about him and saying lots of prayers that he stays safe during the race.
In other news, I received a message from Savannah’s pediatrician yesterday about her Calprotectin levels. They came back normal! I was so thankful for this news. The last time I had her levels checked ( I think in January) they were 216 and this time her level was 119! (high range normal is 165) Amazing! I am so relieved that this crazy diet is helping her. Now, again, if I could just pinpoint exactly what is giving her an issue. The first time I had her stool tested I was only dairy-free, soy-free so we know that it is not JUST those things. In any event, once I start breastfeeding again after I’m done with this course of steroids I think I will try to add one thing each week and see how she does.
I did go on a mini binge the other day – ate pretty much all the allergens and then of course was not feeling well that night. Got back on the diet yesterday so hopefully my system will clear it all by next week. I made allergy-friendly chicken piccata last night (one of my fav dishes) so I will have to post that recipe soon.
