I’m a hot mess!! Recently I’ve been diagnosed as severely deficient in Vitamin D and we are now waiting on the lab results to find out where my Vitamin B12 levels are. Since I had to have my Ileum removed in June of 2010 due to a tumor on the Ileum, my body no longer can absorb the Vitamin B12. I will have to have Vitamin B12 shots for the rest of my life.
So now I am taking 50,000 units of Vitamin D once a week for 12 weeks, then I drop to 2,000 units a day for the rest of my life. At the end of August my doctor will run more lab work again to see where my Vitamin D levels are, just to make sure my body is absorbing what I am taking in.
All this plus waiting for my 3 mole biopsies to come back has me more than frustrated. I’m praying that the Halo mole that was removed is not a malignant Melanoma.
A Halo Mole (Halo Nevus) is visible as a white halo effect around a brown spot or mole — can also be associated with melanoma. In these cases, the brown spot seems to be disappearing, but actually the body is attacking the mole or a more lethal process is actually under way — the melanoma is digging deeper leaving less of it on the surface.
I am a woman who is always so full of life and vigor but with all my health issues I’m struggling lately. Just when I think I can catch my breath…BAM, I’m dealing with another health issue.
I can’t even go into all my heartbreaks this year or I will break down sobbing. This has been a very harsh year thus far for me. I can only pray that good will come my way to heal my body and my heart.
