I have about 5 minutes to do a down and dirty update. Right now I’m exhausted, frustrated and confused. I think I’m just done for today. 🙁
We met with the endocrinologist this afternoon. What we didn’t know was that this was a very special endocrinologist, that is very similar to a GYN.
I still don’t fully understand the difference right now because they both seem to be filling a very similar role.
It’s official… Lizze is in menopause. Although at her, extremely young age, it’s known as premature ovarian failure. We learned today that they are the same thing.
For those wondering, this is not a good thing.
Not a good thing at all.
Lizze had 14 vials of blood drawn for a ridiculous amount of tests.
She has to return for a bone scan, in order to establish her current bone density and a baseline to help address bone loss.
She also needs a mammogram every year now and has significantly increased her risks of heart disease and cancer.
There are more problems but that’s all I have for now.
We also learned that her body is so ridiculously low on vitamin D that she needs to take 100,000 UI per week for right now because it appears that her body isn’t absorbing vitamin D.
Lizze is not in a good place right now. Honestly, she’s in a really bad place right now.
This has been one of the shittiest weeks in some time.
Between everything going on with Gavin and Lizze, I’m so far over the edge, I can feel myself just shutting down. The problem is that I can’t allow that. This isn’t about me. It has to be about them.
I just don’t think I’m strong enough.
