SEABlogger health update

A medical exam has revealed my liver is "struggling." Additional blood work has ruled out Hepatitis A, B, or C. The doctor's office drew more blood to check for diseases were the body attacks its own liver. I am also going for an ultrasound of my liver. 

In the meantime, the doctor says "No alcohol or meds of any kind." It will be particularly hard during the holidays when wine is abundant. I will have to forego the Pepto-Bismol after the Christmas meal as well. Basically, I can't have anything the liver would have to filter.

I am sticking with the fatty liver scenario. It sounds much better than a disease in which the body attacks the liver! I need to lose a few pounds (okay, a lot) anyway.

Will keep you updated.
