More House Pictures.
This giardia is so painful at times. I just want to be all better. Now!
I really do not feel well. I feel like my body is made of dust and I could just blow away and scatter with a gentle breeze. Weird feeling. My body feels so heavy and tired, but at the same time light and floaty. I don’t know how to explain it. I’m not sure if it’s a side effect of taking a toxic anti-parasite medication or what, but I don’t like it. I also have extreme nausea at random moments. Yuck.
I took the last dose of Alinia (Nitazoxanide) yesterday afternoon. I know it’s still in my system 24 hours later though. It turns my urine a frightening color of neon yellow/green. Something way beyond anything you have ever seen from any other medication or vitamin. It looks like it should glow in the dark, as if I am peeing out radioactive toxic waste or something.
Awesome, but disturbing, and gross too.
I still have another round of Alinia to take after this. I’m waiting a few days for the life cycle of any remaining cysts to begin so I can zap them as soon as they start hatching out.
I’m also taking two tablets of allicin garlic every day in hopes it will fill my intestines with garlic-y goodness and make them inhospitable to any lurking re-hatching cysts over time.
The infectious disease doctor’s office never called me to schedule an appointment last week, which is frustrating. I don’t know the name of the office since my doctor’s secretary did the referral and faxed it. I guess I need to call my doctor’s office and get the info to call the infectious disease doctor’s office myself on Monday.
I’m going to request the infectious disease doctor do bloodwork to check for IgA deficiency. I really do not want to have that, but I think it’s likely. Otherwise my body would have kicked the remaining giardia on its own with my immune system. Recurring giardiasis is a bad sign for my immune system’s strength.
In more pleasant and non-parasitical news the home inspection for our new house went great today! There were only a couple of small things wrong with it–missing shingles and something about the gas line needing grounding plumbed into it due to update code from the past few years. Absolutely no major problems, which is a HUGE relief. We’ll get our realtor to ask that those little things be repaired before closing, and I think the current owners should agree. I don’t see why they wouldn’t. If not they’re only a few hundred dollars worth of repairs, so it’s nothing life altering.
Next up is the appraisal. We wrote into our contract that if the house appraises for lower than what we’re offering we will renegotiate. I don’t think that’s unusual or illogical, so I’m not too worried. I am very curious what it will appraise for though. I’d rather it just appraise for what we’re offering or above so we can just move on and keep it simple.
While Tyler was at the house for the home inspection he took some more pictures of the inside.
Walking in the front door. That door straight ahead is a closet I think.
(This will be the homeschool room, and it will be white with wood floors I hope!)
And looking to the right you find the stairs. Which are perfectly baby gate-able, unlike our current Victorian stairs. Yes! He will not be able to run off and destroy while I have my back turned!
Front door view, again.
Here is the view from the other end of the hallway, looking at the front door.
There’s a tiny bathroom right there, the basement, and maybe the garage door…
The kitchen, a much better picture this time!
One of the closets in the upstairs bedrooms…they are all huge closets!
I can’t wait to brighten up the space with white paint and laminate wood flooring, at least downstairs. I figure we can do the bedrooms as we have time and money later on.
Now, with that encouragement on my mind I need to peel myself up and go downstairs and pack some things. My entire entryway is filled with a billion empty boxes!
