Mastocytosis Tests Begin


Doctors appointments seem to come in clusters, or maybe it’s just that we usually have appointments every six months.  This week we’re all going to the dentist and allergy doctor.  Our son had a cavity that needed filling, which he handled very well.  He seems to have a family problem: he’s not easily numbed for dental work.  I know this is an issue for three of us, and is common with Ehlers Danlos patients.  Even though he hasn’t been diagnosed, he has a few signs of the syndrome.

Today was my appointment with the allergist.  Since they discovered my Mast Cell disorder, I’ve been taking the treatment for this.  Now, the doctor thinks I might have Mastocytosis.  He ordered blood tests for a tryptase lab.  He sent me over to the hospital lab and now I’ll be waiting up to two weeks for the results.  I’ve been reading about this disorder, and I do have most of the symptoms.  There are many different types or levels of Mastocytosis.

Next appointment is the pain management doctor.  I’ll be glad to report that I’m off of Topamax.  My pain levels are pretty decent right now, so I’m thankful.  Every little or big thing that is good brings great joy.  When you’re all too used to flares of pain, these lower levels of pain are unbelievably appreciated.  It’s great to be able to thank God in my prayers for less pain, instead of the usual begging for relief.  I never know what a day will bring, but must trust God.

Homeschool Memos Linky Party #5

to the
Homeschool Memos
Linky Party
Last week we had an awesome group of bloggers!  I enjoyed reading all the posts and hope that you did, too.  This is such a wonderful time of year for homeschooling.  The weather is so nice!  It’s a perfect time of year for field trips and taking nature walks.  Maybe your family has been busy doing nature notebooks.  This time of year is also nice, because we haven’t reached the holiday seasons.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are such busy times of year.  That’s why October and early November were my favorites.


Please share your favorite Homeschool posts.  You may share as many as you like, as long as they’re family-friendly and homeschool-related.  This includes: reviews, recipes, DIY, giveaways, writings, and more.  Each post will be shared on the Homeschool Memos Pinterest Board.

Homeschool Memos Linky Party #4

You can feel free to add any post that relates to Homeschooling: written posts, DIY projects, reviews, Giveaways, photos, etc.  You may add as many as you’d like!  I look forward to reading them and sharing them on Pinterest Homeschool Memos board.
