I'm back

I am sorry I have been gone so long.

I have been seeing my neuro on the mainland for med changes.

HE is slowly taking me off the crummy Vimpat. I was at 600 mgs and now down to 100 at night. HE has added Topamax 200 mgs.

Since he has added that the weight loss effect is doing its job. When I firststarted taking it Feb 12th I weighed 177 and now i weigh 160. I should be down to aobut 130, so I have a ways togo yet.

Also have been traveling to Northern O'ahu, and it is a bit cooler up there. Some of the islands have ddifferent temps. O'ahu right now has in the 80s while Maui is in the 70s.

I am taking classes at UH and doing well.

All my classes fro LSU transfered to UH and I just had 2 to take to complete the LPN program and now I ahve a whole bunch to complete that I need to take plus the stuff from UH that I need to get my RN.

THe RN program is hard. I am taking 2 extra years becuase I am taking neuro science classes as well so I can w rite the board so I can work as an RN in an EMU someday, when my szs are back under control, hopefully. But that may just be a wish for now.

I spent some time in PHX so Gretchen could see my mom for a week.

I went home early and then sent for her.

She got on the dean's list at her school adn got ALL A's the final semester before summer break.

I live on O'ahu in West Honolulu-GO UH Warriors!
