Yeah and damn

Okay, STILL no socks that rock for me but Meg got hers so I'm still hopeful mine will show up Monday or Tuesday. I also haven't heard from the College of Education about whether my application has been accepted or not...well, if I have been accepted or not. That was the damn part. Now the Yeah!

I got my soap order from Woodsprite Soaps and OMG the smells! I got the new Amber Earth gift set which is my favorite by far! The Amber smells like cinnaminy vanilla. It's a super warm scent and is just so feminine. I also ordered a bar of Jacki's new Sacred line in Zen along with the masage oil that matches. Tasty, tasty, tasty and I also got a bar of the Bliss from the same line. The Bliss smells just like Constant Comment tea from Bigelow teas and is unbelievable! It's a spicey orange smell. So at least Jacki is helping me feel better about not getting my STR kit.

Oh! And because I know you all are sweethearts and are worried about my health I did get a letter from my doctor. I do not understand half of what is on this list of notes but I can figure out that I DO NOT have mono (yeah) and I DO have strep and have suffered all week with it but I can now go fill my prescription. My blood count was normal, my liver was normal, my salts were normal and my thyroid was normal. Ok, what in the hell is IgA? and ESR? and IgG? and CRP? and IgM? LOL the IgG was high and the ESR was 30 but the rest was normal. Ok nurses, enlighten me.

My X-ray of my right hand did show that I have arthritis, but I'll get a report from the arthritis doctor about that and his findings. Oh, and no evidence that there is a immune deficiency thank every higher power that was ever conceived. I could have dealt with it but I prefer not to ya know? ROFL

I'll be on Amoxil for a couple of weeks and feeling fine in a couple of days. Send quick to arrive vibes to my STR box K? I may jump out of my skin yet, except it's going to smell too damn good to leave heee heee heee. Peace knittsters!

Okay Mz Kat
I hope this helps.

-CRP is one of the test to determine your Cardiac Risk Factors. C Reactive Protein (CRP): This is a marker for inflammation. Traditionally it has been used to assess inflammation in response to infection. However we use a highly sensitive C Reactive Protein which is useful in predicting vascular disease, heart attack or stroke.. The best treatment for a high C reactive protein level has not yet been defined, however statin drugs, niacin, weight loss, quitting smoking, and exercise all appear to improve C- Reactive Protein.
-Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate or ESR (sed-rate). Females tend to have higher ESR, and menstruation and pregnancy can cause temporary elevations. To detect and monitor the activity of inflammation as an aid in the diagnosis and activity of the underlying cause. Help diagnose conditions associated with acute and chronic inflammation, including infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases.
-IgG is the most abundant class of antibodies found in blood serum and lymph. IgG antibodies work to fight against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and foreign particles.
-IgM is the class of antibodies found in circulating body fluids. IgM antibodies are the first antibodies to appear in response to an initial exposure to an antigen.

-IgA is a type of antibody whose main function is to fight ingested antigens. It is found in body secretions such as saliva, sweat, or tears. IgA prevents the attachment of viruses and bacteria to skin and intestinal lining surfaces.

-Antibody: A protein produced by a B cell in response to a specific foreign substance. The antibody can bond with the antigen enabling an immune response. Antibodies are the “soldiers” which protect us against bacteria and viruses that are free in the body (not inside cells) and parasitic infections.
-because I am a dork I didn't tell you what those where. IgA is Immunoglobulin A along with IgG and IgM. Your bodies natural antibodies.

THANK YOU TEYLA!!!!! I thought you'd be the one to come to my rescue and I'm glad I was right for once! I'm really glad to see my CRP was normal since I'm over weight and all. Anyway, thank you for enlightening me!
