I got my levels back yesterday. It came back at 17. I tried to tell my mom that I hadn’t been drinking it for a week before I drew that blood. I think she understood but still wasn’t happy about it. Then Ann, (my dietition) called me to talk about it. She said it was a big improovment because last time they couldn’t even read it because it was so high ( i feel no different now then when it was high) But I was told that I am suppose to take 4 coolers a day instead of 2. I am suppose to send in a blood sample before Cancun. I kind of like the challenge, only because I like the coolers. I am starting to get a craving for them which to me is HUGE! I never understood how my sister would crave her milk in the middle of the night. But not I kinda get it.
