I'm about to take my 3rd kuvan blood test. The issues I mentioned in the beginning are gone. I had been experiencing discomfort and bloating that made me not want to eat but my dietitian pointed out that the bucket of coffee I drink every morning was likely the cause. I changed up my schedule to have coffee and breakfast at home, then formula and kuvan when I get to my office. Much better! I haven't kept up this blog like I said I would but I guess thats proof positive that I'm too busy to blog? I've always said I'd rather do stuff than blog about not doing stuff XD I'm giddy now thanks to a tiny breakfast and too much coffee but I have another hour until I can draw blood and then eat again so I'm trying to distract myself with internet. :P For your entertainment I'll leave a link to the google docs spreadsheet I use to track my diet records. My dietitian loves it because she can look it up any time she wants and we can chat through it if we're both looking at the same time. I love it because it is the closest thing to a web based phe documentation device I have ever used. Here ya go: https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AsgfLe4D7PuSdHhFSjQtUUw5U2ZoWWk4bnkzYnQxN1E&hl=en&output=html Mind the disclaimer on the cheat sheet tab please. 49 minutes to stabby time and then food. Toodles!

    Forgot to mention my appetite is still less than it was, but I think that may be because I’m thinking more/more clearly and can better differentiate between the desire to eat because I’m bored, and actual hunger.

    I like your speardsheet AntInTexas!! The research for the Phe levels must have been real work. I only track protein at this time and log it on FitDay.com. I like your good attitude about just about everything! Good work.
