Day trip to Huntsville

It's almost 11 pm. I still have to go have a shower, so this will be short. Anna and I just got home from a trip to Huntsville (2.5 hours away) for an appointment with Dr. P., the naturopath. Anna had a consultation re. her health and our fertility, then I had a short follow-up. I also got the IV vitamins (75 g of vitamin C, among others). He figures this will kick my cold out pretty quickly. As for the cold, it's one of the weirdest I've ever had. I had a scratchy throat on the 1st, a fever of 37.8 and a wicked headache on the 2nd, then yesterday I felt almost normal and today I feel tired and a bit stuffy, but okay. We're supposed to go directly to the ER if my temp. hits 38 C, so we almost made a midnight trip to emerg. The weird thing is that my colds usually last about 3 weeks (where for normal people they last 3 days). Apparently my immune system is working fine! As for his words on my diet, he basically said avoid gluten (wheat, rye, barley, spelt, kamut and anything else with gluten, which is a lot of things--goodbye beer!), dairy, and garlic. Also on the list are peanuts, citrus fruit, kidney and lima beans.

Tomorrow we're going skiing at the Temiskaming Nordic Ski Club, then out for dinner with about 12 folks to celebrate Anna's 36th birthday (on the 3rd). Seems like we'll break out the swimtrunks on Sunday, it's supposed to go up to 8-10 degrees! Melt all the snow and we'll drive up the lake for a sauna at Camp Wanapitei! (That's where Anna and I met, for anyone that forgot!)

Anna says to say hi to all those out there in blogland.
