Easter and B12

I know this is almost a week late, but here are a few pictures from Easter. I had my family, Ryan's family, and the Coulter's over for dinner. We had a nice time all together, but we missed Ryan. Pam will kill me for putting this picture of her on here, but it cracks me up!

I have been having very low energy and feeling very fatigued, as well as having some other weird symptoms (like tingling in my hands and feet, etc.) My doctor checked my B12 levels and they are low. They shouldn't be however because I have been taking B vitamins daily and recently had a B12 shot. My doctor is concerned that my body is not absorbing it for some reason and that I might have an auto immune disorder. She is treating me with a six week course of B12 shots, once a week. After that time she will test my blood again and see if my body is absorbing it or not. Depending on that we will see if I need further testing or not. This would explain a few other symptoms I have been having, so we will see.

We're praying for you Amy! Hopefully your body is absorbing the shots!
