Riding, Donuts....and Waiting.

Ben completed a 56-mile bike ride in a charity event. He's only been biking a couple months now and his longest ride prior to this event was 20ish miles so this was a big deal for him. He was in pain when he finished, but he did a great job!

Karen, Gabe, and I hung out at rest stop number 4 and helped where we could. The ride was over in Columbia, IL, and was such a pretty route. As we were making our way from the drop-off to the rest stop, I happened to notice a neat, old brick building and was thrilled to see a Cakeway to the West cake smack in front of it! We promised to stop there on our way back and we did just that! I'm not sure we would have snagged that particular cake otherwise!

The next day was Ben's birthday and we celebrated by grabbing a box full of donuts from Strange Donuts.


I really, really wanted to like these donuts, but they were nothing exciting.  I think it's a great idea, but none of the flavors there were particularly strange and they were all cake donuts and sort of dry. :( For the calories, I would have rather had a Krispy Kreme. Poo. I like to support small business whenever possible. :(

As for the "waiting" portion of the title...I finally got in to see Dr. Angie. She was great, as always. The bio-meridian machine showed a lot of parasites and bacteria present. She recommended some Bio-film. She said that no matter what Kessinger gives me, the Bio-film will help break down the protective layer that most parasites have to guard themselves, making it easier to get rid of them.  Unfortunately, she didn't have a printer so she said she'd mail the results.

When Kessinger's office called to confirm my appt, a few days later, I still hadn't received the results from Angie and it turned out they didn't have the 23andme analyzing software up and running again, anyway. Luckily, they had an opening for this coming Monday and the results from Angie arrived later that day. Good grief.

I'm excited to think that we'll now have all the pieces we need to get a good treatment plan together, but nervous that after all of this, we're still missing something and I'm going to be disappointed yet again. I guess I'll know in 4 days!
