shan's first complaint

my stomach may be huge, but to get rid of the fluid (which in addition to being unsightly is very dangerous: it could get infected and put me back in the hospital) i have to eat less than 2,000 mg of salt per day.

there is more sodium in one teaspoon of salt than that.

the chef is being shut down for a while :(

this month:

I beat hepatic encephalopathy among other things.

I've discovered that my sister is not only an incredible nurse but a thoughtful, fun roommate.

I fell in love with bathtubs and beds all over again after the hospital stay.

i am still here.
