91 weeks off topcial steroids and I am sorry to say the itchy bastard is still attacking!

Well, not much new to report, I feel like a broken record that we are all getting sick of listening to. Kline is in another bad flare.  Up all night, till 4 or 7 am and sleeping till 2pm most days. Then in the bath till bed most days.  His feet are pretty bad and super itchy. He screams bloody murder when he gets in the bath because of the boo boo's on his feet and it breaks my heart, all I can do is hold his hand!

I have no idea if he will ever not be itchy.  It's is hard to keep my hopes up when it has been so long. I hope and wish with all my soul that his life gets better than this, that he is not itchy like this forever. Maybe Santa will answer our wishes this year? 

I, on the other hand have been obsessed with my diet and Crossfit!  I love Crossfit and thanks to my local Crossfit Jibboom, in Truckee Ca...I now have a new body, I am the strongest I have ever been, i am super healthy, and I AM one hot mama!

I will share my before and after pictures with you.....I have not shared my before picture much because I
not sure you can tell but his capillaries in his face a freaking out here and all red.  he is super itchy and flaring in the picture.

was embarrassed but I shouldn't be....our life has been rough and I turned to food and wine...Now I am turning to working out and eating healthy and socializing at the gym!

I had gained 20 lbs, during my miscarried pregnancy and I can say that is all gone and more!

I am going to Kick Ass on the slopes this year, so watch out!!!

Kick ass Mom's, love Loren xooxo


  1. Go Loren! You look fantastic!
    I am sorry that Kline is still suffering. This just has to be nearing the end!

  2. oh wowwwwww loren! this is only 2 weeks?! i can't imagine how toned you'll be in time to come!

    regarding kline's flare up, i wonder if it's the dry weather? poor boy. :(


  3. 10 weeks, and maybe it's the cold weather and dry?? Who knows?mxoxox

  4. I know you say your son is suffering from topical steroid addiction but to me it just looks like severe eczema. It sounds like Kline is really suffering and if it was me I would have to try something different. My son has was at the point where he was just existing a few years back until we were referred to our current specialist. He now laughs and is able to run around and play with his friends. Maybe there is a specialist out there that can help your son have a good quality of life.
