Daring to hope.....?

Well, the question now is......."Dare I hope....?"
Just 3 months ago I weighed in at around 95 kilos (190 lbs) and through illness, I rapidly lost weight so that I went down to 75 kilos (150 lbs) in a very short time. (Not myself!)
The Doctors, specialists or generalists had no ideas - no solutions, simply suggesting more food, more often. This was the first time Doctors had ever told me to eat eggs, if I liked them, as often as I could - or wanted to! They are a high quality but easily "arrangable" only problem is that if I'm not wrong, it's only a short while ago I was being told they are not a good thing for us cardiacs'......!
Well it seemed to me that the more logical solution would be to find the reason for my extreme weight loss - and "remedy" it - but how....?
Then.......a few days ago, I was told finally that there had been a specialist who had made the suggestion that a certain medicament should be taken to alleviate my illness, just that nobody had thought to tell me or to prescribe the medicament!
It's around 10 or 11 days that I started to take this treatment,  and from the lowest point of 75 kilos, I've now managed to get it up to 76.8 kilos - a gain of 1 and a half  kilos (around 3 lbs more)......Dare I hope that there may be a solution....? Well - I certainly hope so, because I have an awful lot of things to do!
One thing which disturbs me still is the fact that I continue to have daily diarrhea, during which I regularly (daily) lose at least around half a pound in weight!
Of course.......maybe one of problems is going to be how to stop the weight being put back on too much! Well - I'd just love to have that problem right now.....!

Dare I hope.....?
