Quick updates

Things are moving right along. The kids go to school very soon, can't wait! They are eating me out of house and Darin goes on the 25th to pick up his schedule and gets his picture taken. Yesterday I took him to get his haircut, he loves it, i love it, it's a win, win situation. I also went to the beauty supply shop to see what i needed to dye my daughter's hair. She wants to dye her hair fushia on the bottom half of her hair and black on top. I had been asking around when i see these kids with different color hair how they get the color so bright and time after time they told me they had to strip the color or bleach it to make it that deep of a color. So when i went to the store i asked the lady what i needed and she was very helpful. I can't afford to take her to a beauty shop for all of this, so i do alot of experimenting, wish me luck!

Amber goes to get her schedule on the 31st along with pictures. I sure do hope that her hair turns out the way it's supposed to!

I am doing great lately, the toes are healing, no more limp! No more rashes or swelling, thanking god as i type this.

Had the opportunity to spend time with my old friend Pam and her hubby last night. Really was alot of fun. She invited me to go to some wine festival next Saturday. Should be interesting, never been to one before.

Really enjoying the weather the last few days. Finally shut off the central air and opened some windows but according to the forecast it's going to get hot by Monday again. Frank was suppose to go fishing today. He planned on fishing all week, but it rained today. Oh well, maybe tomorrow he will go.

Well I gotta get ready for work :P

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

15 is a wonderful age!

Darin had a wonderful birthday. All he wanted from me was a couple of hats from spencers that he was eyeballing for some time. That's all!!! Done and done!!!
Mom posted a cute little interview video of Darin on his birthday on her site, go and check it out!
I have my own pictures to post...but my camera is being a "butt" and won't upload into my computer for some reason....I don't have the time or energy to figure that out at the moment!
Anyhoo, go check out the mini Forest fire at my mom's blog.

You'll never believe it!

After the ordeal on Wednesday, guess what i woke up to this Friday morning.

I woke up and saw my hands all broke out with another nasty rash, upon further investigation it was all over my neck, chest, back, arms and one small patch on my right foot! No tongue swelling or the throat closing, but it did feel tight to breath. So i called my doctor, explained to him what's been going on and he said to go straight to emergency, in his own words "let them fix what they broke" NICE! I love my doctor, but basically I knew the answer before i even talked to him...because i don't think he could do much at the office anyways....and what if on the drive there i went into anafalatic(sp?) shock? I just wanted to let him be aware of what's going on.

Well went back to E.R. and the same doctor was there and she could not believe that i was back. Took a good look at my rash, checked my breathing, and said to me add "cipro" to your list of allergies! This was the antibiotic i got instead of the "bactrim" that caused the other rash. Well now I can't have any antibiotics, the toes are healing, i can walk without pain, still a little gross to look at. But 2 doctors looked at it and said it should heal up just fine now with some triple antibiotic cream. Which is fine by me at the moment!! I'm too scared to try anything else!!!
The E.R. doctor called my doctor because after all the benedryl and steriods and other drugs they gave me the rash would not go away, she basically said that she had done everything that she can do, I will have to take steriods and benedryl for the next few days until it goes away. I still have some rash left, but alot of it has gone away. She basically told me that my doctor and her agree that if either my toe gets worse, or the rash breaks out again, call my doctor or come back to E.R.

The doctors and nurses could not believe that after all the drugs they pumped into me both times that i was not ready to pass out or asleep. In fact all I felt was very calm. A very nice feeling. But I came home today and cleaned and I went to work even took 4 more doses of benedryl and I am still up and typing away. Usually benedryl knocks me on my ass. Go figure!!

FUN, FUN, FUN!!! Been a rough week! This week can SUCK IT!! LOL!

Close Call

I went to work this morning. Ended up in our emergency room because my hands, face, neck, back swelled and broke out in an awful rash. Turns out I am allergic to the antibiotics they gave me for my infection on my foot. Turns out that i am allergic to anything with sulfa in it. I was really tongue swelled and i could feel the back of my throat start to shut. My tongue turned sheet white. They poured a ton of Benedryl in an I.V. , some steroids and some other stuff and within a half hour i was a new person. I still have one eye a little swelled but they also gave me a antihistamine with steroids in it.

So no more Bactrim for me!!!!

Here's a site if you want to learn more about it...I sure did!!!

My poor little piggies!

Still very sore, but swelling is down. Able to do my job with a massive limp and lots of pain. The infection is back down to the 2 toes...I don't wish this on anyone.

Other than that I can't think of anything else in my life.

For the past week i have been suffering with what started as athletes feet that i itched raw in between 2 toes and somehow got a blister for my efforts that caused me more pain than anyone should have to go thru. Saturday i went to work and had to leave because the pain was unbareable to walk, that's when my husband helped doctor it and discovered a blister in between my toes, so i popped it. It relieved alot of the pain and was able to get thru the day at work on Sunday. Went to a concert at the Warren civic center and when i got home i noticed that the infection was spreading almost to my leg. My foot was really swollen and stiff, scared me alot!! So off to emergency i went, i could barely take the pain any longer! After a dose of antibiotics and one miracle shot i went home and passed out, the shot made me sleep the best i have slept in days! When i woke up swelling is down and the infection is mostly on the one toe.
Not a great weekend!

Just some things

Taking the kids swimming at the city pool today. Haven't done that in awhile. Warren is doing alot for us tax payers. They put on free concerts at the square. Most are really good. Mom posted one of them on her blog, the sound is not very good, i think because we were sitting too close to the speakers. They also have a Farmer's market that goes on there every Sunday and movies every Friday. Nice.

Mom and I went to bingo last Friday and I got to yell BINGO for a huge jackpot!!! Thank God! It was enough to pay my house payment and put some money aside for school clothes. I was stressing over those two items, now i feel like a burden has been lifted, at least for this month!

Well that's all i got for now..
