Update on Amber.

Had amber in e.r. again last night...hoping for some miracle of finding out what is wrong with her...they did an ultrasound of her gallbladder, spline, liver, kidneys and found nothing! and we got a maybe it's gastritis. Just maybe I am going to go insane!! This has been horrible for Amber the last 2 weeks...and the worst thing is she has one more week before we can see a gastro doctor. Poor kid...I cry for her, I am losing sleep because I am worried and if I do get some sleep I have nightmares!
I hope she gets some relief soon!

On another note...I am almost finished with her afghan :)

Wednesday weigh-iin

Not a good week only 1 pound! But that equals 30 pounds gone!!! I know why only 1 pound because of girlie week, but i will take week will be a whole other story.

Anyhoo check out what my mother made for me!!!! Who knew that when my mom volunteered to teach me to crochet that she would jump back into it with a vengeance. She is kicking out crochet projects left and right, If you want to see what she's made go and visit her site. I saw this shawl on a free pattern at JoAnn's and really like it, mom suprised me with it just the other day..

Meanwhile I am still working on my daughters afghan...Not my fault, I had to wait a couple days for some more yarn. I did manage to make another hat for a neighbor's grandson and I totally forgot to take a picture of it. I will get one. I also made a hat for my Aunt that turned out wonderful in a puff stitch pattern...I can't believe that i didn't get a pic of that either...I was kinda proud of that hat. Yeh, I know I suck!! Anyways I have one more skein of the color amber picked out and then border it with some dark blue and her afghan will be finished!!! I am kinda proud of this project, can't wait to show you all when I am done!
Now go over to my mom's site and check out the toys and stuff she has made!!

I got a call while at work, it was Amber's school. The lady on the phone said "Amber is really sick, she would like to go home". When Amber got home she called me to say that she got really dizzy and was kinda double visioned. I thought right away dehydration. Called my doctor and he told me to send her to a e.r. with a pediatrics in it. I left work, took her to the e.r. and now they think she has gerd and gave her some zantak and was told that if she is still throwing up to set up an appointment to see a gastro doctor. The not knowing is killing me. How did she all of a sudden get so sick? I hope that she will be ok soon.

FINALLY after 2 weeks of nothing changed....I lost 3 pounds! 29 pounds gone!! go me!!

I took the bike for a descent bike much as I could stand yesterday and then went a little bit further. Today I did not go as far because the legs are hurting something awful and my butt feels like i have had But I did about half of what i did yesterday so my body will get used to it.

Amber is in bad shape....6 straight days of vomiting everything that enters her mouth. I will give it until Friday and call her doctor and see what he wants me to do. You would never know that she was sick until she vomits!! Doctors are saying it's a stomach flu...but no fever, no nothing but vomiting! She did have diarrhea for a bit, but that has now stopped. I was checking out stomach flu on the internet and says that it could last 1-10 days...I have never in my life been sick with the flu for that long...Poor girl....I hope Frank and I don't get it!!! I will probably get it when i have my vacation...that would suck!!!

anyhoo, have a great week and if you got a chance send my daughter some healing prayers. I'm worried!

Amber's close call.

Amber had pain on her right lower side of her belly, she was complaining about it for about 5 days. Everyone was thinking she may have appendicitis. I took her to an urgent care facility thinking i will save some money. They tested her for bladder infection or uti's but came up negative. The doctor told me to take her to emergency because it could be her appendix. Went to emergency and about 6 hours later after all the tests were done, we found out everything is fine...She has some small cysts on her ovaries and maybe one popped and causing her some pain...She should be fine in a few more days.. We got home a little after midnight...I had worked 6:30 till 3 and was back at my work from 6pm untill midnight...I was dead by the time i got home.

I finished this last week

Well this was my very first attempt at a baby blanket... I like it alot..only i will know where my mistakes are. It is very soft to the touch, I can't wait to give this to her at her baby shower. I hope she likes it.... What do you all think?
I started on my daughter's afghan last night...We went shopping on Sunday for the yarn, she picked a yarn mix with blues and greens...I chose to make a huge granny square, she says she is liking the pattern so far and I am too! I'll post some pics as soon as it gets a bit bigger.
