El, it sounds like things may finally be progressing in the right direction for you. What exactly is IgA deficient mean?
I just spend the last 2 1/2 hours at Chuck E Cheese....isn't that nice? My kids have been dying to go, so I figured we'd celebrate the 3 day weekend (today was a 1/2 day of school for my 1st grader) by going. My throat is not wincingly painful now...it's just hurts enough to still bother my ear and ensure I have a drink most of the day. I'm getting ready for my 2nd dose of antibiotics soon.....to have this much improvement in one day is amazing!
Well, my weekend is filled with cleaning the house. I've barely gotten back on my RA drugs, so the lack of them has already started kicking in ......hopefully I can do well enough to get the house in order and all the sickies aired out before it starts going in to quarantine status.
Have a great weekend everyone.
I'm really really REALLY depressed today. I guess if I do my best to get through it all, it will pass eventually.......but most of today I have just wanted to cry....maybe tonight when the man is at work and the kids are in bed I can cry it out of my system. I think it is just stuff that has been building up these last few weeks making me sad and possibly the antibiotics are putting me over the edge topped with a little female timing thing (sorry guys!)......<sigh>
My son would love a Jackson-5! I would like a kitty as well. Sadly, my dog would probably eat the kitty (she hates cats for some reason) and my husband (who is severely allergic and does not like them either) would probably serve it to her! (I'm not sure exactly which emoticon is appropriate here!)
Man, misery apparently loves company - Erin, though I'm not happy you feel the same way (isolated and alone says it all) - it did give me some comfort like you were holding my hand across the states with comoplete understanding......so, here's a squeeze back (I won't squeeze too hard!) <<<SQUEEEEZZEE>>>> Now I want to cry again.
oh boy, just got a call from mother-in-law....more to add to my sadness (maybe my telepathic abilities already knew this and that's why the depression hit me so hard today)...apparently my husband's uncle was found passed out this morning in his chair not breathing. He had a massive heart attack. His wife (my mother-in-law's sister) found him and called 911 who got him breathing on life support. It's not looking good and I guess the wife has to make a decision in the morning if he's not breathing on his own by then. They just lost their mother last October.......
I'm sorry for such a depressing post. I hope everyone has a decent weekend. I got no cleaning done today - though I did make it to the grocery store. <sigh> ****
Hugs, CaMamma. I too have had a lump the size of an orange in my throat. Last night the dam broke. Hubby was gone to a roping and I had the house to myself. And as someone? mentioned, it feels as though I'm being left behind as everyone else continues on with life. I'm no longer able to ride and I sure can't spend the day watching ropers chase a cow. I have decided that as I'm not getting any younger I need to go back to the basics...doing the things that bring me pleasure. Hubby is set for the rest of his life, new pickup, new trailer, 3 horses, new tractor, etc. Sitting on my brother's boat dock with a fishing pole is a dream to me. 2 of my brothers have side by side lake "cabins" that are nicer than what I live in. So I think one of those new T@B camper trailers is just the ticket for me. Plug in to one of the cabins and have myself a ball. I'll have to order one as they are in demand right now. They are re-inventions of the old teardrop campers. Can you see me going down the highway in my VW Bug, pulling a teardrop? I can.
In dire need of R&R here. Think hubby has another roping today or tomorrow. Been having "tummy attacks". I guess it's part of the autoimmune gift we all have. Planning to take it easy today and get rested up. Grandson is staying the night tonight as both parents work tomorrow. He's 9 and maintenance-free.
Bear, I too saw the juice pitch. I use the stuff but would not dream of promoting it here.
Have a great (what's left of the) weekend. Boo
Ok, Guys....Happy Memorial Day. Last day of long weekend. Spent most of yesterday looking at options for new back yard fence with the hubby. Could have gotten thrown out of a couple of places. Hubby thinks corral panels make a good back yard and I'm tired of his hillbilly ideas. Yes, I was cranky and hurting but if I don't go along I'll end up with something stupid for a back yard. He frustrates me. Picked out the wooden picket fence and said it's that or nothing. Then had to come home and step everything off and put in markers. Saga continues..."We could shortcut here, I could use corral panels here, tie this into pasture fence, might want to park the trailer back here.....Ugh! Finally told him "never mind, I'll get a little house in town and you can come visit me".
As you can tell, I'm not very good at these couples decisions. Yup, I'm going to need to get back on the antidepressants soon as I can really see a difference in my sleeping and pain management, not to mention being allowed to go to public places (lol). My Sweetie is a doll and trying to make me happy. Bless his heart. It's got to be so hard living with someone with chronic pain. I expect him to load up his pony and find a roping today after our ordeal yesterday. He deserves it. We were married in 1973 so he usually knows "when to hold'em and when to fold'em". Heehee.
I hear ya, Boo.
We've been inside all weekend. Kids are sick. Gonna have to take son to doctors tomorrow. he had the flu over 2 weeks ago and his nose is still spewing out sticky green stuff (ewww!) we noticed last night his neck on one side is severely swollen. His energy level hasn't been 100% since he was sick, though he says he feels fine.
Have a great last long weekend day!***
