Why me?

Well as you all know, I have been very sick this last month.  Last Friday everything started all over again.  My diarrhea and vomiting came back.  Saw my doctor on Monday.  He put me back on antibiotics, referred me to a Gastroenterologist and set me up for an ultrasound of my abdomen.  On Thursday this week, I had my ultrasound which was very painful as I was completely full of gas.  Glad I didn't pass any during the test!!  LOL!!
Yesterday I saw my doctor again and he had the results of  my ultrasound.  It shows that my gallbladder is constrained and the walls are thickening.  Which means for me that the gallbladder is not working any more.  So he has recommended that I have surgery to have it removed.  But he has not set up the surgery yet.   Because he wants me to see the Gastro doctor first and make sure that nothing else is going on with my stomach and intestines before having surgery.  I see the Gastro on Tuesday.  I sure hope nothing else is going on.  I'm very tired and sick of being sick!!!  I just want to get better!!

Bad 2 weeks

I am starting to think that someone doesn't like me.  LOL!!!  Two weeks ago I fell and ripped my lower right leg from the knee down to mid shin apart.  Then it got infected.  Went to the doctor and put me on antibiotics.  Then last week I started to get 102 temps with severe diarrhea and vomiting. Which I went to my doctor on Monday and he told me that I now have a infection in my stomach and put me on a different antibiotic.  OMG!!!!  Is all this really happening to me????  I am now wondering what else is going to happen to me.  You know that everything happens in "3's" and it's about that time this week for something else to happen.  I surely hope not!!!!  I don't think that I can take any thing else happening to me.

I am just now starting to feel a little better today.  Leg is healing nicely.  Of course, it's at that itchy pealing stage.  And I am now just starting to eat real food today.  I lost 12 lbs in 5 days.  Needed to loose some, but not this way!!!  LOL!!!  I am really tired and know that it will take another week or two before I am totally back up to par.

But my youngest DD has been the best little nurse anyone could ask for.  She is constantly checking up on me and even cooking me grilled cheese sandwich.  She gets my drinks and makes sure that I have everything that I need.  She's going to make a "Super Mom" someday!!!

Well back to bed for me. :(

Here we go again

Well I thought that I would start a blog again.  Not sure how well I will keep up with it, but will give it a good honest try.
My girls are both starting school on July 19th and I am so EXCITED!!!!  They have been driving me absolutely crazy for the last 7 weeks and I really need a break from them.  They are also very excited to go back to school to see there new teachers and see old friends.
My husband has been working on the weekend's at the vineyard that now has a new owner.  They are very nice and treat my hubby with lots of respect.  Picking will be at the end of this month and we will all be going to help.  Of course, it's always facinating to me how wine is made.
I've been working lots of Passione Ricamo models over the summer.

This is "Fae Eye" copy righted by Passione Ricamo and took me 6 weeks to finish.

This is "Little Spring Fae" copy righted by Passione Ricamo and took me 1 week to finish.

This is  "May Rose Fae" copy righted by Passione Ricamo and took me 5 day to finish.

So as you all can see, Laura has been keeping me very busy.  I also have more models to do.  They are: "Fuchsia Fae", "Little Summer Fae" and "Sunflower Fae"  I am half way done with "Fuchsia Fae" and will post a pic once I am done.

Hope that everyone is having a wonderful summer!!!!!
