*Waves* I am a live

Sorry I have been MIA, I didn't disappear on on purpose. Just spent way more days than I could ever have wanted too, almost 2 weeks in the big house, otherwise known as the hospital, or Brookwood Medical Center.

I had been feeling bad for about a week and then totally stopped tinkling, bp through the roof and swollen like a macy thanksgiving day float. Miserable.

Went and and of course was promptly detained. The first days were filled with lots of pain meds for the bone pain, that was making me want to hack my legs off amoung other things, with a chainsaw.

The first day I was puking my brains out from pain *tmi* but hey,I am being honest.

Then my doctor came to my rescue and the pain pump was a life saver. Literally kept me from wanting to perform surgery on myself.

Had to adust to lots of new meds, never fun and have even more to start after a whole 'nother shebang of testing.

My kidneys are working a little better but still have some issues, they are leaning more towards a lupus flare than anything, as to what started to snowball rolling down the hill.

I finally was pardoned and am still in some pain and still have issues but resting at my mom and dad's. They are closer to the doctor, they have a pool and they can help so it's a win win situation.

Just wanted you to know I was alive and will try and keep up to date on you all's comings and goings!

Missed ya!

A whole lot of nothing and headed to big school.

The big cheese, Houston Chance is offically headed to big school.Not sure when he went from the cute little baby on the slideshow to the little boy in the cap and gown. But he has grown up. Seems like yesterday and forever ago that he was that small.

Other than that, and me feeling under the weather not much has been going on, he has been home from school so we are playing and doing some school stuff so he retains everything , or most of it :)

Man, he is hyper :P
