January 2015

jan2015 006My family doctor has been doing blood work tests on me, and so far nothing is showing.  My weight keeps going up and down within a 20 lbs range.  I’m getting frustrated and worried the doctors will just give up.  My knee is still messed up!  Not as horrible as it is at first, but it’s NOT getting better, and I can barely walk let alone do exercising!

jan2015 012My John Constantine doll came in to the comic book shop here!  I LOVE it!  He is also going to order me the next graphic novel I need.  I have a list of them all published, and am going through in order of the ones I have, and trying to get the few I’m missing.

jan2015 010I’m done Gone, by James Patterson.  About a man who is in protective custody with his children bc a scary murderer he put away is on the loose.  Well of course the police are no good, so they bring him back to catch the guy while his kids, etc. stay in hiding.  I liked it!

Now I’m reading Gone Girl again.  I really want to see the movie finally, but I want to finally get this book finished up.  it’s hard to know where you’re at in a book on a Kobo, bc it only shows the number of pages in the chapter you are reading, but I’ve got to be around 100 pages in, and it feels like it needs to pick up a bit.

jan2015 009I’ve started trimming the pet’s nails, instead of having my PSW do it, bc it’s important to me that I do it.  I thought Roxy would be the easiest, but she’s been biting and everything else.  Stella, who I thought would be the worst, was the best out of the guinea pigs, and miss Reese babe was good for the most part, but gave me a few warning bites once she had, had enough, but didn’t actually hurt me.

jan2015 004Got my dental work done finally.  It was very painful, and hard on my POTS (adrenalin in freezing).  The other version without the adrenalin was terrible for actually freezing and hurt SO much more.  Just glad it’s over with!

I don’t have any doctor appointments again until the Spring when I go to the G I.

BeFunky_null_14.jpgNicole and Adam came up with their new pup Lilly, whom I adore.  She had made on Vista Print, a beautiful calendar for me, with photos of all my furry babies and family too.  It turned out PERFECT.  I love it!  They came over today too and we got pizza and just relaxed after they had gone on a hike with Lilly near by.

Finally got dad and Lois out for lunch/dinner too.  Dad got seconds, and Lois had me email her the recipe (rolled spinach lasagna) so I’d say it turned out well!  Lol.  I love cooking for people when I’m well enough to!

Talk Soon…ish!

Ash,

PS  Made the decision to finally get rid of the fish tank.  Going to keep my small Beta one, but the big one is just too much work.  Got great homes for them all, and the angel is going to my mom 🙂

Happy New Year!

dec2014 019Going way back… my birthday was good!  I turned 32.  I went to the G I in the morning, and got to relax and enjoy a day of doing nothing.  With a nice yummy boiled dinner with my Gram’s awesome, wackie cake!

Nick’s 9th birthday party was fun.  He had two friends over for the night, and got tons of fun gifts.  I got tons of pictures!

dec2014 004I was to go in for an iron infusion, but decided against it.  My Neuro wanted it for me, not bc I have low iron, but bc I have restless legs.  I was cool with that, until I found out, if you have narrowing of the bowel (which I do) that it can cause complications and make it very blocked!  Plus, for some reason, a lot of people getting the infusions, have an anaphalectic (sp?) allergic response to it.  So I decided to talk to my G I about it, the next time I go in to see him before doing them.

dec2014 015Christmas Eve was nice.  Amanda couldn’t come, but Meghan and her husband came with Nick and I.  It was great to see and cuddle my great nephews too.  The oldest was running around chasing Nick… they grow WAY TOO FAST!

dec2014 011Christmas morning, aunt Kelly and grams picked me up, and we went up to mom’s. I was so sick I swore I had the flu, and just laid on the couch with the fan blowing on me until I was well enough to do gifts.  I got a lot of nice things, and everyone seemed happy with the gifts I got them!

dec2014 017Boxing Day was boring at mom’s.  It was just Amanda, Meghan, her husband and I with Nick, until Meghan’s son Liam finally got there.  Then it was more fun to see him open all our gifts for him.

dec2014 006The next night, Amanda and I went to gram’s with mom and had dinner with aunt Kelly before she caught the train home.  We got a bunch of group pictures done.  Nice and silly ones, and I snuck in an african violet, Nicole had given me for grandma.

dec2014 016Since then, I have been crazy run down.  Just getting up to get my coat and shoes on has me huffing and puffing.  I’m so freaking exhausted, and the restless legs will NOT let me sleep.  Then of course my Patella problem I get with my knees hit me.  Why I don`t know, but it`s slowly getting better now thankfully.

dec2014 014I seriously just want to cry lately.  The idea of going to the bathroom to get ready for bed seems truly too much for me.  I`m just so weak and tired feeling, with a lot of pain to boot.  I feel like I can`t get enough rest.  I really hope my family doctor will help me figure this out, when I go to see her this month.

10846188_10154894238555594_8320126893563515067_nNew Years was boring.  I was so sick, so I just stayed at home watching Dead Files,and giving myself the creeps until midnight, and watched the ball drop.

Speaking of New Years, today is my Zeusy`s 13th birthday.  I love my handsome little love.  He has been there with me through SO much!

Talk soon!

Ash,
