I haven't been around much. I started haveing some bad stomic trouble about 8 weeks ago. which i have been back and forth to the Dr over ( even lost aprox 18 pound.. not a good way to do it , but i needed to drop a few) . Then, on Valentines day i began to develop a sever pain in the right side. I have no appendix or gallbladder those have been gone for years so i thought maybe it was just a kidney stone but after 4.5 hours at the emergency room , 2 shots of morphine, blood work, and iv, a CT scan and a sonogram.... it's not a stone but a cyst in/on my kidney ..
let me state clearly now, I will NEVER let them EVER give me morphine again , because on top of the excruciating pain I was already in , I spent the rest of yesterday and into the wee hours of the morning this morning "worshiping the porcelain goddess" as it were. This resulted in sending my blood sugar to extremely low numbers and not being able to hold any thing down also meant a hole day with out any of my other meds.. this has just exacerbated all the other problems... I am a mess to say the least.
Yesterday was not all grim though ..
Look what I got yesterday!!!!!
Dark Chocolate Raisinets
YUMMMY!! (I can't wait till I feel good enough to open them up and munch them down... i hope it's soon)
Guess what else was in the box .........
THE TUREENS and CASSEROLES!!! I won these in one of Jaz's giveaways over at October Farm
( she's having another giveaway too for a beautiful set of goodies .. so pop on over and check it out )
Any way , these are so much prettier in person even and I adore thier wicker holders too. They are a perfect set for a lovely dinner for 2 ! or soup for 4 with yummy sides!!!! I cant wait till I get better and can use them ! Then I can make up for not being able to make my Hubby his traditional Valentines dinner and serve it in style but first I will make what I promised, just to break them in.
And isn't that note card just the cutest .. I love it
Thank you so much Jaz for such a wonderful give and the perfect bright spot on a dismal day .. i think there was a reason that the snow fell and delayed them a bit.. i sure needed the cheer they brought to me yesterday!
Well , after seeing the surgeon this morning and preregistering at the hospital for a but load of test for tomorrow and Monday, I am pretty wiped and still not feeling any better than before i went to the ER yesterday, ( but most definitely better this evening than i was yesterday evening) so i am gonna cut this post short..
If i am not around for a few days it's because I am still pretty sick and in a LOT of pain.
I will be on when I can..
Blessings one and all
