Wow! It seems like forever since I last blogged! I already heard about that from Shalon! She e-mailed me telling me I was MIA after the storm and I hadn't blogged either! So, even though I should iron my clothes for tomorrow ... or I would love to be in bed reading ... I love blogging even more!
Last week our family was discussing the possibility that Ike may be heading toward Corpus Christi! Mark works for the City of Corpus Christi, so he has to stay, no matter what! Mom wanted to evacuate, as did the Fossums of course because they live out on the island! Meanwhile, Davis and his roommate James evacuated Galveston probably Thursday of last week! As did my friend Dorinda from Pasadena (or as she calls it, "Stink-a-dina")! I work @ the courthouse and had told my supervisor that my family wanted to evacuate, so I put in a leave form to take Thursday off! We had heard that our office may be closed Thur./Friday - but no ... when it was all said and done, our office closed @ noon Thursday and all of Friday! Luckily (for us) Ike didn't come our way, so I had Thur., Fri., Sat. and Sunday off!
I finished my book Eclipse, and am already on page 300 or so of Breaking Dawn (see photo)! Mark calls me bobble-head, because I can't put the book down and I get so sleepy due to the meds, and my head just bobbles and I drop the book occasionally, but I don't want to stop reading it! Mark tried to slowly move the book from my hands, as I had fallen asleep w/it, but it woke me up! Had to read a bit more!
I hadn't really had much to blog about - but I know I had mentioned that Saba had a playdate weekend w/Ryan the monkey! Ryan belongs to a co-worker, Grace that will be getting married later this week! Now, Saba has a sister named Lucia! She is the Build a Bear my sister Celia made in CO - but then kinda just left Lucia behind @ Grandmas. I thought Lucia might enjoy living in our home w/another bear! Lucia was named after Josh Groban's violinist! Anyway - see photos of the furry kids! I take Saba w/me to work - she's my therapy bear and makes me feel good to have her around!
I've been doing so great w/no bleeds! Until .... yesterday, while @ work, I was feeling around my left ear area and some of the scab came off! (Spock isn't the only one w/weird ears - @ least my left one is)! Of course I soon saw that blood was also coming along - luckily I caught it before it even touched my polo shirt! My co-worker/friend Diana came to help me put some surgicel on the area since I couldn't see that myself too well!
Three weeks until we go to Colorado again! I always look forward to going on these trips - it means I'm one step closer to being done w/my embolizations! The other day one of the defendants that came in had a bandage over her throat area, so I was asking her about having a trache, since there is a possibility that I'll have to have one. She immediately said it was very manageable and not @ all a problem! Good to know!
Today during my work hours, I took the department deposit to the Tax Assessors Office and I hadn't been there in a while, so I was looking forward to saying hello to all the ladies who work in the area! They are all so friendly - so I'm sending a shout out to the bookkeepers @ the Tax Assessors that inquire after my health and issues! Let's congratulate Kathy who just got married in Vegas! Her new husbands name is Mark! Thanks ladies - you are part of my avm journey by keeping me in your prayers and always smiling @ me - making me feel normal!
Ok - lets hope all will remain in order w/out too many incidents/issues before I head back to see Dr. Yakes and the gang @ Swedish! Please keep my new friend Marijn from Holland in your prayers! He has an avm on his side and has been having bleeds, so he is hospitalized @ the moment! Marijn will be having surgery soon to remove the rest of his avm! Yikes!
We also pray for all the people that live in or near Galveston! Davis (see photo)(he is soooo handsome!) will have to finish his first semester @ College Station, since his college in Galveston will not be ready after all the damage from hurricane Ike!
Love to all!
