Hi Everyone! How are you? As always, I have my good days and bad days - forever trying to keep bleeds under control by keeping my blood pressure under 130/80. Apparently, anything higher than that, has me bleeding from the capillaries in my gums that I'm hoping Dr. Robinson will start working on in a couple of weeks! Until then it is physically and emotionally exhausting! My PCP had me double the dose of Clonodine I take every six hours and while that's working better ... it also knocks me out! Hard to stay awake @ work since I'm constantly staring @ a computer monitor and exercising my eyes with constant reading!
We're still battling Humana (Marks work insurance), while my work insurance has approved my procedures. So none of that has changed yet.
Did everyone have a fun Halloween? I had been wanting to have some costumes made for our furry kids - my sister graciously made time in her very busy schedule to do that for me! Mark and I chose the fabric and trim and they both already had their crowns - so here's a few photos of when Celia was working on their costumes and the kids once they were all done! I added some sheer, gold lace trim to the ends of Bella's cape! Mark had found a cabbage patch baby doll on the roof of one of the city buildings and I told him I should have wrapped the baby in a blanket and dressed Hanz and Bella again and they could have gone as William and Kate, Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge and Prince George!
One of moms good friends put this on her facebook page and I really liked it! I added a comment that said, "... and don't you forget it!"
Oh, I had mentioned in my last entry how my brother-in-law Jim had been taking a wood carving class with Mark - and here is his completed project! It is an intricately designed cane that he gave his dad George! It is impressive with so much detail! Wish this were a better photo - it doesn't do it justice!
I have to remind myself on a daily basis sometimes!
