It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

As is everyone else, we are getting all ready for Christmas over here!  It is so much fun and this is by far my most favorite time of year.  All of the decorations inside the house are done...except for the tree!  Last year we decided to throw it away after I was getting shocked a lot.  Needless to say, we have not bought one yet and are thinking of having a real Christmas Tree this year.  We will see!  Anyhow, here are some of my favorites around our home!

Lost Tooth and a Beautiful Finish

Michelle lost her first tooth today and the one right next to it is now loose! I guess that the tooth fairy has her first job in our house tonight! Also, I am proud to say that I finished the Book of Mormon today! I was so sad to see it end. It truly was a great experience and I loved reading the stories of amazing faith.

A Day That I Wish Never Happened

Yesterday at 5:00 am I woke up to an uneasy stomach. I vomited once and went back to bed. About 30 minutes later I felt like I was going to vomit again. Luckily, I didn't. Instead I sipped on a little bit of water and ate 2 ritz crackers. Well within 10 minutes those came up too. I had a fever and was aching and had a headache, but I couldn't take anything as I couldn't even hold water down. Once Lonnie came home he took care of the children and I was just lying around. I tried again to sip on some water and had maybe a tablespoon of Jello. Luckily, Lonnie's mom and sister were able to come over and watch the children so Lonnie could go to sleep. I think he said he went to bed at about 10:00 right after giving me a blessing. By this time I am feeling absolutely horrible and still vomiting like I have never done before in my life. At about 11:00 I went into our room and I could not control myself with all of the aches, having difficulty breathing, and just not comfortable whatsoever. After about 5 minutes my body seemed to stop. My breathing slowed way down, I all of a sudden was not achy. It was at that time that my hands were going numb, cramping up, and turning purple. This by far was the scariest moment of my life, I felt so helpless. Lonnie called 911 and they were in the process of sending out the fire department. I barely moved my left foot and I was in excruciating pain. I was freaking everybody out by how loud I was screaming. Apparently I was hyperventilating, which made my hands worse. Also, I was dehydrated to make matters worse. Well the medics came and everything checked out normal. I was able to slow down by breathing and I decided that I did not need to go by ambulance, but that Lonnie would just take me in. So we get to the hospital and I am starting to get uncomfortable again. My stomach was starting to ache and the aches and headache were back. My breathing became bad again and I was hyperventilating. My fingers and hands began to cramp up again and man did it hurt. I have never had that happen before and it is painful and freaky. After about 2 hours I finally got to see a doctor. They ran blood work and nothing came up. So they are thinking that I have some type of virus. The doctor stated that with a lot of hand washing and just being really careful it should not be contagious. I am praying that no one gets this. Today I am just feeling like I normally do when I am not feeling well. Not eating a lot but able to keep liquids and small amounts of food down, which I am so grateful for. I am just taking it easy today and will hopefully continue to get better.

How Can This Be

Today in the car Michelle kept asking me if I would be mad at her if her tooth got broken. I assured her that I wouldn't and kind of let it go. Tonight after dinner she came up and started wiggling one of her bottom teeth. Yuck! It looked so weird. I had to call my mom to make sure that she is at the right age for this and sadly she is. She is sitting up in her bed waiting for her tooth to fall out. Why must they grow up so fast?

Ready to Run

So it has been three weeks since surgery and the stitches were taken out today. For whatever reason this kind of stuff really grosses me out. Anyhow, this week I can do a few things that I haven't been able to do in several weeks. First up...I can wash my foot on Saturday! Secondly, I have to get off of crutches this week and next week will be out of the massive boot! Wahoooooo!! Although, I'm still hesitant to do anything with it. I guess this is normal. Things are going just fine and hopefully will continue to. I came back home on Thursday and it's been crazy, but what else is new? This week is just like any other with a doctor's appointment today; therapy, school, and pest control tomorrow; school and housecleaner coming Thursday; and school and dog grooming appointment on Friday. I'll tell ya there is never a dull moment. Also, I am so hating this heat. It is a bit ridiculous! I am sooo ready to run to another state. I have been looking at what Utah has to offer and there are some positives but there are also so negatives. I'm sure it will never happen, but hey I can dream!
