Rash Rash Rash

Well, I am at the end of a 4 weeks outbreak of whatever the heck I have. Could it be Still's Disease or do I have Celiacs Disease - hopefully we will know soon. The vampires at the dr's office took 9 - yes 9 VILES of blood on Monday to run a bunch more tests on me. I am back on Prednisone (so much for the diet) for a few weeks to get this outbreak under control. The joint pain was much better after about 3 days, but I still have a lovely red rash covering about 50% of my body. This time the arms and back itched like no tomorrow - that only happened the 1st outbreak. The 2nd one (4 wks after little man arrived) didn't itch at all, but the joint pain was worse.

There have been several nights the last few weeks were I have been nothing but miserable- pins and needles - like my skin is going to crawl off. That's better now, so I am in a better mood! Dr Oracle has to help out more when I am in an outbreak because my wrists/fingers/hands don't move as well...I am too young to feel this $#*@ old!

New Website

I have created a new webpage- Right now, its just little man, but hey I hope to add more.

This is his little site/blog about life as a little dude - check it out! Right now its open - but if I have to do so, I will PW protect it.

Remembrance Photography -

Dealing with the death of a child - either through miscarriage, stillbirth or whenever is never an easy thing to deal with - Although I never speak of it outside family - I suffered a loss in 2004 that I will never, ever forget.

One site supports infant bereavement photography. I please everyone to sign their petition to raise awareness for this subject!

My heart goes out to all the parents listed and for the countless others who have had to face this kind of tragedy.

Going Crazy Man

I have never been good at puzzles/riddles - my mind just has trouble with these concepts. I have been struggling this morning trying to get through Batch 1 of these puzzles

Count to 23 - I was tagged

I was tagged....

January 30, 2006 - "I had gotten dry sockets in both of the teeth."
I wrote this blog as a follow up to my first ever root canal. I have the most sensitive teeth (several DDS have said so) and hard to numb - so I need several shots, gas and more recently have been getting valium to get any dental work. But I was pregnant this time and could not get gas or even take Advil. It turned out OK - not pleasant, but not the end of the world

Actually right now I am having the worst toothaches (MAYBE WORSE THAN THE DRY SOCKETS) - I pray its not an abscessed tooth - but merely a reaction from all the sinus/cold stuff that Boo and I have been dealing with for the last 2 weeks. Dr. Oracle was sick but got over it by staying home from work 1 day - I am still dealing with it and throbbing pain in the left hand side of my face. I am now on antibiotics to get rid of any infection - but yesterday was so bad, I went to the ladies room and cried a little.

For those who I have not tagged and you want to play along
