Illness Update...

Well, just when we thought things were getting better...

Troy ended up in the ER with his jaw locked. He has this problem sometimes, but he can usually manage to get it unlocked himself. Not this time. He had to be sedated in order to unlock it. UGGHHHHH!!

Karsynn went to the doctor today and she tested positive for the FLU...UGHHHHHH x 10!!!

On March 9, I will take my first epidural injection for my lower back pain. They have to put me to sleep to do it, so I hope and pray it works! I just want some relief!!

Now, let's see what the rest of the week holds for us...

Are You Kidding Me??

Ok, I'm on a really bad roller coaster ride and can't get off. Can someone please pull the emergency break? As if my life hasn't been crazy enough lately, I ended up in the ER on Sunday night with an uncontrolable fever and a sore throat like nothing I've ever experienced. Can you guess...Strep Throat...a very bad case of Strep Throat. I missed work yesterday and managed a full day at work today, although I probably should have stayed home. Is someone pulling a cruel joke on me or what? I couldn't write a better story if I made it up myself. I'm pumping by body full of yet another foreign antibody to kill out yet another germ, which I probably picked up from one of my dear darlings at school, so let's pray this is it! I can't handle much more. Ok, enough venting. I'm trying to stay positive, but things haven't exactly been going my way. I'll try to post pictures soon. No time tonight. My little "China Monkey" is hanging from the bars of the never used treadmill and pulling her feet up to her hands on the bar. Can you say strong and flexible?? Oh to be that young again. I do well to get up and walk around anymore. Blessings...

The Saga Continues...

Sorry I haven't posted in some time. You know the old saying, "When it rains it pours," well it's still pouring at our house. Troy's dad finally got out of the hospital Friday. He's feeling much better now and is on the mend. I, however, am feeling like an old horse that needs "put down." I have back problems, and this bout of pain is just about to kill me. I can't seem to get over it this time. I see a specialist on Feb. 24 to begin Epidural Injections in my back. I'm really nervous about this, so please say a prayer for me. I don't know what else to do at this point. I have to try anything. I can't give Karsynn a bath without help. I can't pack her around like she wants me to. I'm just plain miserable! I'll upload some photos later.

Sorry for the Delay in Posts!

Life has been like a never ending roller coaster ride for us lately, so I apologize for my lack of posts, especially to those faithful followers who check in daily. So, what's been going on?

1. We traveled to Lima, OH to take Troy's parents to visit with his aunt who is very ill. It was a great trip. She was in good spirits and has made peace with God, so she's ready to go when He calls, which could be very soon.
2. We've missed 7 days of school in the last two weeks due to ice and snow and I just want it to GO AWAY! Teachers live for snow days, but enough is enough! We'll be going to school til the end of June at this rate.
3. Because of bad weather, Troy is still trying to finish up his basketball season, which I don't see happening anytime soon.
4. Troy is enrolled in 2 graduate classes at MSU right now, one which meets in Morehead on Thursday and the other which meets in Ashland (1 1/2 hour drive East of here) on Tuesday nights. So, needless to say, Karsynn and I only get to see him 3 nights a week until May. Mama is TIRED!
5. Troy's dad is very sick right now and we're not sure what's going on. He was in the ER Super Bowl Sunday in OH and is on his way back to the ER here in town tonight. I feel so sorry for his mom, because she's dealing with a dying sister and a sick husband. She's exhausted!
6. To top things off, Troy wrecked my KIA Sorento today on his way home from his parent's house. He's fine, but it did $3500 worth of damage to the right side of my vehicle, so that now has to be repaired.

When it rains, it pours!!!! Please say a prayer that it all ends soon, because Mama is about to lose her mind.

This face is what keeps me going...
