More stress awaits

I've had 5 rounds of iv infused iron die to some new anemia. I'm now scheduled for a laparoscopy and ablation on october 5. What else can go wrong? Ended up in the ER Wednesday night with a severe tension type headache that still hasn't gone away! What's next?

Steroids a no go

I seemed a tad bit better, pain wise on the steroids, however, I cried and screamed daily. I was not a happy person and didn't like anyone! I am still hurting quite a bit and don't go back to the doctor until May 8th, still a week away. I guess I will hurt all the rest of my life.

Well ball season is in full swing. Erins first game is tonight. Clay has been practicing but his games aren't until May. I had another back surgery on March 28th to remove the hardware on the right side of my fusion. Finally started some steroids and I think it may be working some. It will be a couple of more weeks before I know if it really worked the way it's supposed to. Have a family/friend beach trip scheduled for the end of May and I can't wait for the break from all the stress!

update on back and kids

Going for another procedure today. This is a trial for a permanent nerve stimulator. Not looking forward to it, as they must stick yet another huge needle into my back. Who would be, right? I am running out of options and this is the last resort before opening my back up again. I will post the results later. Clay has been manager of the HCMS basketball team and that wrapped up last night. Baseball tryouts are tomorrow, I sure hope he makes it. He will be sad if he doesn't. I know we all have to go through disappointments, but we hate it when its our children. Erin got tested for TAG. I will go to a meeting on Thursday to see if she is accepted. Zachary is already in it, so if she makes it, I will see some competition in the future!

Yay me!

I'm now an official Disney booking affiliate! Super great. Im part of Guru travel, which is my friend Kelly. She is the gal that got me started blogging in the first place and im thankful for all she has done for me! We are planning a Guru trip possibly to Disney for Flower Garden. That would be cool. Since I started my Addicted to Mickey blog and open the Facebook page I have 212 fans.
Back surgeon wants me to have a permanent stimulator put in. I'll probably do the trial, but I'm so not wanting to go thru with the permanent one.
Erin has started winter basketball. Clay has baseball tryouts near the first of february.
