Looking for our Wish Lists? Here they are.

Please pray.

Please pray right now.  Very hard.  Both of our computers have come down with a horrible virus.  My laptop didn't have much on it (because it did this three months ago and I lost everything) and I can still kind of use the internet and have emailed myself some of my documents.  Please pray that my checkbook and medical bill files have not been corrupted.  As well as the photos from February to now.

Richard's desktop will not even turn on, it is requesting the boot disk and will not even shut off without it.  I had to force a shutdown by holding in the power button. 

I have lost access to my packing list and am now completely lost. 

I had my biopsy this morning and am still in pain. 

This just seems like the last straw.  I'm pretty worked up about it all.  And not looking forward to having to tell R, try to figure out how to get both of these fixed and already worried about all the stuff we will lose on R's computer if we can't retrieve it.  All of our music and tons of photos are on there.

Richard Update June 26

For those of you who know what's going on with Iran and the movement of ships (if not, google it), will understand why I was so THRILLED to get this email this morning.

Well, had a first this cruise. I got to watch the other carrier pass by us. Got some pics of it, very cool site.

I replied, "It passed you?"  The reply: "Yes."

WHEEEEEEE!!!  This might actually be the for real return date!!

Just got an email about the Disney Store website that has the three talking Toy Story dolls Lillian wants for $15 each!  $10 cheaper than the ones on sale at Target this week.  BUT the sale ends today (Thursday June 24, 2010).  I can get free shipping.  I'm going to order her two tee shirts that are $4.99 each.  Does anyone want to chip in to get her one (or more) of these dolls?

Toy Story 3

Ashley and I took Lillian to see her first movie at a theater.  It was Toy Story 3 and aside from a slight puking incident, she did awesome.  She LOVED it!

As a side note to that, she is DESPERATELY wanting the talking Buzz, Woody and Jessie dolls.  They are normally $35 and are on sale this week at Target for $25.  If anyone wants to get any one of these three for her, she would LOVE it.  I almost picked up all three today, but obviously that would be a buzz kill to my budget for this period.

Richard has said that we should stop sending mail.  This includes packages and letters.

I got the results back from the spinal tap today.  I did have some positive indicators for MS.  But the numbers have to be at a certain level to actually qualify as "MS Positive" and mine are not quite that high.  The dr. said that I "have MS, but don't HAVE MS."  Yeah, figure that one out.  I have an appointment with them for next week to see what he wants me to do from here. 

In the meantime, I have still been having pretty severe wrist pain and an occasional bump under the skin.  Not sure what that's all about.  Seems to be now that it happens really badly about once a week and lasts for two or three days. 

I am still seeing the specialist once, sometimes twice a week.  They have found some small imbalances that we are correcting with vitamins and medicine and I have a biopsy scheduled for the last week of June.  That should be the last diagnostic test I have to have. 

I'm sick of dr. appts.

Well Dr. Kelly called today, which TOTALLY freaked me out since it was Saturday, but she said that the diabetes test was NEGATIVE!!  And all the other tests she ran came back at normal levels!

Which are both great things. Except, we are again back at square 1.

Health Update

Lillian went to the dr. today.  We saw the lady I like best again. 

She said:
MRSA looks good
Left tube is still in, right one is almost out or out (Thank you! Now I will skip the ENT appt this month and make one for next month)
She is concerned about hte drinking excessively and the random vomiting most. 
She started her on Claritin once a night to help with the stuffyness.
She started her on Zyrtec twice a day for refulx to see if that stops the vomiting and helps her want to eat more.  (Reflux is what they tested her for when she was tiny and spitting up so much)
She sent her for bloodwork.  It included the A1C test for diabetes and a bunch of other tests and levels.  I'm hoping we know by Monday.

Went to CHKD to get the bloodwork done because she said that would be the easiest for Lil.  WHOA BOY.  If that was easy, I'd hate to see what hard was.  It took me and three nurses to hold her while hte other one actually did it.  And when he did it, she screamed so loudly that a nurse and a doctor flew into the room.  Afterwards she was just screaming for her Blankie (which I forgot) and Daddy.  She wanted nothing to do with me, but was literally hyperventillating from crying so hard and was just clinging to me.  We had to sit in the waiting room for about 15 minutes before she could calm down enough for me to take her out to the car.  She bent her arm over the bandaid immediately and honestly didn't unbend that arm for about four hours.  I got her a donut (she's been asking for one for days, oddly enough) on the way home, pink frosting with "sparkles".  I had to bribe her with candy and still hold her arm to take the bandaid off.  It is a little bruised already, hoping its not too bad tomorrow. 

I also had a dr. appt today.  They are wondering if I have MS and wanted to do a test.  The test is a Spinal Tap.  That was AWESOMELY FUN to do.  Let's check another thing off the list of "Things you should never have to do alone".  Whee!!!!!!!!!!

RIchard Update June 2

Yay rough waters comin! A big storm is going to hit and crash into one of the countries over here it looks. Watch the news about it :D I’m hoping that we get to help for a humanitarian award. We’re having to tie thigns down because we’re rockin so much, its awesome

So, the storm is actually a cyclone, or back home it would be called a hurricane. 300 miles away from us heading towards us. 9 ft waves right now, will probably get up to 15 overnight and then the next day 18 to 20ft probably. We’re really rockin :D
