I'mmmmm Baaaaacck

Well "First, I got tonsillitis, followed by appendicitis and pneumonia. After that I got erysipelas with hemachromatosis. Following that I got poliomyelitis and finally ended up with neuritis. Then they gave me hypodermics and inoculations."

You must be thinking... "Boy, she had quite a time!"

But all I have to say is "I thought I'd never pull trough that spelling test."

No seriously... Gout is nothing to laugh about. I have been burned in a fire, suffered cellulites and had natural child birth more then once with no pain meds, but this is the worst pain I have even endured. The hospital has those smiley face pain charts ranging from 1 to 10, well I told them I was off the chart at about 30. I still have pain, but it's now a comfortable 5 and I can walk without assistance from the walker. I no longer feel like I am 89 years old.

As for the computer issues, well my son got this one to work after cleaning out the 7 feet of dust that collected inside of it. Not sure if it will last but I am thankful to be online at least.

My mom has ordered me a laptop from Dell that I will have 12 months to pay off. Financially it will be a struggle but it is necessary because sitting here at the desk is not helping the foot pain at all. It should be here the first week of May, thank you Jesus.

I am planning on getting to church tomorrow, I have missed 2 Wednesdays and a Sunday and that's more then I can take. I even managed to take a shower tonight so I wouldn't have to aggravate the foot in the morning before hand.

I have uploaded some pictures onto Ravelry of the stuff I've been doing since I have been bed bound. I will post them here too over the next few days for those who can't see Ravelry stuff.

Adam was here for the weekend and it was great to see him again. Life is good.

I hope to get to everyones Blogs again as soon as I get the laptop up and running until then at least I can blog. Woo Hoo.

Psa 30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

It's great to see you back! I've missed you, even though Shelly did a great job filling in for you! I'll have to take a look at Rav later to see what you've been up to while you were off line.

Went to my gd's wedding yesterday and had a blast! Got compliments on my weight loss and got to be with family! There's nothing better! We were all exahusted when we got home from the 2 hr. ride last night though!

Great seeing you back! Talk to you soon!
