This week so far has been a rough one. I feel like crap. Cramps, upset stomach and a headache to boot. Yep, it's that dreaded time of the month. Man, I get so tired of it. Seems like it just ends and them wham. It's back again. I don't know why, but it seems to be getting worse as I get older. As a teenager, it was really bad. I had prescription Tylenol with codeine. Now, I have prescription Motrin. 800mg to be exact. For a while, like after my first two kids. I seemed to be having an easier time each month. That continued right up until Carly was born. Now, it's right about back to the same way it was each month as a teenager. Ugh!
Otherwise, all is well. We've been busy playing outside. When the weather is nice enough. I'm not sure what's up with summer this year. It's been very chilly. More so than warm that's for sure.
Carly has been going to school 3 days a week. She seems to love it. She absolutely loves riding the bus. Some afternoons she doesn't want to get off. She wants the bus to take her to grandpa and grandmas house.
Today, I picked Carly up after school and headed to a local lab for her blood work. I'm such a nervous wreck. Of course, I have no results yet. Every time the phone rings I about jump out of my skin. Basically, they just want to get a check on her platelet count. The doc wants to see what range they are in. She hasn't been checked since 6/26. Hopefully, they have come up to a more suitable range. Normal would be just dandy! Her next appointment with Oncology isn't until November. God willing.
We have a new scanner. Well, it's not really brand new. It was my parents and they bought a new one. I got the old one. So, it's new to me! Once I get it all hooked up and figure out how the heck to use it. I will post some pictures of Carly through out the years. I just may toss in a few of Ashleigh and Brad too! After all, they are big part of the A B and C's mom!
That's about it for tonight. I feel crumby. Carly is already sleeping and I am going to follow suit.
