Our Lil Diva/Showgirl




Soon to be 1 Elaina So Cute!

New Year Update 2010

Well I have been really bad about blogging lately, I have all kinds of excuses, but I am really gonna try harder this year!
So Elaina my grand baby will be 1 on the 19Th the day after I turn 38, shh I wanted to stop counting @ 35! LOL I can't believe how time flies ex specially when you want it to slow down!
Some of you know that last fall I was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid. I knew very little about this condition until I needed to know about it. How we got to that point was I had suddenly started feeling weakness and trembling in my legs mostly. Drastic temperature changes like hot flashes and more perspiration than I had ever had along with my heart doing heavy irregular beats and sometimes very rapid under very little exertion. So I went to see the doctor and they did blood test that showed that my thyroid is producing to much thyroid hormone I think it is called thyroxin but I may be wrong. So for the past few months they have had me on a pill to block that hormone and another one that is a Betta blocker I think to protect my heart but I may have misunderstood so don't quote me. The first med they had me on to block the hormone after a few weeks made me itchy all over so we switched meds and so far good. I feel so much better, but the next step may be a bit scary they want to do a biopsy of nodules on my thyroid. How they do it is by inserting a needle into my neck into the nodule. I am a little stressed about it and I don't know if I am awake during this or not! :o( After they get my thyroid normalized and after the biopsy for what I am still not sure, they will tell me if I have to have my thyroid out and if I do I will be on thyroid hormone replacement meds forever! They did say that the way it is headed it would eventually burn out on its own but I would feel really bad during and after because even tho it is a small gland in your neck it is a very important one. I hope that my sharing of what I know fills in the blanks for my loving family and anyone else who may be going through this same thing. I hope I got my facts right 2! :o) Just to let you know the meds my docs got me on the first one was Methimazole 10mg that's the one that made me itchy so they switched me to Propylthiouracil (I know mouthful!) & the Betta blocker for my heart Propranolol.
So enough about me Devin has had braces on for 1.5 years so far and he may be getting them off this month! Very Exciting! Dave is working like a nut as always & bowling the same way! I will update that more later & maybe post a video. Krissy & Elaina are doing very good & Krissy is dating a guy we like TONS! & I am sure I will be updating that more later also! & Shealeah our youngest is 3 chats our ears off sometimes we know what she means and sometimes we look at each other to see if they understood were we did not she has her own language we think sometimes! LOL I hope that's a good update sorry it is almost a novel! I hope everyone is haveing a great year so far! Here comes Tax season! JOY!! LOL Love you all TTYL
