Well Christmas has come and gone and needless to say I didn't get around to making half the the things I had planed on. I got sick and that set me back about a week and half, and with all the secret buddy stuff I procrastinated about, can imagine what I was like in the week before Christmas. So..what got done got done and what didn't well, still hasn't, LOL!

This was by far the worst Christmas ever, Jason had picked up a laptop on sale the day after Thanksgiving so he had given it to me 2 weeks before Christmas. Now, whne he went shopping on black Friday, he picked up a few things I asked him for and that's all I got under the tree :o( Boy was I disappointed!! No surprises, no treats, no special somethings this year.
Don't worry..I made sure Jason knew how hurt my feelings were, I couldn't help it, it was written all over my face when I was looking all over for my present.


Christmas is sneaking up on me!

I'm here blogging when I have quite a few presents to be making! The weather is very icky today sleet and freezing rain or some such, so it's perfect weather, or excuses to be inside crocheting, baking and crafting.
I found a very neat website with the most adorable and easy ornaments for the kids to make and just as soon as we get to making them I'll post pictures!



Well I did it. I went and had the spinal cord stimulator put in. What a huge mistake that was! I have this enormous battery pack jutting out my back it hurts like hell when I bend over, just from the strain of the stupid thing. Not to mention how uncomfortable it is to lean against anything, like DRIVING!
Not to mention the leads in the middle of my shoulder blades, how annoying they are. It's been over a month and I haven't even turned the stupid thing on more than twice. It's awful.
I'm still on all the meds I was on before, actually the dr's increased them. What a nightmare :o(


Teri's Neckwarmer!

A lovely lady named Teresa "Teri" Turnbull from my knit/crochet group wanted to share her pattern for a neckwarmer she makes. She was trying to post a picture on the group which doesn't allow attachments, so I decided to share the picture for her here...
Isn't it GORGEOUS!!!
I wish I could knit myself one, but I'm still struggling with that because if the RDS... oh well :o(



I really haven't updated in a long time! Well a lot has changed I noticed, lol. I read my profile and I am no longer a SAHM, I am a working mom, although I am home now on medical leave.
So...last August(07)I started working at the town animal shelter and I LOVE it!
However in November I got bit by a feral cat, due to some serious stupidity by a co-worker, who shall remain nameless. The cat punctured my radial nerve in my left hand, the inital injury healed quite ncely due to a terrific hand surgeon, however, the injury which left me with RSD/CRPS in my left hand. This is an incredibly painful and debilitating illness, but I am blessed with a wonderful pain management doctor. After OT and a serious commitment I went back to work in 6 weeks and was doing really with medical June 08 after being told by my direct supervisor I was not to handle strange cats, the secondary supervisor ordered me to care for a cat that was in medical distress and I got bit again, directly on the spot where I was having all of my RSD issuses.
This set me back to worse than I was before!
My doctor not wanting to take any chances decided to jump right on it, he immediately put me on strong pain meds(even though I balked at opiates) and ordered Stellate Ganglion Blocks back to back which were unsuccessful. now I am scheduled for a SCS(spinal cord stimulator).
