Danny had his 3rd annual Special Needs swim yesterday with some of his friends. It's always a great time! What a great group of people.....wish I could hang out with them more. What a wonderful time telling stories and jokes with people who understand and get our sick sense of humor and crazy lifestyle.
Danny is patiently waiting for his friends to get here :)
Someone managed to snap a photo of me in the pool too :)
This morning I was admitted at 6am for day surgery. I had my gall bladder removed.
Looking good in the green "dress", all ready to go
I have to remind myself that I has surgery this morning as I'm feeling pretty good. I'm up and walking around, did some laundry and putzed around in Av's room already and I've only been home for about 3.5 hours. Taking it easy is so hard for me to do. The worse right now for me is the scratchy throat from being intubated, but I'm sure things will get more painful once anesthesia and pain meds wear off.
This is the first procedure I've had done since being dx with MS so we'll see what, if anything happens with that. So far MS has laid low. I can only hope it continues this course.
As you can see I still have significant reactions at the injection site. This is 3 days old, eep!!
Unfortunately I am having issues with getting my injection meds ~ mail order pharmacy vs insurance crap. I believe it should be handled soon, but in the mean time there will be a lapse in meds till I can get my hands on some more again.
Avrianna went to her 2nd camp of the summer ~ Camp Onaway. The photos that have been posted on the FB page already, looks like she is having fun. I can't wait to hear all about it. Miss her tons, but with surgery I'm glad she's not around seeing I shouldn't be driving here there and everywhere.
Waiting to get on the bus to head to the Island :)
530am Friday Dan was called out to assist another town in a building Fire. The fire was in a building that handles recycled paper, so as you can imagine it was a long day fighting fire. Dan was there for 10 hours and I know other departments were there longer. Av and I checked out the neenah laundry as Dan was obviously busy and when we were done we treated ourselves to some Starbucks. We too were 1st responders.......for a baby bird. It fell out of its nest :( Av put in a cup and we ran it down to the wildlife rehab down the street from our house.
After our bird rescue it was off and running to take Danny to the eye dr. He got his eyes dilated as the Dr are looking to see any edema which could mean cranial pressures are too high. We are still trying to figure out why his temp and heart rate tanked so low a few weeks ago. Well no edema was found, but Danny does have a mild case of Cataract in his right eye already. Of course Mom of the year award.....go to get eyes dilated and NO sunglasses or hat with us. Sorry buddy!!
Just call him "Ray"
Dan and our good friend Ricky took the boat out on the river for the afternoon/evening on Saturday. It was a wonderful time. The weather was great and company even better. I was alil bummed the kids weren't with us seeing the day was so perfect, but I was also content not having to entertain them or have responsibilities for the time out. I just sat back and relaxed. It was very nice!!
Dan attempts to go to the ER by opening my bottle with a jack knife. I was thristy :) There were No injuries either
