I know I haven't written in awhile but I have had a lot going on. Last weekend we had a Halloween party Friday night that we went to at our friends house, it was a lot of fun but I didn't dress up. I know what you are thinking....How can you go to a Halloween party and not dress up?? Well I HATE dressing up and I never do it and my friends love me anyway! I did put little devil horns on my head but that is as good as it gets! :)

Saturday I hung around the house and made 2 pies and homemade potato salad for Sunday and then Saturday night we just went out to eat with some friends. We went to a steak house that we haven't been to in probably 2 years (you know the ones where you can eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor) and boy has it gone down...I remember the steak being awesome and it was less than satisfactory and so was everyone else's!

Sunday, we had to get up super early because we were getting family portraits done with my family. It took a long time but they turned out really good! I will try and put some of them up later. My whole family then came back to our house and we watched football and hung out and had some awesome food! All in all it was a good weekend.

Now for this week...I have had something to do everyday thanks to Gainesville. Remember the post where I was all happy and I couldn't believe how fast my doctors appt was last time we went? Well I get a call from the tx coordinator last week saying that if I wait until my next appt (sometime in January) all my test will be expired and that I need to come back up to Gainesville sometime before Thanksgiving to do them. Now we were JUST there and I did not want to go back already so I asked if I could do them in town and fax the results to her and she said yes...thank goodness! So Monday I had to do a PFT at my doctors office then go next door and wait for an hour just to get a simple BMP drawn! Then yesterday I had to do a six minute walk and not to mention I need my port flushed!! Its never ending....

To top it all off Monday when I woke up from taking a nap my arms were hurting really bad. I sometimes get what feels like arthritis pain (but it isn't arthritis). It comes and goes and there isn't really any rhyme or reason for it. Luckily, I haven't had to deal with it in well over a year but it is annoying! Right now it is affecting both shoulders, both my wrist and some of my fingers. Its just really usually last for about a week and it is WAY worse when I first wake up in the morning. Has anybody else heard of this??

Well, I am off to run some errands....hopefully later I can get some pictures up here from Halloween and my family pictures!

Glad I could help with my house call flush.
