Weekend Plans

So glad its Friday!! Yesterday was my last day of home IV's and today I went to my doctors office to pick up my 28days of AzLi.

I am feeling good so I have know doubt I will make it through the New Year without needing abx again. My weight is still really good, the last time I got weighed I was 115 pounds which for me is AWESOME. I can remember is high school it seemed like such a chore just to keep my weight above 100 pounds! In the last couple of months I have gone from being a size 0 jean (which I have been since high school) to a 1, then 2 and now today I just bought a size 3!!

I don't know how to explain all of a sudden being able to gain weight AND keep it on but its kind of nice. I just wish it would spread out to my legs and matter how much I weigh I have super skinny arms and legs and I hate that.

To switch topics a bit...I know I have talked a little about wanting to start yoga and that there was a class at the gym I wanted try, but I kept hesitating since I know NOTHING about yoga at all. I don't want to go in there and be completely lost and look like an idiot. So I have been doing tons of research online reading reviews from people who have purchased DVDs and I finally decided on an at home beginners yoga to buy. Its called Yoga Zone: Premiere Collection for beginners and its specifically for someone like me with no prior knowledge of yoga. I figure I can work on these for awhile until I feel somewhat comfortable and then when I need more of a challenge I can sign up for the classes! Wish me luck!! :)

I went to the grocery store the other day and I bought all my ingredients for Thanksgiving. I am making 3 pies (apple, pumpkin, and english toffee pecan!) and green bean casserole (my fav.) In the words of Rachael Ray...YUMMO! I can't wait, oh and the day before TG my mom, little sister and my SIL Stephanie are going to see NEW MOON...I have been so excited for this movies release I can hardly contain myself its going to be so good! All four of us are MAJOR Twilight fans.

Other than that I did a little more Christmas shopping today. Can you believe I am almost done already? I only need a few more items and I can officially say I don't ever have to step inside a mall/store in the whole month of December and I am very happy to be able to say that! I hate stores during the holidays way to many people.

Well I hope everyone enjoys there weekend. We have our nieces birthday party tomorrow but other than that we have no plans. We just started the first season of Dexter tonight. Very interesting show...anyone watch it?

Im Home

I got home Thursday evening!! Its so nice to be home and sleep in my own bed.

Last night we went to our favorite Japanese Steak house for dinner. Danny had a meal from the hibachi table while I had 2 sushi was delicious! :)

I also had one of the best pedicures ever yesterday. I went in with a little bit of a headache and after an hour of feet rubbing and sitting in a massage chair I was very relaxed. I was going to get my eyebrows waxed yesterday too but the chick who usually does it wasn't there so I am going in an hour to get them done.

This afternoon my Uncle is coming into town so once he gets to my house we are all gonna caravan down to my parents house together. I haven't decided if we are gonna sleep there or not....its just such a pain to pack ALL my stuff for one night somewhere when its so much easier just to drive home. We'll see.

Have a great weekend! :o)

Oh Yeah...I also wanna give a shout out to Sara who is running in the Iron Girl 5k tomorrow in AZ....Have fun and Good Luck!!

Thursday's the day!

Saw my doc this morning and I am pretty much all set to go home on Thursday!

He did end up putting me on prednisone but I will probably be done by the time I leave. He also has me doing 3% hypertonic saline twice a day which I hate.

I used to do that treatment all the time even at home but it used to irritate my lungs so much and make me wheeze that he ended up just d/c it because it wasn't doing me any good. I just started it yesterday and it seemed ok so we will see...

Danny brought Brodie into see me on Saturday! He had him in a little was so cute his little face was sticking out the zipper trying to see out! LOL All the nurses loved him and thought he was being a very good boy just laying with me in bed. He misses his mom! :o)

Halfway there...

One week down and I am feeling great! Compared to my last few admissions this one is a breeze. I only had one very low fever and I have been able to ween my O2 down rather quickly this time.

I do still have a little bit of tightness in my upper airways and my doc said today that he could hear a little weez on the right side. If its still there by Saturday or I still feel tight he will start me on some steroids.

Not much else is going on so as long as I continue to get better I am planning to go home sometime next week!
