One week down...

Yesterday was one week I have been admitted in the hospital and I am feeling great. The best news is that I saw my doctor this morning and I am going home Thursday afternoon! I of course will be going home on one more week of abx but I don't mind. :)

My first 3 days of being in the hospital where rough of course. I had the usual 3 days of fevers and that overall feeling of sluggishness but by day 4 I was feeling much better.

I am on 3 abx this time which seem to be doing the trick. I am also on prednisone which is of course making my sugars all crazy but that's to be expected.

We have some friends who recently got engaged and are having an engagement party on Saturday so I was really hoping to be home. I am tired of missing out on things because I am stuck in the stupid hospital all the time! So when my dr said I could go home on Thursday I was really excited.

Well that's all I got. I know not to exciting but how much could I have to talk about from just sitting in a room for a week? LOL

Oh yeah...I did get to see the first room that they are working on at the hospital and it looks AWESOME. I can't wait till it gets finished and I can get some pictures of it for you guys. Its very cool! :)

Check Presentations

Within the last week I have been to two different check presentations for Jen's Kids.

The first check was from Pelican Landing (a gated housing community.) They took a tour of the hospital in May and then decided they wanted to get involved. Through the amazing members of there community they were able to raise an amazing $27 860. Thanks again for all your support!

Today was the check presentation from the Paul Todd Benefit concert I blogged about a few days ago. I was completely shocked and blown away when they gave me a check for $24,681!! It was truly a great concert put on by the great Paul Todd and his wonderful charity.

You know its funny cause every time I go to an event for Jen's Kids or these check presentations everyone is always saying how great I am for what I am doing for the Children's Hospital but I don't look at it like that at all. I mean yes, I had the idea but it was my wonderful mother who really got the ball rolling in the right direction and all the wonderful people who have donated and the people who will donate that really are making the difference and making my ideas a reality. So for that I am really great full! :)

Easter Weekend

Its was a LONG weekend and I am pooped! We were busy all weekend and it finally caught up to me today. I have been tired since I woke up this morning so the only thing I did today was go to the bank and throw dinner in the Crockpot. Other than that I was a couch potato! :)

Friday me and my sister-in-law Stephanie took the kids to my friend Amy's pool and went swimming. It was a gorgeous day outside and the pool was perfect! I prefer a pool any day over the beach I HATE sand! LOL

Saturday during the day Danny did TONS of yard work and cleaned the garage (I swear he is always cleaning the garage!) and I made my mini blueberry/cherry cheesecake tarts for Easter dessert at my moms house on Sunday. Then we went to his mom and dads for dinner since his mom had to work on Sunday.

Easter Sunday we went down to Naples to my parents house and spent the day. My mom made ham and it was delicious like always! It was also my Grandma's birthday on Sunday so my mom made a little cake for her and we sang Happy Birthday. It was a really nice day. :)

Well I am very excited to tell you all that Tuesday was my first ever private yoga session!!

I have been researching for quite some time now different yoga studios in my area to find the perfect one for me and I think I found it. The lady who was my instructor is also the owner of the studio and is fabulous!

I had called last week and talked to her on the phone for a bit telling her about my situation and my O2 requirements. That combined with the fact that I am SO new to this we decided on a few private sessions at first before I go trying to be in a class with other people!

I was a little nervous at first not knowing what to expect from her but she was great and I left there feeling awesome and a little bummed that I had to wait a whole week for my next lesson (not that she is making me wait a week but private lessons aren't cheap!!) But she did give me some stuff to work on at home until I see her again and once I become more familiar with things I can do the videos I have at home with more confidence in between seeing her as well.

Other than that not much is going on. The weather outside is beautiful so I am going to my friend Amy's house Friday to lay out by the pool with her and her kiddos to hopefully get some sun...I seriously look ten million times better when I have a tan! :)

I am going to my parents house for Easter. I am making a side dish for dinner and of course dessert. So I am sure I will have some pictures to post next week!

Its almost lunch time and I am getting hungry plus I have to put dinner in the crockpot!! Have a great day everyone!
