From Ketchup…Mayhem Monday (On Tuesday)

Whew!! What a crazy past couple of days!

So let’s see. I finished my cleanse and lost a whopping 8 lbs.! 8 lbs.!!!!!! Crrraaaazzzeeeyyy! Now all things considered I knew that some of that had to be water weight and I’ve put back on 4 of those 8, but the POINT is that it has gotten the ball rolling for me on my epic battle with the ye ‘ole operation get healthy, attempt 4,127,899. So here I sit munching on an apple. (MMMmmm…I love apples, no for reals I do)

Anywho…in other news…We took the last of Hunter’s blood draws for his bacteriophage study last Tuesday so it’s only a matter of time before we find out more info on his long term health prognosis. (So EXCITED) Yesterday we did IVIG at home and as always he was a trooper for the nearly 6 hour infusion. Oh and he doesn’t even cry anymore when they access his port! Say whaaa…yup, the kid is so stinking brave. I’m one incredibly proud mama.

We are currently living with my parents, mostly in an effort to help us save up some money. The medical bills pretty much decimated any savings we had and the plain and simple is we want to buy a home. This was the best way. So we’ve been here since February. And it’s beginning to feel like we’ve been here since February. The hubs has basically ‘had-it’ with the whole situation and I can’t say that I blame him…BUT (always that damn “but”) he has a potentially HUGE (I mean OUT OF THIS WORLD) job opportunity that should come together in the next 2 months, which would require us to relocate, and it just doesn’t make any sense for us to move just to have to move again. Ya know? Soooo…here we are. Trying to make the best of it and hanging in there…barely!
What else…we had a fantastic Halloween and I’m going to put together THAT post for tmro. The boys were adorbs and Hunter especially enjoyed it this year which was SO FUN! (Yes caps were  necessary!)  

Today is the 6th of November (NOVEMBER people) so make sure you get your booty out there to vote. In all honesty, I’m not a huge ‘rock the vote’ person. I do believe exercising your right to vote is a freedom that lots take for granted BUT I truly believe the system is whack and this country is in a world of hurt that I don’t know that either of these clowns (because lets face it, only Obama or Romney will win) can fix. I will vote and you should too but please make sure you are well informed.

And because it’s funny…someone found our blog by searching for ‘ketchup bucket’…HA! I might need to google that one myself. ;)
