I am so excited!

I am so excited over all the great layouts created from my challenge! I am glad my bonus challenge and the Paper Secrets challenge are random challenges cause I would be lost if I had to choose which was best! It would be totally impossible!

I got up my week 20 layout for the SYAO2 contest! I cannot believe it has already been 20 weeks! WOW!
I will say the title is a bit off  kilter but my head was not great! but I am happy it is done! I am starting the new med twice a week tomorrow so hopefully soon the headaches will be much better although I might be a bit sleepy! lol

I think I will be getting some great photos in a day or two as the pool is finally filled and now it is just a matter of getting the chemicals right! Phew it has been a rough year, first had to replace the liner, than the pump quit and since it has been quite dry we had to rotate back and forth between our two wells alot filling it! but hopefully we will get lots of use and I will do lots of laps!

So many photos to scrap

well I saw my neurologist  yesterday and from looking at the testing done while I was in the hospital (I had insisted they call my neurologist and so part of the testing they did was ordered by her) She was not happy and said if I get that severe a headache again I need to come to her er which is a 2 plus hour drive!

but anyways she was able to diagnose me! I start a new med and it is extremely important I lose some weight (I guess those nasty headaches and the fact I could go blind are a great motivation for me)

it could have been worse and so I am going to try hard to lose the weight . the biggest problem right now is the new med has made me sleepy. 

hoping to scrap tomorrow and forget all this illness stuff. I usually have my worst headache in the morning which I am told is typical. so I plan to scrap tomorrow afternoon if all goes well.

Still have some June challenges from Paper secrets to get done!!!  I have some photos I am dying to scrap! Like these

Ups and Downs

I have been up and down as far as the headaches. Been headache free and also some times of severe headache but tomorrow I will be taking a long ride to see my neurologist at Strong Memorial and I have a good feeling she will be able to give me some answers!!! thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts.

Over the past three days I have done some scrapping off and on! So now i finally have 2 layouts finished!
Thank you again for all the prayers and good thoughts and I will plan to add more tomorrow after my visit!

could use some help!

I want to put the original post with the challenge so it stays up the top of the blog! If you know how to do that please let me know! I could probably figure it out but I have not been headache free since I got home! Right now it is only about a 2 on the pain scale so I am handling it okay! Actually going to try to scrap since I don't know what tomorrow will bring and I want to get this weeks SYAO challenge done! So far I have missed 2 of each of my grandson's baseball games and that kills me but hopefully soon I will be better. Hopefully tomorrow we will

Well here I post while laying flat post spinal tap. Lol but as of right now no headache. Praying it stays that way. Only thing I know so far is that I have more spinal fluid then I am suppose to. The normal level is below 20 and mine is 27. If they don.t find results on the spinal tap they say it will be considered staticus migrinious {okay lol) they say it meanc astste of continious migraines and will add meds to avoid it hapening again and let me go home. But only if the spinal fluid is ok. Alright forget the boring stuff... how are you doing on the challenge. Do you have a blog to share. Leave it in your comment.

some firsts for me

The first one was a ride at 7am in an ambulance, then posting on my blog from my phone and also from a hospital bed. Hoping tomorrow does not bring a first helicopter ride. My headache returned suddenly (well it never totally went away but came back to a very severe one)at 7am I was on the floor rocking and crying. Bp240/133. Anyways they are again worried about a cerbral hemmorage so doped me up all day then a mri at 6pm if that is neg then spinal tap in am. Deendingon findings and my neurologist in rochester ny even with neg findings but definite with positive findings I will br lifted to strong hosp in rochester ny. Right now the headache is there but I can deal enough to post if I don't move, lights off. Sure wish the idiots in the hall would shut up though. Wow never expected this when I posted the challenge. So sorry ladies. By the way it sure not easy 2 post from a phone.

Thanks Tallulah for the reminder!

Well it has taken me awhile today to post and Tallulah reminded me! But I have a great excuse! Yesterday I had the worse headache most of the day! I get migraines but this was like none I ever had. It would let up a little for a bit but come back with a vengence! Finally 11pm last night it was so bad and I had taken all I could of my pain meds for the migraine so I went to the ER! I was not seen for 3 and a 1/2 hours and was in tears. Now here is the joke, the doctor comes in and asks questions and said with the answer to the questions, bp 197/145 and some other symptoms he feared it was a cerebral hemorrhage! OK and I have waited 3.5 hours! So they did a cat scan which was neg. then he said the cat scan was only 95 percent accurate so he wanted to do a spinal tap! I said NO, the risks to high for a 5 percent chance, I signed against medical advise and they gave me a med in the iv, with no sucess, then a 2nd med. It took it away enough I slept . Home at 6 am, then at noon I woke with the headache still there and bad. more meds, I have slept most of the day but when awake the headache comes and goes and is at times bad. I was told that if it was there still in 8 hours to come back. Which will only mean more meds and pushing the spinal tap! I am waiting till tomorrow to call my Neurologist if it is not better and to also see what she can do if I ever get one that bad again. I really felt like attacking anyone making noise, it was the worse ever. I get botox for my migraines and they had been so much better! okay so that is my excuse but back to good things and scrapping and PRIZES! thank you to all have commented and you have won some chances and Rochelle did the challenge so she has won some extra chances! We took our grandboys to Niagara Falls last weekend! If you have never been there it is a must see! HEre is a bit of proof!!!!
Praying I am up to scrapping soon!
