Lots Happening….

Wow, has it really been that long since I have been out in blogland?!?  I guess you would find me more on Facebook then anything, but I have had several requests to blog, so I thought I would do just that for those of my lovely followers that miss me.  So, how are all of you?  I hope this post finds you all doing well.  I myself have been through the ringer the past couple months, ok maybe a bit longer, but I am surviving which is great news. 

It all started at the end of February.  I was experiencing some pain, discomfort, blood in my urine and every urologist that I went to told me that I kidney stones, but they weren’t big enough to cause so many problems.  So, I went in for a kidney biopsy and they found after doing a 2nd ct scan that the stones were now blocking each ureter and they admitted me to the hospital.  To make a long story short, I was admitted and have had 3 surgeries since the beginning of March.  Lots of stents, lots of pain, lots of nausea and the list goes on.  I finally have all the stents out which is wonderful, but still have more tests here and there to go through.  It has truly been a nightmare!!  I was off from work for several months, lost over 30 lbs and resigned from my job.  I went through alot with my place of employment since returning so it was best for me and my health to resign and see if I couldn’t find something else.  I just got so tired of being treated like crap and being disrespected.  I deserve much more then that so I am happy with my decision that I made.

Cameron is growing like a weed.  He is 5 now and will be going in to kindergarten in the Fall.  He is playing t-ball and he loves it.  I love it too and must admit that I am his #1 Fan.  Imagine that – right?!?  Gosh, I love that boy to pieces!!  I just wish that I could “pause” life for a little while and keep enjoying him while he is small.  He is just growing so fast and it makes me so sad.  I know it has to happen, but I still can’t be happy about it ~ right?!?

Shawn is doing great.  He has lost alot of weight as well and looks amazing.  He made me a patio out back and has been working like crazy with it.  He is so wonderful and takes such great care of me.  I love him so much and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband.  Yep, it took my one loser to be married to and lots of others that I dated, but God sent Shawn when I was not expecting it at all.  What a blessing that was for me and my life!!

Well, I thought I would share some recent pictures with all of you.  Hopefully I will have some more pictures of our home to share, but I am hoping these will hold you all over for a little bit.

Hugs and Blessings,

Lisa, sorry it's been such an ordeal with your kidneys and certainly hope you are feeling stronger every day! I also decided to finally quit my job last month and I must say hubby comments every day about what a joy I have been to be around since I quit. I finally feel like I'm discovering "me" again so I hope you enjoy our journey as well.
