Wow, what a couple of crazy weeks it has been since I was last able to visit you here.
Life has been trying to push me down, but I say NO. N.O. to you, Life. I get back up and I go forward.
I seek answers like lost buried treasures, no matter the obstacles or the evil forces that try to knock me over.
Things that I have been doing;
1.) I have been a nurse to Miss. Pinky who came down with pneumonia and a double ear infection the day after Thanksgivings. Fevers, racking coughs, nausea (read; throw up) and a busted ear drum takes a bit of time to nurse back to health.When we finally got in to see the specialist, they took x-rays that showed a sinus infection. Some tests have been done and we will find out a bit more next week. Hopefully, we will have a plan that will help us keep her from getting such serious sicknesses so often.
2.) We have been trying to learn as much as possible about a medicine called Soliris. In most cases it has helped pnh patients fight the hemolysis. It is a life long treatment and you can never go off of it once you start which makes it a scary decision. I do not feel intelligent enough to make this decision with Mike. While he respects my opinion most of the time, this is something I am just not sure about. There are risks involved, like that of meningococcal infections. We will have to take him to the hospital at the first sign of a fever. But the greater risk is that of blood clotting, which most people who have been diagnosed with pnh die from within 5 to 10 years. This medicine will prevent that. It has to be given every 2 weeks, you absolutely cannot miss it or the kidneys will crash as the doctor explained to us. (That means no month long vacations to Belize, just 1 week and 5 day vacations)
3.) I have been learning how to trace anonymous commentor's. Did you know that you are never really anonymous but there is always a trail to follow? I thought that was cool. You can even trace someone's ip address. Once you have that, you just save everything pertinent to your harassment and hire a lawyer to harass back. That's interesting to know.
4.) I have been trying to keep up with custom orders while still creating new and exciting things for you to create with.
What do you think of these?
(black on brass with laurel green and mica powder)
(chestnut, orange and green with mica on brushed copper)
Indigo Washed Chestnut
(chestnut over textured copper, washed with indigo and more mica powder)
So Guess what? Because you read through this whole thing all the way to the end, I want you to have a chance at this set. It will be the last give-a-way of the year!
Please leave me a comment so next week I can draw a name through the random generator and send off a set of 1 Dark Forest Leaf, 8 Spice beads, and 12" of Indigo Washed Chain to you.
Now I must go and finish my margarita. There is much deep thought to commence with and I have to dust off the back of my pants.
We Get Back Up.
* Sorry this was delayed! I will be able to draw a name and ship this out on Wed. the 29th.
