I had my abdominal ultrasound today. If you’ve ever had an ultrasound, you suddenly understand my title 😛 For those of you that haven’t had one, I’ll explain the title in a moment. I got there early, and very shortly after they’d opened, so I got back a bit early. I had to lie on…… Continue reading Sticky, Gooey Testing
YAY! I got my World Regional Geography midterm back on Tuesday. I got 73/80 points, which is a 91.25% 😀 I only missed 1 (of 60) of the multiple choice, but the essay questions didn't turn out as well. For our overall class grade, the midterm is worth 200 points. 91.25% of 200 is 182.5… Continue reading First Midterm Grade Back!
Dan and I went over to a friend’s house and carved pumpkins last night! My pumpkin is on the left, Dan’s is on the right. Didn’t the mouth on his pumpkin turn out cool?!
I had my World Regional Geography midterm on Thursday last week. It was pretty easy for me, but I've also been finding classwork extremely interesting and always sharing it with Dan, so it gets stuck in my head. I'm hoping I did well on it. I feel as though I got an A, because I really… Continue reading Midterms
So, as I mentioned earlier: I have another ear infection. Yes, another one. Yes, the same ear that was just operated on. Yes, the same ear that has pretty much been non-stop infected since mid-March. Yes, I’m about to rip it off and throw it out the door and make it fend for itself. Okay,…… Continue reading The Ear Saga Continues -&- Crazy Allergies -&- Functional Medication
Yes, in simply naming this post "ARGHHHHHHHH" because it's the only thing that fits. I suppose I could have put "holy duckling dam" as well, which is what I sent my friend because I'm trying to cut back on swearing. Anyway. Why the frustration? I HAVE ANOTHER EAR INFECTION!!!! I am so over even having… Continue reading ARGHHHHHHHH!!!!
I went to my gastroenterologist today. The appointment’s purpose was to follow-up on my eosinophilic esophagitis, which is actually doing a lot better on the ranitidine and on the rotation diet. I’m hoping it continues to improve as my allergens die off. We have also been working on doing a thorough clean of our house,…… Continue reading GI Appointment: New Medication, More Testing
I had my post-op on October 6th, so a while ago now. Oh wow, time flies. I’m sorry I haven’t had a chance to update those of you that have been reading all of the surgery updates, school has been extremely time consuming (more on that later). Post-Op Dr K removed all of the packing…… Continue reading October Update: Post-op, Chronics, Life
My thumb is still having issues ... Like I expected. These cramp things last for quite a while usually. For some reason, I'd never purchased a thumb brace, even though this is a fairly common problem. I have one now though! It's not beautiful, but it seems to be doing the trick. Writing is still painful, but much… Continue reading Thumb Brace
For YEARS I have had a weird thumb issue. Every now and then my thumb seems to cramp up or get tendinitis of some sort, and becomes excruciating for quite a few days. My husband is always wondering if it's my phone, but I don't think it is. I didn't have texting available when I… Continue reading The Thumb Thing
