YAAA HOOOO

Well all I can say is that the Iron...helped the Iron man!!! Yippeeeee. His hemoglobin went from an 8 to and 11 and his hematocrit went from 30 to 39. He is going back to work tomorrow. We will however, follow up with the hematologist on the 9th of October. There are still a lot of unanswered questions, hopefully we will get them answered. He is feeling somewhat better. He is not 100%, but ya gotta start somewhere.
Anyway this is quick I gotta get the kids off the bus soon so I gotta run...but thank you all so very very much for your support and prayers!!!!!

New Hair.....

Ok so earlier this week we went and got the princess' hair cut and blood counts.

First the counts, it had been a month since I had her last counts done. I know, i am getting braver and braver, I think that I have finally let go and let God do the rest,or at least that is what I am hoping for. It is very hard to let go and not be paranoid all the time, but I'm trying!




Her counts:


WBC: 5.4
HGB: 12.2
platelets 30


So all in all not too bad they went down by 6 in a month and she is also fighting the sniffles.



So after the blood work we went and got her hair cut, I have to say she is still cute, but I'm not sure which way I like her, I do know that next time I want her to get it a little shorter.

Before.....


After......


I defiantly like her with the bangs...I just think I want it a little shorter next time like closer to her chin.
Have a great weekend!!!
Next up IRON MANS blood count Monday, pray for a raise in #'s!!!!

Iron Man.....

Ummm no NOT the triathlon kind either.....







But instead, this Iron Man.....
Here's what the benadryl did to him.....


Now he knows just what Marshall goes through once a month........


Here's part of the bag that he got.....this was close to the end.





He received his Iron on Friday and I still see no significant difference in him, his lips are still white and he still gets short of breath with exertion...not like him at all.

We go again on Monday for a CBC to see if the hemoglobin has moved up any...keep him in your prayers.

I'm off to the doctor today myself, I feel like crud with a the junk coughing and can't breath, you know I must feel bad if I'm going to the doctor!!!

Movie Night

The other night, the hubby and I were down to one kid...the youngest. So we decided to try and watch a movie...of course with cable and on demand the best that we could come up with was Daddy Day Camp. Well it was OK, really didn' hold my attention to much, although there were a few funny parts because even Nathan laughed. But when ther movie was over this is what I saw when I looked over at the hubby......


I guess the movie didn't hold his attention to well either.
I had to go and get his bed ready, imagine my surprise when I walked in and this is what I saw.......

here a little closer....














That's a Mercat in the foreground and a racoon in the background. Why would he think that is the way that they are suposse to sleep? They sure aren't opossums!!!

Scenes from a hurricane

Well we survived the hurricane and we are all doing fine and the house survived too. The kids are driving me crazy because they are bored, well the cable just came back on. They will return to school on Monday and I will be happy to have things return to normal, I pray that the others stay away from here, we need some cold fronts to come our way.


Here are some pictures of our house before the hurricane.....






This is the tree right in front of our house....








This is the view of the back of our house and side of our house....see the trees.....







Here's what we do after it hits.....


You get a generator.....


Lots of gas.....





You get lots and lots of extension cords...(and make sure you don't trip on them, of course you know that is from experience!!)


And for cooking we have this.........

This is where you empty your freezer and eat some of the things that are thawing out.....

Well, the next one that we have to watch out for is IKE....Ike take a hike, I want school back, I want to go back to the Gym...I'm ready for normal!!!!
