but apparently not like Hallie and John at WWoW are...oh, to be young again!
My body has definitely caught up with my wild week...the Dr. was not pleased with any of my test results and my bp was through the roof. He is starting me on Lyrica to see if it will help with the fibro pain and has preached the sermon on the mount that having to take pain meds daily does not make me a drug addict(I limit myself to one Vicodin a week and do Advil the rest of the time cause I didn't want to be accused of being a drug seeker). He's rerunning all of my tests in August. And I ran Kiereney's illness by him and he agreed with everything that is being done for her. He said that viral meningitis is a tough thing to get over and the headaches are unreal. She is sleeping right now and when she's not Nurse Mom is pushing the fluids, healthy eating and making sure she's resting. I know she feels bad when she doesn't ask to go anywhere.
Names are not important, but know that I have the most phenomenal blog friends who go above and beyond friendship to make sure my life is made easier. With not working last week and the expenses of being at the hospital, not to mention the price of gas and traveling back and forth, Michael's car decided to get in on the action and needed to go into the shop yesterday. After I got back from the Dr., Roger handed me an envelope from the mail with a music card that played "Lean On Me"that had a money card in it from these wonderful blog friends. I have called them/emailed them and thanked them for their generosity although the words "thank you" seem so inadequate. God works in mysterious ways!
Michael started work yesterday for the ROTC program at SIU. This is called the Gold Bar Program and he will do it until he leaves for Ft. Sill in November. His first order of business was taking the government ROTC van to get detailed for its upcoming trip to Ft. Lewis, WA. He had never driven a vehicle outside of a family one so this was a big deal for him. He had the government credit card to pay for the detailing and couldn't get it to work so Michael, being Michael, brought the van back and proceeded to detail it himself. He now has a cadet that he went to school with under him and Michael said it was hard for the cadet to call him Sir or Lieutenant instead of Dwyer. Michael knew if the cadre heard the cadet address him incorrectly the cadet would be busted, so he took him to one side and explained that he had to address him correctly now. Michael said he felt bad for him but would have felt worse if he hadn't of taken him to the side and explained the importance before the cadre heard the cadet.
Kelli and her best friend(Erica) leave tonight for New York. On the Today Show on Friday, their favorite band from their teen years, New Kids On The Block, will be there and they wanted to be there. Who knows? I may see them on TV. Erica's husband is picking up the tab for this trip for Erica's 30th birthday. Keep them in your thoughts for traveling safety. These 2 have been friends since birth and with Erica married and having a child and Kelli not, it's been hard for their lives to mesh together over the years. Even now with them both living in the same town again, it's hard to find time to get together. I'm hoping this trip is phenomenal for them!
It's storming so I need to get off of here. I will catch up with all your blogs later. Have a blessed day!
