i bet shell be super excited for us! i know she will!
im so looking forward to telling her the news! i already emailed her and told her i had some exciting news to tell!
i hope we can talk about it a little bit! i like talking about nice things. it dont always have to be sad or scary stuff that we talk about.
so i cant wait to tell her! shes going to probly say how cool it is! she always thinks what we do is cool!
The nurse from my gp’s practice just called me. She had good news! My results of my smear test are back and everything is normal! Thank god! I am so relieved!
They are still going to refer me to a clinic to have my cervix looked at, since I bled after the test, and they want to make sure that nothings going on to make that happen.
I’ll be waiting a few weeks for an appointment! I dont really want to go to be looked at, but I’ll go, because its caring for my body, and I’d rather be safe than sorry.
I’m really relieved though that all is good with the smear! Thats a huge relief!
So I told my work colleagues yesterday that I was off to Colorado next summer!
they were really excited for me! And so jealous too!
My colleague trish was telling everyone about it! She made me laugh because her excitement was palpable, you’d sware it was her who was going!
When I told them I’d be traveling alone, they couldnt believe it!
Another volunteer said I am an inspiration! I told her no, I am not! I just like to be independent and not allow my disability to hold me back!
Trish said I should make a blog about my travels! I didnt tell them I already have a blog! They dont know about my struggles with MH issues.
It was lovely though to go in and be able to share my good news! And the more I shared with them the more excited I got! It was so cool and I just love the feeling of excitement that I get when I think of going next year!
I’m saving up money now for my spending money. I’ll be saving hard for the next few months! I want to have a lot so I can do things, enjoy myself, and not have to worry about how much I have or can spend!
I’ve some amazing news to share! I am so excited!
Next May I am going to america! To denver in collorado! I am going to visit my friend Sarah! I’ve known sarah since 2012, we became friends when we both joined a list for blind people with mental illness. Our friendship blossomed and from there we became best friends!
She has did and ptsd, and she is blind like i am!
I’m going to go visit her and celebrate her birthday with her!
I’ll be staying at least 2 weeks, but it could be longer we arent sure yet as we still have to firm up dates.
But later this week I am going in to book my flights!
I am on air! I’ve always wanted to meet her and now, finally its happening!
We’re going to have so so much fun together!
Our insiders will have a blast! I know Liz is looking forward to meeting her good friend Brandy in sarahs system. They will probably go mental and have lots of alcohol!
Also the kids are excited to meet their friends in sarahs system too!
Its going to be an epic trip!
I’d been thinking about it for a while, and last night I finally got to ask Sarah how she felt about me coming, since we face timed last night.
She was all for me coming! And her mom offered to pick me up at the airport and drop me there to go home again! And we’ll even go stay with her mom in the mountains for a few days too!
I told her I’ll go to the mountains as long as bears dont eat me! Lol!
Since I am 40 next year, my birthdays in april, and sarahs is in may, the trip will be in between both of our birthdays, and I thought this would be a nice birthday present to give myself when I turn the big 40!
So whose excited for me?
I think I’m going to burst with excitement!
Baby josh is coming out of hospital either tomorrow or Friday!
He’s now feeding every 3 hours. He’s only taking small amounts but he’s feeding! He’s making good steady progress! The doctors are very happy with him!
The consultant said there is no point in him being in the hospital, he doesnt need to be there! All of the test results havent come back yet from dublin, but the doctor said they were happy to let him go home, and when each result comes in, they’ll call a meeting with his parents.
We’re all so pleased that he’s making progress and can go home! He really is a little fighter!
Only time will tell how bad his hearing loss is, the hole in his heart is, and whether he can see or not. Also, his feet are turned in so there is also that to contend with but the doctors say physio may rectify it! Only time will tell if that is the case or not though!
For now he’s getting to go home to his mom and dad, brother and sister!
He’s a miracle!
It looks like all the prayers you’ve been sending to me regarding my cousin and her little boy are being answered! Thank you so, so much!
He’s doing a little better tonight. He took 35 ML of his bottle. He will have heart and lung issues, but so far he’s responding well to treatment! He’ll be in the neonatal for a while though. Tomorrow he’s having a heart scan to see how severe the heart issues might be.
My cousin is more accepting tonight of his disability. She’s heartbroken but she’s coping well. The neonatal nurse gave her a card with some phone numbers of charities that deal with downs syndrome so she has some support when she leaves the hospital.
Nobody is allowed to see the baby right now, except the parents. No one is allowed into the neonatal unit.
I’m so happy things are looking up! Its good news!
I appreciate all of the kind thoughts and prayers that you’ve all sent! They are really helping!
Well nitro is back to himself you’ll be glad to know.
He ate both of his meals yesterday and there was no vomiting. Yay.
I’m very relieved. Whatever it was, its gone now, thanks god.
He’s his normal bouncy self again today. Waiting now to be fed. Hungry for his morning meal.
