Friday is the day!!!!!

I am coming home Friday!! I will have been gone a month! I am so excited to come home!!!!

Yesterday I had my weekly blood work done. I also had a thyroid test. Hopefully we will get those results soon! Last night was a really bad push. I got so cold and shook for a couple hours and was so nauseous. My head hurt so bad. I had to be in the pitch dark because the light seemed so bright. After about 2 hours of horrible pain I took some Tylenol. I was so out of it for several hours. I finally was able to eat something around 8. At 10 I took my pain medicine because I had let the push going on for about 6 hours. It finally started to help and I got to sleep around 3.

I had a dark field today. That is where they look at my blood under the microscope. The Lyme is back out of my blood!! Praise God! My body is all messed up though because they found out that I have some virus. So they are going to check me tomorrow to see if it's gone. Tomorrow we have our last appointment with the doctor. When we are home, we will have a telephone conference every week or two.


Today I feel a lot better! I got a bag of fluids along with the regular IV. Everyday I get SGA in my IV. That is an adrenal booster. I also get the arthritis push everyday that helps with pain.

Here I am getting the push shot in my vein today



I just came out of the worst push that I have had. The push hit so fast, so I got in an extremely hot bath to try and calm the shaking and help the pain. I had to turn all the lights off because I was so sensitive to light. During the push tonight, I was shaking and couldn't breathe at all. I started hyperventilating and crying; it was so scary. The push can make it feel like your chest in closing in. Also, the virus that we found out that I have could have been in my chest and lungs causing the push to attack it and bring it out. We called the doctor immediately and told him what was going on. He said for me to breathe into a paper bag and take some Tylenol. It took me a long time to calm down. The pain all over was almost unbearable so I took another bath then took my pain medicine. I didn't let the push run for the full 6 hours this time. I just couldn't handle it. I'm finally feeling better now. Only 2 more pushes to go!


This song is beautiful and has such a great message.

Go Light Your World by Chris Tomlin

"There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings a fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home

So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

Frustrated brother, see how he's tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now your sister, she's been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame

So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

Cause We are a family whose hearts are blazing
So let's raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times

So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world

Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world"



"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
