A lupus blog…

Makes me that much stronger…

Hi my loves. I don’t usually do weekend posts, but this is a special day. Twenty-six years ago today (maybe at this very moment!) I was getting wheeled into one of the operating rooms at CHOP for my last open-heart surgery. Heart surgery numero FOUR. Twenty-six years. Since I’m only 24, I’m not sure how this is even possible. Erm… Even … Continue reading

Let’s stop chasing those boys and shop some more…

Hi my loves! I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, friends, food and fun times! I can’t believe another Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone, it seems like it comes faster with each passing year. My surgery on Tuesday went well, and I have been doted on by everyone with love, coffee mugs, food, … Continue reading

To sacrifice but knowing to survive…

I can’t sleep, and all I want to do is gobble a bunch of Oreo’s. But, of course, I’m NPO for the surgery later today, and the thought of Oreo’s are making me even more cranky. In a few hours time, my body will no longer be able to make babies. There’s no chance of an “ooops!” because the roads … Continue reading

Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same…

Hi my loves. Sometime tomorrow (I still haven’t gotten my NPO/arrival time) is my lady bits burning (HTA- uterine ablation) and placement of Essure, an implanted device to prevent pregnancy. The doctor and I chose Essure because she could do it the same time as the ablation, and because it is much less invasive than a traditional tubal ligation. I … Continue reading

They read all the books, but they can’t find the answers…

I am a bookworm. Always have been. Even in college, as long as it was a subject matter I was interested in, I never minded doing any of the required readings. There’s something about the heft of a textbook that made me happy. I remember getting my syllabus in the mail about two weeks before my first semester of nursing … Continue reading

Maybe it’s hard, when it feels like you’re broken and scarred…

Happy Hump Day, Loves! I have posts that I’ve been meaning to write, but it’s been literally impossible to sit still long enough. I’m a buzzy, shaky mess in these past 2 weeks of doubling my steroids. I see McDicky again tomorrow, and I’m hopeful I can start tapering. It’s amazing how prednisone makes you feel SO good, minimal inflammation, … Continue reading

When you’re twins, the magic just never ends…

I remember 3 or 4 years ago, everyone changed their Facebook profile picture to one of their celebrity doppelgänger. I’m not sure what just triggered this memory in my brain, or why I felt the need to participate at the time (at least it was less annoying than those Bitstrips or giraffe profile pics! WTF?), but now it’s got me … Continue reading

It’s 4:30 AM on a Tuesday…

Hi my loves. Can’t sleep. I forgot how much 30mg’s of Prednisone messes with me. I’m shaky, sweaty, plumpy, bitchy, hairy, hungry, and crazy.  I could be the 7 steroid dwarfs, all rolled into one 5’2, 145lb. package. Disney should get on a new movie. I didn’t get a chance to write about my weekend yesterday, and since it was … Continue reading

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!

Hi my loves! I hope everyone had a most faboosh weekend! I know I did, and I will get to writing about it tomorrow. I said I would post the winner of my Amazon gift card and purple goodies giveaway today, and I didn’t want to leave you all hanging! And the winner is….. Drumroll please….. a Rafflecopter giveaway Georgina … Continue reading

Show me how big your brave is… and a giveaway!

T-G-I flippin F! 1. My poor Linky Cat had his fuzzy little balls removed yesterday. I was sad to see them go, but he was starting to mark his territory around the house. Not cool, I refuse to be those people whose house smells like cat. He was a brave boy like I expected, handled the anesthesia like a champ, … Continue reading
