12 days of Christmas

Go to my website to see the 12 days of Christmas stamps and dies on sale from Dec 11 to Dec 22

Hi All

I am finally getting out of bed and in fact will be going back to work tomorrow, bummer! I still am not fully well and it will take some more time on antibiotic than I thought, I thought at the ER they said the med was for 5 days, the bottle says 7 and has 7 inside. So I will have to deal with that a little longer and the side effects. As well I am having side effects from the other 2 meds I have started but I definitely feel better and love my heart feeling so well!

On another note my sisters father in law past away last night, he was sick and they knew it was coming and he wanted to go, so it is kinda a blessing but also still sad at the same time.

So because of this we are rearranging our schedule for this weekend yet again! But it's ok, I think I will have a lot of rest time in there!

While I have been in bed today I went and found a really cute card, so enjoy a nice card also in joy of me getting better

just a little update as it is hard for me to have my head off the pillow. Sunday am I let Michael sleep till 6 even though I was up and in pain at 1:30, I had him take me to hospital because I had a very painful and tight chest, the pain more feeling like a chemical burn if you know what feels like. I also had ringing in my ears so bad it was going to drive me out of my mind so I knew I could have ear infection on top of everything else, so we went in.
When the nurse came in and saw me doubld over in the bed on my side she said soemthing about her seeing sick people but not as this sick in a while, oh great I was thinking! I look that bad, well I must have with my face all teary eyed, nose running looking like I had no color.
They did the usual, ekg, chest xray and blood work. Then said on top of the heart issue was the bad sinus infection that I knew I was dealing with but it went to my chest and ears and was causing so much pain. They gave me 2 things of iv fluid to try and releive some of the pain and I also told them I had no idea what I could take with my heart the way it is, so they gave me vicodin there and monitored me and when they thought all was ok they sent us on our way with prescription for pain pills and very strong antibiotic.
I had to be wheeled out and the nurse told Michael everything for my discarge as she knew I was not comprihending anything and when we got home I almost crawled my way back to my bed.
And thats where I have been since, with naseau from meds and dissiness and headache from ears and just feeling mostly like poo. The one time I did get up last night and went downstairs I was vomitting and went right back to bed. Tonight it seems I can lift my head off the pillow for 15 mitues before wanting to puke so I hope I am getting better.
And on top of it all I think it is the heart meds causing the burning in chest as I didn't have it all day today till I took that med. So I will see what tomorrows does does?
All for now, have to get back to bed

Even though I didn't feel well this am the dogs wanted to help dad shovel the driveway. They get so excited with fresh snow, it is so funny. Cocoa likes to roll and scratch her back hence the one pic where her feet are up in the air. Bella loves to play with the snow that dad shovels so as he shovels and throws the snow Bella is there to try and catch every flake. We laughed over the pic of her looking like she is all cinked up. Then as dad was done so were the dogs, so Bella stayed so I could get one last photo

so whats new?????
this is such a one way conversation isn't it?
Well my update for today is things are ok, I had a racing heart and beating out of my chest since yesterday afternoon and it lasted through afternoon today/ It sucks that it is lasting longer and longer, so after not getting much sleep AGAIN, since how can you when your heart feels like I just ran a mile? Anyway, this afternoon I had another attack that had me laying on the couch for a while but was ok after that, just tired out AGAIN. Michael was still here when it happened and he went right out and got a new med that the dr called in last night to slow my heart beat. So STILL being tired I laid in bed this afternoon but couldn't sleep. Now after all that I am not sure if my heart reset again after the attack today of the meds are working but I am not feeling my heart beat and it just feels normal, there is nothing to feel beating out of my chest or anything. I hoep the meds keep it that way, but a few days will tell. I am still exhausted and really need som sleep so tomorrow I plan on a me day to do whatever I feel like! So I may be in bed all day and Michael is aware of this. The dogs love being in bed so much, they are getting lots of sleep and love to keep me company, till they stink me out! And they tend to hog the bed! I need a bigger bed!
Ok, so that is all for today, I did have a good time seeing all my friends and catching up, but it was too much, which sucks, I should be able to be as usual.
Now going to bed, hoping for a full nights sleep and feeling better tomorrow, time will tell

I had my stress test today, it was not fun! man did it do my heart in, I am finally recooperated and home and trying to settle in but heart still races every now and then. I am hoping for a good nights sleep but as I have not slept well because of racing heart I am not sure how tonight will go but I am also willing to risk it and take Advil pm that doesn't do my heart good either, but I need to sleep! So it is one evil for another. I guess the price I must pay to try and sleep.
So after stress test today before even looking at results the dr said I would be on a beta blocker to try and slow heart and then I call him if things get worse, if not then after Christmas we will see if it is still happening, if it is then surgery is next for ablation. So that is all I have for now, tomorrow is the calendar camp that is still not ready, but good enough to get them going and they can all help me with their stuff. I also have a good friend coming over early in am to help me finish up. Thank goodness for friends. I wish I could say thank goodness for sleep, I so want and need some! Oh and today (the coldest day yet) we were out in the cold for work! Boy did that suck, so I am really tired from fresh air as well. And I also have to mention that with my lack of sleep and all that is going on I now have a sinus infection I am dealing with, so I really should just stay in bed this whole weekend, but will I? No of course not!

So I am hoping all of you that are reading this is having a better week and I hope for a better week for me next week. I hope meds are the life saver!

Till next time, happy stamping
in need of more ideas?

we have our tree up! A little early but if we wanted the boys to put on their ornaments we had to do it this weekend, otherwise I would have waited till next weekend. We set it up where the dining table was in the kitchen but now we have a new dining room so this is where we put the tree so we didn't have to arrange much, it worked out great, and thanks to Lisa for mentioning to do that! so see the other post of the kids doing their gringerbread stuff, that is the new dining room. Just loving all this room we have now, and yes it does look like the dogs wanted to help, or sniff it, but thank goodness they are females so they won't pee on it


Calendars!!!!! Here thay are, are you joining us now to make some? The calendars are not on the front of the frame yet, but you get a basic idea right? I love a lot of the months and can't wait to have a calendar for me too!

here is what we did Sat night, had a lot of fun at home for the night and in the background you can see that this is our new dining room!

Hi All
For those of you that don't follow on Facebook, I want to let you know that I went to the ER last ngiht by ambulance because of my heart! It was racing, I couldn't get my breathe I wanted to pass out, was out of it and had chest pain and tightness and was an irregular heart beat mixed in, so from lack of oxygen I got very cold and my nails were very dark purple, it was not good and very scary, so we called 911 and then called the sitter for Katelin and just told her that Brandy wanted her to spend the night, so she had no clue what was going on and she is spending another night there tonight, so it is kinda quiet here for me to rest. It has been hard for me to sleep with the racing heart still and pain every now and then, but I stayed in bed for most of the day, can you say BORED! The dr's in ER didn't give me anythign as I was to have a stress test on tuesday so they didn't want meds to interfer with it, so now that test is cancelled due to insurance when I follow up with my cardiologist on Monday I hoep he can give me something so this doesn't happen again next week, as all they do is seems to get worse with every episode!

So that is all that is new with me, I hope everyone is having a better week than I am!
now get back to stamping and stop checking up on me, LOL
I will try and update again if things get worse or don't change, right now as I type this I have chest pain, so on it goes, but the nitro helped me last night to get some relief but it has warn off now, that sucks!
I am just loving sharing Christmas ideas with you, can you tell?

busy weekend this will be! Tonight is fun with kids night, tomorrow is a test for me, and hopefully the kids and dad will find a tree for us, then shopping with them all for Christmas presents for each other, then Sunday will be setting up the tree with the kids so they can put up their stuff and decorated their gingerbread houses and trains. Is that enough????
