Earlier this month, I got what seemed at the time to be an annoying summer cold. Well, that cold turned to Pneumonia. Well, after nothing was really working, the Doctor decided to put me on Prednisone. I told him about the cortisone shot I had gotten a few weeks earlier and he said it would not matter. So, I took the Prednisone. A few days later, my breathing was much worse and the Dr. put me on Advair. Sounds simple enough...and inhaler should help right? Well, what he didn't tell me was that Advair has an active steroid. After 3 days of taking the Advair, I started having severe chest pain, neck pain and headaches and spent 5 hours in the ER. Turns out that my body was overdosed on corticosteroid! DUH!!!

Well, I honestly meant to try and post at least once a week...but a tragedy struck my family last week and it was the farthest thing from my mind.
To anyone that knows me well, they know that I am not that great at keeping house. It isn't that I am dirty...it is the clutter! Well, since moving last week, I am putting forth an honest effort to break some bad habits. So far, so good! And it feels great!
In less than a year, two different jobs at two different locations has been eliminated because of the economy. Because of this, I decided it was time to make a change in my career. I can not continue to live with the instability that I have had since August.
So, I decided to try and fall back on the medical experience that I had before I had kids. Well, it worked and I start my new job today at a local hospital. I will be the unit clerk for the PCU at Hilton Head Hospital.
I am VERY excited and a little nervous. A lot has changed since I did this type of work 14 years ago. The biggest change is that now everything is computerized.
I will try and keep this blog posted....
Well, the best holiday of the year will be here in just 2 days, 2 hours and 15 minutes!
See, I LOVE my birthday!!! It isn't the getting older part...it isn't even the presents part...it is just because it is a day that is about ME!
It may be juvenile...but I refuse to look at a birthday as a bad thing like a lot of people do. A birthday is a day to reflect...a day to celebrate LIFE!
I would really rather have them than to not have them! LOL

- It means that my birthday is only 9 days away. For those that may not know me very well, I LOVE my birthday! I treat it as a day to celebrate ME!
- It means that Spring is only 4 days away! Sure, Spring brings nasty pollen but it also brings the warm weather, trips to the beach, beautiful days for photography, etc.
- I can wear green without worrying if it looks good on me. Green isn't my color at all...but, I do not like getting pinched! LOL
- It is a day when people want to go out and have a good time. Everyone seems happier even if it is only an illusion created by green beer
