God gave me you for the ups and downs. God gave me you for the days of doubt. And for when I think I've lost my way, there are no words here left to say, it's true, God gave me you.

I am alive!

Whew! It has been a crazy last couple of months for this work-a-holic! We had a huge project that little ole' me somehow became in charge of and was working literally 70 + hours a week! Sunday was the last evening to work overtime so now I'm back to having a life! Thank the Good LORD! I have so much to catch up on! My little sister graduated back in May, and now she's in college making me feel super old! My other little sissy had a birthday. Oh and there was July 4th, Bandit's ear problems, and most recently my asthma attacks! Yikes! However, I think I've proven to my bossman just how loyal and committed I am to my position. Saturday night I went to the local doc-in-a-box because I was having an attack come on but these have become the norm for me lately. I know, not so good. Anyway, after two steroid shots, 3 breathing treatments, and 60 mg of oral steroids, my oxygen level would not rise above 88. I knew I had one last day on my project for work and I just couldn't bare with the idea of leaving my boss empty handed in front of a judge after all the work we had put into it! So I sent him this text:
(It had to be documented that I was advised several times pretty harshly to go to the ER and be pumped full of steroids through an IV)

I also included in the text something along the lines of "I literally put my life on the line for my job :)"

Steroids have been doing their job and I'm on the way to feeling better. Thankfully no hospital visits have had to take place either! Oxygen is back up to 92 so there has been some improvement. Boo and I did a lot of research last night on home remedies for asthmatics. Who would have thought, daily massages can be extremely helpful at opening your airways and to suppress swelling? So we jumped on that last night! ha

Promise to catch up so soon!


  1. So good to hear from you! Wow, sounds like you have had some troubles. I hope you get to feeling 100% soon! :)

    1. Thanks girl! So far so good! I just have to get better about being consistent with my asthma instead of worrying about it when it gets so bad! Ha Hope your weekend was awesome!

    2. My weekend was good, yes. I actually went somewhere and did something. I definitely need to get out more often. I'm not getting any younger!! lol


Leave me some lovin'...
