I'm Back

I have been away from my blog (and the rest of the online world) for the past 2 months because I didn't have access to internet at home.  But we finally gave in as my husband needs it for work and the kids need it for school.  I was also going a little nuts being housebound with no cable or internet.

I am so glad to be back.

An Update
I have been doing well health wise.  Still on IV Rocephin and taking the oral doxycycline DR.  My doctor wanted me to stop the doxy and go on rifampin (my stomach cannot handle doxy and alinia together and the alinia seems to be key to my treatment).  Within 4 days of being off the doxy, I went downhill.  Fast.  I got permission to start up the doxy again.  I need to get to make the trip to the doctor again to see if I can add the rifampin to the doxy but I need to wait.

Disability
I have my disability hearing on October 18th.  It's about a 45 minute drive.  I am VERY nervous.  They will have a vocational expert testifying against me.  Interesting.....  I don't know.  I am pretty scared.  My anxiety has kicked in.  I have been denied twice and this is the last chance.  It would make a world of difference for me to be accepted.  For myself and my family.

Loss of Love
On a sad note.  A little over a week ago, I was transferring my bird from my indoor cage into his outdoor cage for outside time and a garbage truck spooked him and he flew away.  It then stormed for 3 days straight.  My husband made me a bed outside and I laid in the rain for hours that day hoping he would make an appearance.  My beloved bird never made it home....  I was devastated and mourned the loss of that precious creature.
