You Know You're A Bad Blogger When....

You forget to post something on your three year blogiversary! LOL. Yes, Jo forgot to post and celebrate Life With Heathens being three years old. Wow, so much for fooling myself into thinking that I don't suck. *laugh*

As always, things here are never boring. Since my last post Monkeyboy got a bug bite on his bottom lip and we have had a wonderful run in with MRSA, the results came back on Big B's 24hr urine showing that adrenal tumors are most likely beginning, and just all kinds of fun. haha

This was our first time dealing with MRSA so it was a little scary especially since no one bothered to tell us (doctor and then urgent care who had taken a culture) what the infection was until it was pretty much too late for the rest of us. Considering that I don't like the idea of ANY of my kids being sick plus I have a weakened immune system.... well that didn't sit too well with me AT ALL. Saying I was beyond pissed would be an understatement. Thankfully though no one else got the infection and Monkeyboy is doing much much better. To be honest, I didn't know a whole lot about staph infections before this month but boy do I now! Nasty stuff and I recommend everyone to read up on it because you just never know when it could show up.

As for Big B, we had elevated levels in his test results and had to see another endocrinologist (because his ped endo felt he was old enough to go to an adult endo) to decide what to do next. I felt really comfortable with this endo considering that he is MY endo's husband! After going over the results and talking to Mr Dr Endo the plan is to test Big B every three months to see how the results flucuate/rise. If it looks like things are going slowly then we will wait it out for a bit (because pheochromocytomas usually grow fairly slowly) but if it looks like tumors are forming quickly then the search for a topnotch adrenal surgeon will begin. There is no way in hell I'm letting any of my kids end up all messed up like I am. I love them too much.

So please keep my kiddo in your thoughts for awhile. I'd really rather things not come to him needing surgery. I think they've dealt with enough of this MEN2a bullshit already.

I am happy to report that I did not almost die this month. Amazing I know!! *smiling* Actually, now that I know what to do I see adrenal crisis being a very rare thing for me and I'm very happy about that. Now all I just need to make it through the upcoming appointment with the thyroid/breast surgeon on March 31st and things will be all good. To be honest, I'm scared about that one but really really hoping the lump in my breast is nothing and we can go back to life as usual.

I'd love to say that I've been too busy to blog lately but the truth is that I've just been too damn lazy. I get tired of posting about the downer crap that goes on here healthwise and it seems my writing muse is either on a very long vacation or that bitch done quit! HA. I would love to say that I will do better now but we've all seen how that goes when I say that. *wink*

Thank you to everyone for all the comments on my birthday post. They were really nice to read and I'm trying to catch up on people's blogs. If you notice I've visited you but didn't comment don't worry, I'll be back again and won't be so rude a second time.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and don't gorge yourself on too many chocolate bunnies!

Girl, be careful!! MRSA can look like it's gone completley and then just flair up again when you least expect it! I should know, that was what my surgery was for last fall and what I just fought off again last month! Plus Kie had a spot on her leg off and on all year last year, until we finally got someone to prescribe sulfur. Out of everything that girl took last year, that was the only thing that worked! Please keep a close eye on monkey boy! I love you guys!!

Don't think this means I'm getting you a blogaversary present.

Honestly, I'm quite glad you "didn't almost die" this month. Best news I've heard in a while. :)

Nice to see everyone will turn out ok after all. :) And I'm not sure I could ever gorge on too much chocolate right now. Although in an attempt to try and remember I shouldn't do just that I did only have a taste of some brownies I ate over the weekend for the kids.

Thanks for stopping by my blog too. :)
