So Far This Week
What a week it has been. I've been missing in action for several days now. This will be a shortened version of WSS.

On Saturday I came home from a 4 day trip to the hospital. I had a chain reaction of issues that put me in the ER.

It's a long story and I'll just share the basics of what happened to me. I was taking a medication for one issue and the side effects of that medication irritated my stomach and caused an ulcer to bleed. It was an ulcer that they say had already been there, and most likely bleeding very slowly and this is why I was not aware of it.

Three days after starting the medicine I passed out due to the blood loss and was rushed to the ER. I had 4 blood transfusions during my 4 day stay and had the ulcer cauterized.

I'm now recovering from blood loss anemia and doing better day by day. Gaining a little more strength each day. So that is good. But, it's going to take time to get back to normal.

I'm thanking and praising God I'm still alive as my blood numbers were nearly in the critical stage. My husband and children are also so grateful for God's mercy in this situation.



On My To-Do List
Rest, sleep, do a little here and there, rest and sleep some more. :)



Projects I'm Working On
Regaining my strength and health



Today's Weather
I'm writing this Tuesday evening and scheduling it to go out first thing in the morning. But, I can tell you the day is supposed to be lovely and warm.

What I'm Listening To
The breezes blowing through the house and my wind chime. Happy sounds of peacefulness.



Something Frugal I've Done This Week
It was an expensive week! :)



Fitness and Health for the Week
Working on getting my iron levels up, clean eating, lots of water, vitamins and rest. 


Next week, I pray, I'll have more strength and can get back to the things I love doing, such as blogging.

  8. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
