Where am I?

I am started to get comments and emails asking where I am. Sorry, I never intended to be gone so long. I have been sick for awhile. Since August I have had almost daily stomach pain and digestive problems. I have had numerous x-rays, bloodwork, and tests to find nothing other than the pancreatic cyst that is benign and should not be a problem. Around Thanksgiving I started coughing with no other symptoms of a cold. After seven weeks I finally went to the doctor and an xray showed all the Lymph nodes in my chest are enlarged and the pleura of my lung has thickened. The diagnosis is Sarcoidosis, which can go away on it's own or something you have for a lifetime. It has all just left me not feeling well and unable to do more than basic daily things- those being questionable as I am not really cleaning or cooking too much. I have not blogged since I have not been sewing or crafting or remodeling or shopping or really anything. It would have been some very boring blog posts :) I am beginning to mend and think I may make it to the store for the weekly deals so I hope to be back into life soon. I really would like to get into the gym and try to increase my strength and feel better. Thank you for the emails I have received.

I meant to email you yesterday but after all of our "drama" I deicded to just go to bed when the opportunity arose.

How is the pulled muscle? Is the cough still become less?

We did put a humidifer in his room yesterday afternoon after the ambulance and paramedics left.

Better day today. Hope to get some snow pics up tonight.....crazy.....snow in Bama!
