Tonight I finally got up my nerve enough to actually request the information on Medical Transcription from the school that one of my hubster's co-worker's wives attended. Currently they have 11,000 positions to fill and are apparently the only ... Read more

First of all yesterday while hubster was on the roof cleaning out the gutters I decided to start whacking down some trees in the back yard. Now my back yard has a huge brush pile of small branches and pine boughs as well as about 4 dozen or so... Read more

The hubster's supervisor gave me his wife's email address so I could "pick her brain" about the medical transcription thing and I just sent her an initial contact email about this. I am hoping to get some good information from her and search th... Read more
FINALLY!!! Cautious Optimism
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      2 comments

I woke up this morning being able to speak without sounding like Donald Duck. First day in almost 3 weeks. Thankfully it didn't last more than that or I would have been forced to hurt someone out of frustration. I have a follow up appointment... Read more

Okay you are warned that this may take a few unexpected turns. I found out last night that while my niece is supposedly due on December 16, the baby is measuring at 39 weeks NOW. So this means we are on official baby watch and I hope that ... Read more
Slightly Disappointing Week
Saturday, November 26, 2011      2 comments

Well I didn't work out at ALL since Sunday (Nov. 21) until today so 5 days in a row missed because I was too sore and tired and the week before wasn't much better (I didn't make my fitness minutes or calories burned targets). That said I KNOW I... Read more

While I am still not able to speak clearly. I did manage last night to get my activation number for the gov't pharmacy coverage and I called it in to my extended benefits provider today. That said I got my Prednisone for about $4 (paid just ov... Read more

I forgot and I didn't feel like going back to edit my last blog. Today was a decent day. The hubster got us a set of tires for the truck that we will be using to teach the oldest child unit to drive for FREE. A customer of his got new tires a... Read more
Back From the Doctor
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      4 comments

With some hope that maybe I can get this thing under control. Apparently I do not have pneumonia but I do have major inflammation of my bronchial tubes and around my lungs (pleurisy) so instead of having me on a long term inhaled steroid I will... Read more
Having an Okay Weekend
Sunday, November 20, 2011      3 comments

Woke up later than normal for a Sunday and did a workout with my EA Sports on my XBox and let's just say I haven't breathed that hard or sweat that much in a very long time. I don't think I will be repeating the experience tomorrow. I thin... Read more
Hoping to Restart the Workout Regime
Saturday, November 19, 2011      6 comments

I am feeling better and my head no longer feels like it's going to explode and I only took a 1 hour nap today instead of napping for 5+ hours. I am going to try my EA Sports workout for the XBox and see how that goes tomorrow if I am not feelin... Read more
Taking a Sick Day......
Friday, November 18, 2011      4 comments

I felt so gross at work today I *knew* I should have stayed home but really thought that I could make it through. I think if I hadn't fallen asleep on my break for about 15-20 minutes I probably wouldn't have made it through the day. Toni... Read more

I DID get to see my doctor today, he put me on Biacin (I think that is the spelling) and gave me a rescue inhaler (I am a really bad asthmatic and hate using the inhalers so mine were all expired and I don't take any of the inhaled steroids as I... Read more

Monday, November 14, 2011      7 comments

Okay first off I weighed in today (normal day for weigh in) and I am up 3 POUNDS in a single week. I am REALLY hoping most of it is water retention as I have not been feeling well for the past 2 weeks now (still trying to get in to see the doct... Read more
