Sorry for my absence!

Well I have been dealing with some health issues for the past week. As some of you know, I have a kidney disease called Polycistic Kidney Disease. As a part of having this disease, I suffer with kidney stones. WARNING!!! There has been alot of blood in my urine and I thought that I could flush my system with water and be ok --- not the case! This past Sunday I went to the ER, because I couldn't take the pain any longer! I got a CAT Scan and they said that I had a stone in my bladder 7mm and my largest cyst was 7.3 cm. I don't think that I have past it yet. I went to the urologist and I have to come back for more tests to see what is going on.

I couldn't believe that I was in sooooooo much pain and how long it took for them to tell me what I already knew. But isn't that always the way? Anywhoo I am doing much better and not wanting to begin my routine!

They did tell me that my kidney function is normal and my creatinine is WNL. Yea!

I would like to apologize to all of the people who read the blog. I took a page from a fellow blogging mommy and wanted a more secure site. I have a lot of pictures of Miles and I didn't want them to fall into the wrong hands. I tried to invite the people I whose email I knew, please it was nothing personal.

On to other news : My Birthday is on Friday and I will be turning 35! Yup I said it ! I am really OK with it. Miles' Birthday was last Friday and had a great time! Guess what kind of cake we had? Give Up? A Rice Krispie Treat Cake made by Grandma Arlene. Yum-o! Do you remember last year I blogged about going to Family Dinner and Miles had his meltdown? Well this year he was a different kid. Talk about being a big boy! He wasn't phased or cry once! He was so grown up! He played with his cousins and adults, he also ate chicken with the best of them! It was great! Here are some pics of the event.
