Pre-K Graduation

Hayden had his Pre-K graduation and it was SO cute!!

We had no idea that they would actually be wearing little caps and gowns and be called up to get their graduation diploma. They sang two songs and one had the macarena dance moves along with it. After the "ceremony" they had cake and punch for the graduates and family.

Now Hayden can't wait till August so he can go to Kindergarten.

I have to say, I think this is the prettiest bouquet of flowers I've ever received. It is BEAUTIFUL, absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!

Kelly, Bev, Amy, Cheryl and Jana...this has brightened my entire week. Thanks for being such thoughtful and kind friends.

Ok...I thought I would try to add a little humor to the past 10 days of miserable. Couldn't hurt, right??

Off and on, sometimes I get dizzy and feel my one eye twitch but usually it will go away or I think it's the beginning of a migraine and start "operation migraine prevention". Well, last week at work I got this feeling but it was much more intense. I was burning hot and so sweaty and then the darkness feeling came along. Next thing I knew I was on the floor with my old ER co-workers above me. Seems I passed out and hit my head in the process too. Oh Great!!

After being hooked up to every machine I think possible in the ER, passing out again when asked to stand plus vomiting in the CT machine I got the grand pleasure of becoming an inpatient on the 6th. floor for two days. I also go the lovely "Ruby Red Slippers Sign" posted on my door which meant I was a fall risk. So along with being a dizzy patient I now felt like a geriatric patient with the sign on my door.

I got to come home and day one a little better, next day better and on Friday...I felt a lot better. Time to enjoy the Royal Wedding!!

Saturday, with grand plans of scrapbooking and going out to eat, something started to go wrong AGAIN!! I was so dizzy again but this time burning up with a 102 fever. Sunday was a total blur of sweating, chills and dizziness.

Monday I was in with my family doctor and after being used again as a human pin cushion it was determined along with the vertigo I had a severe infection wrecking havoc with my body.

Tuesday and Wednesday came the lovely n/v/d (code for nausea, vomiting and diarrhea) I secretly wished for someone to come and put me out of my misery. I dropped my iphone behind the bed so I couldn't call or text someone to come and do it. I just hoped for some random burgler at that point.

For now I'm on FMLA till 5/16. I have to see an ENT and a physical therapist who specializes in Vertigo and balance issues.

I never really gave vertigo much thought. Years ago I saw the Alfred Hitchcock movie called "Vertigo" and it was creepy. Now that I have it...I still agree...it's creepy!!!
