Hello there bloggernets,
As I sit here completely bored with this super bowl I thought this would be a good time to keep my faithful few followers updated on the current inflammation crisis of 2012 (title in progress).

So as some of you know I went to the rheumatologist this past Friday. He was really nice and understanding and ordered about 1 bazillion test on me, which maybe a slight exaggeration but I swear I might not have any blood left. So he order x-rays and blood work which he said will be done in a couple of weeks and to come back and we will hopefully know more. So no diagnosis as of yet but my fingers are crossed (not literally) for something not too horrible. Meanwhile he put me on a low dose of prednisone which does make the swelling much better but not completely gone.

Anyway no news, except there is a new trailer for THE HUNGER GAMES MOVIE, can I get a whoot whoot?!

Dust and Laundry the great equalizer

Hey peeps,
So as I am contemplating my next ground breaking blog post, I will write about my weekend. Well before I tell you what I did yesterday let me preface by saying prednisone has an interesting affect on me, some "side effects" may include: generalized hyperness, invincibility complex, the munchies, and hotness (the temperature).

Let me explain; first off hyperness I feel like I could run for about 100 miles and not be tired and I can't go to sleep at night but that's okay because the invincibility complex makes it feel like I can run through a wall and not feel it, munchies well lets just say I should have NEVER bought those fun sized bag of snickers yesterday, and hotness well I could be at the north pole and still be sweating.

So yesterday, still on the high from predinose I decided to clean, and when I say clean its not the wipe down counters clean its the clean the doors and the baseboards clean. I went a little insane but hey I felt like I could clean my whole apartment complex and not get tired so whats to lose. Then my fatal flaw....... I SAT DOWN. Ugh so the floors did not get done..... but there is always next week..........oh well the prednisone high was nice while it lasted :)

Long Time no chat

Well bloggernets, I know it has been over a year since I have graced you with my writing awesomeness, however I am back and hopefully I will be a little bit better this year to keep you informed of all things Megan. Since my last post I have graduated from PT school and have a big girl job as a Physical Therapist for almost a year now. First thing that I learned from working is that well, you actually have to go for like the next bazillion years with no hope of retirement with our current economy. Which brings to mind the scene from Joe vs the Volcano "another day older and deeper in debt," but I digress, anyway on a lighter note and a more thankful note I really do love being a PT just not so much the paperwork but, hey!, I have it really good compared to most so a lot to be thankful for.

So as of recently I have had this random swelling in my hands with pain etc.... which is a little scary but I am not really worried until I see a rheumatologist in February. What I really want to talk about getting my blood drawn. I know, sorry for the weak "constitutioned" but this is pretty funny, or at least in my head which is all that really counts.

Okay so with this swelling I have had THREE blood draws in about 5 weeks. So you are thinking okay whats the big deal? Well when I say the poor nephrologist (people who take blood) are close to tears by the time they get done taking my blood that would be an understatement. This brings me to a flashback of a small and very cute Megan having her blood taken for the first time, and they made me run around the building because my veins were "hiding". No lie I ran around that stupid building to make my stupid veins pop out. OK so the first time it only took 3 sticks, 4 the second time, and now a 6 yes 6 times they tried it took two nephrologists, a syringe, and two test tube bottles. Yes by the time I left I know they put my Picture up in the back with words reading IF YOU SEE THIS GIRL TAKE YOUR BREAK FOR AN HOUR! anyway long story short it took over an hour 8 small glasses of water and two nepharologists to get my blood the plus side I would have a fighting chance with a Vampire

okay later dayz peeps!
