Hey girlie! WEll i am just staying super super busy these days. Cant believe that it is already April, but i am glad.
I planted some flowers and veggies, i enjoy doing that and just working and trying to finish these last classes for school.
My health has been great, i mean diabetes yes but no other problems and that is a blessing, truly because i had struggled with some other problems in the prior years. I hope things pan out and start looking up on your health problems. i am gonna try to upload some pics of pokey he is getting so big, 6 months now! Hope that you have a great day when you get this. Keep in touch, KYNDAL

HI Kristen, I have not been on for a while. I got your post. Good to hear from you again.
Mary is doing great. How are you??

We had a tragedy 2 weeks ago with my 14 year old son.
He had a piece of metal shot into his eye in an accident and lost his left eye. We've been trying to cope with that right now.
Take care, and hopefully we'll chat soon.!

The only thing they told me about her pigment discoloration is that it is probably autoimmune and can go along with a thyroid disorder and the only thing they can do for it is prescribe a cream. I am so sick and tired of carting her off to every doctor in the county. I am not only trying to manage her care, but homeschool all of my 5 children. I am holding off on going to the dermatologist until after her endo appointment next week.
I am curious to find out how her thyroid is doing. Last year she tested + for thyroid antibodies. I do not know exactly what this means, only that they have to keep an eye on it. I am starting to think her pigment change may be related to the thyroid.
Are you feeling OK today, Kristen??
Keep me posted.

At 8:02am on December 1, 2011, Kyndal said…

Hey there good morning !
im so sorry that you are in pain this morning :(
a thing that i have discovered with pain + my diabetes = hi blood sugars!
does it affect yours?
where to you work.. are you in school as well..
i am at work and no class today thank goodness it is a nice day break. lol
are you getting ready for christmas? i am almost finished shopping thank goodness
but i mainly just love the season.. the decorations and the time together with
friends and family.

Hi Kristen,
Oh, you dear gilr, I will be praying for U. Mary is doing well right now. There are just so many issues with her. She has to have a baby tooth pulled, she has to see the dermatologist due to her skin loosing pigment, and now she developed a small rash on her eye lid (which looks like psoriasis). She has not had any more strange pains again since the last time we spoke, but I just fear she is going to have what you have. Thanks for keeping me updated. Look to the Lord!

At 11:37am on November 29, 2011, Kyndal said…

Hey Kristen! I have been thinking about you and have been really busy and not online much but i am so glad that you sent me an update so that i would know how you have been doing and what you found out! Atleast they found out about that autonomic nervous stuff. hope that you get some meds that help ease the discomfort.
the time is flying and the holiday season is here! I have finals next wk at school so just staying swamped with that and working.Hope that you are having a good week so far. Talk to you soon girlie - KYN

Thank you Kristen. Somehow I knew you could relate. I honestly was not sure if it was appendicitis or not. I hesitated to take her yesterday. We decided that since she was able to walk and actually skip around last night that we would wait until today to see how she is. Today she says there is NO more pain except her legs hurt a little. Go figure?
Today she was a different child. I know it is not in your head. I think I have a little girl that has the same thing you do, which is why I was very interested in getting to know you when I saw your post. Thank you for your prayers and for keeping in touch!

At 9:55am on November 9, 2011, MarysMom said…

I am having some trouble with Mary today.
She is complaining of pain in her right lower abdomen (like appendicitis) along with pain going down her right leg and right upper arm.
I have no clue what it is or wether or not I should have her checked out. The weird thing is that she just had a physical yesterday and all was just fine!

At 7:42am on November 5, 2011, Kyndal said…
Well i am looking forward to probably eating way too much
on thanksgiving :) what are your plans?
I love Christmas time, decorating and shopping.
Hopefully you can get some answers before the holidays..
i imagine that would be the best thing that could happen.
Have a great weekend. Kyndal
