    I think the board ate my last post here.

    Iceobel is doing better. She is able to go up and down the stairs by herself now and seems much more stable. Monday we will get another reading on her sugars and we are hoping they have gone down.

    The good news!

    Her sugars are at 88. She is perfect!

    Her liver panel is vastly improved. One value went from 172 down to 74. It is still high and indicates Cushings but she is responding to the medicine.

    Her thyroid is still low and we are increasing the dosage. She is anemic and her cholesterol is down from 1200 to 575 but needs to come down more. This is all related to her thyroid.

    These tests were the big milestone and she responded to the medicine well.

    Our baby is doing well. :D

    The news that was bad but is now ok:

    Monday my daughter started having stabbing pain in her eyes and could barely see. Being a normal parent I took her to the ER.

    [face_frustrated]

    :mad:

    What a waste of time. They scared the ever living poodoo out of her by not telling her what they were doing with the pressure pen and she thought they were sticking a needle in her eye.

    Tuesday we went to see the ophthalmologist. He took a quick look and determined that her the lenses of her eyes were swollen and angry due to overuse of her contacts. Gave her some special eyedrops and told her to lay off to contacts for a few weeks.

    And that's the story of my life! :p

    My wife (who researches this endlessly...) says it's pretty much a toss-up and largely depends where exactly in those counties you buy. Union county will have a larger Hispanic population, and Cabarrus will be more redneck/low income.

    If I could home school my child I would but both of us would end up crazier from it. Note, crazier not crazy . . . we're already there. :p

    I like CMS. But my kid is in a full Montessori magnet. Honestly if I didn't have that option, I'd have to homeschool or go private. I don't think his learning style would work in a traditional setting.

    Depends on what you want, I don't think either Union or Cabarrus are bad, I just like having the magnet options in CMS.

    Curious as to why James is asking, although I know I'm a couple of months late on this one.

    Anyways...hi everyone. I did something I've been considering for awhile and retired my old screen name. Still me though. :p

    Got an ophthalmologist appointment next week myself. I'm guessing that he's going to confirm my suspicion that I can't see worth a fart and put me in lenses, but I've been wrong before. Sorry Christy had such a bad experience. I'm not afraid of needles but sticking one in my eye is still over the top.

    Yeah, who am I kidding, I haven't been a "girl" in years. :p I kept getting mistaken for a teenage Hayden fan. Which means people also assume that I like Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers.

    I got married the same year he was born. Bieber fever would border on pedophilia for me. :p

    Oh, it's moot point now. My ex was going to move in with me but hated CMS schools and I was the proactive of the two of us; I did all the research into stuff.

    Good to see you're still around though, Tracy!

    Heh, did you know that Eagle is living in Japan now? He had some pictures on facebook a while back of what the earthquake did to where he's living at. Thankfully he's okay.

    So, here's my quarterly check-in!

    sup y'all?



    ps: Jada, are you still living in Gaston Co. or did you and the hubby move closer to Charlotte yet?

    What's Greg doing in Japan?

    I'm still trying to keep up with how old everyone is...you late-teens folks moved into your late-20s on me. :p

    Good to see you around, James. Pop in more often than quarterly. ;) :D

    I believe he got married. We had an apartment together back in '04; after that we moved our own ways.

    I check the forums once a week or so but usually this place is kinda dead. (I blame Jada and the phatooine group on Facebook!)

    Otherwise; how's life as a mom now? :D


    ps: God forbid but I'm almost 30 now!

    Life as a mom is busy, chaotic and loads of fun.

    And almost 30? Still a young'un. I'm counting down T-minus 8 months to 40. ;)

    There's a phatooine group on Facebook?

    And Tracy, think about it.. you met me when I was 18. :p

    Oh how time flies.

    Yeah, I think I was 30. We were shopping for AOTC premiere merchandise. Good times.

    But yeah, how they fly.

    I wonder what happened to Clay! Holy crap, I ran into him a couple of years ago. I live near Rebel Base Toys and Comics right now.

    And yeah, we bought all of those action figures!
