I Am Okay!

Several friends have asked are you doing? With the underlying tone being...your poison ivy is that bad? They probably picked this up from the somber mood the blog has taken the past few weeks.

Well truth be told I had some other medical stuff going on. I had been having some odd symptoms for awhile and my Doc thought she would just do a blood panel to check things out. Last Monday they called me to come back in because my ANA levels were off the charts and I needed to have a lupus test done. Yes, they actually said the word lupus. In hindsight I wish they would have never uttered that word b/c this OCD chick went to crazytown.

My family medical history is not a pretty picture and having a cousin with lupus I was pretty grim throughout the whole process. Add in some daycare drama, some seriously terrible poison ivy, a husband job change, a lengthy debate on having more kids....and well...I've been a mess.

A mess. But if feels good to admit it. Katharine, you are a mess! I realize there are people fighting way bigger battles than some frivilous bloodwork but when its your battle it consumes you.

The good news is I'm all clear! We still need to keep an eye on things with my drama mama Kidneys but otherwise I'm fine! Phew! (Except for the fact that the poison ivy is now re-breaking out?) WTF!!

Hold the phone, husband job change? Yep, M is out on his own now and taking clients! He has been pretty busy so he hasn't had the time to even do his own site. It was a big change for our family but I am very proud of him and know that he will knock it out of the park! Why Foxrio? Fuchs = Fox and he was born in Rio!

I promise to pep up my posts soon...especially since it is almost the most wonderful time of year..........
