I want to start off by thanking ALL of you for your thoughtful calls, comments and happy cards. I have laid low this past month and the truth is I was simply too tired to even blog. The calls are piling up and the messages are getting UGLY...LOL.....so here is the deal.
Last year was the hardest year I have had in my life pertaining to this business. It's just hard to work when we are not feeling well. I was simply too tired to function at times. My left arm had been falling asleep for quite a while, I could not perform the normal routines that I have kept up ALL MY LIFE. I felt faint at least 5 times in a week...got the shakes and had no idea why...(Hey Trish..remember that one?) My lifestyle changed...and I put it down to that I was fat......OK...no one take offense out there....I am talking about ME!!!! I have gained weight and I simply put it down to that..until I went to the Doctors this January. This is how it went down:
Went to the doctors. I was hospitalized. They have taken more blood than anyone should ever give at one time!!!! Counting enzymes in your blood is one of the most painful process that one can go through!!!! Supposedly I have an enlarge heart and am having some heart problems. The other specialist say we can't say that for sure until the swelling of the cartilage under my ribcage and over the heart goes down. All I know is that I am tired. Really tired. Not the type of normal MOMMY tired that we mom's live with. Just extremely, got to take a nap to be able to function tired. Any how, I am on some medication now and will be heading to the cardiologist next week. That's all I know peeps.
I am so thankful for all of those of you who have called, emailed me and sent me beautiful cards, bought chicken for my family when I was in the hospital (ADY), sent me beautiful flowers (SHARON), taken care of my children (MARGIE)....You will never truly know what you mean to me ladies!!!! I know I have not responded to too many of you, but I want you to know that I truly appreciate your concern, your love and support. I took the whole month of January off. I was simply too tired and not feeling well. This break has done me a wealth of good.
I know that I am in God's hands. That is the best place to be at. So keep me in your prayers!!!!!!!! I promise to keep you all in the loop.
Again, thank you all for your love and support.
Sending you all tons of hugs, kisses and a bunch of love!
