Not good…

To sum up the results from the MRI it would be just that not good.I knew once the phone rang the day after the MRI and it was the hospital that I was in trouble.My cervical spine(top part of spine connecting to your head)there is a black space from the top part leading into my brain.They think it is blood or bruising caused from the trauma from the wreck.They can’t tell how much damage or how bad it really is so Tuesday morning I go in for an ever better scan on my neck and brain.They also called in stronger pills for the headaches.I have tried not to complain to much about how bad they are but I am dealing with a constant headache sometimes leading into a migraine and dizziness since the accident.I have almost went completely down for the count several times…It is scary since I am usually home with the kids by myself.I can usually feel it coming on and I have to sit down for awhile.Tristin knows how to dial 911 if something were to happen.We have stressed it several times and for being five he knows that right now mommy is really sick and if something happens to mommy how to handle it.It is alot for a five year old,but before this he knew emergency numbers anyways.I am scared.This means I have to lay in a closed in space again for 30 minutes.I don’t do good in tight places I barely made it through the last one….So that is what is going on for now physical therapy has to be stopped.This is why alot of my posts have been sporadic.I try to leave you guys comments so you know I am still around and have been posting at off times.I have a headache all the time.All the medicine does is control it from getting worse.Sometimes I catch it other times I am not so lucky.Anyways I just wanted to let you guys know what was going on.I still continue to read your blogs,read to the kiddos and read for enjoyment it is just done a little bit at a time versus plowing straight ahead for hours at a time.I will be back Monday for our regular schedule.

I love to keep mommy busy.Daddy says that she stays home and she has a easy job.So I like to keep her hopping.In the morning I get up and take my pullup off and throw it across the bathroom floor.Then I go streaking across the house.I love being naked and mommy chasing after me is really funny.So finally mommy wrestles me into my underwear.I decide I am ready for my breakfast.After deciding I am done eating my eggs instead of telling mommy I decide that it is alot more fun to have to clean the eggs up off the dining-room floor.Now I am ready for a movie…In deciding what movie to watch I pull all the movies out.Come on it is so much fun to pick a movie out when you are sitting in a pile of them.Oh no undies have been on to long time to get naked again…Look at mommy she is so funny when the veins start popping out in her neck.Guess I should leave my undies on for a little while.Now it is lunch time I found the chicken in my noodles mommy so I am going to spit it out on the table.Manners who needs manners??You are funny when your face gets a little red…I am jumping on the couch now mommy…I am pulling all my clothes out of the drawers…What do you mean you have told me a thousand times that I am to small to get on the top bunk??I still like climbing on it cause I am getting bigger..Throwing shoes out of the closet is fun…I know that I am suppose to hit the potty when I pee,but making the stream hit things in the bathroom is fun.Oh this laundry is folded?Looks like now its not hehehe…mommy is busy making her bed so I will take this opportunity to put my muddy rain boots on and track all over the nice clean white tile..hehe foot prints.Dinner was good mommy,but I like playing with it instead.Now that it is time for a snack before bed I will take the grapes and make my own fresh grape juice.I have decide I am thirsty so I will grab my cup from the fridge.Mommy is busy getting bubby ready for bed and I like how water comes out of the little container in the fridge.Look  I pull it out just right and it looks like a flood.Mommmmy that water is cold.Atleast now you can clean the fridge out.I was just helping you get a jump start since you don’t have anything else to do.Now it is bed time.Don’t worry mommy I will be up again in a few hours….

Not really,but apparently my body thinks so.Through the years I have always managed to function on very little sleep.That has come in handy especially since having kids.Tristin was always my sleeper and such an easy baby.That probably explains why I found myself pregnant with another one when he was barely  18 months.And then Braidi comes into our lives.Somebody please explain to me how a child can run,jump and everything else all day long without a nap and still wake up through the night.He makes me tired just trying to keep up.Sometimes it is two – three times per nights.All this might explain why you can sometimes find me sitting at the computer around 3 or 4 in the morning.Oh well atleast when he is a teenager he will be able to get up and take care of himself.lol

The fake bunny mommy…

That is how my conversation with my five year old started  Saturday night.We were trying to get the kiddos in bed so we could play Easter bunny.I tucked Tristin in and gave him a kiss.He looked at me and said he wanted to talk about the bunny.Oh Noooo please let him still believe do they have to grow up that fast????He was worried about the fake bunny.Fake bunny I asked??Yeah I know that the bunny at the mall is a fake one.Ok…But what happened to him when the real bunny shows up tonight?I’m not sure how he knew that the mall one was fake,but atleast he still believed that a real one still existed.So I told him that the mall bunny just did that as a job so the real one had time to get everything ready for Easter morning.And thank God he was fine with that.I don’t want him to grow up any faster than he has to.I am happy that he is still carefree and can enjoy being young.Lets face it growing up just stinks….So as long as he is still believing in things I am more than happy to keep playing Santa,and the Easter bunny.

Whew…what a week!!!

Our week started of course with me loosing the car.Then Braidi came down with the croup again.So I kept up with the breathing treatments,steamy showers,and cool mist.So on day 3 his little breathing machine decided to bite the dust.Not good since we are heading into a holiday weekend.So I got ahold of the health care store that handles his machine and ended up having to make a trip to see them to get a new one.Thank God insurance decided they would cover a new one since we have had ours for three years.Then I came back home and started cleaning and Braidi started crying he had really bad poopy coming out his underwear all over his legs and the floor.Poor kid as if croup isn’t bad enough lets add the flu.So I threw him in the tub cleaned the mess up and decided I should probably leave him in a pull up because he couldn’t make it to the potty in time.Well that would have worked out fine except pull ups don’t work the greatest when your son has it so bad it is like water.Details you want to know right?So off I sent Jason to pick up a pack of diapers because I was tired of cleaning up messes and to think before this all started I had all my laundry folded and put away.Let’s put the empathises on “had”shall we?So here I sit at 3:36 a.m. and this is the first quiet time I have had all week.i am staying up because in a half hour Braidi is do for another treatment.Oh well so far this is the first year since he has been born that we haven’t been in the hospital.So as long as I can keep the temp down,wheezing and coughing under control maybe we will survive this week after all. o h yeah ignore any and all mistakes I am very sleep deprived he he….Hey I have atleast had a couple minutes today to read everyones blogs…And I did it multitasking of course.Baby on my lap getting a breathing treatment man I am good…lol

My mom grew up on a farm.So everything she fixed when I was growing up was home made.As in you do not cheat…lol

So Monica wanted to know what hamburger gravy was.I can’t give you an exact recipe since I just watched my mom all those years.In a deep skillet brown a pound of hamburger and diced onions.Drain any grease off of it.When it is browned add flour and milk,salt,pepper,garlic and onion powder.Cook it until it is like a thick gravy.I forgot to add that when you are browning the hamburger keep chopping it into little bites.I usually just do it with the spatula.I make biscuits and mashed potatoes.I put the gravy on the potatoes and biscuits.And voila dinner is done just add your choice for a veggie….Jason swears that this was the one meal that made him realize just how lucky he was to have a wife that can cook.People that I have cooked for go nuts over this easy meal…What can I say having a momma that was a farm girl comes in handy when you grow up and have to cook on your own.I guess all those times spent in the kitchen watching her paid off…lol
