Nothing major going on my way. I just thought I would drop in and post. I got my house clean today so I spent most of my time off the computer. I needed to do it as the girls are now on Spring break until the 14th. So I had to get ahead so I don't get behind lol

DH will be home a few days early so it seems which is nice. We might actually get to do something over the last weekend of spring break then. I don't feel comfortable trapsing around Germany alone right now. Although things are pretty quiet here now so that is a good thing.

The weather is now cold again. Figures since I packed up all my heavy winter sweaters! I jinxed myself. lol But that doesn't mean an end to allergy season though. I bought Claritin D the other day and that stuff works wonders! I am going to go back in and ask for a prescription if it keeps working this well.

I had my Internal Med appt yesterday. They will be looking into my liver and a few other things to see if that is the problem causing me to swell. I had to laugh because I get to the do the "jug test" which is a 24 hour urine sample! Last time I had to do that I was pregnant with Jessica! I had protien in my urine with her so I had to have it tested to make sure I wasn't in danger of preeclampsia. He did tell me I have a soft murmur which is what the German doctor discovered but neglected to tell me. He said it posed no danger to my health though :) I should know much more on the 22nd of April.

Well that is about all from my way. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Sheesh, Rose. How many doctors have you been to in the past month of so? Holy cow! If Tricare weren't free I'd worry that you were making my insurance premiums go up! LOL. Just a little joke.

Hee hee... the jug. That's a great thing to carry back into the hospital, isn't it? They kept making me do that stupid test while I was pregnant. I hated that stupid jug. I wrapped mine in about five plastic bags because the mere thought of it totally grossed Scott out. Hee hee, imagine his face when I told him that I had to keep it in the fridge! LMAO.

Let us know how that doctor's appt goes, o.k.?

LOL Melissa! I have actually only seen 3 doctors just several times. LOL about the jug! I remember talking to you about it when it was in your fridge heehee ;-) I don't think my fridge is big enough for the jug lmao I don't know what i am going to do! I'll have to find a way to make it fit lol

Thank GOD Tricare is free! My visit to the cardiologist was ..are you ready? 5,000 Euros! for everything the FIRST time! The Endoscopy wasn't on this one so I am sure that one was more! I couldn't imagine having to pay for this! I'd have to sub my behind off to pay for medical bills!

How are YOU?

I am glad you are getting the treatment you need. I hope they find out why you are swelling. That sounds awful! I know what you mean about insurance. We have already used over 1,000 worth of dental care this year and it hasn't cost us a dime. Thank God for good benefits.
