Another Halloween Gone

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 1, 2012 @ 10:38pm in General Blather, Grief, Holidays, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Well, I was actually going to finally try and get back into Halloween a little this year. For so many years, it was wrapped up in traditions with our friend Rand, from carving pumpkins to decorating his house, to dressing up and handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters from his house. When he passed away […]

It’s All About the Money

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 11:43pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more. The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54 I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. […]

Hysterversary

Posted by miss m on Friday, October 5, 2012 @ 3:26pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today is my one year anniversary of my Hysterectomy. It’s almost as surreal to say that as it was last year when it was happening. In so many ways, it’s hard to believe it’s been a year already. But in just as many ways, it feels like so much longer ago. I have never been […]

Sum It Up

Posted by miss m on Thursday, October 4, 2012 @ 11:27pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Glamour magazine has been emailing me today to get some additional information and quotes. I wrote out two huge paragraphs but couldn’t help by summing it all up in one final sentence: And as a woman, I can’t imagine supporting a candidate or a party that so openly hates, represses, attacks, belittles and insults my […]

Difference A Year Can Make

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 @ 11:19am in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Exactly one year ago today, I was doing my surgery pre-op. I had my final ultrasound with my gyno, registered at the hospital, was given my surgical date and time, met with the anesthesiologist and even had my living will/medical directive notarized. I was two days away from my surgery and these were the final […]

Paid In Full

Posted by miss m on Saturday, September 29, 2012 @ 11:22am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

You might recall the I posted about a $188 bill back on September 13th. It was the leftover amount for the Radiologist when I went into the ER and was going into collection. It needed to be paid off within 30 days or it was going on my credit. Well, I’m excited to report I […]

Lost Tuesday

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 @ 4:29pm in General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Poor Love was extremely sick yesterday. I was out at the post office and the supermarket picking up dinner when he got home after work. He proceeded to vomit pretty much non-stop for the next two hours. It was awful. Finally, around 7:30pm he finished being sick and pretty much passed out in bed and […]

I am Obamacare – The Facts

Posted by miss m on Sunday, September 16, 2012 @ 8:59pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

My famous (infamous?) I am Obamacare image is going around Facebook again. Thousands of comments have been left and sadly, almost a year later, the vast majority of people are still utterly incorrect in their beliefs about what it is, who I am, and what it’s all about. They utterly and completely are working from […]

Lunar Cycle

Posted by miss m on Saturday, September 15, 2012 @ 1:08pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Two new trees are in my shop this week. One is a full moon that looks JUST like the actual moon. The other is a new take featuring a crescent moon instead of a full. There are always so many new and wonderful variations possible! Don’t forget, I also gladly take custom orders. Many more […]

Urgent $188 Goal

Posted by miss m on Thursday, September 13, 2012 @ 11:26am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Hot on the heels of paying off two bills the other day, I get a collection notice. This is the remainder of the bill from the radiologist during my initial ER visit on May 29th. I have less then 30 days to raise $188 to pay this bill off, or it goes on my credit. […]

Two Bills Paid Off

Posted by miss m on Sunday, September 9, 2012 @ 11:49am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Just made my last payment on two of my medical bills!! My Care Credit is now paid off (starting balance of $500) and my two lab bills for pre-op testing are both paid off now as well. (Starting balance of $300.) I also made a payment to my doctor so my balance is down to […]

Tilt Table Results

Posted by miss m on Friday, August 31, 2012 @ 12:49am in General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Briefly, because I need to get to bed, Love had his tilt table test. I thought it was going to be multiple movements, crazy angles, etc., but it was just them strapping him to a table then tilting it to 90 degrees to simulate standing. The idea is that people tend to lock their knees […]

Continuing Vertigo Saga

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 12:28pm in General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love was at the Neurologist on the 20th again to see if his increase in migraine meds helped. It hasn’t. So now the neuro isn’t even sure it is migraines and wants to try a few other things. First up is a tilt table test with a cardiologist. It was originally scheduled for last Thursday […]

Health Insurance

Posted by miss m on Monday, August 20, 2012 @ 12:31pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

We made a really good run at it. And it’s only through your support that I’ve been able to keep it going as long as I have. But I finally have to accept defeat and acknowledge I simply can’t pay my health insurance for August. For months, I’ve struggled to keep it going. It’s been […]

A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 @ 3:53pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

…but I’m chatty, so here’s pictures AND words. Mom’s birthday was last Wednesday the 8th, and we were going to get together at my sister’s on Saturday for a birthday party but Mom wasn’t feeling well, so we did it on Sunday instead. My sister had some technical problems with the grill (i.e. it didn’t […]
