less than 3 weeks and counting!

I know I know you all know that we are coming to the shore and well I am bringing it up again for more than the fact that I am super excited about it! I cannot believe how this summer has flown by. I've felt like we haven't done much of anything but work. We haven't been to the lake much, we haven't taken our camping trips we were hoping to and in less than a month I'll be back in school again. I can't believe it. So when I looked at the calendar the other day I noticed OMG it's 3 weeks until we go on vacation! We have been discussing sooooo many plans and are really excited. I am just hoping my sickness goes away lol, I am working on my second sinus infection in a month ugh! So while I feel like a summer has passed us by so quickly. Mostly my fault since I'm working like crazy!! I have really enjoyed spending time with the kids at job 2. I have revisited water balloon fights, three legged races, riding bikes, and going to the local pool. Oh did I mention we are taking them skating on saturday? I do enjoy that which is why I stay there even though it means I am working like crazy and I think I will continue to work there just not as much once school starts, probably a weekend thing maybe just one day so as not to over do LoL.

We also decided that we would cut back on our cable services (because really when your dvr stays almost full all the time then you don't have time to watch) and we are trying to work our way through all of our movies. Tonight's movies: Men in Black 2, Men of Honor, and if we are really adventurous Hide and Seek.

Babies, Babies everywhere

Seems like everyone has a little one on the way these days. Adam and Megan were the first ones. Our friends Chris and Tosha who just got married in Feb. literally found out Tuesday night they were expecting. Were both happy and excited for both as they go on this new found adventure. I think its a little jealousy as well not in a bad way by any means but jealousy none the less. Is that wrong??? I don't think so, I think God or whoever or whatever runs the universe is just making us wait for that right time. But I know I keep thinking it may never happen as we have a timeline with Shelly's valve possibly needing to be replaced within the next 5-6 yrs. I know what some people are thinking "hey that's a long time" it is a long time. We haven't been trying by any means but we haven't been preventing either. I thought we would have had one by now to be completely honest. But that's all right because we have already talked and if for whatever reason we aren't able to have kids or don't get it done before her next valve replacement we have already decided to adopt. And tell you the truth I think I wanna do that even if we do have a couple of kids. Just looking from the crap that Shelly tells me about her second job. There is alot of kids who really need good homes and good families to grow into. Anyways, update on my minor surgery. So I had my EGD on Wednesday and everything went very well they didn't even poke a hole in my stomach like they said could happen when I signed the waiver sorry if we do it but you can't sue cause we told you it could happen. I think after I got my sleepy time shot I do remember telling the doc to be gentle on me cause I was fragile. Funny right? Oh I also think I had a dream that I woke up in the middle of the procedure. Talking to my father he said I may have woke up because you really don't dream win your under. So that's a question I definitely want to ask but I have to make it clear that I don't care if did happen, I just think its funny. Cause I know that the doc is going to deny cause he doesn't wanna get sued or whatever. All my blood test have come clean I have no problems period. The one thing that they did find on the EGD was that I have a hernia but its not a bad one its actually a common hernia that alot of people have. The side effects of having this type of hernia is that you usually have acid reflux bad in my case its pretty common to have acid reflux. They did do a biopsy on a part of my stomach that was inflamed so well see how that turns out. I should go the wifey is about to be home soon and I still have a little bit of laundry to finish up.

EGD anyone?

Today was Kev's date with the scope :) Apparently they didn't stop at the tonsil hockey. After a good look into his esophagus, stomach, and duodenum.

The verdict: 1. An inflammed esophagus, they took a biopsy to see exactly why (infection, recent vomiting, smoking, acid reflux). 2. A Hiatal Hernia which at the moment I have no clue how big it is, but if it is small it's manageable without surgery or anything else. Until we know more about that there isn't a whole lot to worry about. It could be what is making him sick though. If it is big enough and causing him all of those symptoms he would have to have laparoscopic surgery. We're hoping for the little one were takes this medicine to prevent the reflux and watch what you eat and you'll be okay :) 3. NO ULCERS *hurray*

For the night we are just relaxing and letting Kev rest up after his exciting date :)

So I totally forgot (How? I don't know!)

Kev had his appt today with Dr. Ba (the GI doc). Well he basically said the same thing as Dr. Br about the ulcer, acid reflux and vomiting. He is going to do an Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, aka EGD (don't say you didn't learn anything today!!). Kevin is going to have this done on Wednesday morning so maybe we'll know more then. Or at his next appointment. I totally hate the waiting game... So I'm hoping for knowing more on Wednesday. We'll see from there.

To learn about an EGD check out

Movie Night(s)?

It is fairly common knowledge that Kev and I are like working on owning our own video store in our living room. (well to those that read this blog, all 3 of you?) We have decided on a huge undertaking.... rewatching them all!! :) We have been going for a couple of days now and wow we have a LONG way to go. Almost defeats the purpose of cable for a few months lol. We have decided to each VETO one movie out of all of them :) Kev used his within the first few movies MUAHAHAHA. It has been fun and I'm sure we will find new favorites all over again. So in case you were wondering we are being totally boring and drama free and watching movies :-D Oh yeah I still work both jobs so with just that free time is hard. Less than a month and we'll be on vacation!! I can't wait!!

Kevin's trip...

To see our family doctor that is. Today Kev went to see Dr. Br. (not to be confused with my ex-employer Dr. B) for the first time. He was of course going to see him about the vomiting. Which I might add was not a one time deal, not always coffee grounds but vomiting nonetheless.

His appointment was at a time were I could not tag along and let me tell you I so wanted to!! I did tell Kev to make sure he told him everything that has been going on.

They are thinking that he has a small ulcer. They did some blood work in the office and sent him home with a test to be sure he doesn't have a bleed elsewhere. He is also going to see a Gastrointestinal doctor... Dr. Ba (I have no idea why all of our docs start with B). Monday is when Kev will meet Dr. Ba. which is good because the second time they meet they are going to get a lil closer haha. Kev has to have an EGD done to determine 1. an ulcer? 2. How big? 3. Bleeding? 4. What needs to be done?

In the meantime he gave Kev some medicine for heartburn thinking/hoping that will stop the vomiting, and help the ulcer. So for now we wait for the results of the labs and procedures.
