Catch Up

Wow, it's been 10 days since my last post. Part of the reason is that I've been out of town chilling with my family in Indiana. The flight's were long but I had no problem. No crises and very minimal pain to speak of.

Another thing happening is that I've been revving up for my mom's arrival. She's coming from Nigeria to visit for a week...and it's been such a stressful thing getting my crib "Parent Worthy".

See when I'm home by myself, I have clothes lying around, papers unfiled and not everything in it's proper place. My mom is a organization queen, and I know that anything not in it's place is going to get a derisive snort from her. Other than that, I think the visit will go well.

Another thing is that I'm planning Norio's Birthday Bash this Saturday. It's kind of a weird timing because my mom is here and I'm scheduled to work that night, but the show must go on. I'll let you all know how that turns out. And of course, my second course started in school this week and the reading material alone is time consuming. I just can't wait for school to be over already!

Sickle cell wise, I've been doing great. I got 6 more bottles of Nicosan from my mom, so I"m stocked up for the rest of the year.

I hope everyone is doing well. Summer is usually my best time of the year---I don't know if it's just me or other sickle cell warriors as well, but those months are usually idyllic with very little pain. Come fall, it's a whole new ball game.

Catch up time for me, too, girl!

Hubby is fine, doing well in the warm weather, of course!

We HAVE thought of Nicosan. I've been keeping an eye on your blog and what you think of it, but truthfully, even before you started it, we were sold on it. I love the natural aspect of it and basically feel it can do no worse than the man-made, chemical drugs they keep him on when he's in pain anyway.

Glad to hear all is well...hope the visit from Mom and the party goes off without a hitch! Take care!

It's so nice of you to check in! I'm glad ur hubby is doing well. So far Nicosan has been doing okay for me...i'm waiting until after August to give my final verdict. THat is when my next crises is due.

Mom's visit was not as bad as I thought it would be, not as better either. But it's over now. Stay in touch darling!
