Trick or Treat

Tonight I had the privilege to go trick-or-treating with the Greins. I went with a witch, a Stitch, Captain Jack Sparrow, a rock star, and a fairy. All in all we had a lot of fun. Sorry Kendal, don't mean to steal your show if you are gonna post pics.

On the mend

Well I can see but its still quite blurry. I may be wearing the patch to work in the AM to save myself a tremendous headache. Trusting God with all the things to make it through this week. Hubby gone again to San Antonio. Seen him here and there this past week.
Leslie and Jonathan drove out to see us last night. Leslie is such a cute pregnant lady, as I knew she'd be. Leslie and I are addicted to the show Scrubs so we watched about 5 episodes last night. The boys- ahem- sorry men, talked about Stephen King and Star Wars collecting the entire evening.
Today I am hanging out at home. I was so excited to get the invite to go trick-or-treating with the Greins! Its gonna be a blast!

I can see!

After almost a week of treatment, I can finally open my eye and see. Its pretty blurry and sensitive to light (probably because of the dilation) but it looks and feels a lot better. Thanks to all who have prayed for it. Continue to pray for the ulceration to heal completely.
I got a little stir crazy yesterday but Kendal saved me by taking me by Hollywood Video so I could rent the rest of the first season of Scrubs. I really like that show-- its funny and pretty accurate as far as I can tell.
Today I am going to church with the Greins (Micheal and Elise) and will probably take it easy the rest of the day. Trevor got in at about 2 or 3 o'clock last night, and left at this morning at 6:00 for west of San Antonio. He should be back about 2 or 3 again but at least he's off tomorrow. I can't wait for Halloween to be over. I get the eye checked again tomorrow. I guess that's about it.

Greetings from the blind one

Well for those of you don't know I woke up Monday morning with excrutiating pain, extreme sensitivity to light, and my left eye swollen shut. The doctors are still unsure of what caused this eye infection (which has caused a milimeter long ulceration on my eye, I guess from whatever it is munching on my cornea). Some theories are that this is the herpes simplex virus ( which 80% of people have been exposed to and have floating around in their bloodstream), shingles, or just some combo of bacterial and viral infection of unknown origin. I am now taking a steady regimen of eye drops/ ointments all day long. Things I know for sure: I will not be able to wear contacts again, Lortab makes me nauseous, and I don't like sunlight these days, I have some pretty amazing friends who have cooked for me, tucked me in bed and have been my eyes for me the last week, and an amazing husband who has patience with me in all this. Things I am waiting on: if I can have Lasik surgery done later( depends on how well the ulceration heals), just seeing how long this will take to heal. I have already missed three days of work but I guess, luckily had some overtime scheduled this week so all I am missing is three days. Doubtful I will work tomorrow. Oh and I have also lost my cell phone charger but Kendal says she will take me to get another this afternoon. Trevor is gone til about 5 this morning. Thanks to everyone, since I know many are praying for my recovery. My God will do amazing things!

So my genius husband figured out how to rig a computer out of my laptop and his laptop. Don't ask how I don't know how....so here's the pics!
Descriptions of pics in no particular order: Precious Moments fountain show, complete with gospel singing little person (Duke Mason), the neat old house was the Grand Avenue Bed and Breakfast where we stayed in Carthage, MO, also pictures of the Precious Moments chapel.

our trip

I guess I won't have pics posted of our trip...due to technical difficulties. Trevor and I went to Missouri on Sat Oct 7 and stayed in Lawson for three days. On Tuesday afternoon, we headed to Carthage, MO to stay at Grand Ave Bed and Breakfast. It was fun and relaxing.We stayed in the Laura Ingalls Wilder room which had a (small) Jacuzzi tub/shower. We went to the square and went shopping in antique stores. We also had dinner one night at a rodeo arena/steakhouse. On Wednesday and Thursday we went to the Precious Moments chapel and fountain show, where a singing, I guess you call him a little person, sang gospel music. All in all we had a lot of fun.
This post was made possible by the Greins letting me use our computer. If anyone wants to contribute to the Taylor computer fund...let us know(: Just kidding.

Get thee to Ren Fest (or I want to be locked in a cage)

Today, Trevor and I visited Ren Fest in Kansas City, along with some family. It was pretty neat.
Having fun in Missouri with family.
