Easter Cartoon

Posted on April 12th, 2010 by Jean

Belated Happy Easter to you! Did you have a nice holiday? We did. My parents came to visit. The last time they were here was five years ago when our youngest daughter was born. We had a fabulous three days, and it was great to see our children bond with their grandparents and vice versa.
 
My parents are very private people. Tom, not realizing this, did snap a few photos while Dad grimaced and Mom growled. Wanting to keep the peace yet share our adventures, I created this cartoon. I hope you enjoy it!

The Update Blog

Posted on February 17th, 2010 by Jean

All Nighter At The Sleep Lab: After waking with a severe headache and numbness in my upper lip, I decided to visit the The Tri-State Neurological & Sleep Disorder Center. Bloodwork was done the day of my initial appointment, and an EEG was performed the following day. Prior to my MRI and my evening at the Sleep Lab, Tri-State Respiratory phoned to say I was approved for a C-PAP machine. Now that all of the tests are complete, I have the results. I’m completely normal. I couldn’t believe it either. No C-PAP, and no apnea diagnosis. I cited my exhaustion, and my husband’s complaints of my snoring and moments of not breathing. Dr. Nayer said it falls within the normal range to stop breathing for as long as 10 seconds ten times an hour. He also said that at no time was my oxygen saturation below 91%. (Ninety percent and above are healthy levels.)
 
Dr. Nayer gave me three options: 1) remove my uvula with a laser to stop my snoring; 2) take the sleep lab test again; and/or 3) be prescribed “peppy” pills for more daytime energy. He forgot about option number 4: do nothing. As he stretched back in his office chair, he said,
“I cannot recommend you try an over the counter, herbal remedy called SnoreStop.” My bottle of SnoreStop arrived yesterday, and last night hubby and I enjoyed a peaceful night’s sleep.
 
 
Refrigerator Art: After so many positive comments on the girls’ art, I submitted two of Natalie’s drawings to Greeting Card Universe. They were approved! Here are Dancers and Love at First Sight in original and negative image.
 

 
Greeting Card Universe prints 7″ x 5″ high-quality cards. The good thing is I don’t have to invest in inventory. Plus the girls get 56 cents of every sale.
 
While we’re on the subject of updating, I thought it would be fun to post some of my earlier blogs with updated details. Would you be interested in hearing what happened after the carpenter failed to complete our entertainment center project, or what unfolded after Tom gave “Jesus” and his cross a ride to Laughlin, Nevada?
 

• Why do you think I was approved for a C-PAP only to be denied later?
• Do you have any blogs that need a follow-up story?
