A Quick Update

Hello again!

I haven't posted in a while due to several reasons. Since I am sitting here resting, I thought I would give you a quick update.

Health wise:

  • I had an upper respiratory infection in June. While the antibiotics cleared the URI up quickly, trying to get my insurance to pay the doctor has been a headache. It is in appeals right now. I may go into detail in a later post.
  • About 3 weeks ago my left leg became very red, itchy, and burned. I have had cellulitis in the past, but this was not the same. In the end, I discovered I have folliculitis. I am currently on pill antibiotics plus an antibiotic ointment. 
  • Since I have this infection, my doctors have advised me to postpone my Cosentyx injection until it clears. The longer I am off of it, the worse I am feeling. I've had to begin using my cane again because my back pain has been severe.
Family wise:
  • My daughter and son in law, who are both teachers, moved to new classrooms. We helped clean, paint, and decorate.
  • My oldest son passed the National Registry EMT test in July. We are very proud of him.
  • My youngest son began high school this past week. He has grown up way too fast!
In closing, I hope your summer has been healthy and fun. I will try to post more regularly.

Take care friends!
