Raining Inside My House!

OMG!! I can't believe this... when it rains, it absolutely pours!! Well, it never fails, when I get really sick, it seems like Niko has sympathy sickness too. Then that only leaves Pablo and Sasha to run the house, and then of course not much gets done, but I do get pampered. So, I'm still dizzy, still got the illness thing going on, and amidst all of this, I forget to take Niko to get his vaccinations yesterday so his Rabies shots would be good for 3 years. Well, dang it; I missed it by one day, so I now have to take him for an update one year from today! They couldn't give him the 3 yr. one because I was a day late... We go, he does fine, we get home, I'm not feeling well, although several professional nurses, caretakers, police officers, and close friends have all come to the conclusion that what is wrong with me has something to do with Hypoglycemia. So, I've got appointments Thursday (tomorrow), Tuesday, Wednesday and the following week... Hopefully and with many prayers, the docs can get a handle on what is going on with me. The constant sleeping, the horrible body stiffness, nausea (and clock work vomiting), shaking and everything else has got to stop! I am starting to become consumed by the recent symptoms and illness! Please send me good vibes and prayers if you can...

Anyways, back to Niko, we get home, I was just about to lay down, and after about an hour, I'm looking for him... No where to be found was he!! Then I glanced at the end of the hallway, and he's sleeping against the wall. There's no doggie bed/pillow there!! I went to pet him, and he's got bumps all up and down his back!! He had a rash... or whelps or something! So I call the vet, I explain to them, and they say rush him back. He was having an allergic reaction to the Rabies vaccine, so they had to give him a diphenhydramine shot and observe him... for 3 hours, so I'm sitting there waiting; then the shakes and the dizziness start! Ugh!! So, I ran to Starbucks and got a "Tall Skinny Mocha Cinnamon Dulce Latte" and I'm not a coffee drinker! Oh but that was so delish!! :)

So, now we're at home, and we just watched the "Shrek Christmas Special" and it was too cute. I'm extremely tired, but due to the time difference in Sweden, I'm trying to stay up to talk to Marie! My sleep schedule and frequent trips to the hospital has gotten me so off track, I can't even remember the last time I chatted with my Twin Swedish Sister!!

Well, I'm loading some photos just for the fun of it, because I haven't had much time to do anything else. Not only that, these needed to be shared! Hugs to all! Enjoy the photos!

BTW, I've got some great news amidst all of this, and I'll have some freebies on my blog come Friday!! So keep a look out!! :) This will be a HUGE announcement!

I hope you and poor Niko feel better soon!

I know what you are going through with the shakes and dizziness, for a while this used to happen to me in the oddest places, especially when it was around THAT time. My doc thought it was hypoglycemia, too - but the blood test didn't show anything. He said I may be borderline. I'm saying all this to say that a professor of mine told me to drink orange juice whenever I had an episode and it works like magic. This is supposed to be one of the fastest (and healthiest) ways to straighten out the blood sugar. If I have an event or something and I know I'm going to be out and about for long periods of time, I make sure to drink a glass of OJ in the morning, thankfully I haven't had an episode in a long time. Hope this helps! Take care!
