    God Bless you both, Auntie. I'm sure that has to be so incredibly hard for you both. Thinking of you - hope the migraine goes away soon.

This last Christmas was the best Christmas I’ve had since I split from my ex wife in 2009. I truly had my children with me and my first as a grandparent was everything I expected and more! My son and his fiancé also enjoyed it and want to make it a tradition to be with us on Christmas Eve. The best present I received this year! Elizabeth did wonderful at our house, church and at my sister’s place where she met Santa and did well. She’s only going to be more fun from here on. I hope everyone’s year is better than last year and I look forward to spending it by counting down with you guys, even if I don’t post very often.

    Elizabeth and her tongue! How can one not smile when she does this?

    Thank you, Sugar; he's had his challenges for the last couple of years, but the reality this time is really chomping at his EGO. Music and all things Christms helps me stay sane.

    5C9163AD-3F57-467F-9C2D-F3E76FF93E6B.jpeg Good evening MMC family and Happy New Year to you all! I caught up on the last couple of pages of the old Countdown. I'm obviously unable to respond, but know that I am praying for anyone that needs prays, thinking of anyone who needs it, and happy happy to anyone that deserves it!

    We had a great time last night! DH and I always hold all the holidays at our house, in exception for New Years Eve - my brother likes to do that. We spent all evening until about 1 am at his house, eating a ton of food, listening to music, playing games, and watching the countdown with my family. We had a splendid time and always do.

    As for the rest of the weekend, I woke up this past Friday, with what I thought was starting with an upper respiratory infection, swollen glands, and neck pain. By Saturday morning. my glands were severely swollen, and Sunday morning, if I even slightly turned my neck, I thought I would cry. I was very tired, so I took a nap and awoke and had a rash to my left upper arm, which was very itchy. My eyes were burning and my face felt very taunt. I remembered reading the side effects of the medication (well, because let's be honest, it's good to know and with being a nurse, I always want to know!), anyway, I remembered something about a rash. I looked up the side effects again of my new seizure medication and all the symptoms I was experiencing were all severe. I started myself on some Benadryl and called the on call neurologist. He told me I had to stop he medication immediately and go to the nearest ER if it became to bad. He re-started me on my old seizure medication, which seems to be helping, but --- my rash and hives are only spreading and are making me pretty miserable. I head to work tomorrow evening at 7, so if I am still this way, I am going to get a steroid shot and then get a dose pack. Included up top is a picture of where the rash started.

    Anyway, enough of all that! I hope you've all had a great day! Today was football - Penn State lost - I mean, they really blew it. So until next year, football is over in our house. I've been catching up on Christmas specials & movies on the tivo


    Again, Happy New Year!

    Hey there Xmas, good to see you here. Ironically, You were one of the ones I was just thinking about last night, while I was online here, amongst others, that have drifted off from here, like me at one time, due to life’s endless journeys and detours! Welcome back.

    Sugar, Sugar, Sugar.... I’m just plain outright speechless, about all of that what your going through and have been through already. I wish there was something I could do to help you my friend, I feel helpless here. Maybe you should just call out and stay home and rest yourself, your body and your mind. This, or well, you, may be pushing yourself a little too hard, especially when your body is already wigging out saying to you, “hold on there nelly, things ain’t right here!”

    Thank you, Xmastidings. I appreciate you caring, but I keep reminding myself, things could be worse and although yes, I would love to just call off, I just can't continue to do so, since I missed a whole week when I was just coming out of the hospital. One extra day off, really won't do much, considering I'll be off the next day again. I still have to support my family, especially since DH isn't always home and my family can't always be here to help. I'm not trying to sound mean or blunt. I hope I'm not offending you or anyone else, but unfortunately I sometimes have to keep trying too.

    I pray the rash heals and you feel better soon! It's so scary having a reaction to a medicine even as an adult. Continued prayers
