Guess who's Back? New CU Grab Bag & A Freebie!

I'm back ... just barely! It's been a tough couple of months for me - and some of you have written and asked where I disappeared to ... so I thought I'd give you all a little update. Well, many of you know that I hadn't been feeling well ... then I started to get worse and worse. After many rounds of doctors, I finally got to see a GI doctor - who suggested that we needed to rule out colon cancer. My g/grandmother died from it, so there was a real concern. I wasn't keeping food in me and I've lost 60 pounds in the last 2 months. Well, after suffering a colonospopy and a endoscopy it was determined that I DID NOT have cancer - however that I was suffering from severe IBS, severe lactose intolerence, and a bad case of gastritus. I was placed on some new meds - we're going to see if they do their job. Right now my "pain" is the amount of medical bills that keep popping up in my mailbox! It's really a sin what our medical costs are in this country. Okay, I won't get on THAT soapbox today!

So, I haven't really been around to much ... just trying to do what I could design wise, while trying to rest and feel better. I really want to thank those of you who emailed & messaged me - it was so super sweet of all of you to be concerned for me!

Other news? Mike and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary on Valentine's Day! Not sure what we'll be doing - gotta make I won't get violently ill if we go out to eat! lol Of course, I still haven't decided what I'm getting him ... have I mentioned before how hard it is to shop for him??

Also looks like my pc is about to die. Everything is backed up ... but I have to say, now is not the time to be spending money and I'm not quite sure how I'm going to swing this one! lol Plus, I'm really not in the mood to have to re-install everything! lol lol So, if I disappear again ... I'll be in PC drama!

Amazingly ... I finally have a new CU grab bag in my stores! I'm not sure how many more I'm going to do of these - do people still want them?

Thank you for the freebie. I'm not much into hearts, but those borders and other pieces in the GB are really nice.

Happy to hear that they were able to find out what is causing your problems. Now, the hard part for you will be following the diet to make sure you don't eat problem foods that will aggravate the conditions. Take care, enjoy your anniversary.
