Good evening, I'm sorry I haven't wrote much a lot has taken place since my last post.
First the big news(for me)! The weekend mac got home, he got me a new car! a 2013 Hyundai Elantra.
Well, Mac took his post deployment leave, he also had it extend (this is where I will explain a past post). His leave started off rough, he fought a cold so we relaxed at home until the beginning of December. December 2nd, marked the point where his leave was extended. During his extended leave we spent time in Florida. We enjoyed our time down there but there was one main reason we were there. & here is why:
Back in April I posted a post titled one month one week. It talked about how something had happened in the family and I'd rather not post details. Well, back in April, his grandfather past away. He wasn't allowed to come home until later, which then we have to pay to send him back (WAY TO MUCH MONEY). We thought about it. But his grandfather was cremated. On December 7, 2013 we laid his ashes to rest at the South Florida National Cemetery. I'm really happy mac was able to get closure. It was nice to meet his grandmother :). I will love to go back and stay some more (I'll post pictures soon).
On another note: my health. I went back to the Rheumatologist. He told me just about all my blood word was fine, expect something with red blood cells (nothing major). But he then went on to say, "well, we know something is wrong but we don't know what. I think you should go to john Hopkins center of internal medicine. They are the best and can figure out what exactly is going on." Ok well, I listened but that won't happen unless tricare pays for it. So this begins my research. (John Hopkins hospital is in Baltimore). He told me this at my appointment on the 9th.
After the appointment, I got a little down. I was thankful Mac had arranged for me to pick up my early Christmas present. That afternoon I got to pick up our new addition to the family! Skittles, our new kitten :). She is multi-colored and about 10 weeks old. pictures to come soon.
Well, I think I have filled you in. Christmas is coming soon, so I am trying to make sure I get everything covered before it's way too late. It feels great to be back and trying to get in the groove of things again.
