Emergency Room Scare!

Hey Everyone!

Like I thought, I wasn’t really able to post anything yesterday. I sometimes have to cover for a co-worker when she is off work, and yesterday was one of those days. She works a funky shift, and it is hard to get anything going. On top of that like the title states we had a bit of an issue the night before, that shift. Everything is, seemingly, fine now but meh.

Lets start Monday morning. I signed up to give blood at work, like I always do. The machine for double red blood cells was free, and I asked if I was able to give more. They checked everything over and cleared me to give double reds. They basically take more of your red blood cells and in the process put your plasma and saline back in periodically. I have done this before and it has been no big deal. Towards the end I felt a little light headed but nothing out of the ordinary after losing two pints of blood haha. After I sat down and have a juice, brownie, and pretzels to keep my energy up. I returned to work like normal and ran through the rest of my day. Later that evening I ran to Lowes with my brother and got a chest freezer and groceries with my wife. I kept the “heavy lifting” to a minimum, but maybe I still over did it. It was early to bed since I had to get up much earlier, but when I got off the couch I got some weird blurry vision and my head felt really weird. I went up stairs and started having a panic attack. So that surely didn’t help anything. I told my wife to pack up the baby and take me to the ER. I was feeling better for the most part but wanted to check it out anyway. I forgot to mention when they put in the needle to take my blood it wasn’t going in my vein easy so they have to mess with it. The doctor said that the red on my arm could be a blown vein or hematoma.


Either way I knew that it would bruise, I just didn’t think this was normal. I also had a weird fluid like pain in my ears when I moved my head, as well as a funny feeling in the back of my sinuses. The ER doctor and my aunt, who is in the medical field both thought it had nothing to do with giving blood, but I can assure you that none of this happened until right after I did. I slept that night and woke fine in the morning. Worked my early shift and went home. Once home I started getting a headache and that intense ear pain again. I still haven’t got any answers! I slept fine again and feel great yet again. I’m curious to see how tonight will go. Am I going to have this crap happen again? Who knows.

So long story short I didn’t have anything to post yesterday haha.

Here at work I did get my cork board and had it hung up!


I can now see all my stuff without having to find a file somewhere else. Yippie! I’m gearing up to work on a few more PCs that just came in the mail, and get ready to cover my other co-worker since he will be off for about a damn month in like two weeks. He is going on a church mission to 11 countries in Europe! How fancy is that? I wish I wasn’t afraid to fly because I would love to go to Europe.

Anyway that is about all from me today. I’ll keep you posted on anything new and exciting. Oh, I also finished the 5th season of “Orange is the New Black.” I won’t say anything because I know most people still haven’t finished it, but it is pretty good!

I’ll be back again tomorrow. I hope to see you then! 😀 😀


What Tornado?

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday was more exciting than it should have been. Through my eyes in a good way lol. I got home and nothing special was really going on. I fed the pets, got the mail and saw a few packages on the porch. I brought them in and left them for a bit. I let my dog out and was checking out our garden, and saw some nice things.


Don’t mind the weird newspaper on the ground. I’m really not sure where that came from. I have found bits of the same paper all over for seemingly no reason. Anyway the pop of color has us excited. The fence is a red the grass is a vibrant green and the flowers have all been shades of yellow.

After I came back inside I opened the packages. The one was a few sets of sheets for the crib that we had been waiting for. The other was my diaper bag! I’m super pumped about it. It is a “Diaper Dude”  messenger bag.


Inside that first flap is a list of things that are must haves! Check it out:


I now have everything in that bag except the snacks and utensils. Well that and the baby who wouldn’t go in the bag in the first place, but you can’t forget him either haha. It has the three pockets on the front, as well as a side pocket for a bottle. It has a main section with netted pockets, and one zipper pocket. The back side has another compartment with netted pockets, as well as a padded back with a pocket for the changing pad. There is also a zipper pocket on the inside of that orange flap. The color and style of the bag are right up my alley and I love it.

We were excited to get all the things for our separate bags. We were, however missing some of those things and I ran out to get them. I hit up the local Wal-Mart for hand sanitizer and first aid kits. While I was there I made the random decision to get an end table for the baby’s room. Just my nature haha. Buuuut, as I was checking out I got the same weather alert that we all got. It was a tornado warning! I was getting texts from my wife telling me to hurry home. I finished my transaction and headed home.

This was my site driving home. I know, I know, don’t have your phone out and drive and what not. My bad, but still. Look at that sky, it only got worse from there.


When I got home it was just starting to rain. the wind hadn’t really picked up, but we headed to the basement. We had our phones, flashlights, candles, and our animals. We could see the lighting and hear the thunder rolling through our valley. Our phones were acting solely as weather radars, and we watched as the storm came and went. Thankfully it missed us and didn’t get much worse for most people. Everyone was safe and only tree damage for the most part.

After we got back upstairs I was excited to set up the end table for the baby’s room. It turned out great and took the rest of the night. It is a perfect fit and looks good with teh lamp.


It even gives us some more storage! The only thing we would really still like to have in that room is a nice rug. right now it is just some what worn hardwood. But now with our bags packed, and the room mostly complete we are as ready as we can be to have this baby! 😀

I just got word that we might be going to put the floor on our cabin, right after work. Like I’ve said before we are trying to have it at least be done enough to house people for a night by the 20th of May, so we have to hurry up haha. Our Saturday will be spent back in my wife’s hometown. We are going to her baby brother’s first birthday party and his baptism. It will be most of the day, but will be fun.

My soon to be sister in-law is also having her bridal shower that same day, so we will have to get with her either tonight or some other time this weekend to hang out and give her a nice gift. So it looks like it will be another super fast weekend for us!

I hope you have enjoyed this post, as much as I enjoyed writing it. I hope to see you all back again come Monday! Don’t forget to like, comment, and share if you feel so inclined. It is always appreciated.

I’ll see you Monday! 😀 😀
