She's a Rock*!

Thank you everyone for wearing your Love to Breathe necklaces for Astra. It worked!!!

She had a lobectomy yesterday, she got the right upper lobe removed. It was severely infected and had been causing her a lot of pain and problems. Removing it is going to improve her quality of life and lessen those trips to the joint. 

She did great thru surgery, was off the vent immediately and is already out of ICU! Astra you are a Rock* 

Click here to leave my lil Cys a comment on her blog. I am sure she would love and appreciate the encouraging words as she begins on the road to recovery. 

Bug Crew for Life!!!! Xo

Bustin out the Bubbly

Can I get a Hip Hip!!!!!


Today I had to blow and I was a teeny bit worried cause I am still having this stupid pain. I feel great other then this pain in my left upper chest. My doc thinks its muscular or a joint issue so I have been taking Motrin 800s and it seems to be subsiding a bit. I just wish it would go away so I can start back up with my Tracy Andersen and my pushups. Anyways back to my exciting news... so today I blew a 35 which is 1 pt up from March! Yahoo!!!! It's not the 42 I keep visualizing but I honestly think I will hit that after the next time I have IV antibiotics whenever that may be. 

But for now I am 15 months out on parole and counting! Which is a 20+ year record for me!! Life is GREAT!!!! No joint for me. I am ecstatic and am off to celebrate!!! Xo

Happy Birthday to my BIG boy!

Wow I can't believe Oscar is 5 today! Seems like just yesterday he fit in the palm of my hand. Osc is such a lil love! He loves his head to be scratched and he loves to cuddle with his momma when Lills allows it. We are headed to the Dog park today and he gets to get special bones. I am sure his grandparents have some treats in store for him too. He has been getting calls and texts and lots of Bday wishes since midnight last night! He loves his bday just like his mom :) He sends you all Pugs & Kisses and lots of snorts and licks!

His first day home... wasn't sure how to do stairs
Such a sweet boy

These were his 4 year old Bday pics
My lil Bumble bee... He gets anxiety a bit poor guy you can see it in his face here

30 years old and 1 week :)

Ok how great is 30?!?!? 

 I love it! 

I have SO much to blog about this post is just going to skim the surface. I have been waiting to get my photos from the BIG bash from the photographer so I still don't have those but maybe I'll post a couple of mine for a lil teaser :)

My Bday weekend was SO fabulous! My Bffs Ricki and Mariel flew into town Ricki from LA and Mariel from NY. We got to spend lots of quality time together including a spend the night on Sat. I made them dinner and we just talked the night away!!

The BIG bash was everything I hoped it would be!! It was like a wedding but I didn't have to share it :) It was a lil overwhelming and I wish I could of spent more time with everyone but I had to make sure I visited with everyone. I was so thankful almost everyone came there was close to 300 people there! I seriously am SO very lucky I know I always say this but I truly have the best family and friends a girl could ask for! I was SO sad when my Bday ended. My teasers are below... 
From L to R... Ricki,Mariel,Me, Michelle, & Sarah

Ricki & Mariel aka Torp and Beeph surprised me with a lil toast and performance to One singular sensation. It was a tap dance that we all learned when we were 8. They changed into matching outfits and made their cute top hats with my name on it and changed the words for me. 

After the the performance my Dad got up and said a lil toast it was very sweet and he is pretty funny too. There were some tears and lots of laughs! 

From L to R... Wendy,Tara, Me, Jenee & Alisha
My older bro and yes I am in a different dress whats a party without a costume change :)
good thing I had biker shorts on... This is me performing my infamous Billie Jean dance. Ricki and Mariel were dancing right along with me. I sure can't do it as full out as I used to ;)
Ok those are just a few.... Keep on the look out for more great pics to come and a blog about my actual day May 25th! 
Thanks again everyone for ALL the bday wishes and making the 3~0 SO VERY SPECIAL!!
