It's Thursday, and I'm Alive...

At least, I think I am. It's 5:38 a.m. and I already got ready for bed, got IN bed, tried to sleep, read the bible a little, prayed, and here I am wide awake. I had to take some more sleeping medicine so hopefully it'll help soon... please? I need to get to sleep earlier than this! It's really been frustrating lately. Oh, and the 2nd part of the Daycation? Haven't had time for that in between all of this can't-sleep-until-7am business, the hubby-and-I-have-a-million-Dr.'s appointments combined, and not to mention I'm having some rectal bleeding issues again. And If I just grossed you out there, hey, it's a part of my daily life right now and it's really not pleasant, but this is my blog and I'll share about my butt if I want to! :-P haha. Man, it hurts though. If any of you moms out there have had hemorrhoids after giving birth, or just anyone has had them before, put your hands in the air, and wave 'em like you just don't care! Better yet, get a sitz bath and soak those suckers. Cuz that might actually help. Anyway,  this is kinda like hemorrhoids but about 80 times worse at the moment.

(This is from one of the amazing stores we went into on our "Daycation" in Old Town Sacramento.)

 Enough about my bum. I refuse to give it anymore attention tonight. I just need prayer that I can sleep better, at better times, and have more energy. A LOT more energy. Cuz right now I have about a 0.5 on a scale of 1-10! And I need to at least get up and do my chores! I need to exercise to maintain/lose the weight I've gained from my medicines and the side effects from them. Side note-We have been going on beautiful walks around the bike path right by our house that follows the creek, so next time we walk, I will bring my camera and maybe post some pictures!

Prayer for my hubby would be great too. He'll be getting Botox (yes, Botox!) injections for his Migraines next week and we're praying that it will give him significant relief, as he is barely able to work even 2 days a week right now. He also has a lot of different tests (blood test, sleep test, MRI, etc.) coming up, so pray that those would all go well and give accurate results. It's tough around here, but God is with us, and we do have eachother, and the laughter we can still have together carries us through day by day (and, of course, our family and friends...and our kitties. :-)

Praying for both of you! So glad the insurance covered the botox. It is supposed to be very beneficial for migraines. Hang in there!
