Like the way these sound? Then head to Dayton’s Philharmonster, conducted by the famous Neal Gittleman on October 24, 2009 at 3:00pm. Tickets range from $10-$17, and you can order them by calling (888) 228-3630.

The best part? It’s a family haloween concert, so feel free to bring the kiddos.

It’s a Dayton tradition at the Schuster Center, so I hope to see you there!

Outside my window… It is windy!

I am thinking… That I can’t wait for payday so I reserve my next vacation. Yes, I know I just got home 😉

I am thankful for… Disney World and my wonderful in-laws. And Pizza Rolls.

From the learning rooms… M starts preschool on Friday. EEK!

From the kitchen… Teriyaki Pork Chops and Rose D beans. Made by J. ‘Cause I can’t cook.

I am wearing… Brown everything. I miss Florida.

I am creating… A blog post. Really, I am.

I am going… Broke. Disney, it’s your fault. Not that I’m complaining. 😉

I am reading… Nothing. I need to get a book!!

I am hoping… To get better, and beat C Diff once and for all.

I am hearing… Word World. I love it.

Around the house… It needs picked up! M has created a mess already.

One of my favorite things… The heat.

A few plans for the rest of the week… Heading to the doctor, so he can yell at me for all the junk I’ve eaten lately.

M. In true form.

To give you an update…

If you’re new here- welcome! If you’re one of my regulars- welcome back!
I thought I’d give you all an update on my health.
For those of you that don’t know, I have been battling C Diff since July 22, of this year. I’ve been on several medications (7-11 daily) off and on, have had a CT scan, stays in the hospital and even a colonoscopy. All at 26.
I went off the Vanco (supposedly the miracle drug that cures this nasty super bug) the Thursday before last, and as of yesterday morning, I was doing great. But things took a turn for the worse (not nearly as bad as before mind you) and the C Diff is back. I’ve got the same symptoms, just not nearly as severe (at the moment). As soon as the symptoms emerged (within moments) I was back on the Vanco. Soooo, that’s where we are for the moment. Florastor and Vanco combo. Hopefully this will be my last round, but we’ll see!
Wish me luck, and please pray for my sick colon!
