Been Missing in Action~

I'm back, for the time being. It was a very busy week and I've been a bit under the weather. Feeling better, but it's going to be a long road again to recovery. You see, I have Ulcerative Colitis. I've been in remission for almost three years. But in the early summer I had a kidney infection and I had to take Cipro for it. It cleared the kidney infection, but I had a flare up in the process. So back on all sorts of meds and missed quiet a few days of work in the process. Nearly ended up in the hospital a few times, but begged not to be admitted. But I'm doing much better and on the mend. Thank goodness!

Now on a good note, in the process of trying to get well and being on a special diet, I ended up loosing 33 pounds. Still on track with the diet and hope to be able to report more by the end of the week.

I did manage to get some new things made while I was sick. I've listed a few recently and this is one of them. I named this one, "HANIA" it's from the Hopi Native American tribe meaning "spirit warrior." The Hopi Tribe live in north central Arizona. These earrings have a southwest flare to them. Hope you all enjoy them. Just click on the picture and it will take you to the listing.

Hope you all have a great week.

God Bless~

Donna - I'm hoping you'll feel better very soon. And the weight loss - well, yay for you!

Thank you Marie and Vicki.

Marie, I'm sorry to hear about yoru daughter. It is hard to live with, but once she gets a hold of it and knows what she can and cannot eat, she'll be fine. The meds will help tremendously. It just takes so much out of you when a flare up is happening. There are support groups for Crohn's. She should look into those. They are very helpful.

Vicki, thanks on the weight loss. I'm working on it. :)
