I’m back!! Hello? Is anybody there?!?***crickets*** Oh boy, sorry guys, but the last week has been absolute and utter chaos for us. We were released from the hospital on the Monday before Christmas and then on Tuesday with all the rain that San Diego got, our house flooded, like bad need to move out ASAP flooded because Gagers can’t be around any water that sits and may get moldy. Good times. So we found a cheap ***read free*** house to stay at thanks to the coolest friends ever, thanks C and P, so we hired a cleaning lady to clean up the new house, and suckered a couple of friends into helping us move the big stuff; and off we went to live in our new house!
2011 is going to bring HUGE changes to our family. Back when we were re-admitted to the hospital, in the beginning of December I was talking to the nurses about Gages counts, when out of the blue one of them asked me if I had ever thought of becoming a nurse.***blank stare*** WHO ME?! I stood there and as they told me, how I’d be a natural because of what we are currently going through and also because I kind of already work in the medical industry. My next response was what do they pay you to recruit nurses at this hospital? No, I can’t be a nurse, ew. I don’t have the bedside manner those nurses do, and yuck all of that bodily fluid? No thank you!
Thirty minutes later…Damn you nurses! They have super powers to make you do things you never normally do. Like decide to go back to school, to get my prerequisites to start the RN program. Since I feel like I was sucker punched into this I decided, I’d like to get chemo certified in pediatrics to help not only the kids who get sick, but to really help the parents let them know that as much as this sucks it will get easier, and the not so normal becomes normal very quickly. Oh Em Gee, what the hell have I gotten myself into? I’m scared, I have to take a math class, MATH! If once I start classes and you suddenly never hear from me again, it’s because I’ve run away to another country where you don’t need to take math classes.
If you thought this year is going to bring big changes to just myself, you are wrong my friends. The Hubs, has a couple of businesses that have really starting to take off in the last couple of months. I’m talkin’ magazine covers, calender covers and marathon wins; fun shit like that. Have I mentioned China yet? No, huh? Well the Hubs is going to China! Right after the Chinese New Year, he should be making the trip. He is going to build a factory. I wont go into what kind of factory yet, let the suspense build up a bit, make ya want more, keep coming back. You know, that sort of thing.
As for the Gagers, the next three years are pretty much set in stone, chemo, chemo and more chemo. Which I’m OK with as long as his ass stays in remission.
I hope you all had a fantastic New Years with tons of fun, food, family, friends and with all of those F words I hope you had lottsa yummy hooch! May your 2011 be filled with new adventures, new friends, health, wealth and filled with so much love it hurts***in a good way***
