Zeb and Ike always get their own posts- so I've decided that it's my turn. In honor of post 800- I'm doing one all about me.
I'm rarely in any of the pictures I post because I'm always the picture taker- so for this post I'm using a stolen picture from our cooking group last week. The theme was pastas. There was some fabulous food and even better company.
1. Project Runway starts tonight. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I love it. I am so happy. It changed networks so I thought we were going to miss this season- but then we magically got cable. I like to call it a project runway miracle.
2. I went to the doctor today because a number of things have been bothering me. When I fell the second time back in may, I hurt my elbow and it hasn't been healing properly. Luckily it's not a joint issue- or anything really internal- it's just the scar/scab. It almost looks like a blister. When the doctor saw it she immediately asked "does skin cancer run in your family?". She knew it was the result of a fall so when she asked that it shocked me- mostly because, YES skin cancer runs rampant in my family! Apparently I have a hypertrophic scar and they very very rarely turn into cancer. ahh. She poked in it with a needle- scraped at it with a scalpel- and I've got to watch it for four more weeks to see if it starts to go away or else I have to get it removed.
3. and finally - I did a little google doctoring and self diagnosed my next issue. My doctor agreed. I've got TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorder). She stuck her hands to my jaw and her jaw dropped. She even commented that it was no wonder I was having headaches and head pain. Luckily tmj can go away (sort of) and has some treatments (kind of). I've always had a popping jaw- but since Ike was born it's gotten pretty bad. Apparently it is most common in child bearing women?! I guess it's time to stop bearing children, huh? I've got a mouth guard now (which I HATE and almost always unknowingly yank out while asleep) and she gave me a prescription (that I'm still debating on whether or not to use) and some advice. Let's hope things start improving. Any advice from anyone else?
