This past weekend has came and went in a blur for sure! My sweet youngest finally broke her fever Saturday morning! Thank you so much to all who prayed for her!
I woke up Friday not feeling well, even worse on Saturday. So I headed to the doctors office to get something to help! So I ended up spending the majority of my weekend in the bed! that's okay as long as I have shook this off by Friday! Before I start My happy Homemaker post,I want to say thank you to all of you who have helped pray for answers about my health! I was diagnosed with Lupus on Tuesday. we now know the last two periodical effusions on my heart has been caused by that! Now to find the right combination of medicine.
The cardiologist appointment went well! The present periodical effusion has shrunk some! I see him back in 6 weeks. Its nice to know so now we can learn and understand, why my health has been so out of control.
Again thank you!
Hop on over to a Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for a wonderful link up!

Although they are grown it is still my favorite past time!

I am super excited to be heading to the coast for a few days to spend time with one of my very best friends in all the world! They are chosen family ! We have watched them grow through their spiritual journey from the time it began! They are now at their first pastorate!
