Behold, the power of fluids

I am so sorry that there hasn't been any updates. I have been sick with a stomach virus. It started out with me being very nauseuous on Tuesday. We won't talk about Wednesday. And Thursday, my co-worker D had to take me to the emergency room because nothing was staying down or in me. It is amazing how an iv and nauseou medicine can perk a person. Throughout this whole illness, I was trying to do interviews and write all of the best of 2009 stuff and try to get my car fix. It was too much. So after my er visit, I declared Thursday as a sick day.

I spent Friday playing catch up on the interviews and all day Saturday writing stories. I got it done. I have went from drinking chicken broth and Powerade to a grilled chicken breast and garden peas. So I am finally on the mend. And I think I found someone who can fix my car so things are improving here in RR.

Last night, I watched Dirty Dancing for the first time. It was a great movie. I have seen pretty much all of Patrick Swayze's movies. I really enjoyed it. He has some pretty good movies and will be missed.

1. IV fluids are amazing
2. My co-workers have really looked out for me.
3. Emmy night--I do love some pretty dresses.


  1. aww.. hope you fell 100% well soon. (hugs)

  2. Feel better! I got really sick like that once. It's miserable! I'm glad you got an IV... Take it easy!
    I can't believe you hadn't seen Dirty Dancing before! What a great movie!

  3. I took my wife to the ER a couple of months ago because she had been nauseous for several weeks and got dehydrated. She perked up, too. But I was concerned about the IV because it contains dextrose, which (in the USA) is derived from corn and which is used in Prolotherapy to induce inflammation.

    Anyway, glad you're better and, hopefully, un-inflammed. :)

Stopping ED from gaining

One of the hardest things I had to ever do was to explain my ED to my 11-year-old son. His father had talked to him about it, which I have an issue with  because it is my story and not his. But I have tried to move beyond that.

Anyway, a few weeks I talked to him about it and explained it as best I could. I told him how he is my inspiration to stay in recovery. I know he needs his mom to be healthy to help handle growing up.
One thing I told him was that my relationship with food is not like his relationship. And there will always be a struggle for me. I take it one meal at a time.
I kept all of this in mind when I went to the doctor yesterday to ask for help. In the past three months, my appetite has disappeared. I eat because I don’t want to pass out or to be hospitalized. It hasn’t been easy. I could have let ED win when I realized what was happening. I have only lost 11 pounds. To some this is not much weight but to me it is.
The old me would have been happy about it. The recovering…

Spending time with my son

Memorial Day is always special for me as a reporter and a person. It is a chance to recognize who gave their life so I and others can have the freedom we have. 
Normally, I work and get to take Memorial Day holiday on another day. This year, I got a double bonus. 

I got to spend the long weekend with my son. Things some how worked that my son’s aunt met me halfway and JJ was able to spend three days in Pickle Land with me. He had a chance to see me working and spend quality time together.

JJ is now 11. He is squarely in the pre-teen world. His voice is changing along with other things. My baby is growing up and it scares me. He got to see my new teeth and loved them. He said it was nice to see me so happy. 
We had a chance to talk and just spend some time together. And in two weeks, he returns for a two week involving my week long vacation and a bunch of day camps. It has been a good few days.
The other part is my Memorial Day weekend is this weekend. I'm going to the Lake to hang with…

Adventures at Librari-Con with Samurai Batman

Recently, JJ and I made our second journey to the 11th annual Librari-Con at the Cumberland County Public Library in Fayetteville.  This is an annual anime/graphic novel/sci-fi mini convention that featured anime viewing, panels forums, Artist Alley, Cosplay Runway and more.
What made this event super awesome was the fact that the library was opened at the same time of the event.
For a year, JJ had talked about having a costume after not being able to wear one last year. He was a Samurai Batman.
Apparently, JJ had a growth spurt in the last few weeks so there was struggle getting him into his costume, but a little pulling, binder clips and prayer got the costume on him.

I decided to go as my favorite thing – a mother/photographer/bodyguard/book nerd wearing a Wonder Woman shirt.
JJ decided to add his own special touch to it with a trident and a Flash mask for me. I’m not sure what I was supposed to have been but I played along until lunchtime.
For the first hour, he played free video game…
