New Relapse =(

I went to my neurologist yesterday and she told me that I am having another MS relapse. This one is not fun. It started after the farm field trip a couple of weeks ago and has slowly gotten worse until this weekend; then I felt like I was hit by a truck!

At first my legs were just weak so I was trying to rest and not overdue it, then the muscle and nerve pain set in even with all of the medicine the doctor has me on. Finally my brain decided to fly out the window too! Ever try to take a bunch of sleeping pills and then function? That is how I have been feeling for about the last week! Except I never took any sleeping pills!

So today I started taking IV steroids. I had my first dose today and I will go back again tomorrow and Friday for the final doses. I will be out of work this whole week and I am crossing my fingers that I will be able to return next week since I am running out of sick days! Luckily we do not have school on Monday or Tuesday so I can rest those days as well!

I will update as I know more.

Parties in the classrooms!

In my classroom I tried to have a "Happy Healthy Halloween Party" so that not all of my 19 students would show up with cookies and cupcakes! It turned out pretty nice! They had apples, carrots, pretzels, animal crackers, fruit snacks, and popcorn. They loved it and they even got to take home goody bags filled with candy from their classmates! In the morning we did Halloween craft centers. It was a lot of work getting it ready but the kids had a blast! They made ghost windsocks, witches and bats out of toilet paper tubes, hand print bats, pumpkins on a hanger and Halloween necklaces! Hopefully their parents won't throw all of their hard work away as soon as they get home! =)

Here is a picture of Chloe and me in her classroom! I forgot to put my hat on for the picture though!

Chloe being a goofball during her party!

She looks like she is working hard on that crossword puzzle!!

Steve and I went to his friend Jino's wedding so I made him take some pictures of us before we left the house! Too bad Chloe wasn't still home so all 3 of us would have been in the pictures!!

Chloe went to a birthday party!!

Chloe was invited to her friend Aubrey's birthday party at a store called Justice. The girls got their hair and make up done, received goody bags, and then went across the parking lot to eat cake and ice cream. Chloe loved the way her hair turned out and was excited to take many pictures for me!
