My Colorful Breakfast and some updates...
Isn't it a colorful breakfast? lol I guess I'm in a better mood today. I'm even singing to some of my favorite songs on my iPod. The pain is less today, alhamdulillah (thanks God)!
Those up are my daily medicines. I take them all in the morning and then at night I take 2 more pills and 2 puff from the white inhaler. They keep my asthma controlled, and they treat the pains and other symptoms from the Lupus. There's no cure for Lupus, only things that relief the symptoms. There are some natural remedies that can help, but I'm very cautionary and only take them if the doctor says it's okay.
Well, this is not the only thing I eat at breakfast. I had a nice cup of Dunkin' Donuts Hazelnut coffee (a gift from ex-hubby) and a cheese sandwich. Now I'll finish some tatting and dress up to go out with hubby.
On another note... I will appreciate if you can pray (make duah) for my FIL. He felt again and this time broke his right hip and had stitches in his left eyebrow. He's 80 something years old and very stubborn. Don't want to ask for help and then is when he falls. Last year in a 2 months period he fall 6 times!!! And have been a little over 2 years when he had surgery to mend a bad fracture in a leg. Alhamdulillah he has plenty of sons and daughters that will be taking care of him.
Also my hubby is going through a bad time too. He has been sick. After I nag and nag about doing labs and having a very strong pain in the stomach area he went to the doctor. They find several deficiencies but the most "serious" are stones in the left kidneys and a very enlarge liver. He's taking medicines for the stones and inshallah will not need surgery. But the liver is what is worrying us (including dr). At least is not Hepatitis. Those came negative.
Well, that has been a little update about us during this week. Oh!!! I didn't show what hubby got my for my BD. Yes, after almost 2 months he took a photo of me wearing the gift. lol
It's a "butterfly" shawl. One side is brown and the other side is ecru. I can use it either way. It was very windy that day. the first sandstorm of the season, though it wasn't as hard as the one 2 days ago. The flat is full of sand! Yuck!
