Welcome to my Ativan induced Blogstophere!


Welcome all my SITSTA's! You came at the perfect time. While you are visiting, I'm might be at the hospital getting fixed, refer to this post for more information on that lovely topic. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is also Down Syndrome Awareness month. Something I know alot about, since my two oldest brats teen daughter's have down syndrome. Mercede is 18 and Cheyenne is 16. They have a rarer form of down syndrome called Translocation Trisomy 21. It is the only form of down syndrome that can be inherited. And you guessed it, I am a carrier. It's all good. God knew I would love one of them so much, he gifted me with two. I'm married to Child Husband, so called because he is 11 years younger than me, and also cause he acts like a baby child. I've got two other children Chris and Aysha and a pet fish that I hate, cause it ate 75 dollars worth of snails, crabs and fish

I started this blog after a friend of mine Meredith adopted two children with down syndrome from the Ukraine. She went thru Reece's Rainbows International Adoption Ministry. I started stalking adoption blogs from Reece's. They are saving children with down syndrome (and other disabilities) from being put in a institution where they may die early from starvation and neglect. I fir
st heard about SITS on a site where a woman had adopted three children with down syndrome. I'm so glad I did. I've made many new bloggy friends but I'll post about that tomorrow on the BIG SITS DAY!!

In honor of it being Down Syndrome Awareness month, I'll direct you to my friend Renee's Blog She has a beautiful daughter Kennedy with down syndrome whom has braved cancer and neck surgery this last year. She is blogging 31 days for T21 and has a contest going on where you can win a gift basket. You can also learn alot about down syndrome over there. Over here your just going to learn how crazy my family is and why I carry a script for Ativan in my purse!!

Oh and I'm going to host a We Were the 80's day on October 30th. It will be a day to show off your stylist 80's photo's (if your were born before then). Just email (email is listed in my profile) me a link to your blog and I'll post it up on the 30th.

Thanks for stopping by. If I make it out of the hospital, you should hear from me by Tuedays night, if you don't, then send money to my family;) Do say some prayers for Tiffany today as she is going into the hospital today for a more serious surgery than I.

Yikes, they posted early today!! I'm not done with my post, oh no!! I'd better get this thing up!

Update: I had no idea they were putting me out and putting a breathing tube in for this procedure. I almost walked out. All is good though. I just slept my SITS day away!! lol

I have enjoyed, times three, reading your blog. I have seven children, one fat dog, and a husband with colon cancer, but I think you have one tough, amazing job you've been asked to do.

Happy SITS Day!

So sorry child hubby chickened out and you had to go under! I'd hug you but I think you'd hit me if I squeezed to hard...
Congratulations on the SITS thing...still not sure what it is!
God Bless!

Does Anybody Hear Me said...

Well there's nothing like getting a surprise when you arrive at the hospital for surgery!
And the pic you posted awhile back of what they were going to do was just downright scary.
I hope you are feeling better today!!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

Holy Comments batman!!! LOL Thanks for posting my contest, you're entered twice!

ativan said...

Ok i guess....xanax better though! I took ativan for about 3 months or so because i was having really bad anxiety attacks and becamse agoraphobic so i would take it as needed...well at first it was ok but made me feel spaced out but it never really took the anxiety away like xanax..if you have anxiety attacks that arent very intense then ativan would be a good choice but if you get the heart palps, racing heart, numbness, tunnel vision, i wouldnt recommend ativan...i also got pretty dependant on it because in my mind i figured it would always work but reality was that it didnt....try something like klonopin or xanax and for those people that have anxiety all of the time try xanax xr its less habit forming because the half-life is 24 hours and it works better.

G said...

Oh I have taken Zanax but it does nothing for me. Both are super habit forming. I currently take neither. I found that none of them help me fast after I go into a panic attack. But sometimes I know things that will set me off so I take Ativan before.
