Musings From the Past-6/2009

6/2009 update - Up & Down, Up & Down...that's the best way to describe my medical's annoying. I never know if it's going to be a good day or calendar revolves around doctor's appointments, my daughter is getting (if not already) too heavy for me to pick up), a simple trip to the Renaissance Faire (for which I rested up for for days, even spending the day before in bed) resulted in a tiring but fun day followed by a horrible reaction to the sun which went systemic. I was threatened with IV Infusion and spending time in the hospital. And now I'm NEVER allowed any prolonged or really ANY sun exposure :-(

Whine, Whine, Whine! LOL
This is me and my manservant/husband. My dress without the petticoat underneath. It looks so much better with the petticoat (by the way, I made that dress & my husband's shirt myself), my face looks so "moon faced" (aka: round/fat) here, a side effect of large doses of Prednisone. 24 hours after this picture was taken, I'd be flat on my back in bed with giant blisters all over my shoulders (the one place I forgot to put sunscreen and wasn't covered up). The sun caused a flare which went wildly systemic and I was down for about 3 weeks to a month...just from the darn sun...for gosh sakes, I live in California! I can't get away from the sun. The Faire was fun. I haven't been since, I'm too scared to go. My dress is somewhat on display on a dressmakers figure (a mannequin who's dimensions you can change). I think next to my wedding dress, I loved wearing this dress second, but with the huge petticoat to make the skirt fill out like a true Princess's should.
