I hear ya!


I did really well today! We were at Santa Rosa Children's Hospital in San Antonio, where they had lots of toys/activities for kids in the waiting room. I did enjoy playing for a while before I was called back.

When they called us to a room, the fun began. I completely refused to have my blood pressure taken (as usual). I did let the doctors listen to my heart and with lots of assistance and I even let them take my oxygen saturation (sorta!). The worst part of the whole day was when the nurse attempted to get my blood pressure. I'm not fond of being held down at all, and I'm not shy about expressing that!

The anesthesiologist was very nice, as were all of the nurses and the audiologist.  My papa stayed with me until I was masked and passed out. Mama hates seeing me go under anesthesia, so I was thankful that my papa hung out with me! (I did get an IV, but not until I was completely out! (Score!))

By the time my mama got back to the recovery room I had stuffed my mouth full of animal crackers and was pretty happy, but groggy. I polished off that bag of animal crackers, had a cup of juice and then moved on to a bag of gold fish. I was starving people!

Half an hour later and we were out of there!

My little brother Kylar was a trooper all day too. (He's learning from the best!)

Great news is that my hearing is perfect.  And my speech is getting better every day.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers!

Please think of me...


Tomorrow I am going to be having a hearing test. It shouldn't be a big deal, but I have to be put under general anesthesia. I am not fond of hospitals, but I'll be fine. Mommy, Kylar and my Papa are going with me. I can't have food or drink after midnight tonight, and my check in time is 12 p.m. So I guess you better wish my mama good luck too.

If you've got time, please say a little prayer for me!

Thanks guys, you're the best.

PS: Doesn't my eye look fabulous!? I've come a long way baby!!

CSN Review - Hana Lotion Pump

I originally had these poor broken dispensers. They were cute, but they BOTH broke! The top part that screwed into the pump just fell off.  Ugghh. (These were NOT purchased from CSN!)

They definitely needed replacing, so I got these gorgeous new ones from CSN. I placed the order and two days later they were at my front door!


I use them at my kitchen sink. One for hand soap and one for dish soap! So much prettier than a bottle of Dawn, right?!

Great product!
This collection will add an elegant took that will bring a unique beauty to your bathroom (or kitchen!). All pieces are hand weaved. I would absolutely recommend  this product! Nice, durable and pretty all at the same time! (The most difficult part about placing an order with CSN was trying to narrow down my purchase. They have over 200 stores and SOOOO many products.)

*I was given a $40 gift certificate for CSN Stores, but this in no way influenced my opinion of the product reviewed here.

So coming soon... my (and mama's) honest opinion about the item(s) we chose!!
