New Home, Yay!

So, I don’t know which post I mentioned this in but I finally moved! I hated living in an apartment – those 6 months where very long! lol I moved to a duplex instead and it is so much more quiet. No more people living on top of me. I promised some pictures once I got a little settled. I almost have everything the way I wanted it but I have a few more things to hang up.

My job gives me surprises

I guess working for a hospital can have some cool surprises – though most of the time it is just exhausting. We got a call from the surgery floor that the monitor in Heart
RM 10 was not working. So I got volunteered to go take a look at it. I had to suit up from head to toe which make me feel like the stay puff marshmallow man. I thought I was just suiting up because it is a sterile room but it turns out that they had someone on the table in there!

So I got to see an actual beating human heart still in someones chest! They let me in to look at the monitor, which turned out to not be something I.T. could even fix. Before I left, they asked if I had ever seen a human heart and let me come around to the table to look. I was all over that, I wasn’t going to say no since it is a once in a lifetime experience when you’re not a surgeon.

Feeling Cured

It’s hard to believe that I’m on my 7th month after surgery already. As the title says, I’m feeling cured from it. It’s a wonderful feeling. These 7 months I haven’t gotten a sick spell or vomited even once. It almost feels like I’m in a dream. No more intense pain in my gut, no painful bloating, no tummy pain or nausea and best of all no waking up in the middle of the night in a lot of pain and not being able to get enough sleep.

Now, I’m not so foolish to think I won’t get sick anymore (haha if only). It is just the pain I had before the surgery was something different than regular illness and stomach bugs. It was an on-going nightmare that lasted for 27 years of my life.

October is time for Halloween and…

more photography! I decided to test out my outfit that I plan to wear for the Halloween party my sister and her Husband are throwing. I’m not going to dress up this extravagant though. This is the first time I have worn this wig and it is the first time I have used top AND bottom lashes. I felt like a drag queen until the whole look came together. It was a lot of fun to wear that much makeup and feel like a different person. Here are a few of my favorites. You can see the rest on the photography page. XD

The best part of this photo shoot was finally getting to experiment with my off camera flash and gel lights. I need to buy one more stand though… the balance is something I need a lot of practice with but sometimes you just have to do to it to figure out what needs to be done to get the results you really want.
