Where the flaming hell am I?

Where the flaming hell am I?

I haven’t been around. Well I have been, just not anywhere I usually am.

Dylan and I got a free helicopter ride. Only he was drugged and slept through it all.

The Universe is once again using us as an example, or some fucking thing.

We are in Vancouver in a hotel room right now, my son is sound asleep.

He went diving on Sunday….it all went downhill from there. By Tuesday morning we were on a helicopter, Vancouver bound. He spent seven hours in the hyperbaric chamber yesterday, two hours today and will do 4 hours tomorrow. It makes him sleep, but slowly he is getting better.

The bends* are nothing to mess with. My son is a vibrant energetic kid that you can’t hold back, this has knocked him on his ass.

I am terrified of him diving, he knows this. This isn’t really helping with that, if you know what I mean.

***Just an update, he didn’t actually have the bends, in the end it was Mono. Seriously, WTF? Apparently the symptoms are exactly the same, but because he had been diving, they didn’t test for Mono…they assumed it was the bends…nice huh?

The end of this year has been a brutal one,  I am ready to bring in a new year.

Hopefully tomorrow will be the end of the treatments and we can go home. I miss my other son,  I miss my girls and our Charlie Angel hugs….I want to be home for Christmas….

I am done with the Universe’s twisted sense of haha…you know  like this…


Or us being here with no clothes….and having to do this :)


I hate dirty socks….

On the bright side….I did get some baby love. My brother and Jen came here before they went home to Mom and Dad’s house.

They are coming to see us on Friday…I can barely wait.

I will post an update as soon as I get home. But to any of you that won’t be around….I wish you a very Merry Christmas….my love to you all.


Here is to a Happy 2012  xoxo

    I hope you still managed to have a good christmas, I know a few people who have had to spend time in the chamber as a result of diving, generally diving scares the hell out of me and I dont know why anyone would chose to do it but it is some peoples passion!

    Oh my gosh! I hope you are both home now and that he is recovering quickly. Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers!
