First off! Thank you all for all your lovely thoughts and comments. It truly warmed my heart. The swelling has come down quite a bit and I am able to function a bit better. I must still keep my feet elevated for 6-8 hours a day. Otherwise, I will have tree trunks for legs by the end of the day. I can say this much...NEVER again will I leave something like this for weeks on end. Yes...yes I was bad and started getting symtoms earlier but shrugged it off as "my thyroid meds must be off". Then continue to work with very swollen legs. BAD IDEA! This almost landed me in the hospital. EEEKKKK...since I work in a hospital, believe me, a hospital is the LAST place I want to be!
I still have good days and bad days, but more good now. Again, thank you for all of you stopping by! It truly made my days!
Now on to something that is truly a MIRACLE! Below is a pic of what Jim and I vacuumed off our carpets. I KNOW! GROSS!
But here is the story, so you don't think we are total PIGS! We have in the last year gone through 5 vacuums. We burned out the motors due to Glacier's hair! When our last one burned up which was 3 months ago. We decided we would save up instead of buying YET another failure. We needed to save up about 600 dollars for the NEW Dyson DC17 Animal Vacuum. This last Saturday, while I was elevating my feet, my dear hubby went out to Kohl's. Jim couldn't wait to make the purchase. He said people were commenting in line how crazy "that guy is" for buying such a expensive piece. AAAhhhhh...but what they didn't know...WHAT we didn't know. Was Mr.Dyson had created a vacuuming MIRACLE! We read the directions very carefully (easy breezy). And then Jim set out to vacuum. Within the first sweep of the Dyson...we saw it! All the microfine hair floating and twirling around the canister. And it sucked up all the dander and dust that WAS UNDER the carpet! Then it became a game...we did every inch of house. Even on areas that SHOWED NO SIGN of dog/cat hair IT STILL PICKED UP all that was under the fibers! This machine has saved OUR HOUSE! It looks and feels like we have NO ANIMALS in our house. I just had to share this will all of you who have pets. This vacuum is worth every penny! We will never buy anything else. I can now feel confident to have my baby nephew on the floor and not wonder what he is sucking in or playing on. I can sit on my carpet with black pants and get up and NO HAIR!
I LOVE MY DYSON!
Now off to blog and catch up! Love ya'all to bits!
With much love,
