You’ll have to forgive my sporadic updates; between painting, moving and this infection I’m fighting, I’ve been a bit preoccupied. I haven’t been able to wear really cute clothing, because my left arm is twice its usual size (down to the elbow) and hurts like no other. I have good days and bad days; the last couple of days were awful! I had a fever and horrible chills and the pain was unbearable. I am on antibiotics, but the doctor’s expectations are pretty low. He wants to refer me to a surgeon. Lovely! I don’t have insurance. What to do?
Keep your fingers crossed that it’s not too late for antibiotics to clear this up. At the very least, I’m happy that my fever broke. In the meantime, here are some pictures from a week or so ago, before the infection spread like wildfire:)
One of my favorite necklaces, the little bunny necklace from Anirtak. It’s my Peanutty necklace. Nunner Bunner (one of the many nicknames I had for Peanutty) always lives on in my heart, but I keep her pictures on the wall and random little bunny trinkets around, so she’s always near me.
On this day, I changed outfits three times. This was the first outfit. It doesn’t look very summery, but that’s because it was not a summery day. It was chilly and rainy, when I woke up. As we took these pictures, it started to warm up, so I changed into a different outfit. Later on, I changed into a dress for dinner. Kind of ridiculous!
Speaking of bunnies – did you know that I almost named Miku “Bunny”? I named our cat “Puppy,” when I was five. I thought it would be cute to name her Bunny, since I had a Peanutty bunny at the time. Plus, she looked like a little bunny. My mom vetoed the name. I still call her Bunny, from time to time, but it’s just a term of endearment that I use for most animals (and Kimbly). This was really more of an excuse to post cute pictures of the little babies. Miku and Vester are best buds. Excuse Miku’s ratty looking coat – I guess I didn’t brush her that day!
In other news, you may have noticed the lack of Postlapsaria updates. That’s because I haven’t been able to photograph the clothes! I don’t want to get my gross infected arm all over the clothing. I was waiting for it to clear up, but I guess I’m going to have to photograph them hanging on a form or something. Antibiotics, please clear this up! It’s getting so old.
p.s. I just checked and the bunny (Lone Hopper) necklace is still available at Anirtak’s Etsy, and it’s only $10!
