I'm back from the dead.

Truly I don't have a ton to blog about or update because I have been extremely sick with pneumonia. I know, I know, it is so embarrassing that my health is that crazy and it just goes from one thing to the next. But, it is what it is and now I am trying slowly but surely to get over the effects from it. I coughed my guts out and nothing is less fun than having all these surgeries on your chest, and then coughing on top of it all day every day. It has been so miserable.

Pneumonia leaves you so weak for so long, and one of these days I will get my body out of bed for more than a few hours. Really I have not left my it, except for doctor's appointments, since my surgery December 7th. You can imagine what Christmas goodies/dinner and laying in bed for three weeks does to a body....not pretty.

However I had an incredible Christmas despite it all! My mom tried really hard to bring the Christmas spirit to me because I didn't get to do one ounce of Christmas outings and shopping and festivities. It truly was me and Scuddles and this ridiculous show:

Yep, I really did it. Once again, embarrassing I know, that I watched all 6 seasons in these three weeks. I did nothing but fill my mind with Manhattan's elite and scandalous lives. It is pretty ridiculous, but what else did I have the energy to do? Zero. Zilch. Not even the energy to read or have visitors.

I didn't expect or ask for anything for Christmas because I have been quite the expensive child with all of these surgeries and prescriptions and tests. Really, I don't need a thing! But my parents always throw in surprises and in the bottom of my stocking I found this:

They couldn't buy one in the state because they were so back ordered so it is coming monday! I was so shocked and so excited. Once again, the parents outdid themselves. 

My other exciting present was this:

4.0!! Yay!! I truly never (and don't think I have ever) posted about grades, but this semester was just too exciting! I worked so hard and was so blessed because of how much I was dealing with, surgeries and hospital visits and all, and can't believe I finished off this well. I wanted to quit so many times and withdraw and I am so glad I toughed it out. Another example that proves you can definitely do whatever you put your mind to.

And that about wraps up my excitement for now. I am going to attempt to go out in public to go see the incredible (from what I hear) Les Miserables with my family tonight. I have been dying to see it and my family has been so sweet to wait and see it with me when I felt well enough...I just love them so much.

More later.

And since it is all I have been watching I feel like I have to end with this...

You know you love me...
