I had a great time at the Women Techmakers dinner this year.  One of the things they gave the attendees was a 3 month voucher for Code School. I am having a lot of fun learning to code with it. I am brushing up on my HTML and Basic CSS on Codecademy then moving to more advanced CSS and JavaScript at Code School.  Later I may post a link to my testing site. for now if you’d like to see my progress here is my Github test repository Chritien’s Cafe. Please remember I am just learning so it is going to be very basic.

I will be having another treatment of cytoxan around the 19th of this month but I will not have to be hospitalized to do so it will be a 5-6 hour infusion session at my doctors office.

I still have a lot (20 to 30 lbs) of water from the swelling that needs to come out of my body.  That is the goal this week to get as much of that out as possible.  I’m going to have to be very strict on my sodium intake. good thing I’ve been working on that already . The doctor also increased the dosage of Lasix i am taking. My next followup is next Monday we will see then if i have dispelled enough of the water if not i may be hospitalized to do the job. 

I am still getting better each day. Thank you to everyone praying for my speedy recovery.

As many of you know that have been following  me on Facebook, after 12 years of remission my Lupus has flared up again. Now that I am on the mend once again I thought I’d let everyone know what happened and answer any questions that anyone might have along the way.

I’m going to start out from about a month or so ago when this all started. About mid-September Mike got sick with a cold as such then I got sick and then Nick. We were all getting better when the San Jose Sharks Hockey season started up. I was very excited I’ve been a big fan since last year when I got to go to my first ever game.

We all went to the Home Opener on Oct 3 to cheer on our Sharks, while Tim Cheered on the Canucks. I had fun as always but the next day I realized I may have over done it. I was Coughing really back again and lost my voice. I made a Doctor appointment with my Primary Doctor Dr. Vahamaki.  It was for the following Wed Oct 9th.

On Tue the 8th I looked in the mirror and realized my face was redder than usual I asked Mike about it and he agreed it looked redder. I thought I could have been having an allergic reaction to something so I took some allergy meds but nothing changed, the rash didn’t go away.

Nick decided to go with me to the Doc because he was worried about the rash as well. Dr. V was concerned to and took a few pictures of the rash and ordered a lupus blood panel on me just to make sure. I did the tests and came home the next day at around 9am I get a call from Dr.V saying he is worried about my blood work and is going to talk to one of the rheumatologists in the office right way. My rheumatologist was out on sabbatical so he met with Dr. Kuzis instead and she was very worried and called me saying she wanted to see me at 10:30 the same day.

Having driven in to work that day, Nick had to come pick me up. When we saw the Doctor she put me on meds right way, Plaquenil and Prednisone both common in treating lupus. She also put me on Lisinapril, a high blood pressure med because one of the symptoms I was having was very high blood pressure which is odd for me because for the past 7 years I’ve had test book perfect blood pressure. She had me do some more tests and I went home.

She called the next day saying I needed to see a nephrologist because I was leaking a lot of protein into my urine. So we made the appointment and waited. As we waited I started to feel worse and Sunday Oct 13th at around 10 pm I noticed just how much I was swelling up it was really hard to move around and I was having to catch my breath from the smallest of tacks.

We called the 24 hour nurse hotline on the back of our insurance card and explained what was going on and asked advice on what we should do. They said to call an ambulance right away and get me to the hospital, so we did. They did some test and they agreed that something was wrong with my kidneys but did not admit me because it wasn’t “bad enough” to be an emergency.

We came back home really late and waited for my appointment with the Nephrologist on Tue Oct 15th. When we got to see Dr. Sorooshian.  She was very worried and said we are going to admit you to the hospital. It was already late in the day so no real good could be done that night so she let me go home and prepare to be admitted the next morning at 8 am.

In my next post I’ll talk about what happen in the hospital.  If anyone has any questions for me about what happened to me, Lupus or anything that happened, please leave a question in the comments or on Facebook or Google+ and I’ll answer answer them either in reply or in another article.

Yesterday I had a great day hanging out with my sister, Betina Garcia. We went to lunch, we shopped for jewelry, and we got our nails done.  Spending this time with my sister made me realize or maybe remember that she is my hero.  When we where younger I looked up to her though sometimes we fought she was and is a great sister. If I had to describe her I would say that she is stubborn, but mostly strong, disciplined, hardworking,  and caring. She has seen amazing and terrible things yet still she solders on protecting our country. Recently she has lost a lot of good friends who gave their lives to protect everyone of us. Yesterday I saw my sister cry and I am glad that I was there to hold her and tell her that I will always be there for her just as she is always there for me. I pray the Lord is taking care of those lost solders letting them have the rest and peace they deserve. And I pray everyday that He is with my sister guiding and protecting her while she puts her life on the line to do her job. I hope one day everyone sees her as a hero like I see her.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard - Collectors Edition

I am very excited that The Tales of Beedle the Bard are now going to be available to everyone, for a price that is. There are going to be two versions coming out in December. The standard one will just be a typed version of the original, but there is going to be a collectors edition, exclusively from Amazon.com, that will be a replica of the original. The replica comes with some cool bonuses as well J.K. Rowling mentions them on her site.

The new edition will include the Tales themselves, translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, and with illustrations by me, but also notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore, which appear by generous permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters’ Archive.’ ‘Dumbledore’s commentary on the Tales, which was discovered among his papers after his death, includes some historical notes, personal reminiscences, and insights into that most mysterious branch of magic: wandlore.

The Standard Edition copy is priced at $7.59 on Amazon. The Collector’s is priced at $100. The proceeds well be going to the Children’s High Level Group. Of course Nick and I have already pre-ordered our Collector’s Edition copy and plan to get a standard edition too.

https://i1.wp.com/ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51yMGu4HA2L._SL75_.jpg?resize=50%2C75 Today is the one year anniversary of the release or the last book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Nick and I had the privilege to host a book release party on this day last year. It was very exciting. After the party we went home and had a reading maration. Nick didn’t stop till he was finished with the book I on the other hand couldn’t stay up that long. I had to sleep a little before finishing. The strange thing is I am very carful with my books but after one read through of my copy of Deathly Hallows it fell apart I still have it but I had to remove the broken binding so now it is in loose pages that I find easier to hander then a large bound book. If I wanted to read a bound copy I wouldn’t have a problem we ended up with 5 copies in out home Nick and I both have 2 and our roommate has one. I’m rereading the book right now actully. Taking it slower is helping me savor the story.

My roommate watches the news, I don’t. So I get a lot of my news from him. Well this morning he was chatting with me and was telling me about Milk haveing a new container. At first I’m thinking “ok why would I care about a milk jug”. Then he started to describ it and I got intrested. So I did a google search and found a news article on the new york times website talking about it. I’ve got to say it looks cool. I’ll be looking for it on the shelf next time I go into a Walmart.
