about to give up

Well sorry that I haven't been good at blogging lately. we have been really busy and I am about ready to just give up and call it quits on about everything. I don't know what else can go wrong. Lately we have been so tight with money because of the job change and Pepsi jiping us on his last pay check that we haven't really been able to make ends meet. Then we start to smell something really bad from the basement and take a whole weekend and try to clean it just to find that everything is covered in mold and no amount of bleach will kill it and actually is making it worse by creating gasses that are more poisonous and so that has been a chore and it costs $50 to have any one just walk through your door to look at it and tell you what to do. Right now we are just waiting to hear if our insurance will help take care of it but the inspector told us not to count on it because it is an old house so that is not reassuring.
To top that Embree has been extremely sick for the past four days, it has gone from what we thought was the stomach flu, to the chicken pox to about everything else under the moon, just to say the least we are not very impressed with the doctors right now because of this. Yesterday my mom watched her so that i could go to class and apparently while she was sleeping she started to have cramps in her stomach and started to scream bloody murder and scared my mom really bad so they called me and when I got out of class we rushed her to the Doctors office, boy was that a joke they were trying to turn us away and say nothing was wrong that it was normal for her to have 3 massive diareah filled diapers in an hour and that her bloody murdering scream was just fine. well we finally got to see the doctor and luckily she had the cramps and the screaming right in front of him and so he is worried that it could be 1 of 3 things. 1st, just constipation (well this is normal for her but not lately and so we ruled this out), 2nd, there is a bad stomach flu going around that causes nausea, cramping and diareah and you don't throw up but it is not a 24 Hour flu it last for up to 2 weeks is the shortest that they have seen lately, and 3rd either a hernia, a blocked bowl or a kinked bowl. So we went with the 3rd and so we had to go get X-Rays of her stomach and are still waiting for the results. Well to top that we have no health insurance and we hit our limit for doctor visits and hospital visits with medicaid in august and so there is more money that has to be paid. Well I guess that i am going to stop complaining but I just need to get it out of my system and so sorry that i did. Well we hope that everyone else is good and we love you all.

so, I totally needed to hear the whole story so I'm glad you vented. Man, what can I say really other than that I am sorry. I hope Embree starts to feel better. Are you going to class right now, while she is sick?
