My Homie

He's no Donny Osmond, but can we all say, "Yowza!" This is Luke Menard and he is from right here in Crawfordsville, Indiana. And HE is in the final 24 of American Idol!!!! Now how cool is that people?

I am grouchy though because I've been watching and they haven't showed him once singing or doing a background story on him. If you think he's good please vote for him!

If you've noticed I haven't been around much lately. Last week I was rushed to the ER. I have yet another kidney stone. Plus ecoli. Not sure how I got that. I had to have a minor surgery to attach a tube in my back so the urine can drain into a bag until I get the ecoli is gone. I will more than likely be having surgery to remove the stone because it is large. You know me. I can never do anything easy!

I also learned from from my cat scan that I have quite a large ovarian cyst and fluid around my heart. Fluid is common for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis so I am not too worried, but need to have it checked out.

So I am back to sitting on the side of my bed working again. In all honesty, I feel really, really bad this time around. I can't eat or concentrate on much of anything. But I'll be alright. Soon I hope.

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I'll try to come visit soon!

YES. . . I'll pray for you. And about American Idol. I haven't watched it yet this year, but now that they're down to the top 24, I think I will. And I'll definitely be keeping my eye on your local celebrity.

Wow Amy you do have a lot going on in your life lately. I have had kidney stones and ovarian cysts before, both annoying!!!!!! And that kidney can be a painful bugger! I always like it when men get them, since they say the pain is similar to labor. :) LOL!

Keep us posted. Praying for you dear!!

He is a cutie-pie. I haven't watched AI that much yet. But, I'm sure I will really get into it in the next couple of weeks.

I hope that you begin to feel better soon. I'm very sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I will add you to my prayer list. Take care of yourself!!
