Trashy Taco Soup Recipe!

Hey Everyone! Sorry its been so long since I last posted on this blog! I've been busy with school, life, and my beauty blog is keeping me very busy as well! ;) But anyways, just wanted to post the recipe of this soup I made last night for dinner.

Its called Trashy Taco Soup. It was SO good!! I got the recipe from my awesome friend, Emily or as we all know her as Emilynoel83 :) But she made this soup a few weeks ago, and I thought it sounded so good!

The recipe is linked HERE but originally it was from Pinterest.

Thats it for this post, I just wanted to post this for y'all so that you could make it if you wanted to. :) And if you do end up making it, let me know how you liked it! Have a wonderful day everyone and I'll be blogging again soon!

Hospital stay: day 8....

Hey everyone! I hope y'all are doing well. It has been 8 days here in the hospital, nothing new to report. Which in a sense is a good thing I guess :) All the cultures are coming back negative still and I am feeling pretty good.

Surgery is still set for Wednesday unless something changes drastically in the next 24-48 hours. So that is pretty much it for now. I'll be putting up another update tomorrow! Have a great night everyone! :)

Hospital stay: 1 week....

Hey everyone! So its been 1 week here at the hospital and everyday gets a little better! The cerebrel fluid cultures are still negative and the plan remains the same. We will re-internalize my shunt on Wednesday if the cultures continue to come back negative.

Well, that's about it for now :) lunch is almost here, but I hope y'all have a great day and I'll post another update tomorrow. I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday, I only had gotten 4 hours of sleep the night before so I turned everything off early last night :)

But anyways, have a wonderful day! :)

Hospital stay: day 6....

Hey everyone! Ok, so its been six days since I've been here in the hospital and it has been 5 days since surgery. Things are going well today (thank goodness!) and I met with my neurosurgeon's resident this morning. He said nothing has come back from the cultures as positive yet (which is good so far, but this slow growing shunt infection can take up to 7 days to come up positive) 

So the plan is still to re-internalize the shunt next Wednesday again barring nothing shows up positive from the cultures and my symptoms don't get worse. If everything goes as planned for next week, I should be home by next Friday. 

Thats all I have for now, I'll be updating daily :) Have a great day everyone! :) 

Yesterday was Day 5 in the hospital....

Day 5 in the hospital: Sorry I didn't get a chance to update yesterday, but I figured I would just put yesterday's update following up with today's update. (If that makes any sense :) 

officially made it to 4 days since surgery! Had some minor issues this afternoon, but other than that things are going really well! The plan is still to definitely re-internalize next Wednesday barring nothing comes back positive from the daily cultures :) again, thank you to everyone who has visited, brought me things, brought smiles and laughter when I need it most, and most of all prayed for me!! Y'all are awesome, I love each of you so dearly! {{{Hugs}}} ♥ can't wait to be back to life soon! :D

Hospital stay: day 5....

Hey everyone! I hope y'all are having a great Tuesday morning! I got the "final final" answer from my surgeon this morning, he will be re-internalizing my mechanism next Wednesday. So I'm here at the hospital until at least next Friday :)

But anyways, one good thing I was able to skype with my college girls Bible study group last night. It was a great session and I think it was the best "medicine" for my headache! Laughter accompanied with awesome friends? I think yes! :D

Having a few of the girls from the group come visit as well as a girl I work with, so very excited for that today! :) but other than that, nothing too exciting is going on.

I'll be updating more as the week goes on, have a great day everyone! :)
