a great weekend.

sean had to have an ultrasound this week. he has suffered from ulcerative colitis since he was 18. he was really sick when he was first diagnosed. he has been able to keep in under control, and last year they even thought it had amazingly gone away. but lately he has not been feeling too well. so they did tons of blood work and he ended up having a ultrasound because his liver isn't lookin too good. i hope they will get to the bottom of this! i am not trying to sound dramatic or anything, but with sean's disease he has a really high risk of colon cancer. it increases each decade after diagnosis. so i guess i do worry about him.

pretty much it means that he has uclers on the inside of his colon that swell up really bad. your colon can't swell outward so it only swells inward and causes blockage and lots of pain and bleeding. i can't even imagine what this would feel like. just looking at sean, and how happy he is, you would probably never know that he suffers from this. he is a trooper. i complain for hours when i get a paper cut. i like to pretend that he can maybe relate to having cramps.. but then i don't want him to relate because i want him to think they are way worse so that i can still use them as an excuse to get out of church..(wait did i just say that?) even though i am sure he would take those any day over colitis.

Not too much has been going on around here besides that. well actually we have just been really busy with work and all that fun stuff. mosey is getting really big. we are guessing he is around 22-23lbs. this week he has been incredibly whiney in the mornings. it has been frustrating. well a couple of days ago sean grabbed him and let him chill in bed with us for a bit. mosey was so funny. he caught his reflection in the mirror while sitting. and was entranced. i mean, we think he is a good looking dog. but i guess he does as well. he would just stare at himself for minutes. then he would twitch his ear. or move his head slightly. and keep looking. it was so funny. oh and i guess he doesn't like photo booth pictures very much. probably because he had a hard time seeing his face so he wasn't interested. dogs.



photos taken at this website. which i found out about from my blog friend justine. we have just kept it pretty low-key this weekend. we haven't had any definite plans which has been nice. we haven't had a weekend like that in a long time. we have been going on a lot of walks with mosey to some new parks and places and it has been nice. i think having a dog has been good for me. i wouldn't say that i am active by any means, but i have been a little bit more active since getting a dog. i guess it was a dog or a gym pass. and the dog won. they are much cuter than gym passes eh? although yesterday he took a dump right in the middle of the road. and i guess i should say it wasn't a full dump. because he didn't appear to have gotten all of it out of him and a piece was floppin around on the outside and it just wasn't that pretty but was pretty darn hilarious. he walked like that for about ten minutes. guess you probably had to be there... 

we went and saw shrek forever after yesterday and we both really enjoyed it. and we had sushi for lunch before that. it has been a really good weekend. glad i got to spend it with my best friend. i know i am crazy and tease sean a ton, but really? i think the world of him. i still can't believe he married me. i don't know what he was thinking. and i know i can be so much better of a wife than i have been. sean is so good with moses. he is so good with all kids. he is so good at being my husband and best friend. i hope someday i will be able to return the favor.... hmmm.. don't know why i am being sappy tonight. maybe it's because i am watching sweet home alabama..anyway... hope you all had a great weekend! yay for no work tomorrow!

oh i almost forgot! i may or may not have accidentally smudged some butter that didn't properly get wiped off of my thumb from a napkin at dinner, on my brand new purse. i blame it on the napkin. i pretty much wanted to cry all night. i kind of got it out..but does anyone know of any good leather purse protectant stuff? i have never had to worry about crazy stuff like this... the life of a nice purse owner..yeesh. i don't know if i am cut out for this lifestyle. i feel like i can't even take it out of the house. i can't lay it on the ground at a movie. i feel like i take better care of it than my own body. any tips?

Ok, now I know why Sean had a colonoscopy. I never wanted to ask why cuz I didn't know if it was too personal or not. Anyways, I actually see that a lot where I work. I hope everything is ok with him... let me know if there is anything I can do for ya... I know kind of a stupid thing to say being here in AZ but I still like to offer. Sorry about your purse!

Sam said...

I hope Sean starts feeling better, I can understand you being worried for him. Sounds a bit scary!
From what I can see, Moses looks so much bigger now! What a cutie.
I don't properly take care of any of my belongings so I don't have any advice on good leather cleaning products. Good luck!

Rasha said...

Dude, that site is awesomeeee. Thanks for sharing!

Also,so sorry about he purse, i hate when I get things like that on important stuff... maybe google some leather protectant!

about the purse. i had an expensive leather purse. one that i felt like i'd searched my whole life for. then i got chocolate on it. there was a little grease-like stain. well, i tried to clean it with leather cleaner and only made it a million times worse. i think if i'd just left it, it would have blended in with the purse in time. so lesson learned. and now passed on. for whatever it's worth. which might not be a lot, but oh well. it's free advice. so whatever. now i am rambling, so i will stop.

Selma said...

So wanna see the movie. Love your weekend. Mine's over. Have to go back to work today. :( But I get Wednesday and Thursday off...haha. ;)
Again girl, so sorry about your purse. wish I could help but I'm useless when it comes to special leather purse remedies ;) :(

I know what you mean, my mate gave me a really nice coach purse for graduation and it sat in its pretty white bag with the gigantic red bow on top for a good five weeks before I felt I was properly prepared to take it out and about. My advice is to get the leather protectant spray that they use for Ugg boots? I don't have ugg boots but people say the spray works really well. Otherwise try the advice of a proper shoe/leather shop? Other than that just know that not using a bag is the same as it being worn out because either way it is useless! Hope that helps (smile).
X, Becca

sometimes my dog stares in to the mirror but at us - is so very creepy!

Becca said...

aww it sounds like the perfect weekend. you guys make me so jealous for being married; it sounds like you're such a sweet little family and have the best time.
and I'll be praying for sean and all this crappy medical stuff going on that is a little scary.
hope you have a lovely day, girl!

leigh ashley said...

i'm glad you're having a nice long weekend! hope sean is feeling better! and yes, a gym pass is definitely not as cute as your mosey! :)

The Boob Nazi said...

I thought you said YOU had an ultrasound. I almost died from shock.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Aw, I'm sorry to hear that Sean hasn't been feeling great recently. I hope he can get some relief soon. Glad you guys liked the movie.

Ams said...

Poor Sean :( I hope he starts feeling better soon. I was just studying this condition that he has and it doesn't sound fun at all. At least you all are keeping on top of it! That's the most important thing.

And I feel the EXACT same way about having Wilson - I am a lazy pile of poop most days. I just don't want to exercise. But I should. I really really really should. But since having Wilson - I have at least started to get out get a little bit active. THAT'S a good thing :)

Anyway - enjoy this holiday Monday :)

Kiara said...

I am so sorry about your purse! I don't know anything about nice purses... Sorry. I have a blogging question for you... Your header is so cute! Did you design it yourself? How would I go about designing one? I love reading your blog by the way!! Thanks for the laughs

i know a few people who have ulcerative colitis and i always feel so awful for them! it just seems so painful and horrible, poor things. i really hope sean feels better soon, he really is a trooper! sending lots of positive thoughts. :)

samnhal said...

I would google stuff about how to protect it and how to get the butter out...that's my answer pretty much for anything. That's awful that sean has colitis, it's a really hard disease. I don't know if this would help, but my mother in law is a colon hydrotherapist, and she is really into homeopathics and natural medicine and knows a lot about the bowels and what not. If you're interested I bet she would love to help you guys out.

Shane and Chelsea Elton said...

dang, that sounds pretty painful for sean. and you too--you never want to see your loved one in pain. but i think you guys are awesome and have the right attitude. from those pictures, moses looks huge already! don't kids grow too fast? ;)

Jenni said...

oh poor sean! I hope he starts feeling better soon! geez, everyone had some type of health drama this weekend! But I am praying everyone's turns out as lucky as ours did! PS-My pups are doing fabulously!

Oh and for leather protector, buy one at a shoe store. They make some great stuff for shoes since they are constantly trudging through muck and getting dirty!
