Where have I been?????

That’s a question I’ve heard for a bit lately from friends and fellow mommies on Mommies ‘N Babies. My answer….

I’ve been in bed.

I’ve had a hard almost week, I’ve been dealing with gallbladder symptoms yet again. Today is the first day in almost a week I’ve felt somewhat normal. I’m so thankful for that.

I discovered I had gallbladder disease in 2000. After being home for almost a week with what me and my parents thought was “Gastro”, it finally became too painful to just sit at home and do nothing. I ended up going to the Urgent Care center and they discovered I had gallstones.

I stayed in the hospital for almost a week, with Jaundice and a blocked bile duct. I didn’t have my gallbladder removed, they were able to go in and take out the stones without removing my gallbladder.

Every once in a while I get bursts of pain if I eat the wrong things etc. Never have I had a real ‘attack’ until this year. It wasn’t painful enough to go into the ER but it was and still is quite worrisome.

No insurance = no doctor to just go to and see. It seems to be subsiding today, which is great, I was hoping it was just going to pass and it seems that it may have.

I know eventually i’ll have to have my gallbladder taken out, but hopefully that’s not for a while, I hate doctor’s hate hospitals and definetly don’t want surgery.

So that’s my update, i’m still taking it easy, I just wanted to update my blog.

Be on the lookout for some upcoming reviews and giveaways that will be on there way once I’m feeling a little more ‘normal’.

Take care everyone!!!!

Get Sandal Ready Feet

Get those feet sandal ready ladies.

It’s getting warmer and those winter feet need to be shown the door. Hard, scaly, callused feet are not what people want to see with your sandals this season.
I suffer first hand to those ‘winter feet’. They’re dry and uncomfortable. Your heels are cracked and flaking, you need to get that fixed and quick.

I’ve tried so many foot creams, soaks and just using a pumice stone just to find that none of them give me that fix that I’m looking for for those winter feet. I ran into a product by Burt’s Bees and decided to give it a shot.

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream was the product. It’s a natural product and earth friendly which is what prompted me to give it a shot over those chemically induced products on the shelves.

The creams ingredients are coconut oil, lanolin and vegetable glycerin as well as natural rosemary and peppermint oils. These ingredients combined help refresh, revive and rejuvenate dry and uncared for feet.

I first soaked my feet as recommended on the product and lightly used a pumice stone after they soaked, then modestly applied the cream to both of my feet, especially on my heels where my cracks and callouses were the worst. Then, you slip on the socks to lock in the moisture.
Although I really hate sleeping in socks, I figured if this worked it would be a sacrifice I was willing to go through.

The cream itself smelled wonderful, a light scent of coconut. I did find the cream to be a little greasy on my hands, but easily came off with a wash in the sink after applying it to my feet, nothing to worry about.

I went to bed, socks on feet, and awaited the results in the morning. I can say that once I woke up, first thing I did was take those socks off. To my amazement because I was a little skeptical at first, my feet were so much better than they were the day before. They weren’t totally perfect sandal ready feet, but you could tell they were on the way.

I continued to use the product for the next few days and noticed a VAST improvement to my feet and heels. I also got my husband to give me a nice foot rub to apply the cream one night, that was a heavenly experience in itself.

I must say, I am so relived to have lost those winter feet, and am so happy to find a natural product that finally works well and lives up to what it says it will do.

I highly recommend getting some for those tired worn out feet of yours, get those feet sandal ready and enjoy the warm weather.

Product and information can be found at Burt’s Bees
