Coo-Coo for Tutus!!

Hear ye, hear ye! I finally have my tutu site up! I realize I haven't posted in a long time. A lot has happened since my last post. At that time I had a PICC line (permanent IV) to administer antibiotics to treat my Lyme Disease. I did really well at first! So I decided to do something to help pay for the extensive, slightly ridiculous medical bills. I started making tutus. Who would have thought that this tomboy would ever make tutus, and really enjoy it? It has also been a great hobby because it helps me concentrate on something other than the pain.

Soon after I started my business, my treatment went south and I was bed-ridden once more. After a few months of being really sick, my PICC line got infected with a staff infection that covered the space of my whole arm. So my treatment, again, had a speed bump. Soon after this happening, my husband lost his job because he, too, is incredibly ill and couldn't fulfill his hours. We are quite the pair! There was a period of time when we both were crawling around the house because we were too sick to stand! My poor little 5-year-old Cole learned much too early what its like to grab food or meds for mommy, or a bowl in case I need to throw up. He also learned that he can't wrestle too much with daddy anymore, so they would just read or color instead.  I am so proud of my little boy. What would we have done without him during this troubled time?

When Regan lost his job, we decided that enough is enough and moved back to Utah to be closer to family for help. We are living in Regan's sister's basement in Saratoga Springs, and we are both seeing a homeopathic doctor in hopes of getting rid of the toxins that all of the antibiotics left behind. Not too mention all of the worms and spirochetes left in my system. So far the treatment is kicking our butts, but we're just glad that we found someone that knows something about Lyme in Utah. Plus, having family to help means everything to us. I am so grateful for each and every one of them.

Anyway, I am a tutu-making machine, so please take a look at my website!!  I have listed many pics with prices.
