Howdy Doody ladies and gents. How are you today? I'm crampy, but good. So far today I've gotten a package in the mail, ate, did a bit of work, and now I'm blogging for you. I didn't get to do my nails yesterday (or today so far), but I do have a few a things to show you and talk about! One of these things is something very, very important to me and I would appreciate it if you would take the time to read about it.
One of the charities that is extremely near and dear to my heart is Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. When I got sick at the age of 12, if it was not for the care that was provided to me by CHOA I would not be around to talk/blog/entertain you all today.
When I first got to CHOA on April 1st, 2002 I was in danger of dying. By the time the ambulance got me downtown I had about an 104.7 degree fever and was beginning to get delirious. My MRSA infection had started to permeiate into my blood stream and if they had not caught my sepsis the MRSA could have continued on to my vital organs and caused major damage and possibly death. After I was cleared to start physical therapy, the therapists at CHOA were amazing and helped me with everything.
I always remember the 6 weeks I spent in CHOA and how every doctor, nurse, aid, basically anyone who I came in contact with was amazingly wonderful and made such a horrible experience a little bit more tolerable. So, when my friend Haley explained how she was raising money for CHOA through UGA Miracle I automatically knew that I would be donating.
Haley decided that she was going to sell handmade bracelets to reach her goal. Each bracelet is $10 and let me tell you I love this bracelet. Normally I hate having things around my wrist because they are tight and uncomfortable, but Haley some how managed to get the sizing just right without knowing my wrist measurements. If you would like to help out sick children and get an amazing bracelet, please comment, email me at jasnellings [at] gmail [dot] com, or if you know Haley contact her directly. I cannot express how much this would mean to me and to the children that utilize the services that UGA Miracle makes possible by donations.
The second thing I have isn't quite as philanthropic of me. Last time I went to Sephora with Sarah I got a little sample of Josie Maran Argan Oil. This oil is similar to Moroccan Oil and helps with hair, nails, and skin. I used a little bit on my hair on Sunday and it made it extremely smooth after my first use. I'll be using it again next time I wash my hair after my dye sets tomorrow afternoon in my appointment. I'm so excited for tomorrow and my "new" hair. Hopefully I'll get a good photo for you guys!
See yah tomorrow with a new do!
