What’s old is new

I never know how to start these things so I’ll just start by saying HAPPY SUNDAY!!!

I bought a DSLR camera maybe 4 years ago and the pictures always came out grainy so I put the camera off to the side…until now.  I’ve been practicing with the camera and my first photos came out like this (and this was AFTER editing!!!):


As you can see, they are super grainy!!!  Ugh.  So I took to Dr. Google to try and figure out what I’m doing wrong and I’ve discovered that part of the problem is that my ISO was way too high.  So I lowered the ISO and took the camera out again:


I still have some work to do but it’s so much better, amiright??? 

While it’s nice to get out with the family and take pictures with the fancy camera, I still use the iPhone the majority of the time.

Let’s be real, the iPhone does take some pretty good pictures (not to mention you can fit it in your pocket)…


Anyway, for those that are curious, here is a health update: I got pretty sick for about a month after the hurricane hit – doctors actually thought I had mono but I tested negative for that.  After feeling better from my illness, I began having a really scary rapid heart rate.  When I would wake up in the morning, my resting heart rate would be about 100 (normal for me is 65) and it would go up to about 115-120 once I stood up; talk about being uncomfortable and scared!

I went and got blood work done but the doctors couldn’t interpret my results (my red blood cells were shaped all crazy and my bone marrow was releasing immature red blood cells) so they suggested I see a hematologist.  The hematologist diagnosed me with iron deficiency anemia and after taking the iron supplements for about a month, I am feeling MUCH better.  I still get bouts of dizziness/vertigo, but overall I’m on the up and up.  Meanwhile, my IVF had been put on hold so I could focus on feeling better but I’m back on track with that too (currently doing the daily injections, fun!).

Hope you guys have a kick ass week! 🙂
