Ok, I know im slow on the update about my Dr. appt. But it was not great news anyways. Its is still a stage one which is good! That also means its not getting smaller grrrr. The Dr. gave me the same spill about losing weight blah blah blah...... So I go back in 4 months not 6 cause she did a medication change and wants to know how it looks between that time.

Well that was it for a 4 Hour doctor appointment ugh.
If any of you forgot what kind of tumor I have have here you go.

Signs and Symptoms Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is encountered most frequently in young, overweight women between the ages of 20 and 45. Headache is the most common presenting complaint, occurring in more than 90 percent of cases. Dizziness, nausea, and vomiting may also be encountered, but typically there are no alterations of consciousness or higher cognitive function. Tinnitus, or a "rushing" sound in the ears, is another frequent complaint. Visual symptoms are present in up to 70 percent of all patients with PTC, and include transient visual obscurations, general blurriness, and intermittent horizontal diplopia. These symptoms tend to worsen in association with Valsalva maneuvers and changes in posture. Reports of ocular pain, particularly with extreme eye movements, have also been noted.

You know the DRILL

Well I thought it is time to update whats been going in the life of the Barrett's.


Austin is doing awsome in school. They went on a tour last Thursday to Dicks Market and they gave him a bakery hat he just loves! He also told me that the "The freezer is cold and made me shiver" He is so funny now days! He is also doing very well at accomplishing his goals in his program that he is in. I am so proud of him!

Josh is such a happy kid he always has a smile on his face. But boy he can get into things lately!!!!! He is also a cuddler. I have started potty training him already im not pushing him but when Austin goes potty he is so interested in what he is doing so we put Josh on the little potty. He has not done anything yet but he thinks he is such a big boy when he is on the potty.


See what i mean what a STINKER!


I have a Dr. appt on Thursday for my tumor so i will give a small update that night on whats going on. I have been feeling really good the only problem i think i will have with them is i have gained weight so there going to be on my case about that.

This is PROOF that im a GEEK!!!
Thought I would share for a laugh

This was Superbowl night Lexie, Austin and Josh were sharing so good!

This is what Jason gave me for Valentines day

The boys gave me the panda Bear!

Utah Draper Temple

On the 4Th of Feb, Jason and I were asked by Nathan and Lindsey if we wanted to go to the Open House at the Draper Temple with them. So we did, It was so beautiful!!!! The feeling there was so comforting. I'm So happy that i was able to go and see the inside! I will never forget it! One of my favorite rooms was one of the Ordinance room because it had a mural painting like they took the pic out of my head and put it up on the wall. Afterwards they gave a us cookies and water. I just had to share how much fun i had!
