Little Bit of Disappointment, So Glad I'm Headed to Vacation
I received a little bit of disappointing news from my doctor's office this morning. If you've been following me, you know that I have been spending this time in my life making some medicine changes and praying for wellness from these persistent "electrical storms" in my brain. I was blessed to start a brand new medication that was just approved by the FDA. As I've gone down on one of my other medicines, I've noticed that I don't need to sleep nearly as much, my dreams are coming back - and in color, and I've started to think a bit more clearly. Our goal was for me to be completely off the old medicine, and on the new. However, I found out this morning that I just am not going to be totally off that other medicine. The new medicine is just not totally helping me. I am very sad about this and so disappointed. That leaves me with 5 medications and an implant to try to control this pesky condition.
Now I don't want you to get me wrong. I am so wildly blessed in my life. I consider my life rich with wonderful family and friends. An adoring husband and fabulous son. I get to play with my pets, craft every day, and cook for my family at night. God has looked down on me and given me the best of all things at this time in my life.
However (oh there's that word), I get a little tired and nauseated from all the medicines, this has altered my life, and I have been forced to make so many changes. The biggest of all not being able to drive!
Still and all, I will do nothing but count my blessings. God is so faithful and true.
So Jerry and I are leaving on Saturday morning to go on vacation for a week. What perfect timing! The picture at the top is a view of Gull Lake at the Quarterdeck Resort. I am so looking forward to listening to the waves lap on the shore, being out in the boat while the sun shines (and catching more fish than my husband - SHHH!), and hearing the loons in the morning.
We are leaving Shane in control of the house and my sweet cat, and Chanel is going on vacation to Stone Mountain Lodge for pets. I think Shane is quite happy about this week and having the house to himself.
I am not certain if I will have wireless up there, so you probably won't see me post for a week or so. I'm bringing some supplies up there for the quiet times, so I will be creating while I'm gone. I'll have much to post when I get back. The day after we come back, I'll be going to Archiver's for a crop with my MIL. Life is just so much fun!
Have a good week, everyone! And if you think of it, I covet your prayers for my medical issues. Enjoy the summer sun, and treat yourself well!
