Well hello there 🙂
It would seem that I’m due for an update, hmm? Where to start… did I tell y’all about Georgia? Yes? So I still need to tell you about Arkansas. It’s a state in the union that’s presided over by Trump (there’s my Republican dig lol) But in all seriousness, the appointment went really well; all good news. I was so incredibly nervous between the MRI and seeing Krisht for the results that I had to take a Xanax, and then I was super doped up lol. I had sincerely convinced myself that all the tumor had come back and that I was going to have to be re-admitted to the hospital. I told Krisht this, and he said, “no 🙂 but well readmit you because we like you so much!” lol I politely declined. And he said I was looking really well. He tested my balance and walking and those were all good as well. We got to stay the first night there with our good friends Taylor and Tyler, the next night at Brandon’s grandparent’s house, ate a lot of good food and visited with his uncle Bruce, his cousin Wade and his wife Sydney and their daughter Addison, who is our flower girl. We also visited with wades younger brother, Noah, and Brandon’s parents. Then we went to the appointment on Monday, had lunch with Brandon’s other set of grandparents, and stayed with our friends Randi and Kyle. We played Cards Against Humanity and had loads of fun. We flew back the next morning which made everything a lot less stressful. Thank goodness for safe flights, good friends, and good family. Brandon and I are so blessed to have people who take care of us so well. And I’m so lucky to have a husband who cares for me so well. And such a loving Lord. I can’t forget to give all glory to God – he gives me all the blessings anyways.
Physical therapy is going very well so is occupational therapy. Everything is just trucking along nicely. My hand and tremors continue to improve as I taper down the steroid.
Yesterday I was thrown the most beautiful bridal shower by my aunts and female cousins and my one of my bridesmaids. It was so much fun and i really enjoyed getting to visit with everyone. Brandon and I received so many wonderful gifts and we couldn’t be more thankful. Truly, I loved it. I wouldn’t trade yesterday for anything.
The doggies are shedding their summer coats and getting their winter coats, which means an excess of dog hair on everything. Daddy’s and Nathanael’s birthdays are next week and then thanksgiving!!!:))))
This past Friday, I had my hair and makeup trial. It really made me feel pretty again and was such a welcome change. I am looking forward to the wedding even more now. That same day, I went to see a doctor for acupuncture. Let me make this incredibly clear – I do not enjoy acupuncture. If you know me at all, you know one of my biggest fears is anything involving needles. I had needles in my toes, in my feet, my shins, my arms, hands, ears, cheeks, eyebrows, forehead, and top of my head. Surprisingly, nothing hurt except one needle in my right foot.
I’ve felt pretty cruddy all day, I had to lie down in the back during church, but I’m feeling a little better now. Nathanael is sick today, so please pray for him to get feeling better. Mom seems to be managing her pain a lot better. Yay! Thank you Lord for her relief and thank you readers and prayer warriors for all your prayers. An update on fern: she seems to be handling her chemo well and was at my shower yesterday. Please pray that she has lots of peace and endurance. Also, Judy passed away this past week. Please pray for all of us dealing with her loss, especially her family.
In all the goings on, the joy, sadness, and confusion of this life, thank you God for your blessing of salvation through your perfect Son.
