Happy New Year

Well the New Year is definitely upon us and it has come so fast this year. With being sick the last quarter of the year, it has literally flown by me. It was one of those things that I never would have thought that I would have STILL been sick in November much less in December and now into January!!

Well, I can tell you that I am glad I was born in the times of medicine. It is amazing what a doctor can do by combining them in such a way as to hold back a migraine so I can live an almost normal life. I am on a concoction of medicines am and pm and it has brought the level of pain now (scale from 1-10) to about a 3-4, where I used to be living with a 6-8 and visiting the ER and hospital fairly regularly...this was back in October and November...not fun!!

I have a new Neurologist who is a Headache Specialist and who is totally taking charge of my medical life...I like that. He tells me what test I need and who I need to see. His office sets up the appointment and I's great. Because, really, what do I know? If someone doesn't tell me what I need to do , how do I know?? I am totally relying on this guy to lead the way to my healing. And he's pulling out all the stops. I am getting more MRI's, seeing a NeuroOphthalmologist and more. Half the time I don't even know what I'm going there for, I just show up!

So...I am hoping for a Happy New about you? It's just starting out...there's lots of hope...I've got hope...I've been praying alot. My God has me in his hands so I am never alone.


  1. hey lady! I am glad you are feeling a bit better... I sure miss you!!!! You are always in my prayers!!!!!
