I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update ya'll in your faithful prayers. I crashed this week under a very bad time-of-the-month; the worst I've had in a long while, spending most of Mon. and Tues. in bed.
We did go to the ER Sun. night and although they couldn't directly explain the the sharp pains and dizziness; via the CT Scan, we did find out the hemorrhage had shrunk. So thanks to G-d for His work in starting to shrink it.
DH has felt better this week except for one big headache day yesterday and a lot twitching today; he was given a new neurological medication and we all see improvement- he was even able to load the D/W for me when I was down Mon. and Tues. We still haven't been to the neurologist as was intended as his massive headache this week ended up being on that appt. day so I'm praying for a sooner appt. than July!
Thank you everyone. If you remember, please lift us up as you feel compelled by The Spirit. There's still much to discern about the condition of his brain-any degradation problems that need to be explored further and strengthening himself through PT (that's coming to the house) to reduce his chances of falling. And of course, managing the finances with all the medical bills, which gives me stress since i'm the one that handles that.
On a personal note, over this past year, which has just been one thing with him after another, I've gained weight like I never have before and I just don't feel right, you know? I'm not content-it's only 20 pds., but it makes me feel sluggish and it's right in front, indicating it's related to stress hormones. My back was just a symptom that I've neglected certain aspects of myself that I need not do. Speaking of which, my back is feeling much better and I have a local chiropractor that I'm going to start seeing. So please say a prayer that I can take care of myself like I used to to feel good and look good to myself and feel the motivation to also continue my gardening as best I can, even if I have to downsize a little and participate in some farmer's markets for other things.
For schooling, I need to adjust and I don't think that'll be a problem except for my dh interfering during school-time (yes, it is interfering and he can't do anything to contribute-he's just THERE ALL THE TIME w/little to no impulse control, so he interupts a lot).
SO Mon. we MUST get back on schedule with waking up, doing chores and schooling; all which have slowly degenerated, mostly since Sept. We must have smoother days and a more orderly life again.
Blessings to you and w/much appreciation,
