Holiday Madness, Updates, and Ramblings

I apologize for the scarcity around here. Things have been just a little more than crazy lately. Here’s the latest update:

  • I’m not sure if you remember or not, but when Gage was younger, the doctor discovered he had a hydrocele. This week, I had to take him back for a follow up visit with the doctor to see if he’ll need to go back to the specialist and schedule a surgery. I am happy to report that his hydrocele is healing on it’s own, and it looks like surgery will not be necessary. The doctor will continue to keep an eye on it at his well visits, but as of right now, things look great! Praise the Lord.
  • I am still dealing with very painful attacks, even though I have been on a Vitamin D regimen for  some time now. My next step is to visit a neurologist. I can’t even begin to tell you how nervous I am about that. But, something has to be done. The attacks are getting so painful that I cannot function when one happens. Gene and I spent yesterday running around town, and I had to spend most of the time in the car in tears because I was in so much pain. I’m really hoping I can get some answers soon.
  • My husband is also falling apart. {Might as well do it together!} He went in for blood work and x-rays on both knees yesterday. It’s looking like surgery will be in his very near future. Yippee.
  • Since that’s not enough going on, Gene and I are looking to move into a new house next month. It’s so much bigger than where we are right now, and it’s about 5 minutes from our church – which is where we spend most of our time anyway. It will put him farther from where he’s working now, but we firmly believe it’s a move for the better. Plus, it will also put me less than 5 minutes from my best friend, so I’m thrilled about that. We’ll find out this coming week when we’ll be able to move in and everything.
  • Then let’s throw in all the added stress of the holidays. For some reason, my Christmas spirit has gone kaput. There’s just so much going on right now that I don’t even want to think about the holidays. I just want a nap.

So, if I disappear for a day or two here or there, I hope you’ll understand and will continue to check in around here. I’m not running off, I just might not be able to log on as much as I’d like to until things calm down.

Give me some good news…. what’s going on in YOUR life right now?
