So it's been awhile. I have nothing profound. Just to share....

Ever since the stroke, I have had mild headaches. They have progressively gotten worse. I have recently had a CT of my head land they are thought to be tension headaches. They could also just be a result of the stroke. 

Tension. What is there to be stressed about? Haha.  I think they are made worse (caused?) by the way I have to hold my head/neck to read or look at my phone (there are muscles that are connected down through the shoulder) coupled with the increased tone and constant tremors. Nothing over the counter helps. Boo  

Every time I have a headache (which in the past couple months has been nearly constant) I think I am having another stroke (which is more likely due to the cavernous malformation). Talk about tension/stress. I have spent a LOT of time in prayer.

Join me in prayer that the cause of these headaches is found/confirmed and a treatment/solution is found!!

Two Years?!?

Well it's been two years since my stroke. I honestly forgot about it until my mom reminded me on the way to therapy. I had been thinking about our court date anniversary and Elijah's Family Days (the day he left the orphanage and the day we were together as a family). I just totally let the day slip from my mind. 

I was going to write a nice post because it's been so long...instead I had to put Elijah back in bed FOURTEEN times. Not an easy feat in a wheelchair. I don't know what's going on. Now I'm so doped up on muscle relaxers and prescription pain relievers (tension headaches) that all I want is bed, so you still don't get much of a post. :)

I have thanked the Lord many times today (as I do every day) for saving me two years ago. Join me in thanking him and praying for my continued healing.

Just a cute one...
