I realize that I owe a ton of updates, but I have had a really bad day today and so today is just not going to be that day.  Today I am just thankful for....

+ my husband. he really is so perfect to me.
sopapilla for dinner.
+ the amazing julep maven deal via jasmine. {I'm boho glam!}
+ my new ban.do phone case.
+ my husband {again} because he is watching downton abbey with me.
+ bulldog puppies. always.

I'll be back when I'm feeling more like me.

feelings like music.

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Some of the best songs haunting my ipod as of late....


Music always helps.

Recently, we had another scare with Brian's health. Due to his stroke-like symptoms he had back in December, we have had a lot of follow-ups with neurologists, oncologists, etc. None of that is ever easy and I think my stomach has learned to tie itself into knots, only to slowly unravel again afterwards. We have learned that he suffers from hemiplegic migraines {which create the stroke symptoms} as well as factor V leiden deficiency, basically meaning he is prone to blood clotting. Excluding some follow-ups scheduled for several months down the road, we have now taken all of the necessary steps that we can at this point, and have been informed that both of these issues are things that we will live with forever. I have now resorting to praying. Trying to replace the worrying with praying... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But since this is something that we will deal with for many years to come, I know that I can't stomach the worrying forever. So we're trying.

I want to thank everyone for your kind words and prayers and vibes as we dealt with all of this.  We appreciate it more than you know.  I am so grateful that my husband is healthy and with me everyday.  Watching him go through things like this is by far the hardest thing in my life.

Music is still helping too.
