Happy New Year

Happy, happy new year everyone! I am sorry for such a long hiatus. I think I needed a break from everything medical. Honestly, I even stopped tracking my labs and daily weight/temp/BP routine. I know, I know... But during these last few months, we have had some fun times! I have really been able to fully enjoy being with my family without being sick, and that is all I asked for.


River is doing great in school, and is a purple belt in karate now. Jason is working steady, and so am I... Well, I'm trying. About two months ago, I started getting sick again. I kept telling myself that it was just a bug, but it has continued to get worse. I don't think I am doing very well. My appetite is starting to go, I am nauseous, and have been swelling a lot. I hate to have to write that... I haven't even really told anyone in my family yet, but they know now I guess, well a few of them. Hehehe. I have an appointment with my doctors next week, but I am worried that my numbers have just raised to where the symptoms are back, and there isn't anything that can be done about that. Hopefully I'm just overanalyzing it. I do that sometimes. :) I'll just wait and see what they say.

Time is ticking though, either way, so I need to get on the ball with things. I need to spread awareness on organ donation (I might need another one) and liver disease. I need to keep learning healthier eating and living habits for my family. For Gods sake, I need to get organized, but most importantly is lots of quality family time. Not that I'm making any New Years resolutions, or anything.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I am so happy to be able to see so many of my friends and family be especially blessed with love or new life this year. I must admit though, the TWO new lives I am most excited about, aren't scheduled to be here until late May ❤ I know that some of you haven't had the best year, and a few have earned their wings, but hang in there guys, we can do it, after all, it's a whole new year!
