Stronger

Recently, I sat across from my neurologist in her office waiting to find out the results of several recent medical tests. The numbness in my leg and hands had not improved, blood tests, several MRIs and an EMG test had been ordered and this appointment would finally reveal the diagnosis, at least I cautiously hoped. … Continue reading Stronger

Thanks to great deal on Amazon Prime Day and a thoughtful husband, I got a new tablet recently.

Strength for the New Year

2017 wiped me out. As I sit here on the first day of 2018, I feel worn out. Partly from the after effects of wonderful day with all three of my kids and their significant others yesterday. My "mama" heart was happy with all of her chicks in the nest for a few hours. It … Continue reading Strength for the New Year
