As you can see, it has been a couple months since I last posted. I had a small stroke the end of May... it put me out of work and pretty much out of everything for a while! I could barely get out of bed at times! I was unable to use the computer~ it affected my hands and also my eyes were so bothered by the monitor (and still are, just not as bad~ I limit my time)! During the first couple weeks I was in and out of the hospital a number of times, Troy missed work to take me to doctors and to just make sure I was ok. I realized one day that my life could end at anytime! I also was reminded that I am lucky to be as healthy as I am... I am able to work, able to help support my family, able to do things for myself! I became terrified during this ordeal that I could end up having to quit my job, stay at home, lose my ability to drive (therefore losing any independence I have!). That just was not an option to me! I pushed myself to get better, I slowly got back to where I could work 40 hours a week.
All of this was only possible because of my faith in God and all the praying I did, and thanx to my wonderful Troy for being there for me, believing in me and supporting me.
I am happy to say, now three months later I am almost 100% better! I still have small lingering affects of the stroke, but for the most part they don't really effect my day to day life. I trust that God will protect me from harm... unless it is meant to be, and I trust my husband to always watch out for me.
It has been a wonderful summer, and a full summer! I will soon add posts and pictures of rides and other things from our summer. A lot of time was spent with my daughter Kayla, a lot spent at work, and as much as possible with friends! All of whom have been a great blessing to me, as well as to Troy. Everyone was so helpful and supportive through my recovery, and continued to keep my spirits high. I thank you all! I love you and God Bless!
