This is going to be shorter than usual but given all of you wonderful people who follow my story I just wanted to give an explanation for my/our absence. (plus fun photos) I’m really sorry it has been so long since I last wrote. I try to write once a month but have slacked this year. I’ve a bunch of post that I have started but can’t finish and I just wanted to let you know why.
Some of you know and some do not, but my health has not been good this year. Particularly in the last few months, I’ve been really sick. Since July I have had 8 infusion treatments, 2 ER visits, way too many doctor appointments to count, 2 CT scans, lots of blood work and a lot of unsure results.
The decrease in my health has made it really difficult to do the things I love. This especially includes writing because a fun new symptom is memory issues. Also my headaches are worse and the two make writing really difficult. It took me a while to write just this.
Anyway, we have a few new diagnosis ideas going around; but right now, I am trying to adjust to the new normal and getting better before I start sharing. I know I share a lot, but I’m still trying to process everything and will share in due time. The main addition to my medical chart is nothing bad, and explains a lot. A few things are being reconsidered as true diagnoses. No one can ever agree on labels because some invisible illnesses are hard to diagnose. The other big issue is just me being sick and my immune system sucking.
On top of my health, life has been really busy but that’s good. Nothing else new to report from this house. Man, without my medical issues we would be down right boring. Okay, that’s a lie, we have two dogs and they are always interesting. Do not ask about the incident involving three dogs and 4lbs of raw hamburger. It’s a sore subject.
That’s all for now, but hope to be back soon. as always, I hope all of you are well too. Stay strong

Here is just a funny to read picture if you want. It’s exactly what going to the doctor/hospital is like.
