I can't believe it's been 3 months since my last post! So much has happened and it's finally time to share the goods. Where to start? I guess the best place is the beginning, it's not pretty but there's a happy ending...
Dec 12th - Ouch! I was in agony with degenerative disc disease in my lower back. Two nerves were crushed, the vertebrae was disintegrated and twisted, and a bone spur was wreaking havoc. Needless to say, happy things were few and far between.
Jan 12th - GO SPINAL FUSION! Thanks to a great surgeon, I was able to have an amazing spinal fusion (4 screws & 2 plates). Against all my rules and even though it's pretty embarrassing, I've included a pic of myself and the screws. I figure a picture is worth a thousand words and my bionic-ness is pretty cool.
Feb 28th - First Evensong church service in Chattanooga! It was great with lots of amazing folks. Plus I'm creating an arts-based Sunday school program for the kids - yay! I'll try to post the projects as we go...
March 14th - And here we are. MG is, as she would say "stronger and longer" and loving school. She's graduated to "squiggly braids" and is quite proud of them. McB is 9 months, crawling (actually almost walking), has his first tooth and is talking a bunch. So fun! I'm in physical therapy and trying to take it easy inbetween kids and work. Which is easier said than done. I'm also trying to get back to real life - friends, fun, designing, etsy, creating and house shopping. My brain is on overload with new children's pattern ideas and I can't wait to get back to everything!
Check back if you have a moment, you never know what you'll find... love and happiness to all!
- HAPPY RECOVERY, HAPPY BACK, HAPPY LIFE -
