Hey y’all! I hope you all are doing well. Thought I’d do a little post on what we’ve been up to lately and I’ll give you an update on what’s going on with my health and I’ve some results to share. But first… here’s what we’ve been up to lately.
Thursday my mom took the kids to gymnastics.
My first steroid infusion was Friday and I really thought I was going to have lots of energy afterwards, but that wasn’t the case for me. I came home and crashed. My family helped out with the kids while I rested. Friday night I did manage to get out and go to Gage’s last basketball game, it was Senior Night. It’s so hard to watch all of his “lasts” in high school, but I’m really excited for his future. Now we get ready for baseball season!
Saturday my mom and Kristian took the kids to Chuck E Cheese.
Sunday was church.
Paula, Dave, Tom , and Kristen came to visit us.
Monday while the kids were at school, I got my second steroid infusion. I was pretty disappointed and discouraged after my first infusion. It made me feel extremely tired and I didn’t feel like it changed anything, I was still numb. Almost my whole body was numb. Even my ears were numb. But thankfully, the second infusion had some positive results. My legs and feet are not numb anymore. And my stomach area is gaining feeling back!!! 🎉🎉🎉 I’m so thankful to finally start seeing some positive results. 😃
Because I am responding well to the steroids, my doctor decided to extend from 3 infusions to 5 infusions (I got my third infusion today.) I’m going to take tomorrow off and will get the last two infusions on Thursday and Friday.
I also got some test results back, and everything was normal. My spot on my spine is benign! So I’m incredibly thankful for that good news. However not all the test results are back, I’m hoping we’ll know more by Thursday or Friday.
Thank you so much for all well wishes, thoughts, and especially prayers. You will never know how much it means to me to have so many people praying for me. When I was feeling discouraged this weekend, I thought about all of you out there praying for me and I was filled with so much peace. I know God is in control and no matter what, everything is going to be okay, I’m just impatient and want to be better now and want answers now. So please keep those prayers coming. ❤️
Also, Tessa and Mia are feeling better!!! So thank you for praying for my babies as well! 💕
