A prayer answered

We have been praying that I would get into the neurologist soon. My original appt wasn't until April 29, but we have been calling every morning checking for no shows or cancellations. Yesterday to our amazement I got in!!!! He has ordered an MRI, and hopefully with that we can begin to get some answers. He mentioned MS or a seizure disorder as possible causes, but we don't have enough info yet to know.  He also agreed with David that as long as I am symptomatic....NO DRIVING! So pray for my symptoms to go away before David's spring break is over.

Good news is, I was able to make it to sacrament meeting on Sunday to watch the kids sing. It felt good to be there, but I was also very self conscious of my arm acting like it has a brain of it's own. It has now been 3 weeks so I am beginning to wonder.....is it going to go away?

Last Friday there was a change of the guards as my parents returned home and David's arrived. They have been wonderful. This is the kids spring break and they are doing a great job of keeping things fun for them.

Other things going on....

-The girls began practicing for their play at the high school and are absolutely LOVING it!

-Alahna got a new pair of glasses that are so dang cute I wish I wore glasses! I have pictures and will try to get them posted.

-Robert got a new pair of "army" framehuggers. We had lost the pirate one so he is a happy patcher again. (thank goodness!)

-William has officially hit the terrible two's. The nursery leader told David that he has become quite the little bully. Whatever happened to my sweet, shy little William?

-The girls and I have been reading Little Women together and after many tears for dear Beth and much laughter from topsy-turvy  (spelling?) Jo we finished it. Now I think we will start The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale

And now it is time for me to resume my position on the couch before my head gets any worse.


  1. We continue to pray for you and your family and send hugs across the miles.

  2. Glad to hear you will have some answers soon. I'm sorry you are having to go through any of this at all. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  3. I just read Little Women myself-again. We were all probably crying for Beth together! Love Goose Girl too! Have you read Princess Academy? I want to read that with my girls soon.
    I check in with my Mom about you often!
