Prayers please (and a couple of pictures)

I am so freaking tired today.  It is almost 9 am and I’ve been up since 5.  I had to take Eric for an EEG this morning.  He has some stuff going on and he saw a neurologist last week.  He has a history of seizures so the neuro thinks he is still having seizures (he is currently unmedicated for it).  His cognition just isn’t what it should or used to be.  He had been previously diagnosed with ADHD, which was something I’ve never been completely convinced was the problem.  The neuro doesn’t think so either, at least not to this extent.  Please pray, send good thoughts, energy, etc., that this is just seizures.  I’m really scared to think about the other things that could be going on if it isn’t.  I’m not sure how long we’ll have to wait to find out the results.

Last week when I went to Dr. M’s seminar, I printed two ‘before’ pictures and took them with me.  One was my ‘before surgery’ picture, which is here.  The other is a picture from last Christmas.  I guess Eric snuck it in because I generally avoided cameras or at least preferred to be behind the camera until recently.  This is one that I should tape up on my refrigerator, cabinets, etc., so when I get tempted to snack or something, I am reminded of where I never want to be again.

Blah…ok, on to better things. LOL  I got a new camera (yay!) and I was playing around with it this morning after the kids went to school.  I took this picture as my new avatar shot.  Much better, I have to say.  😉

    Oh you should be so proud, what a difference! Don’t allow yourself to get stressed because that is always a precursor to eating. Stay positive and always keep those before pictures near by. Good luck and enjoy the time while the kids are in school. A good time for exercising or taking a walk. I will pray for you and your lovely family. Congrats. Again!

    Consider yourself/loved one/specialist ‘BLESSED’ during this time of discovery/diagnosis/treatment.

    Great difference in the photos — you’re doing sooooooooo well. Every reason to be proud of all your hard work!!
