Well, this past year was a whirlwind! I honestly don't know where to begin... In March of 2012, we decided we were going to move. (you can read that in my post moving update, it will explain it all) Spent about a year fixing it up. March of 2013 we decided to get our butts on the ball and get going. We moved all the necessities that day. And we are learning what we can live without. We have been paying for two houses for the past 10 months. In June of 2013, (the 24th to be exact) my Great g-ma passed away. There was a lot of stuff going on with our whole family, but somehow we all pulled together for her. Idk about everyone else, but I think I have taken it the hardest. I lost 20 lbs within two weeks. I got REALLY sick for a month. All of August I was no use for anything. They couldn't figure out what was wrong, but figured it was anxiety. I know that was it. My dad's last day of work was Father's Day of 2013, because of migranes. They found out that they were caused by Arnold–Chiari malformation. Type 1. They did surgery at Cedars Sinai Med. on November 5th. He stayed in the hospital for a week. Me and my mom drove home for that week, as we live over 200 miles away. Once he got home, he was doing pretty good. He had no pain for two months. He (as were we all) was sooooooo happy! BUT sadly as the third month rolled around, his pain returned. They are trying him on new medications, and doing all that they can but with no luck. To top it all off, he gets a call saying that if he doesn't go back to work by 2-15-14 that they're going to cancel him insurance. He is going back tomorrow morning. BUT me and my mother are worried that he will get dizzy on a ladder or something. So all we can do is pray. Hopefully, if he returns to his normal, and all of that good stuff, maybe, just maybe, he will start to heal more. Life has changed so much in the past year, hopefully this one is better... Sorry I haven't been on to update for a while, but as you could tell, we've had a lot on our plate... Anyway, hope all is well with all of you, and I will let you all know how his first day of work is! He's got a pretty ''zipper'' too!
