schmeizures

It's been a while since I've updated you on my seizure...progress? Journey? Whatever, here's where we are today anyway. My second MRI came back normal. I started a new medication back at the beginning of July. Well, it made my heart do bad things so now I've started another new one, today in fact. And guess what...a side effect is a very serious rash. So if you come up to me in the mall or at church trying to embarrass me by asking about my rash...I just might actually have something to tell you in all honesty. Haha! Anyway, we'll see how this one turns out. Back to the doctor on August 4th for more questions and answers and who knows what else.

In other news, our small group is going on a float trip this weekend! We're heading to Talequah, Oklahoma to float the Illinois River Saturday. Well, technically everyone else will be floating and I'll be basking in all that Siloam Springs, Arkansas has to offer as my sister babysits me. (Due to my medication and the fact that I have little endurance, strength, and don't know how this new medication will effect me...I've opted out of the river.) It will be nice to finally get out of this apartment after nearly 11 weeks of white walls, this blasted couch, and the same 'ole thing. Looking forward to it!

As far as requests go, I'd like a rip roaring good thunderstorm. Haven't had a good day of rain in a while and I think it's about time.

Oh and our dishwasher broke and we're getting a new one. Oh apartment landlord luxury!

Tons of greatness mixed in here - woohoo for the new dishwasher! Yall should really blast one of those walls with some color!! Drugs suck, but hey, no more schmeizures right? :) I'll pray for a thunderstorm for ya - they are da bomb for sure.

I see its had a few days to work on ya - how's taking that new drug? I'm seriously debating going cold turkey again - I can't handle these daily migraines!!!

You should just punch, or bitch slap (more funny), any one that asks about your rash. Then say, "Sorry, seizure."

For the love of god don't go to that river on a weekend. I have been canoe/kayaking there since I was 5, and it is over run by beer brawling dudes and toothless, shirtless white trash chicks on the weekends. Plus you will drag you floatation device half the way this time of year.
