I'm still here (believe it or not!)

For those of you who might still pop in once in awhile to read my blog I apologize for not keeping it updated. I am still struggling with health issues and have not been feeling up to posting. After several trips to doctors and the ear, nose and throat doctor they have told me they think that my symptoms are related to my Arnold Chiari Malformation and have referred me to see a neurologist. I have an appointment in December and am hoping to get some answers and help.

For those of you who do not know what Chiari Malformation is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold-Chiari_malformation

In addition to feeling lousy, October was a busy month. I used all my energy to keep up with my very active 3 year old. Lily had a wonderful time trick or treating. She was so exhausted she fell asleep on top of her treats.

Next up Thanksgiving. My sister, who usually hosts our family holidays will be spending Thanksgiving with her girls in Illinois. Her eldest daughter Sarah is expecting her second child on December 6th, exactly 1 year apart from her first baby! I will be having my brothers over for Turkey dinner and am looking forward to spending the holiday with them.

Lily is already excited about Santa Claus and Christmas......it is going to be so fun for her this year!

Until next time........sunshine & peace, Jen
