2011 Already...

Once again I ask, "where has the time gone". I have been thinking back a lot on 2010. I could say that I had hoped for a better year, but then I realize how very thankful we are. This year has been full of bumps in the road, but through all of that we have had a very blessed year.

On the Chiari front Wesley has continued to not do well. Two more surgeries and four hospitals stays. A infection that would not go away, but we think has finally left. Lots of prayers and tears.
But, so many things to be thankful for. Kyra has stayed fairly well. I got an amazing job that I have always wanted to do. The kids have been healthy and safe. Wesley is still with us. And I know I could go on.
I wonder what 2011 will bring? I know I have many goals I will share later. We have many plans that we hope happen.

Me and Wesley have had a lot of hard times in 2010, but we are now closer. He is an amazing strong man. Everyone says how strong I am. But, my close friends know of all my hard times. There have been many times that I wanted to get in my car and drive as far as I could, change my name, live a new life. I have wanted to leave Wesley many times, thinking I just could not handle it all anymore. God always puts me back on track. I truely believe it is God.
We are so blessed by our family, church family, and friends. So much help, prayers, and thoughts. Thank you to all. Whoever actually reads this blog, ha.

An Update: Wesley has been home for a while now and just went back to work. He is working midnights and we are adjusting. The infection seems to be gone. Headaches are still his enemy, but he is learning to live with them, like a lot of Chiari patients have too. He is a trooper.

I have been having some tummy issues and are actually going to the doctor today. It maybe my gall bladder, will keep you all updated. I am being told there is nothing to getting it removed. I really do put myself on the back burner and I feel that I have no time for this, but after much pain the last few days, I know I need to listen to God and get something done if needed.

The kids are doing well. Pretty much all the sick bugs have stayed out of our house. Kyra is still having headaches off and on. It is time for her yearly Chiari check up and I am not looking forward to it. We are looking at a new doctor, will keep everyone posted on that.

We did manage to get our family photos completed, after having to cancel once. Our neighbor is amazing. Here are a few.

Pictures are always a task, but I am so happy when we get them done.

I hope to be more blog friendly. Stay Tune :)
