In Which Isaac Is Doing Well And I Go To The Doctor

There are several things I've learned the past few months.....

Who my real friends are. I've even made new friends in the journey. 

How important my family, especially my husband is to me.

Feeling good, thinking well and finding joy is more important than anything money can buy. 

It's Ok that I currently can't be or do the things I'm used to doing. 

It's Ok that I'm the one who has to go to the Doctor. 

So what happened? Back in October I started having awful physical symptoms that was possibly triggered by anxiety. This went on for many weeks. I went to counsellors, doctors, was prescribed this and that. I finally crashed and burned in November I had to get treatment. My husband had to juggle Isaac's care, the nursing schedule and taking Autumn here and there. Not to mention during that time our city had a blackout from a 70 mile an hour wind storm so Sam was taking on helping family members and their homes. I came home right before Thanksgiving. I have lots of physical symptoms, mostly related to the meds or lack of adequate rest. It feels like a long road ahead to recovery. Many people have said it will get better. 

Isaac is doing well through all of this. He's getting so big and has a big boy look. He is enjoying having the teacher and therapists come to see him during the week. Winter is hard because we don't get out much. 
We had a good Christmas, even though I wasn't feeling quite like myself. Oh and during all of this suddenly my beautiful daughter grew up! 

Thanks for the continued prayers.
