Four Months

Today is 4 months exactly since my Acoustic Neuroma removal surgery and the last several months have taught me a lot. I’ve visited places in me that I had no idea existed. Some of those places have been good and some I hope never to revisit. I’ve faced fears over being rejected because of my […]

Up and Down

So today I’m going to go all David on you …. For those that don’t know who David is, he was a guy in the Bible who God said was,”a man after God’s heart,” but he was super bipolar. One moment he would be extremely depressed crying out to God for relief and then the […]

Back on the wagon

I know it’s late and I know I just posted yesterday, but I wanted to take a minute to tell people that are praying for me that I had a really great day today. I’m hoping this is the mental corner I’ve needed to turn this time around. I was able to stay awake all […]

Home Again

Hello all … I wanted to update everyone and say thank you for all the prayer and encouragement while I was in the hospital. I can definitely say that this last stay in the hospital (which will be the last time I ever stay in a hospital… Seriously) is something I have no idea how […]

Back to the hospital

Thank you for everyone that began praying for me a couple of days ago when I updated you all. I wanted to bring you up to speed … Yesterday morning at about 4 I woke up with severe nausea and a massive headache. I knew immediately I needed to get to the hospital. We arrived […]
