Long time away

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I've been gone such a long time. Had issues with the site and life just got in the way for awhile. My life has been a bit like season 47 and the writers are getting desperate for new material but things seem to be settling down a bit so it's time to come home. Missed all of you!

Thanks everyone! It's a bit overwhelming and a lot but here goes:

 

Family is doing well for the most part now after a few years of some rough stuff. We had a really rough patch a few years ago and went to marriage counseling which helped a lot. Then my husband had sepsis last May and several surgeries so we feel very blessed to still have him with us. He has spent the last year just getting back up to his baseline and now walking 10000 steps daily. Still looking for a job 6 yrs out of the job market. It's depressing, but he's been working with the job source people and getting weekly help to try to get employed. Thank goodness I love my job and can financially support us.  

 

I have also had some health issues, went to the ER last fall with chest pain/abdominal pain and had a strange EKG that showed some abnormalities but not a heart attack. Saw cardiology and they are evaluating if I have Brugada Syndrome a rare potentially fatal genetic defect in the sodium channels of the heart. I have been undergoing tests and will be seeing a specialist in LA on May 4th to have the final testing to confirm if I do actually have the condition or not. If not then no worries, but if I do then I may need an implantable defibrillator and my kids will have to have annual EKG's to see if they are also at risk. Super scary but I have had enough time to process this that's I'm feeling quite calm about it. Still working full time.

 

My oldest finished college awhile back and is living nearby with her boyfriend of 10 yrs and his mom and looking for a job. My oldest son is in his last year and a quarter of college and will finish up next spring with a degree in computer science. Middle son is taking his last GED test next friday and has 3 of the 4 completed. He wants to find a job as soon as he's done. So we are very excited about that. Next youngest is homeschooling 10th grade and Ben is in K this year and just turned 7. He's a handful but a joy. So busy and trying to get life back on track!

So sweet to come in and see still another old friend posing an update. 

 

Becca_Anne, I have wondered how you are, and I'm sorry you have had difficulties and worries, but  I'm happy to see your update.

 

 I continue to pray for everyone here, knowing  God has each of us in His hands, so we can leave the details safely with Him. 

 

I can't seem to get the  Emoticons to work for me tonight, but please consider yourself  hugged and  loved.

Sorry Cat, I was working on an update.  It should be fine by now.:cheeky-smiley-067:

 

Ok, I'll need to post an announcement, there are tons of new emoticons on the list, but our specialty ones are near the bottom of the list.......  :0327:

How did your test go?

It came back positive meaning I have it and will need genetic testing and a defibrillator. My kids will all need testing. I was so hopeful it would be negative. A bit overwhelmed and anxious but coping ok for now.

I'm sorry your tests came back positive. I know you were hoping for different results. Praying that your children will test negative!  :pray:

Becca Anne I am so sorry it wasn't the best of news!  Hopefully the defibrillator will make a big improvement for you.
