They say...

Absense makes the heart grow fonder.

Well, I sure hope the saying is true.

It's definitely been a long absense, I know.  I'm just hoping that your hearts have grown fonder.

A quick update on this crazy unknown's progressed some; I did a crazy treatment of IVIG in early May and will do another in June; I'm waiting to go to the Mayo clinic in June to meet with the pros and see if we can get some answers.  I'm crossing my fingers and praying...a lot.

Alright, now for a much better (and fun) update...

May 19th I turned 32!  Eeekk.  I really have no idea how I got to be this age.  Seriously.  32 means I am officially "in" my 30's.  Wow.

My husband handled my birthday week, oh yes...a week, like a pro.  He was prepared for my erratic 32 year old behavior...filled with attempts to remain childlike and questions on what I have actually accomplished in my life.

Josh gave me a birthday card on Monday that was quite creative and definitely made me laugh.

It said...
X 2! = 32

He thinks he's so clever!  I have to give it to him was pretty clever.

He did surprise me with two really fun rings that I had ooohhed and aaahed over months ago.  They are sweet initial rings from Catbird NYC

I LOVE them!  I'm now sporting a "J" and an "N" on my hand.

I'm thinking that some alpha earrings would be quite precious for my 32nd and a 1/2 birthday, don't you?  Maybe ones with an "X" and an "O".  Two letters I'm quite fond of!

For my 32nd year on this earth, I'm praying for God to guide me and show me the purpose behind this crazy illness and life changing event.  Maybe He will and maybe He won't, but I know He's in control and there is a greater good and purpose behind all of this.  I'll remain faithful and continue to turn to Him for the answers and the comfort. 

For my 32nd year on this earth, I'm also feeling the love that surrounds me every day from my husband, family and friends...and all of you.  It's been an overwhelming feeling to check into my blog to see that so many of you are still loyally checking it weekly to see if and when I will finally post something.  It's like having an online hug every single week knowing that you are all still there.  Thank you so so much.

Alright, enough love fest stuff...

I'll just say...My cup runneth over!

Happy Wednesday!  I promise to be back soon.
