It's Official

I get to go up north to get my second opinion the week before Thanksgiving. Today was so beautiful, I went for a drive with the top down on the car. The fresh air, gorgeous sunshine...it was good for the soul. A shout out to Eric: He learned how to coupon/case lot shop over the last few weeks. He seems to really enjoy the challenge of saving a boatload of money during his trips to the grocery store. We are now well stocked! He even installed a can rotator shelf. He's my hero!

Fall Concerts

Andrea sang and danced with her special Vocal Essence group at the Fall Folk Festival, it was lots of fun...

Ryan had the opportunity to sing with High School Concert Choir and the Madrigals in the historic St. George Tabernacle, it was breathtaking...

Michael and Daniel performed dances from countries around the world at the Dance Festival. I managed to get to all of these, despite the current relapse. We can count our many blessings! I did see my neurologist yesterday. There is an active lesion in my left optic nerve...this is causing the fatigue, etc. It looks as though they want to send me to get a second opinion due to some abnormalities on my MRI scan. It could be MS related, but they are not sure. We will need to go up north to the University of Utah MS Clinic to see a neurologist that specializes in MS. Fun, fun, fun! The things I will do to get a little "vacation" up to Salt Lake City...

Driving Again

I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is to me. Being home "resting" is getting really old! I am still woozy, tired and get a little bit dizzy, but not enough to impair my driving. I will DRIVE MYSELF today to go see my neurologist. The optic nerve is looking good, according to my opthalmologist. I think we have seen the worst of this relapse. Each day is a little bit better, as long as I pace myself. I have started my 2008 family album and glad to have something to do when I'm "resting". Ryan is getting excited for Homecoming this weekend.
