Yep, time certainly does go by fast and I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back to my blog. The last several months have been filled some exciting moments so I guess I will rewind some. I did start on Rebif (an injection 3 times a week) at the beginning of August and I'm very thankful that the side effects have been much more manageable than I anticipated. Also, several months before I found out that I would have to stop my other medication (a simple little pill), Casey forced me to face my fears of shots by making me give him his allergy shots. What a blessing that turned out to be! Thanks honey! I've continued to have a few minor relapses, nothing disabling just bothersome. For those of you who have heard my story or know me personally, I coasted through my first 6 years of being diagnosed with only one relapse. The next 2 years followed with some major relapses followed by getting almost back to normal. So, I haven't experienced a period of time before where I keep having these small, but constant waves of MS issues for this length of time. At times I wonder what the future will hold with all the damage that has been done, but then I remind myself that it's not for me to worry about! I was fearfully and wonderfully made. My Creator didn't make a mistake when He gave me MS and "my flesh may fail, but my God, You never will." (Give Me Faith - what a powerful song.)
Another awesome thing that happened about 2 months ago is I retired from my job! Ok, so I'm a little young to retire, but I don't like to say I quit! :) Now, I have the best job ever which is being a full time mom! I absolutely love being with my kids and watching them grow up although its happening way too fast! Tyler turned 2, and Brooke recently turned 3!!!! I just love my babies so much!
The beginning of this month Casey and I had the opportunity to go to Greece on a mission trip. I think that is going to need its own post because there is just so much to say about it. We were truly blessed to be able to go while both set of grandparents were excited to keep the kids while we were gone.
So there, I think I've caught up! I will try not to wait so long to write again, especially about Greece. I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed day!
