Back to Life

Well I'm back at work. Everything has been going fine. Life is normal, except for a migraine every now and then. But things are good in our neck of the woods. Robert has started school again, 2 days a week and I am finishing up my externship with ABC and will hopefully be done this June. Robert has thought about joining the program with me. I hope he does eventually. He does really well with the dogs at the rescue and knows the info. He has been learning along with me. It would be great if we were team trainers. I got some business cards if anyone wants any to pass out and I ordered t-shirts for Robert and I to wear. So exciting! I even had my business name copyrighted. My lovely friend and hair stylist gave me extensions so I have long hair now. That's about all I have to report on.

MRI Results

Normal. Now what? I'm still in pain. I know I can always dope the pain, but honestly I want my life back not on pain killers and find out whats causing the pain.

Doctors Orders

So on my way to work this morning my migraine escalated. To bring you up to date, I have had a migraine for 7 days straight and was given a new RX. Well today seemed worse and the pain has just exhausted me. So I called my new Doctor to ask if this was normal, she told me to come in right away.

She told me that this was not typical, and that for the next 2 weeks we will need to run a series of tests to find out what's going on with my head. She told me to take a 2 week leave of absence from work and go on disability. I really hope I don't lose my job, but I can barely function with all this pain. My blood test came back normal and tomorrow I will be having an MRI and I just pray the results are normal as well.

Migraines = Memory Loss

Memory loss is real.

Migraines are real.

And both are ruining my life.

My sanity has left my head.

New Years!

New Years Eve was a good night for us. We first went to The Hat for dinner. We shared wet fries and an orange bang. The we went to The Lodge to see the KMJ Experience Band, then headed over to a friends house for good clean fun playing games and eating all the food I could fit in my stomach. We didnt get home until 1 or I really cant remember.

On New Years Day we went to the rescue ranch and worked on training the 2 new pups we have. Harley the Black Lab is so good, he learns so quickly I know he will be a great dog and will get adopted soon. Belle the brown spotted Dalmation is a bit timid and only trusts Robert. We think she may have had a traumatizing past, so Robert will continue to work with her so she isn't a "disposable dog". After the rescue we took Oscar & Link on a walk at the park. Link was a naughty boy and did not listen. Just more training is all he needs. That night we saw Marley & Me with "The Voge". It was such a good movie but so sad. We all cried, the entire theatre was in tears. I do recommend this movie, but not in a theatre. Rent and watch at home so no one else will see you burst into tears. Robert read the book, he said he cried more in the book because it goes into much more detail. Both highly recommended for the dog lover within. If you dont cry, you are heartless.
