Sure did miss u...glad ur DS and DH are ok after that accident....
WOW so EDS huh?....I know if u have it and u get a patch that is not ur own skin it can cause all sorts of problems.....I am so happy u have a Dr that is so knowledgeable...and so on top of things checking on u....
I hope u can keep us posted....and I would love to catch up with u soon <3
I want your doctor!!!!! ANd glad they are on the mend.. motorcycle accident can be really bad :( What new symptoms were you having that caused you to get looked at again?>
HEYYYYYY Selma, I have missed you as well. Going to try and pop in more often now that my laptop is fixed it wont be as hard too. I hate using the mobile site, it drives me BONKERS !! lol. Yeah, EDS, I go for all that testing too next week, even though Dr. Richter said he doesn't even need to test it because apparently it is very unnatural for a 30 year old woman to still be able to pop into a spilt ( right left or stratle) at any given time without first stretching. I thought everyones thumbs bent backwards, lol.
Grinlixie, this is my 4th NS. The last one I had I loved but he retired, which lead me to find Dr. Richter at the Challiciual clinic ( I think that is how it is spelled) I started having some numbness in my hands and feet again, and started getting those instant headaches whenever there is a valsalva maneuver involved, as well as this horrible vertigo and a new head pain not pressure but sharp constant pain on the right side of my head as well as the pressure once again. Honestly I was also looking for my 1 year follow up too. The day I went in last week, I was having probably my worst day since surgery, so he got to see first hand what I was experiencing. My first post op MRI was 3 months ago and it showed a herniation of 17 mm. Now that is better than the 3 cm I was and there is a lot more room, but something is blocking the flow. This is why he thinks there is something else involved. He said there has to be a reason. The good thing is that he actually knew my previous NS very well, and has a lot of respect for him. He said that my decompression was textbook perfection at it's finest. That says a lot. Anyway, My hubby and I realize just how blessed we are to have such a slight injury from the accident. We know just how bad they can be. The lady literally just hit his leg, he never even dropped the bike, and there is not a scratch on it or my ds. Hope you all have a pain free day!
Selma, what is the latest update on you? How have you been feeling? How is your beautiful DD?
Big NEWS !!! She is moving back to PA...closing on the house is Aug 15th and moving day is the 17th...so I am beyond happy : D
The house they purchased is beautiful....huge, it has a large yard for little Lucy (dog) to run around....and for me to putter in a garden ....lol....
I am going to miss NYC but I am sure DD and I can go visit like we did when she was younger...lol...
Me...well this a roller coaster ride as u know, and with TCS and EDS I do have some issues that at times need strong meds....but other then that , I am drawing floor plans for the redo of the kitchen in DD's new home....lol...I am keeping busy with sewing and painting like b4....just can not wait for her to be here.
YEAH !!!! I am so happy for you :) I know how close you two are and it so nice that you two will be close again :)
How awesome to be able to draw up the plans for the kitchen . That was what I went to college for , home design.
I pray for you always Selma. I know it can be hard on you at times, but you do such a great job of pushing through. I have learned a lot of acceptance. I went through the denial, and am ready to just kick butt and take names now,lol. I'm still sewing and crafting and still have my business. My products are now sold in stores :) My latest venture is I started making memory foam handmade roll up nap mats that have and flip up memory foam pillow and attached blanket. It all comes apart for easy washing of the fabric and easy cleaning of the memory foam and they are a HIT !!! I have had 7 new orders overnight, I may have to hire someone to help :( It is prospering though and my kiddos are doing great . Paris is starting her 5th year of dancing and she has moved up to a more advanced class...and the boys are gearing up for football now. Cheer season is upon us as well, and we are ready (Paris and I) to take it on and make this a winning season. Coaching these girls has been such an eye opening experience. They are walking with me for Chiari walk this year in city park :) Now that is a serious support system little girls all walking beside me. I am just so thrilled for you that your DD is coming home !! I cant wait to see the pics of the new house :)
U r selling ur items in stores !!! WOW....amazing, u have been busy huh? I thought just with ur kids and their activities....but goodness u have ur own stuff going on....u still making the bows?
I am soooooooooo impressed...and want to see pics.....
My recent move to making head pieces and hats was making a few hats for my niece's kids, and I did post a pic.....I am in the process of trying to find more millinery products, like the wire, ribbon and a hat block....lol...
I have a bride that wants a fasinator, in black.....so I am going to purchase the bird cage net and satin to work on it, but I want to get all the other items, so I know how much and what it will look like....lol...
I know u will kick butt....sorry u have this set back....as it can slow down the healing if u should need another surgery...praying it all works out.
I need to see pics of ur DD's latest dance recital....last yrs costume was so cute <3

Storms are bad here, its our monsoon season. So the whole day is about the pressure increasing in order to get the rain = no bueno for my cabeza!! heat and humidity are pretty nasty...but, probably nothing compared to LA!
Are you selling like crazy, or at a steady pace to keep up with?
