I have not been on medhelp since June when I had lyme disease! I work at a residential treatment facility in the Columbus, OH area! after getting lyme disease, I was slammed into a wall by a 16 year old resident twice my size and got a concussion. After that, work was pretty uneventful. In July, ashtyn had surgery to remove a lesion from his face. So he has a big scar across his cheek. In october, I transfered from the teenage girl unit to the co-ed children's unit (ages 10-13). On Oct 30th, I had to return to the girls unit for a shift. Late in the evening, I was hit in the face with a broom causing an orbital fracture under my eye and stitches in my face. I had surgery to place a plastic implant under my eye to free the muscle that was caught in the broken bone on November 5th. I may have to have additional surgery to repair the upper lid of my eye due to it drooping, but the doc is giving my eye time to heal completely on its own. I now have a prism on the left lense of my glasses to temporarily restore single vision due to currently seeing double. Doc thinks my eye will be okay in time. The girl that hit me was moved to another facility and is being charged with felonious assault. Ashtyn started Special Needs Preschool in August and has been doing very well, His communication skills are still behind but he is making great progress. He is growing up! Can't believe he is 3.5 years old!!! Anyways, that is the basics of my year! Had some drama at work with some coworkers between Feb-Sep, but everything happens for a reason, right? I will be very glad to see 2010 go, and I welcome a new year!!!

Thanks!!! It has been a long road, and sometimes it feels like the road is getting longer but just taking it one day at a time!
