6 Years Later! Quick Update and New Ways to Follow My Journey!

Hello All!

It has been almost 6 years since I have written a post for this blog! Crazy! I realize that many people still find this old blog of mine and read it, so I thought many may wonder how I am doing today. So much has happened since my last blog post in 2012 that I can not cover all of it. Here is just a small snip-it. Healthwise, I am still doing well. Both my heart and liver are still stable. I have run into medication issues with keeping my SVTs (rhythm issue) under control, but currently the medication and dose I am on right now is doing a pretty decent job. I have IBS and that has caused some issues over the years, but it has gotten better. I had my first heart cath in adulthood in Spring of 2013. All went well and nothing needed to be done, so just pictures and heart pressures were taken. My husband, Chris, and I moved to Texas in the Summer of 2014. My older brother, Ryan, got finally got married to my niece's mom, Ashley, in early 2016 which was totally awesome. Sadly, my dad passed away very unexpectedly and suddenly in May 2016, so I have been on an emotional roller coaster since then. My little brother, Aaron, graduated high school last June. Aaron is in college now and currently lives with my husband and I. I turned the big 30 last August and my sweet husband, Chris, totally spoiled me... even took me for a night at a nice resort. I will be turning 31 years old next month! Woah! My husband, Chris, and I have been married over 6 years now and last summer we bought our first house! Being first time homeowners has been a lot of work, but so very worth it. We still do not having any children, but we hope to have a child in the near future...if a few tests and a medication change (to a pregnancy safe med) goes well in the spring next year then we will get a "green light" to get pregnant. Exciting and a bit terrifying at the same time! Well, that wraps up a small snit-it update. If you would like to find out  more about what I have been up to over the years and what my life is like are a few ways you can keep up with me now:

I will continue to keep up this old blog of mine so anyone can read it anytime, myself included as I love walking down memory lane sometimes. 

Hugs and Blessings to all!

Me on my 30th Birthday last August.
