I know, I know, it's been awhile! I was sitting reading and I just started thinking about you all and thought I'd stop in and say hi. I have been doing really good for awhile now. The Doc seams to have finally been able to work out a few kinks. It was a long road getting here with several bumps, a few ditches, and a crash or two along the way, but the seizures have been under good control for the better part of the last year. The Doc was pushing me for a long time to have a VNS implant because medications just weren't working. I just couldn't make myself go through a major surgery with no assurance that it would help. After lots of trial and error, about 10 different meds and combinations of, we finally found something that worked.
I have been able to work a lot more now that the health isn't as much of an issue. It's a good thing to because we just received word that the wife is losing her job after 26 years at her company. C'est la vie. My mom and dad bought another farm to add to the collection. They looked at it for a friend that was interested in buying. When that friend declined they bought it themselves. I call my dad the "Land Baron" now. I still spend lots of time visiting and doing the whole gardening, canning, farming thing with them.
Well, I just thought I'd stop in and say hi and I'm doing OK and thank you all again for being there for me during some of my darker times. Hope everyone here is doing well.
