Update Overdue

This is the longest I've gone without blogging in awhile... I think about posting all of the time, but to be honest, most of what's been going on are things I'd rather put behind me.

I have not felt like myself for a good three months. At first it was because I was pregnant, and the nausea was overwhelming. And then it was because the doctor told me I was going to miscarry, and the nausea continued anyway. Increased, even. And then after another three incredibly hard, long weeks, I had a miscarriage. I still don't feel like myself yet, but I'm getting there. 

This wasn't something I had planned on blogging about, but it's been a big part of our life this year. The nausea and tiredness have just worn me down. And the emotions, oh the emotions. My poor husband.

Last week we were able to take a little getaway, our first vacation since Hawaii back in March 2014. We went up north a little, to a lakeside resort in Conroe. The girls had a really good time, and Bub the hub and I were able to relax a bit. We didn't take very many photos, and most of them are currently being held hostage on my camera that refuses to connect with my computer. Sigh. At least the hub got a nice one on my phone with Avery!

Avery enjoyed being poolside and floating, and Maddie had the time of her life. She's already got a tan that I envy. 

The only negative on vacation was that we started seeing Avery have very long, scary seizures in the middle of the night. We are not sure how long these have been going on... the reason we caught them was because we were sleeping in the same room with her for the first time in a long time. We do have a video monitor on her at home, but we had not been awoken by these before. She does not make very much noise when they are happening, but her little body is going through a lot.

After some grueling doctor visits and an MRI, we have adjusted Avery's meds a little and have decided to start her on a new diet which may be able to more successfully control her seizure activity. It's a big change and prayers are appreciated... she will not be able to have most of the things that she enjoys eating every day. It's going to be a long learning process for the hub and I as well.

We are halfway though Avery's first summer break from school, so keeping her busy and happy is also a challenge. We are taking it all day by day, which is the only way we can.
