The beauty in nature.
A little about me...November 2018, I woke up extremely dizzy. I thought I had carbon monoxide poisoning. After a few hours of things not getting better, the entire right side of my body went numb and I was taken to the hospital.
On the way to the hospital, I stopped breathing. I could feel myself dying. Then I heard my daughter say, "Breathe in, breathe out," and I listened.
After hours in the hospital, the doctor came in and said, "Well good news, it isn't carbon monoxide poisoning, the stroke didn't cause visible brain damage, and you have a brain tumor. Do you have any questions?"
We had lots of them. We found out, "slow growing, non-cancerous, operable," were all good words. Though, I've not done much except wait...referrals, specialists, more doctors to see.
I struggle every day with memory issues and processing information. I've slowed down a lot. I guess Heavenly Father wanted me to focus on the things which are truly important. I spend more time with my family.
My tumor rests on my optic and ear nerves. Which means my vision is wonky and my balance is not balanced.
I sit and ponder things. Not because I want to, but because it's all I'm really able to do. Days fly by and I'm not sure I do much.
I'm working full-time and still trying to make NetherCream a household name...it truly is an amazing product.
I still love to write. Sometimes, it's hard. I take naps often. Some days my brain just stops and so do I.
I love my family. I am grateful for all the slack they pick up. I'm grateful for all the love they give. I'm grateful to still be here. I'm grateful I listened to the voice of my daughter and breathed in.
There are many things I like to do, but this is who I am...
