I can't believe it has been over a month since I posted anything - well, I can and I can't. I'm not so sure I have any blog readers left, but just in case I do I thought I'd finally post about what has kept me from posting. ;-)
I've been sick. Sick since the beginning of February. I returned from CHA in California and came down with a nasty cold that turned into a sinus infection. As I was healing from the sinus infection I started having trouble breathing - I was diagnosed with costochondritis at my second Med Center visit. The doc actually squeezed my ribcage which just about sent me through the roof! Ouch! That diagnosis has been confirmed by two other doctors and I've had lots of tests to rule out all the nasty life threatening stuff. So far none of the traditional treatments (meds) have worked for me. I'm now focusing 100% on natural healing and praying that we find the answer to my healing soon! In case you came upon this post because you yourself have costo and can't kick it, I found a lot of helpful info on this blog. Start on her first post and read through. Good, helpful stuff.
The pain isn't fun, but the worst part for me is the difficulty breathing. I feel like there is a heavy weight sitting on my chest or like the cartilage and muscle in my chest has turned into wood and I'm trying to stretch that wood with each breath. So I've been resting a lot. I haven't been doing very much scrappy work...which has been so very hard. But on the plus side I have been relaxing, spending more time with God and my family, reading, and cooking more. I've also had the chance to work on an afghan that I started long ago and has been collecting dust! Here's a little peek. I'll share a photo when it's finished too.
Thanks for stopping by!
