Goodbye to July...

It seems I spoke too soon when I said I was ready for whatever July had in store for me. I could not have been more wrong. It has been a difficult month, to say the least...

After an ambulance ride,
2 blood transfusions,
3 emergency room visits,
5 different doctors,
5 nights and 7 days in the hospital, 
10 pounds lost, 
14 days of IV treatments at home every 6 hours,
At least 15 remedies attempted to relieve the rash all over my body as a result of allergic reactions to the medications,
and a 32nd birthday spent in bed, 
July fared worse than we could have ever imagined.

Forgive me for not being here and posting quite as regularly as I had hoped and promised. It has been a difficult month, and now, we are focusing on healing... both physically and emotionally.
