Hi again! It's me wanting to add a little more to what I just went through. Returned to work today - so happy to not be in pain, bleeding or too much swelling! Can't help but feel wary of still having a spontaneous bleed - all I can do is pray for the best! My family, friends and co-workers are awesome and are always there for me! I especially want to thank Shalon Whitgob - a fellow avm-er, that has given me so much hope in knowing that there is an end to this horrible curse of an avm! It is a complicated abnormality that I don't think people quite grasp the severity of! I have learned so much along the way - dealing with pain and obstacles sometimes too much to handle! I wanted to make sure some of you got to see some of the photos of Shalon's Journey as well - you can get to her site from mine! She also has an amazing husband and family/friends for a support system! I can't emphasize enough what a big part all of you play in my life. Just knowing your thoughts and prayer are with us, as we manage to do the best we can during this time! I look forward to this being over one day and would love to continue my life, as sometimes it feels like I'm on hold! Can't travel for pleasure or do too too much w/some of my limitations - but doing pretty well overall right now!
Thanks again for keeping up with me!
