Hello everyone! I wanted to share great news with y’all. I’m feeling AMAZING! In late February, my doctor suggested it was time for me to see a concussion specialist. The specialist tested me and prescribed a combination of physical therapy (at home!) and medicine for five weeks. By my third visit to the specialist, I felt good! At that visit, they tested again, and I “aced” their tests. They released me to embrace life with a return to my normal activities! To celebrate later that week, I went on my first run in 9 months and didn’t experience dizziness or headaches afterward. I love feeling like myself once more.
In other news, I purchased my first car. I’m grateful to have used the family’s car all these years as it has saved me so much, and I appreciate Dad and Mom’s generosity. I asked Dad to car shop with me last week. I wanted a vehicle that was reliable and would last a long time. After driving several vehicles (multiple times) and going to two dealerships, the next day, I purchased a Honda Accord with low miles.
I’m thankful for the Lord filling my life with work, ministry, church, and family. I’m also grateful for all your interest and concern in how I’m feeling. It’s been quite the past year, and I don’t wish to repeat another concussion!
“My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation:
he is my defence; I shall not be moved”
