On one day we went to Creamers field and the park. That's not overcast in the background, but a layer of smoke covering the city.....that's before it got really bad!
At the park with 5 very dirty kiddos!~
The 6 seater circus mobile I got for $100
5. "My tickers not ticken like they say it should".....no really my health isn't doing so good though. I found out that I have low vitamin B12.....not a good thing considering the damage low levels can cause to your body. I originally wanted it checked because I have been feeling completely fatigued. Well then I find out that my Aortic and Tricuspid valves have gone from mild to moderate/severe regurgitation. Were in the process of getting a second opinion and to see if the valves can be repaired rather than replaced. I do NOT want to be on a blood thinner for the rest of my life, SCARY! After doing some research I've discovered that my dad who died at 36 did not die of electrical heart problems but instead because of Mitral Valve Regurgitation(same thing I have, just a different valve) I am also starting to find things that show my brother who died at 24, did not die of electrical problems either, but of something structural. This changes the game for me. They died young, very young, so I feel like I am on a time line. Thankfully, I have contact with a great Cardiologist who has contacts with all of the heart Dr.s on the West coast, so he will help me in getting a second opinion and a Cardiothoracic Surgeon, if need be. I will keep you all up to date on what we find out!
7. I am sure there is so much I forgot and haven't posted, but I just wanted to catch up. Now, were heading into fall. We've got a few trips coming up including White Water Rafting, 4 wheeling in the White Mountains and a camping trip with our friends for Labor Day weekend.....I am so excited about all of it! I will do my best to keep up with the blog as things start to slow down.....wait is that possible with all these kids and heart problems??
