I Am Back!

Last Update: September 21, 2018

Back in June, I posted that I would be leaving WA temporarily due to some health issues. I had been contemplating my return, as I have a couple of ideas for additional webites as well as ideas for the website I had built during the time that I had been here. And, I will be totally honest -- I looked into other options for those ideas as well. Different hosting platforms, blogging platforms, etc!

When it came time to make a decision, it appeared that there was only one true solution -- TO GET BACK INTO THE WONDERFUL WA COMMUNITY AND GET TO WORK!!

Yes, I still have some lingering effects from my ruptured brain aneurysm in October 2017. But now that I am almost 1 year into this journey of my life, it is time to learn how to work with and around those effects! During the past 3 months, I have had a few new answers to issues and a couple of new diagnoses, as well as a few medication changes. I am now using a cane to walk due to arthritis pain that has increased dramatically! But deep down, I am still the same person who wants to help others and I believe the best way to do that is to tell my story.

With today's medical knowledge and advances, 60% of the people who have a brain aneurysm rupture actually survive. That in itself is amazing! However, there is a lack of information out there to tell people what to expect after the rupture is taken care of and how to move on with their lives!

So I am ready to start again! I might be a bit slower that I was the first time around, but I am more determined than ever! So thanks in advance for being here as I make my return!
