considering what we know

God is truly carrying ๐Ÿ™ us through this unexpected journey!!

Today NYC I had excellent care (normal doctor + cab drivers + just enjoying NYC!)

I am *finally* sleeping consistently ๐Ÿ˜ด because of doctor approved (fairly strong) sleep med. It's the only one that actually worked for me!

Next up...

Thanks ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ˜Š be to God...I found a CVS that had these lotion/hand soap ๐Ÿงผ travel dispensers.  My thumb actually split open on top (my doctor when I showed her was rather shocked by how dry my hands were and immediately promised Us-based HSA medical necessity letter for buying needed Aveeno lotion and handsoap). ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿซ 

I am happy cozy at home ๐Ÿก ☺️ after being in NYC. MY eyes still don't have normal night vision yet so got home just before totally dark! ☺️๐Ÿ‘

I have a cute little travel sized blanket (easy to throw in the wash after use too!) that I used today again!

I still get a little manic especially as the day wears on but I am much better than I was! Husband, doctor and others all agree!

I can't yet easily respond to blog comments (etc) but I am reading and encouraged by each one! ☺️๐Ÿ’—

I am beyond relieved to be getting consistent sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด ๐Ÿ’ค 

Now I am stabilizing in both body and mind. 

Thanks God ๐Ÿ’• and thank you for your prayers ๐Ÿ™❤️

life changing days

Today is my spiritual father and Matushka last Sunday before they move out of State  ๐Ÿ™ 

10 years we have had their protection and ministry blessing us.

DV I will be there... my Husband has duties at our other church.... it will be a bittersweet day...

I have been grieving but also hoping ๐Ÿ™ in God for what/who is next ๐Ÿ™ 

I finally am sleeping at night thx to a sleep med. 

I think I had a question about bone density loss/health.

Every person is different. Some are going to need a good endocrinologist and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Taking a calcium citrate and Vit D is a MUST. Figure out calcium rich foods. And *move your body* take a daily walk. I have regained significantly by consistent walking. If you do strength training be careful perhaps consult a professional so you don't injure yourself.  Key is to not give up about it.... be proactive!

Ok. Please pray for us ๐Ÿ™ 

May God guide us save us and have mercy ๐Ÿ™❤️

still here

Wow has it been hard. 

I just got approved for the one sleep med that helps to be taken nightly. This past night I only got 1.5 hours sleep. If my insomnia decreases I can actually stabilize mentally and physically. 

Asking prayers for just that. 

It's been very hard on my Husband and myself. 

I will be back here as I am able ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ’™

I went to NYC Tuesday. I went to church this morning. The baptism weekend was wonderful. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฉต๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿฉต
