Just Wanted To Check In

Hi Everyone, I wanted to apologize for not having posted in a while and say thank you to those of you who sent messages and emails to check on me. Things have been a little rough here. My husband and I drove 3 hours yesterday to get me to a good neurosurgeon in Zephryhills Florida. He was the doctor who put my shunt in 13 years ago. I have a brain tumor and he put a shunt in the base of my spine to keep the pressure down from around my brain. Well, for the last 2 years I've been having seizures and headaches but about 2 months ago things kinda kicked into high gear. The seizures are coming regularly and the headaches are excruciating. But God has been good and I have not lost any more of my vision, which I am very thankful for. The doctor decided that risk to me where far greater than the benefits would be at this point, so I am seeing some additional doctors to help deal with the pain and seizures and praying that God gives me the strength to handle what I have to deal with. I have a big God and I know that with Him nothing is impossible and I will get through this.
I decorated my church bulletin board which I will try to remember to photograph when I go to church tomorrow. Then my niece is getting married next weekend in West Virginia and with all my health problems I can't be there but I was able to help with some things for the reception and my cricut was just buzzing. I was able to make tags for the candy buffet and since the theme of the wedding was fall, I cut out some squirrels, acorns, pumpkins and leaves to decorate the candy table with. I wish I could be there but still being able to help her has made me so happy. It almost (almost) feels like I'm there. I took some pictures on my phone to send to my niece but was in such a hurry to get them to her that I forgot to take pictures with my regular camera. I'll try to get them loaded and show you what I made.
Again I would like to thank you all for caring and being so kind to me.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
God Bless
