A New Week Begins...

First of all, thank you everyone for all your kind words and encouragement this last week. I'm not quite back to "normal" after receiving the news of my Granny's passing, but then again, when am I ever normal? I guess what I mean by that is I'm starting to get back to doing my usual things again. Starting to create things, got my inbox cleaned out of all new e-mails, actually cooking instead of doing cereal, things like that :P

The funeral is going to be on Saturday. We're still working on details about going up.

I found out some frustrating news medically today. I found out a few weeks ago that my neurologist was leaving the Vancouver Clinic (long story) and I've been a little upset about that because he's one of my favorite doctors and we're still trying to get to the bottom of what's behind my migraine. Well...now it turns out that not only is he leaving, they shut down the entire department! So I don't know where I'm going to go for my migraine care. Trying not to panic about all this, but I'm not exactly at my strongest emotionally right now anyway, so adding this on doesn't help.

Oh, no! That's horrible that they're shutting down that department! You're in a pretty populated area, though, right? I'm sure there's gotta be another one around somewhere close. *hugs!*

Sending lots of hugs your way!

Very sorry to hear about Granny!

And sorry to hear about having to find a new doc and facility!

Been thinkin' a lot about you lately!

Doesn't it always seem that everything happens at once? Hope fully you'll be perkier in a short time and can cope with the extra stress. Perhaps a new clinic will open up in your area with even better doctors! Hang in there!

Praying for you, Ruthie! It is frustrating having medical things change - hope you will have a great new doctor who will find the cause right away!
