September Health Update

Since my last health post on my blog I have had 3 doctor visits. 

My EEG results were all good, my doctor adjusted my seizure medication because I am still having seizures.  I am completely off of Depakote and am now taking 1500 mg of Keppra a day.

My blood results showed my liver numbers are good again.  However my thyroid numbers are double what they should be (which is probably why I am losing my hair like crazy) so now I am on Synthroid to resolve that problem.

I had some more blood drawn to have my hormone levels checked to see if that is what is causing my seizures.  I will get those results next month when I go see the doctor again.

Thanks again to all for your prayers and may God be glorified through my life.

James 1:2-4 ~ Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Widows Group ~ Card Class

A few months ago I decided that I wanted to find other ladies in my season of life ~ life as a widow. 
I found a widow's ministry group at a nearby church and took a huge step out of my comfort zone and joined.  They meet once a month for a Bible study and once a month for a fun activity.  They are always very sweet, loving and accepting of anyone that wants to join, whether part of that church or not. 
The Bible study time goes by too quickly and I haven't been able to really get to know many of the ladies.  As I continue to get to know them, I look forward to hearing their experience of how God brought them thru the loss of their husband and learning what God is doing in their lives now.

The fun activity this month was a card class where I was able to show them how to make cards. 

I love making cards and sharing my hobby with others.
