Update

Hi everyone. I just wanted to update everyone on why I haven't been around this week. I left school Wednesday feeling dizzy and with a terrible headache. I went to the emergency room three times between then and Friday when they finally did an MRI Friday and found that I had a small stoke. I have been in the hospital since Friday and am still recovering. I have missed blogging and stalking dearly, but I wanted to let everyone know that I am okay and why I haven't been around. I hope to be back to normal soon. The doctors say I will we out of school for a few weeks while I recover and go through some physical and occupational therapy. 

Anyway, miss and love ya'll!!

  2. Ginger! I'm so thankful you're ok. My heart sunk when I read "stroke." Let us know if you need anything. It's not that far of a drive! :) Hope the therapy and rest helps you get better soon!

  21. Oh my gosh! I am sending lots of love your way! My dad had a "massive" stroke in November and since has received lots of therapy. He is now almost back to normal. I am amazed at the difference therapy has made!! Dad says he wishes he had worked with a speech therapist 50 years ago because it would have made him a much better public speaker. Plus working with the PT and OT is like having your own personal trainer. My dad is decades older than you (as am I) so just think of the progress that you will make!!!!!!

    Please know that we are all thinking of you! Take good care of yourself!

    Love to you,
