Eat-anniversary

If anything this year I have learned that I am in fact tough. I have come so far and I am so blessed! And I am continuing to seek new treatment options. We think my Sj√∂gren's Syndrome is a new culprit. (We let it get the upper hand when we stopped immuno suppressant therapy last year. Now it's showing back up it seems.) I'm ready to fight some more. I'll keep you posted. 
 I have the team of the sweetest caring doctors. Gosh I just never give them enough credit. One specialist just called and made me cry (good tears) just out of pure kindness. "Tell your Mom hi." I mean seriously how sweet?! She didn't even have to call me over the little medication break but that's the kind of care I strive for and fight for. I fight for the best care possible. I am one very blessed girl in so many ways!! My doctors each and every one of them are a true blessing. My medical team is such a blessing and I simply have been reminded of that this past week. I love my team and I don't even want to think where I would be without them. We all fight together. It's truly amazing. I'm going to cry some more about how truly blessed I am. I am doing so much better and making big strides. Though I have so much further to go.... I'm going. I'm living again and that's all I can ask for. Today a year ago, I had my Endometriois excision surgery. A year ago today I started eating again.(no surgical reason. Just God. He told me, "to prepare... That I would not be cured but I would function well again. Though it would take time."  It has been such a work in progress and a battle still. But I am doing it on my own. I'm eating!! I'm so proud and excited. Enjoy the simple things in life for they are truly the biggest joys. Tonight, I'm eating a hamburger and I am celebrating eating for a year! (I love my toddler milestones. Who ever thinks they will grown up to be sick? Or not be able to eat for three years? And then eat again? My life is crazy!!! Dysautonomia is crazy to live with. That's for sure but I am oh so blessed and my heart is full!) I'm so thankful for My Father in Heaven who guides me through this crazy life I lead. Looking back is weird looking forwards is weird. Right now. But I know I don't have to worry because, I seriously know I will be okay. I have a plan. His plan. Okay let's quit with the tears and go enjoy our blessed lives! You just never know what a year will bring -Chelle
