Shot in the dark?

OK, we will wait and see what happens!

Maybe it's a little silly but I watched the Tyra show today and when it was done it had the website addy so I went on there to take a look. And emailed them my story about having PV and everything that happened last year! I wonder if anything will come of it or not. Maybe this will be a way to get more people aware of this condition, and then again, maybe not. We will see!

Anyways I have started the new years resolutions off early this time around, while not making a resolution per say, I hopped on the bike today and put in a half hour at a high speed and felt great afterwards. I want to do lots more of those bike rides in the near future, starting today, and be healthy so J and I can hopefully have a happy, healthy baby this time next year!

Bye for now!

A One-Year Anniversary?

Today marks one year since I went into the hospital and my life changed forever. A year ago I was feeling so miserable, awful headache and could not stop puking, and blacking out for the majority of the day, which led to finding the blood clots, being flown to Calgary, three and a half weeks of misery, a stroke, and eventually being diagnosed with a chronic condition that makes life more complicated than it should be.

Now though, a year later, I feel pretty good! I have had this frigging annoying head cold that doesn't want to leave me alone for the last 2 weeks, but other than that, no complaints! And I am of course in a very good and optimistic mood about everything. I can't wait till my next appointment with my hemotologist, where I hope to get the good news that we can start trying for a baby in the next few months!

So anyways, thought I'd reflect back on what happened a year ago and go HA! I beat all of that, there's no way I will let it hold me back from anything else in my life! Here's to the many, many years to come, and to being happy and living life! Because I refuse to do anything less than that!
