hi friends. i’ve been overwhelmed in support and i can’t tell you how lifted up i feel by your comments, emails from my friends, phone calls by family, text messages, sweet voice mails, and conversations with soul sisters. one thing i’m learning in this journey is to simply stand still and accept the support – to really feel the force and power of it, the interconnectedness of it all. i am incredibly still with it. and moved by it all at once.
we learned that my brain mri was totally normal – turns out that i not only have a brain up in my noggin, but that it’s fully functioning and clear of concern 🙂 i can’t tell you what a relief this has been for us. and now, we continue with the investigation, including a couple more tests, and a second neurology opinion regarding the spine mri results from last week. in the meantime, i am feeling optimistic and really solid that i’m going to be ok – no matter what.
i’ve been keeping myself busy. from a day spent with my friend jen who is visiting for the blogher conference, to afternoons spent with mati and swirly (who is also in town), to studio hours (to fill orders), to a couple trips to the movies, to time spent with john and bella. we’ve made it through this particular week without devastating news and for this, i am seriously grateful and it makes me want to celebrate.
more soon…and thank you again – it means so much to know that i am being thought of, prayed for, remembered. as a couple of wise friends have reminded me, the only way through is through. and so i continue – to walk this crazy scary part of my life’s journey, toe-to-toe in support, straight through.
big, big hugs,
