Hanging On

Last month around this time I kept my baby grandson Jasper for the first time.  He is 8 months old.  Jasper screamed at the top of his lungs for over 2 hours.  I felt helpless.  I had a horrible vertigo attack while trying to console him...  then I texted his parents and asked them to please come home.  

Since that night, I have been suffering from ...  something...  I'm not sure what.  I've been dizzy or off balance almost every day.  I've been to the Med Express 3 times.  Anxiety - yep, that too.  Tired.  Lightheaded.  Headaches off and on.  Pressure in my head.   I can't seem to shake it and I don't know exactly what it is that has taken hold of me.  

I have had a few 'good' days...  but then I go back to dizzy again.  My head feels like it is swimming sometimes.  I'm starting to think that I will never gain my balance again.  I thought it was allergies, so I purchased a room purifier (not izon) with heppa filter.  After the first night using it, I felt worse.  


So my summer has been me...  Just hanging on.... LITERALLY!

I am thankful though, that I was well enough to make the trip with Gary to PA for his class reunion a couple weekends ago  and to NJ to visit our newest grand angel, Greyson.

 How is Gracie you ask?  

Well, when she's not wrestling with her alligator, 
she's sleeping on it.

I hope YOU are enjoying your summer!
