Today I woke up and there was a song in my head! I take that as a good sign. I washed my hair and stayed downstairs with mom and dad and the kids for about 2 hours. That too is progress. I am still very low on energy and foggy and have many of the other symptoms I previously mentioned. I have struggled so much in the past week especially, but as always I do try to look at the positive in any bad situation. I am hopeful that I can beat this and move forward.

If it were about those things it would be very short indeed!! He is good, He is holy, and He is the reason I am doing
Whew! Serious wake-up call for me the other day! I was attending my church Bible study, when I finally understood a concept that has been eluding me for as long as I can recall.
