Wow. I did not intend to go this long without a post. But, as it does, life happens.
Let’s catch up, shall we?
All summer, I have been alternating between working full time at the urgent care office and traveling locally. I’ve been to Virginia (twice!), Florida, Pittsburgh, and Missouri. One week on the road, one week at home. I’ve been baking and photographing recipes when I can, but have yet to sit down and import photos, edit photos, and type up a post.
I was planning to get back into the groove of things last week, when I had some unexpected health troubles. I started seeing double on Monday. Tuesday I saw a doctor at my office, was sent to an opthamologist, who sent me to the hospital for an MRI. They determined it was not an emergent issue, so I was admitted overnight and sent for an MRI in the morning. After the MRI, I was taken to the opthamology unit, where I saw a neuro-optomology specialist who diagnosed me with Myasthenia Gravis, a neurological auto-immune disorder where the immune system starts to make antibodies against the proteins that make muscles work. Fortunately for me, it is only in my eyes and hasn’t affected my breathing. I’m on medications and will be having surgery in a few months that will hopefully put me into remission.
So what does this mean for the blog? Nothing, really. I can’t see as well, (Still seeing double), but it could have been a lot worse. I’ll still be baking and blogging!
HOWEVER, School starts in a few weeks. (SENIOR YEAR BABY!!!) and I’ll definitely have to cut back on posting at that point. So, I’ll be posting 1-2 times a week, with a recipe and maybe a bonus post, such as a round up or life update post! This way I am still updating consistently, but not stressing trying to post multiple times a week.
Thank you for bearing with me friends in my MAJOR lack of posting this summer, and I will see you around in blogland!
