March 25, 2009 - A long awaited update

Hello my friends. It has been quite some time since I found my self here. For those of you who don't know me, haven't been here before or have known me for some time now I can't thank you all enough for finding me here. It's been almost a year and a half since I posted and as I type here I remember how much solace a good post can bring.

August 2007 seems like forever ago, but to an MS'er with good health, it can appear to be a lifetime. I had one attack in the last year and a half and boy was it a GOOD one. That damn MonSter reared it's ugly head and 3 steriod treatments later, I had killed the beast. I should have blogged through it, but this attack took me a new path. It left me a bit angry for a couple of months until I picked myself up, kicked my own ass and got back to the reality - life was going on without me.

As soon as I was healthy I felt fantastic and I was blessed as much because in July of 2008 Mike and I walked down the aisle and I did indeed become, THE Mrs. McCarville. We had a small wedding with immediate family only and had a rather large reception later when we had recovered from the wedding! [NOTE TO THOSE HERE WITH MS: Getting married with a small shindig and saving the energy for a party later helps that beast stay buried!]

Life has been great as a new wife. We just had our honeymoon in Mexico and I'm learning Spanish now as a result. I've been there twice now in two years and we can't wait to go back. I think I shall try to convince my husband these trips are healthwise very therapeutic!

Ok, so this post isn't my normal laugh your rear off post that would normally be bestowed upon yourselves, but if it helps I'm drinking a lemocello lemonade and smiling just to know you are reading this. I'M LAUGHING because I was going to drink it for dinner and I'm toasting you all hoping you are all healthy, happy and well.

God Bless, and I promise you'll see more of me soon. - Micha
