** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

Too Many Heartbeats Dysautonomia

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.

~ Ephesians 2:8-9

Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry I haven't been around as much lately but I'm most definitely still alive! Not only has our internet being acting up, but the last few weeks, especially this last one, have been particularly hard for me. I have been dealing with extreme pain, nausea and dizziness. It has been so bad, that most of the time it has been next to impossible just to sit up.

Most days, I'm able to get out of the bed, get dressed and make it downstairs to our family room. There, I usually remain in my recliner for the rest of the day. It definitely takes a good bit of work and assistance to get there, but I manage. This week I have not been able to do that at all. I have had to stay in bed the entire week. Needless to say, it has been very discouraging for me AND for my family. It is especially difficult because all our bedrooms are upstairs and, of course, most of the action goes on downstairs. Plus, in order to help me, they must go up and down the steps multiple times each day. I really feel guilty about that, even though I know I can not help it. It makes me feel like such a burden...and
all I can do for them is say thank you. Over and Over and Over. *sigh*

Speaking of thank yous - I would like to say thank you SO VERY MUCH for all the wonderful comments and emails I've received this week. (I'm still trying to catch up on all of them and it's gonna take a while!) I also wanted to say hello to all my new Readers/Followers. It is a real pleasure to meet you and I'm thrilled you chose to stop by and hang out with us! I hope you will come back again soon. When this 'flare' eases a bit, I will be making my rounds to all your great blogs. I promise!!

And to my faithful readers who continue to comment, leave sweet words of encouragement and/or pray for me each day, I want you to know that you are such a huge blessing in my life and I cherish you all so very much! Thanks for continuing to visit!

Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

That song was beautiful. I loved all the pictures that were in it.

Sorry you haven't been feeling well. Hang in there and don't worry. Just do what you have to do to feel better.

Since I joined your blog and read your story, I cannot get you out of my mind or my heart ! I read about all your meds, but I was wondering if they tried Digoxin or Amiodorone. My Jacob was on both when he was in failure - they are powerful stuff !

Thanks for stopping by Lavender Hill - it's so nice to see your name there !
