if you've been reading m'blog for a while, you're probably aware that lovely husband jeff has been home for several months due to a very bad & slightly mysterious case of vertigo. we've been seeing lots of doctors and having lots of tests and taking quite a few medications. thankfully, most of the really scary neurological possibilities have been ruled out; unfortunately the exact problem is still unclear. the main thing i've noticed is that there is A LOT of "hurry up and wait" involved in this scenario! brief periods of intense, frantic (and stressful!) activity are interspersed with lonnnnnnnng, drawn out (and stressful!) delays. at the moment, having rushed around all last week doing the latest round of appointments...we are now waiting to get in to see yet another specialist for a series of tests that are only done at one clinic... (which, luckily, is in philadelphia, only an hour's train ride away!) of course we are massively grateful to have so many medical options, to have insurance, to have wonderful & supportive friends and family, but this process is not easy, and it's certainly not quick! yikes. however, we're getting through it and once again i offer many thanks for all of your continued good thoughts and wishes--we hope to have some more definitively good news soon!

heart the art: week 30 (rushed)
this turned out to be quite a quick HEART the ART page to make...i think i turned it out in about half an hour. unless you count the two weeks i spent *thinking* about what to do, in which case it was quite a slow page to make! which brings us round to what the topic was, for week 30: RUSHED.
