Hurry up and WAIT..


The past two weeks have been the loooooooooongest two weeks of my life. Two steps forward, three steps back. Run, run, run... wait, wait, wait. That is basically the summary of everything. Here is my update for all of you since my last personal post.

I went through labs and tests and labs and test and labs and tests and scans and scans and scans. Multiple doctors. Multiple locations. Lots of faxes - reviewing - waiting. Faxing - reviewing - waiting.

Then of course theres the hiccups like people not doing their job and faxing over your results to your doctor for DAYS. Then you have to call twice to make sure they finally did it (almost a week later) and then - you guessed it - more waiting...

Today I got the final call of the review of EVERYTHING and was able to take a final deep breath...

Every single thing they tested came back NORMAL.

First - THANK GOD & thank you to everyone who PRAYED over me and my family.

Second - It felt like the air had been ripped from my lungs because all that means is we're back to square one. It means all my symptoms and issues are still there and still needing to find the cause. It means we were just looking in all the wrong places.

My doctor wants to try a more holistic approach before we jump back into more tests, labs and scans. More doctors and more waiting.

She is over the moon that I'm already drinking Shakeology. Why? Because it's already giving me Vitamins A, C, D, E, K1, B1, B2, B3, B6, Folic Acid, B12, Biotin, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, phytonutrients, antioxidants, proprietary adaptogen herbs, pre AND probiotics, omega 3s, digestive enzyme blends and lots of other NATURAL, superfood and super nutrients that my body NEEDS.

In addition to drinking that every day she's putting me on a BUNCH of extra supplements to try and balance my body's hormone levels for my thyroid, adrenals and pituitary. What you see above are just a FRACTION of what I will be taking every day. I think there's at least 3 more pills I will have in each daily container.

My levels in this sense were BARELY in the normal range and we have Shakeology to thank for that. My body is SO depleted that I'd be scared to see what the numbers are without drinking it. Yikes! That's why we have to up all the other intakes to see if that is going to help with my symptoms and issues we're dealing with.

The other good news is the lump they found in my breast is just a cyst. Fibrocystic issues run in my family, so I've been blessed with that as well. More of a nuisance than anything else.

We will give this holistic approach a shot for the rest of the month. Then we will reevaluate. If needed, we will move on to the next step but for now, here we will sit and fight from the inside out.

We are grateful for every single one of you who prayed for us, cried with us and held us up at our time of need. To say these last two weeks have been a roller coaster is an understatement. We are thankful that God has bigger plans and now our prayer is that this long road to understanding what is going on will be shortened and answers will be provided.

The exhaustion is debilitating in so many ways. and that symptom is only scratching the surface of what we're dealing with.

Pray more.
Worry less.
Onward and upward <3
