An update....

All the tests are in and while we would have liked a big fat "normal" on everything, and gotten better news, but there was nothing horrible. In a nut shell, Mike is having episodes of Afib his body is correcting without him knowing even with the Dig. He has a pulmonary vein abnormality that he was likely born with that just shows itself as we 'age'. He has to stay on the icky digoxin for now...his doc says nothing controls AF from the Pulmonary Vein issues like we are going to be hopeful and prayerful he feels better on it soon....He also have HORRID! cholesterol and his BP was higher than it should be for someone with a 'heart condition'...kinda crazy for a guy who is in pretty good shape and eats pretty well!!! Darn Genetics!! So we have some work to do...more meaningful excersize and an even better diet....
Nothing new to report on the housing issue....both our internal med Doc and his Cardiologist wrote letter outlining the lifestyle recommendation...specifically decreasing even came right out and said buying and selling a new home was too much for now and it was NOT recommended....HOPEFULLY...with the prayers and these specific recommendations they will rethink their stance. I can't imagine legally a judge would give them much and I've got some pretty ticked off and sympathetic neighbors...not sure they will get much 'love' if they move in after forcing us out...We've lived in the hood for 11yrs now!
On a better note...we are still trying to be positive and enjoy the most out of are some cute Easter, Spring Break and puppy pics....Sadly, my sweet Nelli's pups died...but her mamma had a litter @3m ago and we went to check them out for some folks who were interested in my sweet babies pups. We were fortuate enough to be invited by Jesse's family (Jessa's boyfriend) to visit them at their cabin at the was fabulously relaxing and TON's of outdoor fun for all!!! Mike and I did NOT rock climb..but boy did the girls love it. We made 2 trips to the cabin for climbing adventures!!
Keep the prayers coming...they have REALLY helped. We are both feeling more peaceful that this situation is out of our control and we've just turned it over to the Lord. THANK YOU all for the overwhelming response with emails, calls, was JUST what we needed.


  1. Mikes in good hands and surrounded by prayer! I pray for your sanity as well through all of this. So sorry to hear about the pups. Great pictures! I am still in "learning more" mode and hopeful we will move to actively pursuing really soon! Troy had surgery on his shoulder back in Jan and his job situation after 17 yrs is odd right now so just praying it all works out how HE planned for us. Angie

  2. Oh my goodness, Myra! So much going of for you right now. Thinking about and praying for Mike. Love all the pictures of those cute kids. Each is just so darn good lookin'!!

    Loves from Idaho!!

  3. I can't imagine all that you are enduring. I'll be praying, and keep us all posted. I don't understand some people...

  4. Myra, good news... Please make sure you check all avenues to give Mike and your family a piece of mind. We'll keep you and your family in our prayers.
