Lol I have no handle on things I just have learned to trust the one that does. I guess close to two years ago my husband (after memory loss very long story)want a divorce. If it hadn't been for God we wouldnt be together. I am thankful for every moment together and after that major trial for us I have learned that worrying is over rated (grant I still try to sometimes) and I just need to trust God to work and ask him for help when I loss it which can be often.

Oh and I forgot tomorrow night is a drive in movie I have never been and always wanted to go I am so excited!!
Love the drive ins! I went for the first time last year and it was first time for my son as well. It was so much fun! We put some seats and a blanket for my son to lay in in the truck bed.

:heok you know life is an adventure. Ok so this week could milk at my normal time get and at 3am( we argue about the time) my husband has a seizure. So that was just scary(only his second last one was four-five years ago, had sever memory loss and still doesn't remember much before said seizure) this time no memory loss just a few cuts and bruises. They are sending him to another neurologist to see what's happening. Outside of those things life has been well life lol crazy and hectic but lots of fun.
Yikes! I hope they figure things out soon for your DH.

My favorite oldest daughter is epileptic. I've dealt with seizures since she was 4 years old when she had her first. It's a very hard thing to have to watch and it puts a helluva strain on the body (& brain) of the person going through it. My daughter has had multiple shoulder dislocations and surgeries as a result. She had a head on collision with a boulder and peeled her face up on the steering wheel, that called for a bunch of surgery... She no longer drives. She's face planted on concrete several times and the list goes on... She no longer can work, can't drive, and suffers from anxiety disorders on top of it all. She's presently trying to get SSI disability started.

I hope they can determine what caused your husband's seizure. I hope he heals from the damages it caused.

I used to have them as a child thankfully I no longer do. I am not, nor was epileptic I don't believe he is either since he only had two in four nearly five years. He just has a tendency to standing when it starts that seems to cause a lot of damage. He gets seen on Tuesday by the neurologist. He other issue was when he was four he was shot with a shot gun so he has bbs still in him, one severed his optic nerve in one eye the bb is still there. Last time the did an MRI and it didn't show that the bb had moved so hopefully it still hasn't.

Other unrelated news... My doe snowball(rabbit) lost all three of her kits after a month( first on vanished) I found two this morning in the nesting box covered in ants. The off the ground the dang ants either killed them or the died some how and the ants found them:he:barnie

I have forgotten..what part of Tx are you in?
I ask, because my niece breeds/raises/sells Lionheads, Mini Rex, Harlequins, & Champagnes near Dayton Tx (20 miles SE of me) and she hasn't had much trouble from the heat that I'm aware of. R.E.Ws and American Blues too.
