Almost caught up with these posts. Last week was wild even though we had so much time off cause of Justin’s birthday, we spent the days celebrating!
I had an appointment Monday morning that didn’t take too long. We drove out to my hometown and saw my doctor. She gave me medication I had taken back in 2014 when I was really struggling with frequent migraines. They aren’t as frequent, but I had noticed the aura I get before them was inhibiting my work. I get blurry-no vision in my left eye, my left hand and sometimes my mouth go numb as well. So I’ve just been feeling a lot better knowing I can get relief from that again. She did mention something that I’m not sure why it went overlooked years ago: women with auras shouldn’t be on hormonal oral contraceptives. She also recommended I get a CT scan just to be safe. So now, I’ll have to schedule that imaging AND talk to my gynecologist about changing my birth control. I’m not too worried about the scan, but changing my birth control makes me nervous. Not because I think we can’t be safe, but because I originally started using it to regulate my obnoxious periods & symptoms. I’m just really hoping she can put me on something else (like the straight progesterone pill) that will still help in that regard. Anyways, this rant was longer than my visit…
Justin and I hung out at my parents’ house a bit after the appointment, and I got to see my sweet kitty boys! We played around taking videos and silly snaps on the swing set at the front playground for a while. I was so excited and happy to play around with my cats for a bit cause I miss them so much. Managed to take a few pics while petting them. Later, we met up with my mom for lunch at Panera. It was a delicious meal to which she treated us- for Justin’s birthday. We had a lovely time talking and catching up (cause I hadn’t seen her in over a month). We planned a trip to the apple orchard for late October, and hopefully she’ll be able to come see our apartment before that!
It was really just an awesome day to connect with her and spend the quality time we needed together (:
Even later, we headed home to get Justin a suit jacket/blazer (which my dad gifted him for his birthday) for our fancy dinner on Friday. That post is coming soon, so please stick around for more birthweek fun and photos!
