It's been awhile. Seems 2011 is a year I can't wait to see go from an overall perspective. My husband had the shingles and so I had to care for him and kids. At least I'm to a point now that I can walk around and get things done for everyone. We had soup a lot since it's easy to make! The girls have been very good and helped. Luckily, we caught my husband's shingles were caught very early and he's doing much better now. Even I've been feeling better even if a little tired and getting a big now since I'm in my 30th week of pregnancy. It's day by day but remember, I've been feeling better. Well....

The DVT/blood clot is gone! Yes, it is gone! The doctors are in shock because they expected it to still be there and take at least eight more weeks to disappear. The power of prayer, thoughts and all the time people have spent on hoping for the best for us -- well I believe it made the difference! Just in time for Christmas, I have a new hope... especially in miracles. Blessings and thanks to all of you for caring so much about this experience I've had. The baby is kicking away and probably having a party (at least it feels that way to me)! I'll write more about this after Christmas since I still have way too many gifts to wrap. Besides, I have some gingerbread cookie dough in the fridge waiting to be cut and baked. Oh and decorated. Sigh. I just can't help it...with everything that has happened this year I want to celebrate life and all that I love about Christmas. I had to give up a few things and that's okay. The gingerbread house didn't get built this year. At least the elf made it on the shelf and Santa will visit us tonight. Which reminds me, I better wrap this up because I still have to put those chocolate chip cookies in the oven for Santa to eat tonight! I'm sure my oldest daughter will put out some carrots for the reindeer too. 

At any rate, the DVT that I had was life threatening on October 9th as it was complete. Had I not gone to the ER well I could have lost my leg...or life. For this clot to be gone in 10 weeks is really amazing. If it wasn't for family, friends and faith... I seriously don't believe I would have been able to have the hope and positive outlook. There have been good and bad days. Now I will pay this forward. 
Thank you all for your support and it's been so nice to meet such wonderful people this year on Twitter. I wish you all a blessed holiday season and a new year full of hope. On this Christmas eve, may you sleep in heavenly peace. 

Sleep in heavenly peace...

My 14 year-old cat sure is!
