Hello AN family!
Time flies when life is good!
As I've promised, I'm here to provide another 6 month update.
Nov. was my 10 year post-op anniversary. Amazingly, I forgot and only realized a few weeks later (LOL). But, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Let's see...life has been good. My son's soccer team, which I am the Head Coach, finished undefeated! It took us four years to finally do it, finishing with one loss the previous three seasons, but we did it! What an amazing group of kids I had...loved every minute of it. Can't wait to do it all over again in a few months! Hard to believe, this year I will be celebrating 25 years of coaching youth sports. Looking forward to 25 more!
As you can see, having an AN is not the end. Heck, it's not something you had any control over...it just happens. Life goes on...better or worse. We have to remember to always look forward to what tomorrow brings. I won't lie...For me, it's an ongoing process. Yes, there are some days (especially during the cold, winter months) when I feel life has it in for me.
(I don't remember asking Santa for a case of the Shingles...ouch!) But you know what, as long as we remember that sun will rise tomorrow, things will get better.
Before I forget...Yes, I did have another MRI since last we talked. I am happy to report...well, nothing! That's right, nothing has changed. Still just a dark spot where a tumor used to live. My hearing and balance have not deteriorated any further, so all is well.
I have been contacted by several people since the summer...keep it coming. As always, I am here to talk, listen, offer options...whatever you need. You are not alone!
Talk to you soon friends!
