A Life Update

This is for those of you who have been e-mailing asking, "How is Rex?" Well, things are about the same and here is what we do know. He has had a couple of neurological events that have been hard to diagnose that have left him very dizzy and with slight memory issues. All of the scary stuff has been ruled out , but right now he is unable to drive or go back to work. Rex says that if he could get over being dizzy that I could remember things for him! :)

This is the first time in Rex's working life that he has been home for more than 3 days other than vacation, so needless to say, this is very different for both of us. Here is how we handled the disappointing news today that if we do go to UAB for another opinion that there is a 3 month wait.... I packed a picnic and we went to our favorite park at the river where we thoroughly enjoyed the sunny day and slowly walked the path around the park. Someone even commented on how sweet we looked holding hands. What they didn't know is that the hand holding is to keep Rex from falling off of the path. I keep reminding him that if he starts to fall to release my hand! :)

We do know that God is in control and has not forgotten us.

It was so good to meet you Monday night! I am so sorry you all are going through this now! Have been praying and know that you take so much comfort in knowing God knows everything and has everything in His control! Was amazed and encouraged by your peace you show! Susan

I am so glad you were able to enjoy a picnic and stroll in the park. I do understand and share your disappointment in the delay of obtaining an appointment. I hope you are on a cancellation list, and an opening magically appears. It does happen, and I especially pray it happens for Rex.

Prayers being said that some answers come your way!

I would keep calling UAB - maybe they will have a cancellation and he can get in sooner. Prayers for your family.

Hi Michie,
My prayers are with and Rex. Keep your chin up buttercup. Have they ruled out inner ear issues? I know a few folks that have suffered the dizzies and it turned out to be this.
