Unfaithful Servant

     This is the longest break I've ever taken from posting since I started this blog, and so.damn.much has happened during that time.

     I'm back in Missouri, and my husband's still in North Carolina. This is a less-than-ideal situation, especially when you consider that the main reason we moved back was so that he could resume treatment for his Marfan's with his specialists here. He can't come back until he secures a job in St. Louis, and so far has had no luck. This is, obviously, beyond frustrating for us, as it would be for anyone in the same situation; it's made worse by the fact that he's still dealing with the repercussions from an emergency surgery that went down right before I had to leave to come back to the Midwest.

     Yeah. Emergency retinal detachment surgery. Why? Because it decided to detach the week before I was scheduled to leave for good. I was able to push my departure date back by a few days, but I couldn't stick around as long as I would have liked, because I was lucky enough to have a job waiting for me, and I already had a scheduled start date. So that happened.

     There are about 936 other things that have happened in the four months since I've posted, and I'm finally in a place where I can start doing this again with regularity. I know nobody's hanging on the edge of their seat waiting for these updates, but I've had enough conversations with enough people from locales near and far to believe that reading about my and my husband's adventures with Marfan Syndrome help them somehow, in some small way.

     And so the saga continues...
