So Thankful... I'm a Lucky Girl

Wowzaaa my friends!
Let me just tell you that it has been a particularly rough morning for sure. As most of you have read about my recent medical issues, I was called in to the neurologist this morning to do a particularly painful EMG test. For those of you who aren't familiar with this specific kind of torture, feel free to click HERE.

Anyway, my doctor basically shocked me and stabbed my arm and leg muscles with needles for a half hour. As much as it was painful, I am glad to finally have a better view of what I am facing.

As for a possible Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, I think we've finally ruled that one out. I am being referred to a rheumatologist to continue diagnostics for Lupus or another auto-immune or blood disease. Thank you for all the messages and prayers, I love you guys so much!

Despite the rough morning, I was lucky enough to have BF by my side through the whole thing. I am not quite sure how I won the affection and love of such an amazing man, but I am so very thankful for him.

He offered a compassionate smile through the tears of the test, gave me a big hug and kiss on the forehead when it was over, and even treated me to a Starbucks {He loves me :)}.

So anyway, now I am back in the office and excited that it's finally Friday!! After having the day off to honor MLK Jr. and a snow day yesterday, I am thinking I could get use to these 3-day work weeks!

Lucky for me, Mom, Dad and Sis are driving up to visit me in good ol' KC for the weekend! Mom's birthday is on Sunday, so I can't wait for all of us + BF to go out for dinner, big girl furniture shop {wooo! More on this later...}, relax, and just have a good ol' time!

{ What fun plans do you have going on this weekend? }

From the bottom of my heart,
have a beautiful weekend!


  1. Oh, not fun. I'm still praying for you sweet girl! I'm glad that BF was there with you! So sweet!

  2. Yuck, poor thing! Glad they are on the road to finding out what is wrong but sorry you had to go through such a painful experience. Glad to hear the BF was able to be with you through it all. Sending prayers and hugs your way!

  3. I've had an EMG on my arm before and hated every minute of it, so I feel for you. I am so glad that multiple sclerosis is ruled out, I am sure with time everything else will be too... Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
    I was supposed to have a 3 day weekend but not looks like the manager is sick so I might have to fill in for her, otherwise I just plan to rest and go to the beach as much as I can!
    Have a great time with your family and BF.

  4. Aw sorry your morning started off sucky...but you're lucky to have people (BF) by your side who really care about you! I'll be praying for you! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  5. You're so strong! Sending you lovely thoughts for the rest of your day and weekend! :)

  6. My sweet MEG! Goodness gracious. I will keep on praying for you. I'm so sorry you had a rough Friday :( I hope everything gets worked out and your MDs can figure out what is going on. Sending happy thoughts your way. You're inspiring :)

  7. Keeping you in my prayers, Megs! It is a tough process but I'm sure you're handling it beautifully! It also sounds like you have an amazing support system and your bf is AWESOME! Lucky YOU!

  8. I hope you get an answer to your medical problems soon! I have MS and my sister-in-law has Lupus so let me know if you have any questions or need any support from the auto immune disease club!

  9. I am glad that they may have ruled out MS... I hope that you get very good news very soon. Have a Great Weekend!!

  10. You poor, sweet girl. So sorry you had to endure that pain, but I'm glad it's over with, and I'm so glad your wonderful BF was with you, and treated you to SBux afterwards. You totally deserved it! :) Have a fabulous weekend darling!

  11. Hi! You came and visited me today and I decided to return the favor! I love your blog! You seem so fun and similar to me! I am looking to get into some blog swaps and hops and all that fun stuff so let me know if you have anything like that coming up! Thank you again for coming by today!!

  15. That is definitely not fun. Saying a prayer for you during this time. It's a wonder what we would do without someone to help us through these kinds of things, itsn't it? Sounds like you've got a great guy. :-)
