Our Summer in Pictures- Part 2

This summer was crazy and busy.  We went to baseball games, celebrated birthdays, hugged and kissed more goats, etc.  Unfortunately, most of my summer was clouded by some anger and frustration due to the blood clot I developed in my right arm, compliments of a radiology department at a certain hospital here in St. Louis, that shall remain nameless.

I spent a lot of time crying and being angry at the situation.  The side effects of the coumadin were starting to catch up to me. My hair was falling out, I started experiencing severe lower back pain, and my "monthly visitor" was HORRIBLE! (sorry, TMI, I know) Not to mention the WEEKLY trips to the lab for blood draws to determine the correct dosage of coumadin. 

Bottom line is...I am alive and well.  I am not at risk to develop any more blood clots and so I am thankful for that.  I only have 3 days left to be on blood thinners and I am going to celebrate!

Although I feel like I was in some sort of "funk" for that last 3 months, I still took pictures...and I'm glad I did!  I have enjoyed looking back at them because a part of me feels like I wasn't really there. Or that I was there...just not myself.  So seeing them brings back good memories and makes me smile!  I hope some of them make you smile, too!

Sorry about your summer funk, but so happy to see you back here! Looks like you had a fun and love filled summer. I think the ice cream pictures are my absolute favorites of both sets! Can't wait to see more.
