With everything in life going haywire, we decided to hold the Mayo…
We did a lot of praying. A lot of research. A lot of talking… And decided to hold off on our trip to Mayo Clinic. The expense was just too much right now and with no idea what’s happening with our housing situation (11th hour much?!)… it was too much to pile on. So we reached back to our ahhhhhhh-mazing doctor (whose birthday just happened to be that same day- HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOC!!!!) and we will be moving forward with a lumbar puncture (aka spinal tap- ouch) and treatment plan under his incredible care. We both feel great about it and are excited to move forward.
That guy in the picture above ⇑… he is my real-life superman, my knight in shining armor. As I type we are literally in the final hours trying to find out if we got our little fixer upper farm. This man has been working day and night to get a loan for our house, help repair our house to sell, try to keep stress-hives at bay…and still manages to squeeze in being the most incredible husband and father. Tonight he is feeling the stress. He came home and just fell apart. This man is incredible, the strongest man I know. We will know within hours, maybe less, if we have the house… prayyyyyiiiiiinnnnnnggggg!!!!
As always, we have tribe to brag on and be grateful for. From friends who showed up with bags of clothes for our growing littles, who had them over for pumpkin carving & fun, to our adopted aunt bringing dinner again to fill bellies and warm hearts. From friends & family to tribe we don’t even know…the angels that have prayed for us, friends who have cooked for us and who have been there every step of this challenging journey… it really does make the road less lonely.
Well friends, I feel like I am all over the place. We wanted to send an update about holding the Mayo (trip). I wanted to brag on the guy holding the Mayo (whipped). And now I’d like to announce that…at literally like the 11th hour…we have signed and sent the final closing disclosure (*insert ridiculous joy & exhausted celebration here*). After weeks of no sleep, hives and a plethora of new symptoms. After having to pay off credit cards and then having to close all of our credit lines… we will be closing on our sweet little fixer upper farm on Wednesday, Nov 8th! We don’t have much to move, but lots of carpet to pull, floors to lay and paint to roll and would love help! Let us know if you’d like to join us!
THANK YOU to the incredible team who all pulled together to get this done in time for us to get our home. It is a much-needed win for our family! This team will remain in our prayers, we are grateful for you!
We have plenty of hurdles ahead, but for tonight- victory!
MS/World- 0 , Gracie/Sweet B & Friends FOR THE WIN!
Sleep tight friends. Thank you all for the prayers and encouragement, they mean the world. You may be in for a treat soon and hear from my amazing spoonie sister across the country (& dare I say maybe even a peek into the secret life of a spoonie spouse from my sweet B soon….)! Thank you for taking the time to take a peek into our secret world of spoonies! I’ll be updating you soon with the many details this sweet man of mine thinks you’d want in on (dental emergencies & spinals & symptoms…oh my… 🙂 )
Time to celebrate with this hunky hubs of mine after weeks of stress! Goodnight friends!
Much love & excitement,
Gracie Kelly & My Sweet B
