They all say when it rains it pours. And it hasn’t stopped pouring since we got married. Seriously. Good thing we both like rain.

For those of you who came in late, Jason was diagnosed with MS in January/February. He’s on treatment three times a week now – shots on MWF which he has to administer himself, or con me into giving him. It’s been a challenge for both of us, but he’s over the worst of the side effects (so we hear) and has seen a marked difference in his energy level and right side fatigue factor. We still try to take it easy near the end of the week and are in the process of trying to get a new-ish reliable car with an automatic transmission so he can drive a car which doesn’t require constant work from his most MS affected area.

While getting an ultrasound/MRI for his MS, the doctors noticed a lump on his thyroid which isn’t related to multiple sclerosis. His family has a history of thyroid cancer so we were sent to a surgeon who did a biopsy and couldn’t conclude whether or not it was cancerous, so out it came along with half of my husband’s thyroid. After it was all said and done, there wasn’t any cancer, but the lump would have had to come out anyway since it was 2 inches in diameter. Jason is also recovered from that and there aren’t any side effects.

Along with all of this, our water heater exploded and flooded our apartment. Rent was increased and we have ten days to decide whether or not we want to move. And I’ve started developing wierd numbness/loss of sensation/tingly/not being able to breathe symptoms which have resulted in an MRI and waiting on more doctors. And I’m scheduled to get my gallbladder out on the 22nd. We leave the 26th for Boise, and the week before surgery will be in Seattle and Portland for graduations and concerts. Our wallet will be tiny in the month of May. But at least we can’t complain it’s been a boring ride.
