Okay so I woke up this morning with a migraine. I took my meds and then took a nap. And guess what! Yup, I woke up from my nap with another migraine. I just can’t win today! lol
Well ladies and gents it’s that time again. I’ve found some new blogs that I just love love love! So that means I feel a desire to introduce you. I urge you (very strongly) to click the links and check them out! 🙂 Without further ado…
London McCalling ~ Shannon, Matt (her dh), Waverly (I just adore this name!) and Oliver are all from the US but have relocated to London, England when Matt was offered a job (possibly transferred). What began as a blog about their new lives in London has also become a blog about the family’s struggle to find a diagnosis for Waverly and to ultimately cope with the diagnosis and how it effects them all as a family.

We Have A Diagnosis
Waverly has mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS), specifically it is known as MPS III or Sanfilippo Syndrome. Even though we have been waiting anxiously for a diagnosis, nothing could have prepared us for this devastating news. I am not emotionally or physically capable of writing more at the moment. Here is a link for further information: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001210.htm
I went back yesterday and read her blog from beginning to end. Her family is beautiful and I feel for her during her struggle to find and cope with a diagnosis for Waverly because we’ve been in a similar situation with Gavin for the past 7 years.
What the heck was I thinking?! ~ This is Nikky’s blog. Nikky is married to Chris, a military officer currently stationed in Texas (I have a huge soft spot for those serving in the military but that’s another blog.), and currently pregnant with their first child.

Transitioning from Myspace to the Open Waters of the Net
at 11:57:00 AM
Blogging on Myspace is easy. No one reads them. Ever. Well that is unless you have friends who seem to hang on every written word you write. What the heck could I possibly say that is that freaking important?! Nothing that I know of!!
Mostly I have ranted about my trials and tribulations of infertility, the continuing shifting waters called community college, my periodic rants about people I find incredibly stupid (like my recent rant about a cult-like “church” from Kansas). Although I have raved about incredibly brave people (men and women serving in the military) and an outstanding group of people who I recently had the privilege of seeing The Patriot Guard Riders. I am not going to say that some of my ranting (and raving too) has not been without some controversy. (I know there are at least 3 people who will read this, roll their eyes and laugh)
So, here I go. Making my world wide web debut into blogging. No flameing (at least no real live flames) please.
Nikky is another due date buddy that I have found with God’s help through blogs. Her original due date was July 25th (two days after me) but has recently been moved to July 18th (just as great a day since it happens to be MY birthday! lol). She is currently a college student working to find a balance between her roles as wife, student and mother-to-be. Her blog strikes me partly because we are “due date buddies” but also because we seem to have similar personalities. Plus she’s just cool. 🙂
There now you have been formally introduced. So…Go! Read! Comment! 🙂
17 down ~ 118 to go
