Just tell them. Are they adults or young children?

Young adults in mid to late 20's.

Okay but my nephew will have to be told via email. I don't have his phone number and haven't seen him in nearly 3 years. He didn't even come to his sisters wedding and her 2nd anniversary is coming up this fall.

I am thankful this test is over with but leery since I know there will be another just like it to check if embolization worked or not.

Hurricane reprieve. Holding my breath and watching what is happening since I have family in Orlando.

I have family in the Wellington area. Still I'm thankful that Antonio and I are safe. We have a roof over our head and we know where our next meal is coming from. Thank thee O Lord for your bountiful gifts.

That I've managed to survive (so far) all the stress brought on by my crapsurance company.
My cousins in TX are safe, so is my 2nd cousin in FL.

I am thankful I survived the craniotomy surgery. Turns out it was ready to burst and kill me.

I have also decided the whooshing I hear now in my right ear is a good thing as it can serve as an early warning system that my BP is getting too high. I still have the fenestrated PICA in my head that could become an aneurism and burst at some point in the future if my BP goes up and stays up too high for too long.

Shocked I am glad you've sorted out the immediate problem. Are they going to keep you on a low dose of BP meds as a preventive?

So far no but I'm going to ask what I should do about it. It could mean more brain surgery similar to what I just had in the future should it show it's starting to develop a weak spot.
This helps explain what it is a bit, especially the pic of the loop a fenestration forms that shouldn't be there: https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.1007/s12311-008-0002-7.pdf

Dry reading I know but quite informative. I was born with this just like I was born with the DAVM.

Nice business owners. I was on my way home from running errands, and stopped in at a local farmers market store. It's an old, converted gas station, and they sell all kinds of local produce, natural products, and other neat, crafty stuff. They carry the local coffee roaster's seasonal blends, so I thought I'd stop in for some special coffee. There was a sign on the door that said they had to go let the dog out, so shop and leave money on the counter - estimate tax best you can. Smile I got to buy my coffee, leave a check, and not worry that I'd get in trouble.

I am extremely thankful for my mom....who has stood by me through all of this medical drama despite her fears. I am also thankful for my friends here, who have also stood by me a lot more than my sis or nephew has. I consider you all more family than most of my actual family!

I am thankful those dreadful icepick headaches have diminished so much already. Now onto the glorified tonsillectomy......Wednesday.

Baby shower is 10 days later and I'm going no matter what. Hope there's something there I can actually eat.

The blood balloon that was my right tonsil didn't burst! My throat is so sore I can barely swallow, can't talk without pain, can't sleep. If I can get through the next 3 weeks.......seems like forever right now.
