I have alcohol running through my veins!!!!

Literally...well, ok not really. But I do get alcohol injections about once a month (and not the "fun" kind!)

I have a facial Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) and am receiving ethyl alcohol embolizations with Dr. Wayne Yakes in Denver.

So while the alcohol isn't actually running through my veins (that would be really bad) it is being injected into them to destroy the AVM vessels and eventually provide a cure!

Check out my website to read my story about life with a facial AVM, meet my doctors, and stay up to date on my treatments through my "Denver Trip" reports!

Nathan's Craniotomy a success!!!!

What wonderful Thanksgiving news! Nathan's surgery yesterday was a success and he is doing well. I'm so happy for this beautiful little family and it is such a reminder that we have many things to be thankful for in our lives. Not everything is easy or the way we want it to be, but even in struggles and hardships there are great things that happen!

Here is the latest post from Jaimee on Nathan's progress!
