So much change!
Wow! What a whirlwind couple of months. Here's the short story.

First, I got accepted to nursing school! I'll be doing a 4 year bachelor of science in nursing program with will make me a Registered Nurse by the end of it all. It's exciting, daunting, freeky, and something i'm so happy to finally be in the right place in my life to do it.

Secondly, I quit my job! I was there for almost 11 years so it was tough saying goodbye to all the great people and leave behind a completely different career.

Thirdly, I moved to a fantastic townhouse three weeks ago. It has all the space we need and I have my new student room set up. I'm really done with boxes though now. Really done. We moved in a heat wave and I was crashing every day from the heat. Bad timing!!

Next week I go see my neurologist for my next check in for my clinical trial drug FTY720 aka Fingolimod and now apparent Gilenia. I'm a bit leary about staying on the pill considering how I react to getting a cold. It's one thing to be able to call in sick at work but an entirely different thing for school to be sick for 14 days non stop. I wonder if there's a better fit for my changing life now?

And sadly one of my beloved cats is having some health challenges and I'm waiting for final results to see how much longer I'll have the privilege to know him. He doesn't act sick, but we've found a lot of stuff going on inside him. :(
