Vertigo - it's not just a rooftop bar in Chicago...

After a lovely weekend with the family which included eating out (in a real restaurant!) , I woke Monday morning to the room spinning. Just my luck to be diagnosed with vertigo. No real cause, no real cure. Somewhat of a waste to drive all the way to Urgent Care to be told it could last for 3 weeks or so.


This diagnosis was added to my never-ending list titled, "Weird things that happen to Sarah"


Other items on the list include:
  • Being kissed by a gas station attendant

  • Having some random (drunk) guy grab my behind while on a tour of New Orleans

  • Having some 12 year old kid try to grope me while I was walking around a college campus

  • Having to swing and hit the kid with my umbrella

  • Winning $1,000 on a scratch lottery ticket (not all the weird things are bad things)

  • Winning a gift certificate to a jewelry store and using it to buy a nicer wedding band with diamonds in it

  • Getting pregnant with twins even though I never did fertility treatments and twins do NOT run in my family

This list goes on and on. As Keith and I walked out of the office, I had my WTF moment as to why in the world would I get vertigo? Not like I don't have much else going on with my life.

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today. I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine. And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays. I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

Book Review: Sweet Tea and Spirits

Book: Sweet Tea and Spirits Author: Angie Fox Verity Long and her ghostly sidekick, Frankie, are on track for another adventure! The book starts out with Verity receiving a mysterious call from the Sugarland Historical Society, stating there was a murder. But how can there be a murder when no body is found? She enlists Frankie's help to investigate, which leads to a humorous and engaging story! The book is well-written, like the others in this series.  I enjoy reading cozy-mysteries, especially those that focus on the paranormal.  The author does a great job of creating funny characters with depth.  I definitely recommend this series, and do feel that the reader should start at book one. *I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Two Years

I wanted to write a moving and inspirational post about celebrating my two-year post-transplant milestone. (I also wanted to post a nice family picture, where everyone was looking at the camera, the twins did not have to be separated because they were hitting each other, the shorter boy on the right was not squeezing his brother's stomach too tightly, and I did not have a glowing bulb of sunlight shining brightly on my lady parts, but well... you know... that's life.) Instead I will share one of my favorite pictures of this day. We had wanted to do an outdoor autumn photo shoot with my family (grandparents included). It was scheduled for the end of September in Chicago. So of course, I bought (matching) long-sleeved shirts for the boys, had a pretty (color-coordinating) sweater picked out for my girl, Keith was going to wear his grey pullover, and I lovingly pulled out my tights and boots for what I thought was going to be a cool and beautiful fall day. It was 88 degrees
