Today my blog is dedicated to my dear husband, Eugene. It is his 49th birthday! Happy Birthday hun! Here is a picture of him doing what he loves, driving his boat! (That is when he's not driving his 4-wheeler or hunting!)
Anyways I am very thankful to have him here. This has been a rough year for Gene. A year ago (September 17) he started passing out and stopping breathing! It looked like Anaphaletic (sp?) shock, but the paramedics thought I was nuts. Anyways it continued to happen every month or so clear through the winter! I thought I was losing my husband, and I was scared to death! After several doctors, thousands of dollars in tests, hundreds of tests and watching the doctors scratch their heads, we finally found someone who could tell us what was wrong! He has developed a rare condition called Chronic Cold Urticaria, or an allergy to the cold! Not cold weather necessarily, but cold air or cold water! He is now on allergy medicine and we have not had an event for 6 months! And guess what, they told us that it is anaphaletic shock he is going into, so now we have an Eppy pen just in case! The good news through all of this, is that his heart is in great shape, he has no neurological problems, and we have seen every inch of the inside of his body! :)
So Happy Birthday today and let's hope we are on top of this for good! By the way did you know that Gene is 4 million some odd seconds younger than me? He has it all worked out, and loves to tell people. Actually it works out to 4 1/2 months! I am an older woman! But I keep telling him he may be younger but I look better! :)
I love you Hun!
