Jeremy’s blood clot is down by his ankle! this may not seem like much, but apparently when the clot is in the vein in the thigh area, it’s very dangerous. we don’t know how this happened but we are still very VERY happy about it. we do still feel the vascular specialist will want to implant the ICV filter but this is still wonderful news. we are off to see the surgeon tomorrow for a pre-op appt and then back to the vascular doc on Friday to do the implant. the surgery is scheduled for a week from today, 1/17. I have to say it’s the scariest thing in the world to go through this, but I do feel Jehovah helping me throughout. that, and with all of your prayers and well-wishes, I can do this. we can do this! love you all.

#tbt to that one time when we were very close to the Watchtower sign –PATIENT UPDATE: so yesterday did not go as planned. Jeremy’s calf was really swollen and tight and he was still having some pain. we contacted his surgeon who said to go to the ER because there could be a potential blood clot. sure enough, after over six hours at the ER last night, it is indeed a DVT (or blood clot). Jehovah was very evidently with us throughout the ordeal. we breezed through a lot of the different steps there. we saw some incredible doctors/technicians. and a good friend showed up to provide love, support, and even dinner! Jeremy is now going to be taking some blood thinners for a while and we will see what the surgeon has to say about the procedure that is scheduled still for next week. we can’t thank you all enough for the prayers and texts/messages. –#watchtowersign #missit #itsnotthesame #brooklynheights #brooklyn #nyc

• can’t believe this happened a year ago already! according to the people at the Giraffe Centre, giraffe’s have very antiseptic saliva. this helps heal the cuts they get on their tongues from eating acacia berries, and as we know from convention from last year, acacia trees have a lot of thorns. Jehovah is incredible! • #giraffecentre #ilovegiraffes #kenya #nairobi #giraffes #rothschildgiraffe #africangiraffe #tembeakenya #magicalkenya #giraffesarebeautiful @giraffecentre_
