Most of you are probably wondering why I would post this picture. But, this is my current feeling. Let me give you a little recap…

I’ve suffered from migraines for most of my life, but for the last few years they’ve gotten increasingly worse. For the last 2 years I’ve been on a great regimen with my neurologist and my migraines have been to a minimum. For me, that’s maybe once a month lasting 1-3 days; completely tolerable. But, for the 2nd time in two years I’ve had one lasting over 20 days that just will not break. Today, is the 33rd consecutive day… I’ve had a slew of tests, IV medications, spent several days in the hospital, and even had an occipital nerve block procedure done which only made it worse. My doctor has referred me to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to see their Neurology department and we’re hoping for some answers. Unfortunately, they’re so booked that it will be a couple of months before that can take place.

Now, about the picture — I bought tickets back in Februrary for my mom, uncle, and myself to see Billy Joel on November 11th…We’ve been counting down for MONTHS! He’s been one of my favorite artists since I was a kid. Because of this migraine I wasn’t able to attend. Mom and I stayed home but my aunt and uncle were able to have a great date night and said the show was incredible. They sent me tons of pictures, videos, and even brought me this hat that I am treasuring.

Now, New goal:

  • Billy Joel – Madison Square Garden

All that being said, I’m hoping that I can give a little attention to An Oklahoma Girl in the mean time. I’ll try to keep you posted on my journey.

I am going to start a series for planning/organizing so please look out for that. While I’m working from home, and juggling lots of doctors appointments the planner/organizing junkie in me is shining bright!

I hope everyone is ready for the holidays, if you didn’t see my previous post please check it out, you can get a great deal on some beautiful Christmas Cards!

Let me know what is going on in your life! If you aren’t following me on Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat – you should be! I’ll try and update more frequently on there as this journey to Mayo starts to happen.

I also want to take  a minute to give a huge Thank You to my mom, she’s been with me to all the appointments, stayed through the entire hospitalization, drove me to my procedure, and has taken me anywhere I needed to go since no one really thinks I should be driving at the moment. She’s put her life on hold while mine has been chaos, and is gearing up to head to Minnesota with me. For a girl who’s almost 30 it’s hard to give up control. But Mom, I so appreciate you! Love you!
