“But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge” –Psalm 94:22

So, it’s definitely been a while. I looked at the date of the last post–April 5th–and realized that was an obscenely long time ago, so I should probably get on an update! A fair amount has gone on, and the last week or so has been crazy, so I’ll go back and highlight some of the bigger points, starting from where I left off, at Easter.

Ok–this is probably going to be a long one–there’s a good amount to update, so buckle up. 🙂

First, let’s start with a low and go back to over a week ago (Friday, March 27th) when I was doing my tests/scans at Northwestern. Continue reading
