Today I’m thankful for Garreth’s health. For as long as we’ve been on a medical journey with Aidan, we’ve been on one with Garreth as well. The similarities have been the lack of solutions and a plethora of medical professionals. The differences have been that while I’ve been intensely engaged with Aidan’s medical world, I’ve been too exhausted to engage in Garreth’s. Garreth is amazing and wonderful in many ways, and (notice I didn’t say but) we have very different ways of getting things done. Garreth has dealt with chronic fatigue and incapacitating headaches for 10 years. The combination of the stress of Aidan’s initial hospital stay (huge trigger for auto-immune diseases) and being a former rugby player (don’t get me started about continual brain trauma) set his path in motion. It’s been a long and frustrating road but he’s in such a good place now. Since Garreth was diagnosed with Celiac Disease this winter, he’s been gluten free. He’s also gotten very serious about getting in shape and working out again. This all leads to where we’re going with Miles……..
