It’s my BIRTHDAY!!!! I cannot believe the day has finally arrived that I can say I am 30!!! Like the big 3-0…I feel like I have actually lived a little life at this point lol. See, I have been anticipating turning 30 since I was 28! My friends kept telling me, “girl, you’ve got to make it to 29 first!” Then, when I made it to 29 it turned into, “Ashley, you’ve got to make to 30!!!” I would have never thought that I could NOT make it to 30. I am a young, relatively healthy young woman out here living her life…that was until August 21st of this year. That day has changed the course of my journey. If you’ve been missing me, it is because I had bleeding on my brain (an AVM to be exact) which caused me to be in ICU for 6 days and the hospital for 7. I went from (almost) being a 30-year-old woman to a 3-year-old child. The last 2 months have been HARD but GOD!!! Soooo…. I am not going to go into full detail on what happened today, I will have another piece for you all to read about the details of what’s going on and my progress.
