How this all started 

Me n my body have been through hell and back. People look at me and say “you don’t look sick.” Well let me start by saying thank you but if you really knew I would blow your mind.

My name is Lara, which my parents picked out for me from the very first movie they saw together. Dr Zhavigo who was in love with a nurse named Lara. Yes my dad is a doctor and my mom was a nurse.  So all my life I heard the theme “Lara’s theme”. I can start by saying I was born with a enlarged heart and a condition called fetal alcohol syndrome. Which the FAS has effected me my whole life. I did grow out of the enlarged heart thank goodness. I will fast forward to middle school and say my parents got divorced when I was 3 so I was raised by my self. I say that because my mom was a alcoholic and I had to take care of her. 

Not till high school was I aloud to move in with my dad. I started working at his office (internal medicine and cardiologist). But I will not be who I am if it was not for my dad teaching me everything I know.  I am 46 and still in love being in the medical field. 

So fast forward a few more years, to 1991. I met my Prince Charming at the age of 20. He had a dtr from a previous baby’s momma. We got together and had two children of our own.  Yes we are still married after 26 years and have been through many of storms. But that’s what makes us so strong. 

So now for the main reason I am writing this story, journey, blog. I am to the point I want to encourage people by my story. It started with a hysterectomy after I had my dtr 22 years ago. Advice to get done because of numerous tumors all over my uterus, Check (done). Next husband who was fit to all get out had to have both hips replaced due to a weird condition. He was 36! Week later I was having emergency surgery to take out my gallbladder on my  32 bday. Yes both of us were in bed at the same time having to have someone help with our kids and us. Our son that year had to have back surgery for a herniated disc and ruptured disc. The doctor advised no more sports for the rest of his life. Which was kinda sad because he was built like Jason whitten from cowboys. But my kids health was more important. My dtr had to have heart surgery at the age of 14 for a condition called Wolfe Parkinson White syndrome. 

Well this just the start of my story but I don’t want to loose your interest so I will blog you tomorrow. Sweet dreams! Sleep with the angels!
