Hi Auralie, Brandi is fine.  Physically. The doctor had us all scared
to death that she had AVM, but that's not what it was.  The spot on
the back of her head was more like the thick red birth marks that you
see on somebody's face, that is raised up a bit.  It's a concentrated
area of very fine veins, but nothing that will harm her.  Her
migraines and numbness are pretty much caused by STRESS.  Most of her
stress is self-induced.  A at 21 years old she is making some
decisions that end up causing a lot of this.  In debt, can't find a
job, college classes (which I am paying for), roommate moved out and
left her high and dry, medical bills stacking up for all of her stress
related illness problems, etc.  I gave her the option to move back
home so she can find work, pay off her bills and get back on her feet.
 No go - that would mean "failure on her part".  Like I
said...self-induced stress.  As a parent it's difficult to watch your
children make ridiculous decisions, and then suffer because of it.
But she'll have to do something pretty soon.  She can't keep going on
like this for long.  But THANKS for asking.

I hope everybody's Thanksgiving was a good one.  Ours was crazy busy,
and noisy.  All six kids were here.  Today - I am giving thanks for a
very QUIET day!  It's so nice!
