So I gave up on my 365 project! Maybe next year? LOL
I've had a lot of great sessions with adorable families and the sweetest kids but my time to sit on the computer to edit has been thin so my blogging time is even worse! And I have a few good reasons! So let me give you a sort run down but first a business story!
When I decided to start my own photography business, I was conflicted on the name I used for my business because my last name is Setzler and I've learned in the last six years of marriage people just can't pronounce it the right way (and its said just how it's spelled SET-Z-LER) And I also figured clients might have a hard time spelling it or doing the best thing ever sharing my info! So my first thought was to keep my name but on cards maybe call my self MS Photography, but then I thought it was a bad idea. When I hear MS I think of Multiple Sclerosis, and well I would have hated to be pulled up when people are searching for something like that and I didn't want people to associate me with that, and not a children's photographer. So I stuck with my tricky last name!
Fast forward to this summer! It was a crazy summer lots of big birthday bashes I was throwing friends moving, and just crazy kids! My husband Josh has always been a big supporter of what I do and I'm very thankful for him! I did a 365 photo of him in his band. They had played a show out at the lake in a big bike fest and it was 107 outside that day. Josh came home worn out and he was having trouble walking and his left hand lost a lot of function. He had been seeing a sports medicine therapist for some of these issues, and everyone was up in the air with what was going on with him. A month later 1 week to the date after Jake's second birthday josh had a terrible limp, and was just tired from short walking trips.
July 16th, Josh walked him self into the ER and he was swarmed with doctors, and a lot of neurologist! One week after staying in the hospital and 3 or 4 MRI's and a stroke watch his fabulous neurologist suggest a lumbar puncture even though he knew what was going on with Josh he wanted to be sure, Josh left the hospital with a diagnoses of MS... yea what are the odds. I read all the books I could buy at b&n and learned a ton! Josh is now walking almost normal unless he gets really tired, he eats a gluten free diet, low in sugar, low in saturated fats, and about 20 vitamins a day.
I would say at this point we are doing much better we have gotten into a normal routine. He's back at work and I'm very proud of him for how strong he is! He has always supported me so I'm doing my best to support him, finding all the things that make it easier on him, and pushing him into physical therapy! I'm very amazed at how far he's come, and I'm thankful that we have the Faith that we do. God will get you through anything and it's proof looking at my family!
