My Favorite Seahorse (Today)

Well, I shared it here when the house got burglarized two years ago, might as well share about this:  Friday at the Farmer's Market, I had my first (and hopefully last) seizure.  It was the scariest thing in recent memory, and even worse for Paul, as he thought I was dying.  (Neither of us had ever witnessed a seizure, so I guess it looks terrible the first time).  My legs have been sore since then, and I have an appointment today with the doctor.  I don't like to miss work, but I guess this was a wake-up call that we've been pushing ourselves too hard, what with limited sleep and extra caffeine and ginseng, I guess we had to learn the hard way...

I want to get back out to the studio.  I'm off today because I have to go to the doctor, but I'd really like to go and make some new glass goodies.  After having the seizure Friday, I'm just a little scared to be out there without Paul, though I'm sure there's nothing to worry about.  It was probably just the perfect storm of stress and lack of sleep compounded by too much caffeine and ginseng (which is like caffeine).  I'd just like to hear that from the doctor.  Then I'll feel better about it. :)  In the meantime, this is my favorite seahorse.  If I blew a mental fuse and never got to do glass again, I'd probably keep all my critters, and wear him the most, though I'm sure that's not the case and everything will be just fine. :)
