Update & Prayers Needed!

dani@beautyfullmess.com - March 28, 2017

I’m finally writing this and asking for prayers!  We’ve had a few rough weeks, kiddos have been very sick with UTIs, bronchitis, ear infections, and sinus infections. I’ve been in and out of urgent care with severe stomach pains, among other things. Our kiddos are on the mend and I’m so thankful that this is coming to an end soon. However, I am super weak, …

What is Babesia? Where is my Ferretin?

dani@beautyfullmess.com - March 2, 2017

I wanted to share some of the WHY behind the Babesia that I am fighting tonight.  Babesia is one of the co-infections that the same ticks that gave me Lyme Disease have given to me as well.  Many of you have asked why I am always so tired or weak and fatigued… I know it seems like it should have a simple answer, but it …

Pack Light & Love Heavy

dani@beautyfullmess.com - February 27, 2017

I just finished tucking the kiddos in tonight, and I am sitting next to them on my bed starting to write this post.  I’m missing Cory madly as he’s been gone on the mainland back home in Bend for over a week working on Lone Mill as well as working tirelessly on our home so that it is ready for whatever is next. I’ve been …

Can I ask you a favor?

dani@beautyfullmess.com - February 18, 2017
Our family leaving the Klinik St. George in Bad Aibling, Germany... this very place marked the beginning of my journey back to health!

Hey there family and friends!  I was hoping to ask you each a favor… could you please each take the time to watch these two videos and share them on facebook, twitter, email, etc…??? We have to share this information.  This video is hard to watch, but it is so real.  I don’t know these people… but I was experiencing these same seizures every single …

We’re Weary… but Pressing On!

dani@beautyfullmess.com - February 13, 2017

We’re still here, but man Cory and I are weary! Many people are asking what is next?  Where we are?  When we are coming back home?… all these answers are still hard for us to come up with.  We are trying to figure out what is next, we are still here in Hawaii, and we wish we knew when we’d be coming back home. There …

Joy > Seizures

dani@beautyfullmess.com - January 10, 2017

Once again, it has been too long since my last post…  but this time there is finally a good reason for the time gone by.  On December 23rd after beginning some new and very strong medicines to fight off this horrible disease “babesia”, I began having insane bouts of pain in my head and stomach which led to a long night of seizure episodes.  These …

2016… there she went!

dani@beautyfullmess.com - January 10, 2017

It’s a brand spankin’ new year!  This New Years’ Eve left me emotional… I felt like highlights of our year scrolled through my mind as midnight quickly approached.  2016 was filled with so much good, amazing kiddos, lots of family time, pond swimming, seventh, sixth, and first grades, friends, and good-old fashioned fun on the ranch.  However, it was also a super duper rough year …

My Fight Continues…

dani@beautyfullmess.com - November 14, 2016

I’ve been wanting to sit down and write this update out for quite some time now… but you know how life just keeps running off ahead of you?  Well, tonight I’m making it happen! I’m still at the doctor daily receiving IV treatments to detox all these dead Lyme toxins from my body.  These IV treatments are also used to kill off the other two …

Thank YOU!

dani@beautyfullmess.com - November 1, 2016

We’ve been working on writing and sending off “thank you’s” to every person that has helped our family on this journey…  but we cannot see names for those of you whom gave to us anonymously through our online crowd funding site or those that gave to the benevolence fund. We are incredibly thankful and beyond blessed by EACH of you.  Your gifts helped us be …

Do NOTHING Monday!

dani@beautyfullmess.com - October 18, 2016

Thats right…  I was in desperate need of a “Do Nothing Day”. I think we all get there at times. I felt like it was super important for our whole family…  Greys little heart is hurting and she’s struggling with me leaving each day for doctors appts. She needed me…  and how long will I be able to say that?  Hayden and Lucy are older, …
