The results are in...

After months, numerous tests, no definite answers and continued symptoms, we have reached a (loose) conclusion on my health situation. What we know is that back on August 2, my body was fighting a bad infection. My white blood cell count was extremely high. Doctors are fairly certain this infection damaged nerves in my parasympathetic nervous system - the system that controls unconscious body functions like breathing, digestion, blood pressure, etc. What we don’t know is what the infection was or where it originated. We are confident that the infection is gone as my white blood cell count is finally back to normal. The symptoms, while some are still present, have slowly started to subside. Doctors cannot give me an exact timeline of how long these could last since it can take some time for nerves to heal. So, my job is to give my body the best environment possible to heal. I am ready to close this chapter of 2019 and start a new, healthier chapter in 2020.

SNEAK PEEK of my new manuscript!

A Second Chance Written by Jen Ekblad Property of Jenuine Enterprises LLC Chapter 1 Kate is a planner. She doesn’t like surprises. In fact, on her seventh birthday, when her parents surprised her with a trip to Disneyland, she locked herself in her bedroom and refused to come out. In the fifth grade, when the teacher changed her seating assignment, which meant she no longer sat by her best friend, Alicia, Kate refused to move. And, even into her young adult years, Kate insisted that the nurse count down from three and administer the shot precisely after the final count of “one.” Growing up, Kate spent more time with her nanny than her parents, who divorced when she was ten—their divorce was surprisingly a relief to Kate. But as she watched her mom struggle to find her purpose in life, Kate vowed that she would never place her purpose in that of a man. Needless to say, she set the bar so high that no man could meet her standard until her senior year at college. * * * “Off to class a
