Look Out World!!!!!!!!!

Guess who will be driving again soon? Yep!!!!! I know my friends and family have been following this unbelievably stressful and frustrating process of trying to get my license back. Well, my friends, this horrible journey has suddenly and unexpectedly come to an end! I shared last week about the argument I got into with my Primary Care Doctor because he decided that he would not be willing to sign my DMV medical Evaluation form and that I should be cleared by a Neurologist instead even though 3 different neurologists (not counting 2 in Texas) ruled out the possibility of it being Neurological. So after our heated debate he kind of gave in with a stubborn agreement to sign my paperwork but to make it clear that he has advised me NOT to drive until cleared again by a neurologist. I so dreaded turning it in as I knew it would cause more problems then help.
Then this morning I received a very unexpected phone call from the last DMV hearing officer that interviewed me. He went over the paperwork with me and kept going back and forth about what to do and then said he decided to approve me to DRIVE AGAIN!!! I expected many months more of hassle and not being able to drive. So that's great right? It gets better. I am legally obligated to take a behind the wheel drivers test (anyone suspended for medical reasons is required to) but he was able to schedule that for me on Wednesday the 19th. That's in 5 days!!! If I understand correctly if I pass this test my license will be restored! It gets even better... I did not choose March 19th~ it was assigned to me. Does anyone know what March 19th is? The day I celebrate EXACTLY one year since my last seizure!!! How cool is that? It's so clear that God was making it obvious to me that He's had it planned this way all along.

I am a bit nervous about the driving test. I have not been behind the wheel for almost 1.5 years and I may not legally do so until then so I'm going in quite rusty. I sure wouldn't turn down prayers for it! ;)
