Hello all. It has been quite some time since I have updated our sad little blog. I am stuck sitting at BYU with Michael and unfortunately I don't have my camera with me, so I can't put any pictures on this post. For those of you who are disinterested in reading this any longer feel free to flip to someone elses! :) I'll be sure to put pictures up next time. Anyways, just wanted to update everyone on what's been going on in our life. Everything has been going pretty well. Work has been going great, Michael has been doing absolutely amazing in school and we have been having a lot of fun together. This last Monday I worked in the morning, stopped off at the grocery store, made dinner, and cozied up to the third twilight book. It was one of those days where I felt like I had got so much accomplished. It was a good day. Michael had been at school all day and had text me to say he was going to be in the basement at BYU until 7:30 so he wouldn't have reception and then he would still have to read 4 hours after that. But it was one of those texts where the words didn't end up right so I had to just try to figure out what it said. I enterpreted it to say he would be home at 7:30 but that he would still have to read for 4 hours after. I figured that would be great since I was planning on reading as well. Anyways, about 7:45 I called and asked him where he was (and we figured out the misunderstanding) but since I was going to be reading too Michael said he would just read at home. (He doesn't study at home because I tend to be too distracting! :) My bad. It is just so hard to not talk to him about something when I think about it!) Anyways, so he came home and he was reading in the family room because he likes to read sitting up and I was reading in bed because I like to be really cozy when I read. Anywho, next thing I know I am laying in bed and I wake up and Michael is talking to a 911 Operator about sending an ambulance! The first thing I thought was we can't afford that!!! It turns out that I had a seizure. I guess all of the sudden Michael heard me making this weird weezing noise and when I didn't respond he ran in, I was laying with my head kinked with blood coming out of my mouth and my legs twisted out of bed! He called 911, and sometime between all of this and the E.M.T.'s arriving I woke up. It was the weirdest feeling in the world. I don't think anyone that hasn't experienced it could really understand. We went to the E.R. and I had alot of tests done and alot of doctors visits and hopefully they'll be able to figure out what went wrong. I have an appointment with a neurologist on the 10th and he should be able to tell us alot. I have never had a seizure in my whole life. Anyways, I don't want this to be completely depressing, just wanted to let you all know what's going on. As of now, I am not able to drive or be alone. (In case I have another seizure) It has been a rough week but I am just so grateful for my family and all that they do to love and support Michael and I. It has been so emotional, and so different than i'm used to but I am just so grateful that I misunderstood Michael and that he was there when it happened. I don't even know what would have happened if he wasn't. I have had such a different outlook on life and I am just so grateful to be alive with so many great people to surround Michael and I. I am depend alot more on other people for rides, and for hanging out with me while Michale's at school and it's be very different. We have experienced some amazing blessings and I know that there is a reason that this is happening now and I hope to just make the best of it and learn what I need to learn from this experience. Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know how much I love you. I can't drive, but if you ever need anything, I am just a short drive away! (For you!) :) This life is so short, and so amazing, and in a weird twisted way I am grateful for the reminder. Hope you all have a great week. Also, if I don't have your blog listed on mine make sure to let me know you have a blog! I have been trying to find people's blogs but I may have missed some peoples! Don't be offended. I am not good at this stuff yet! :)
Lots of Love!
