The happenings!

Well it is true. I made it through my surgery! I still feel a little bit like i have been punched in the stomach, but all in all, much better. I cant wait until i am all the way better (next week or so) then i can fully enjoy myself and my food. We forgot our camera of course so we didnt really get to document this momentous occasion. Ty only got 1 picture on his cell that I will have to get uploaded. I am trying to fight back a new fear from developing though. It took me a LONG time to actually get out of the hospital. When it should have only been a few hours at the most. It turns out the the normal amount of anestesia one would give a person of my stature was WAY to much for me to handle. It took me a long time to wake up and about 5-6 more hours to be stable enough to go home. It really did a number on me. Every time i would doze off at the hospital my breathing would go way down and it would set off this alarm thingy to send the nurse rushing in. To say the least i was really scared at the hospital. I know now that things like this happen all the time and it really is not that big of deal but I cant help but wake up in the middle of the night and wonder to myself "was i breathing ok", "what if i cant wake up". And then it brings up the whole fear of whats going to happen if i have to have surgury again, i dont want to be scared. I am really trying to hold myself back and not let this become a problem. But I am feeling better and better everyday. Ty's dad just told me i probably wont feel absolutely 100% back to normal for THREE WEEKS!!! Patience is a virtue. At least thats what they tell me...
On to Christmas... We were spoiled once again. I got everything I asked (except a puppy, which wont happen until we have a backyard :( ) and so did Ty. I got a guitar and a knee length trench coat from Santa and from Ty I got some super cute shoes, jacket, and the cutest was a teapot that was filled with pieces of paper that have my favorite things to do, so when Ty and I are looking for a date, I can pull out a paper and have to do the thing on the paper. I thought that was super cute and very thoughtful of my favorite buddy! All of you "Office" fans out there might remember Jim gave a similar present to Pam for Christmas one year. CUTE!!! Ty got some clothes, books, shoes, DVD's and of course his ONE item on his wish list an Ipod Touch!!! I am telling you, the kid hasnt taken his hands off of it since he opened it!!! I think Santa created a monster!
One more piece of good news. One of my bestest buddies in the whole world my little Meg had her baby!!!! It was a total surprise, she went into labor and had her Christmas day!!! She wasnt due for a few more weeks even!! We love you Meg and Kade, Congrats on the little squirt. DeJanae is BEAUTIFUL!!! And I cant believe we are old enough to have one of these!


I know, I know...

Ok so I know it has been forever since I last posted. For this, I am sorry... The funny thing is, is that I read people blogs ALL the time. AND when people haven't posted in a long time, I feel like I am missing out and wanting to really catch up with them. Anyway, a lot has been going on these past few months. Ty is FINALLY finished with this semester and finals. We and esp. HE is very grateful for the little break before next semester. I have been going to work, and thats about it. However we have had a few changes take place.
1) We almost have our guest bathroom complete (hopefully within the next week)
2) We got to decorate our humble abode for Christmas, for the very first time WAHOO!!
(p.s its been so long posting I forgot how to turn the pictures around! Sorry)

3) Well I have been kind of sick for the last two-ish months. Dr appt after Dr. appt FINALLY we found out (and I knew it all along) I have to have my gall-bladder taken out on MONDAY!!! YA-freaken-HOO for finding out what was wrong AND getting the stupid thing taken out, but BOO for having to actually have surgery! I have never really had surgery before (minus oral surgery) so its going to be quite the experience. I am a little nervous, but mostly excited to feel good again.
I hope all is well with all of you. We are so excited for Christmas!! We are spending it with Ty's family in Logan and will get spoiled to death as always when we go up there. Mostly I think we are excited to have an ENTIRE week off! I will have to send a little shot out to you all to let you curious people know how gall-bladder surgery is next week. Until then, PEACE!
