My Crazy Life

oh my.... my life has been so completely crazy lately that it doesn't even feel like my life. Lets start by going back about 3 weeks ago when Brady, Jaxton and I went up to Idaho for the Brown Family Reunion. It was a blast, we had a ton of fun and it was really nice to get the whole family together. After we had our fun in Idaho, we went on down to Utah to visit my family. Things were going great, I was getting a little bored because my parents were working every day except the weekend. I was so excited for the weekend to come so we could finally do something as a family. Then one afternoon I started having this cramping in my side. I just though it would go away eventually but after spending a night in pain that resulted in little sleep, we decided it would be best to go to the hospital just in case. The reason we really wanted to be careful was because I'm pregnant. yay! We are super excited and we are due in February. So because of the pregnancy we wanted to be extra careful just in case something were happening. So I get to the hospital, the people are really nice.. I'm getting really hungry but they won't let me eat. lame. So after they ran a bunch of tests they came in to tell me that I had appendicitis and that I would have to go into surgery immediately. I started to freak out because I've never had surgery and the thought of going under makes me nervous. Brady had been there with me the whole time but the baby was with my mom. So I called my mom and asked her to bring the baby so I could see him before I went into surgery. Let me tell you, there is nothing like surgery to help you get your life into perspective. So my mom, step-dad and baby get to my room and like 2 min later they come to take me into surgery. It was so nerve racking... I really was upset. The surgery went fine and I was in the hospital overnight. The annoying part of surgery is that you have to have a completely empty stomach but then the pain medication they put you on requires you to have eaten something... So right away I was nauseous and it basically never stopped. I couldn't eat anything! It was horrible. After they released me I was sick for the next three days until I decided that putting up with the pain was way better than dealing with being nauseous. Then we had to go home... a longggggg.. 10 hour drive back to phoenix. It wasn't too bad in the car though. So my life went on and was great... until the night of my sister-in-laws wedding. We were at the reception and right after I ate some of the amazing food, I started to feel this cramping in my stomach. I knew it wasn't my appendix because I had just gotten it removed so that option was out. It was a much different pain though, it was all throughout my stomach and it just kept on getting worse and worse. We decided to leave the wedding early because I was in so much pain. We went home and I decided that I wanted a priesthood blessing. My visiting teacher Shanda Riggs (who is my personal angel) was so great at contacting people for me and helping me find someone to help in the blessing. Mt neighbor came over and gave me a blessing. It was great. I really love blessings. We didn't really know what we should do but we decided to just see if it would go away on it's own after some time. I tried to take a nap but I just couldn't fall asleep. After the movie we were watching was over we decided to head on up to the hospital. I'm so thankful for my neighbors because not only did they give me a blessing but they offered to watch my little one while we were in the hospital. So we drop him off and head over to the Banner Gateway hospital. It's like a 30 min drive so I wasn't at all excited for the trip. So as we are driving and the pain is getting worse all of the sudden my stomach started hurting way worse then it had hurt all day. It only lasted a second but the pain was so horrible I just started screaming. Then I couldn't tell if I was starting to feel better or if they just didn't feel as bad compared to the really bad one I had. But eventually they got better and better and completely left but we were already at the hospital so I figured we might as well stay since I was pregnant.. just in case. Well to make a long story short, we got to the hospital at 12:30 am and didn't even see anyone until 4. After I saw the nurse.. not even a doctor..... who couldn't tell me a thing, we decided to go home. It was the lamest hospital visit I have ever had...

Well, this is the first part of what has been going on in my life, I will update you on the rest in a couple of days... we have been crazy busy around here so time is limited.

see ya!
