I just found this site through "Blogs of Note". I'm so excited about this site and the recipes look amazing! WOW! Click HERE to visit there too!

MRI Results and More!

The good news is my heart is normal in every way. No blockages, good valves, good size heart... I'm just waiting on what the blood test showed, probably nothing.

So, that's a bit of good news for the day, but I was hoping they'd see something so I don't have to wear my heart monitor. That's ok since my heart has been acting up and this monitor has been able to send it to the people that are watching me. This monitor is called ACT by Lifestar and it constantly sends signals from my heart sensors through a cell phone which is pretty cool. The only bad thing is I have to stay within 10ft of it or it looses the signal. I'm thinking with all these tests we'll meet our deductable so stuff will be paid for 100% after that. This is one expensive time in our life, but you also have to do what it takes to take care of you.

We get to go to the temple tomorrow night for the first time in 6 months! I don't know why I didn't go by myself ever, I just think now it's better when you go with your husband. Marc's extremely excited to be able to go. Our trials have been hard and now we're starting on the right track together. He's worked hard to get to where he is now and feels stronger than ever in the gospel. We're really excited and are really grateful for my mom making it possible by going way out of her way for us. I love her, she's the best mom and grandmother you could ever ask for.

I didn't forget about posting pictures of the zoo, I've just run out of time tonight but I'll post tomorrow. I will have time then.

Much love!

Tuesday Blah's

Well, today is kind of a blah day.
I had my MRI on my heart on Friday and am waiting for any news that might bring. Hopefully there was something there so I don't have to mess with this heart monitor for the full 28 days (well 25 now).

We're going to the zoo today so I'll post some pics of that trip. I figured we'd take advantage of a good day before all the storminess comes starting tomorrow.

What are you doing today?

6 Years today

Marc and I were married 6 years ago today. While it's been really hard and we've had good times, I'm overall grateful for our trials and true happiness that have come from our trials. While we're still going through trials we're at least getting stronger together and I'm grateful we're together. We were married in the Manti temple by my first children's (the two I placed with a wonderful family) I think great-grandfather who was scheduled to be our sealer that day. We at the time didn't know the significance of that day and our paths crossing but when I wrote to my family about my marriage I got the response that our sealer was their family member and had also sealed those two sweet children to their mother and father. I know that the Lord had shown complete love that day and I knew I was marrying the right man and that we were meant to be together forever. I'm grateful for the events that transpired that day 6 years ago. I love Marc more now than I did that day. I know that Heavenly Father has a divine plan for all of us and I'm thankful for the small glimpses we can get as we go through life as to who we are and who we can become.
