First Post of 2010!!!

Happy 2010!!! Ok, I'm a few days late. I hope you all had a Happy New Year and I'm sending Blessings out to ALL of you in this New Year!!! ♥

Thank you all for your well wishes for me and my boyfriend. We have both fully recovered from the stomach flu a few days ago. It was bad, but I'm SO happy it is OVER! =D Praying I stay healthy for awhile now.

The last few days my boyfriend and I have been spending alot of time relaxing. He has taken me out to dinner twice and took me out to brunch yesterday! He is SO sweet! I love him SO much!

Today, my boyfriend is in his Marine uniform for, hopefully, the last time as he is at Selfridge getting papers signed and dropping to the Inactive Ready Reserve(IRR) after serving 6 years in the Marines. He never got sent off to war, but he has served his country well. Now, he can still get called up to go off to war for the next two years if they really need him, but I hope they don't. He does have alot of respect for those over seas and hopes they all come back safe (so do I).

Tomorrow, I have my yearly OB/GYN women check-up and my yearly blood draw to make sure everything is ok. I hope the blood draw goes well, I hate them. Prayers and well wishes are wonderful. Thank You! =D Love you guys!

I also have to make a GI appointment still and have to make a phone call to my health insurance company... fun stuff... yea right. I've been trying to relax as much as possible on this semester break and though it started off bad, it has been getting alot better. The sad part is I go back to school next Monday... time goes by too fast! Ugh! Well, I will keep on enjoying the time I do have! =D

Well, that's about it right now. I have a few Prayer Requests:

Logan will be having his third open heart surgery soon!

Jordan will be having her second open heart surgery soon!

Derrick will be having his second open heart surgery soon!

That's about it right now, Thank You for all the messages of support and prayers! They mean alot to me! Sending out LOTS of **Heart Hugs** to all!!

Below are some pictures I wanted to share. Enjoy!

With LOTS of Hope, Love, and Faith,

This is my Cardiologist. He has known me since I came into the ER at

Children's when I was 11wks. old. He is awesome!

  2. I'm so glad you are both feeling better. Good luck tomorrow, and thanks so much for the prayers for Derrick!!

    You and Chris are too cute! :)

    Big heart hugs and prayers,

  3. Happy to hear you are feeling better!! Having the flu just makes you feel like yuck...

    Tell Chris congrats and thank you for serving!! My hubby served in the National Guard with 15 months active and in Iraq in '03. Regardless of whether or not Chris went anywhere, he still served and that is just as important and respected :-)

    Thanks for the shout out for Jordan!!

    Make your 2010 even better than 2009! I hope it's happy and healthy!!

    Glad you're feeling better! Since you're feeling better are you going to go to Annelyse's party on Friday? I'm going to try to go. It would be nice to see you over break! Miss you!

  5. Glad you are both feeling better and saying lots of prayers for your upcoming appointments to go well.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. You and Chris make a very cute couple! Tell Chris thank you for serving our country. My father was shipped overseas during desert storm so I know the worries of being shipped out but at the same time having appreciation for those who serve.

    Stef, Ryan, Wyatt and Logan

  6. such an awesome update!!! so so glad that you're both feeling so much better. And the pictures? loved them! I hope your appointments go really well and nothing eventful comes out of them. Also, I'll definitely check out those links to help pray for these families. We're kind of lumped in there too since Natty's Fontan is in 5 days. Feeling nervous but then I see your blog and it just reminds me of how wonderful things are going to turn out for her. *hugs*
