Quick Random Update

Thought I would drop in and just give a brief update on what's going on in my crazy life haha.

My 2nd Summer term of classes started last week. I have two classes instead of one like the first half of the summer. I'm in school most of the day Tuesday and Thursday (11:30-2:20 & 6:10-9) which can get me tired, but I mange pretty well and I'm proud of myself for it! I graduate in December and I can not wait! Woohoo! :)

I sat down and thought about what I want do as a career after college for a long time over a few day period it was in my head. I think I'm going to try my hand at being a Child Life Specialist. I know what it's like to be in and out of the hospital, so I think I would do well at this. This will mean that after college I need to do 100 volunteer hours, then a 680 hour Internship, & lastly pass a test... all this to be certified. I hope I can do it. I'm going to give it my best effort and either way the experience will mean a LOT!

Life continues to keep me busy with ups and downs, but I'm doing pretty well. Keeping my head up and looking at positives. I am blessed and grateful for so many things.

I have my Liver/Abdominal MRI this Friday. I can't eat or drink 4hrs before... so that means I need to get up at 7am (can't eat or drink after 8am) to eat and brush my teeth. I won't know the results that day, but I will post a quick update on how the MRI went. I also have not gotten my 24hr Holter results yet even thought it's been almost 4 weeks, but they told me it can take up to 8 weeks for the results... so I will post when I have them. The best part of this MRI is a Heart Mom I've known online for awhile works in the MRI department that I'm going to this time around, so we will finally meet! :) And Chris is taking me out to eat after the MRI. So I'm going to make the best out of it!

That's about it for now. What kinds stuff do you want me to post about? Let me know... I could always use a topic. I wish I wrote funny posts, but maybe I need help in that area. I need to think of funny stuff.

**Oh almost forgot** Adult CHDers who had the Fontan AND CHD Parents whose child has had the Fontan, please if you have 10mins click on the link below and do this survey. The University of Michigan, Mott's Children's Hospital is doing this Anonymous research survey on anyone of any age who has had the Fontan surgery. This survey could collect great information in how to better the treatment for who, like me, have had the Fontan surgery. Thanks! Link to the survey:

Thanks so much for all the prayers and support! Sending prayers & **Heart Hugs** to all!

With Lots of Hope, Love, and Faith,
