I love this girl!

I have known this girl since I was 13 years old.

She was my girls camp leader I remember that year very well we had a pre-camp at her parents ranch.
We had so much fun hiking cooking and telling ghost story's .
After ghost story telling we settled down in our tents that's when we heard foot prints we all started screaming.
Debby and our other leaders came into our tent to see what was going on . We told them we heard foot prints.
She reassured us that it was just her younger brother coming home from work..
We all started peeking out our tents to see him there were many sighs of how cute he was I just remember thinking boy he scared us what a jerk.
I became close to Debby  that  summer and sang at her mission fare well.
 When she came back from her mission I was so excited to see her again.
Debby always made me laugh.
She still dose.
I have stayed close to Debby for all these years 26 to be exact we have laughed together cried together and even fought together.
Through it all I have come to love her more and more.
I can honestly say she is one of my bestest friends.

Remember her cute younger brother I was talking about that made all girls sigh?
Well I married him and made my sweet leader and friend my sister in-law.

My many faces!

I do this quite often I want just one picture of myself to change my profile, show of an out fit, share, my new hair style ETC. I take 50 pictures an only use one shot.
I got my hair cut the other day and a friend asked me to share a picture on face book well of course I took 50 shots.
Today you all will get a treat instead of sharing one shot of my hair cut here is 1o of my favorite silly shots that did not make the one shot I shared on face book..

Its great to be 8!

I cant believe Ben is eight years old already .
It seams like time is slipping by way to quickly.
It seems like yesterday he was a tiny baby helpless in the NICU with so many tubes and machines hooked up to him.
Now he is so strong and healthy.

Today was his first scout activity and he was over the moon excited I think he also like the fact that I will be his leader.
For his birthday he got his scout shirt, belt and scout book he was so thrilled.
His sister Mylissa gave him this an angry bird he was thrilled about that too.

Mini Vacation hospitalized!

Ok so I said I was better boy was that short lived.
Friday was a pretty good day I rested and felt really good most of the day .
I had a little bouts of pain but quickly felt better after I took my pain meds.
I had a few blood clots and I kinda felt bad at 9pm then at 11pm I told my hubby I felt really good and went to sleep.
I woke up at 3 am to take more pain pills.
20 mins later I was filling really bad and started vomiting .
I tried to take a shower to help the pain. but I kept getting worse.
Dale said were going back to the ER.
I was in so much pain when I got there.
They had me give a urine sample and it was pure blood.
The Dr. decided that I needed to be ametted to the hospital to get the pain and vomiting under control and to see why I had so much blood in my urine.
They gave me some good pain meds and I was able to sleep.
I slowly got better that day and was fine during the night.
They let me go home this morning but I have to go to the Dr. to take my stint out hopefully when it is out all my troubles will be gone.

I am so glad to be home I really hope this time there is no going back to the ER

My three day adventure.

Tuesday July 3rd I was at the pool with my Kids and  friends talking when I had a sharp pain in my right side of my back.
I commented to my friend Shelly and said I really hope this is not a kidney stone.
I have been drinking water like a fish trying to avoid them this summer.
Last summer I had them pretty bad because I kept getting dehydrated.
Latter that night I made Dale take me to the ER. because the pain got worse and I felt the start of a uti and I wanted to nip them both in the bud so we could enjoy the 4th of July.

Crazy as it was I was dehydrated had high blood pressure and a UTI and kidney stones I was surprised with the dehydration and high blood pressure. I had drank over a gallon of water that day and I have never had high blood pressure.
I was given an IV drip to hydrate me and sent me home with medicine.
I had a pretty rough night with tummy issues but woke up fine.

I got dressed up for the 4th and had a really good day with my family and friends.
I went to bed that night feeling great.
I slept so good woke up at 6 am on the 5th said good bye to my hubby fell back asleep my alarm woke me up at 7:30 but I was starting to feel a little sick so I went back to sleep I started shaking really bad in my sleep.
I was dreaming that I was vomiting but some how realized it was not dreaming but really vomiting I woke up and cried out for help.
My boys came in held my head up and called my husband.
I just kept vomiting and lost my ability to control my balder.
Once I stopped vomiting I was able to talk to Dale he decided he should come home and take me back to the ER.
I kept telling him I was fine.
I am glad he did not listen to me.
He came home and took me to the ER, There was a ton of people that were there and I thought I would never get to the back to see a DR. I told Dale to just take me home I was shaking so bad and just wanted to lay down.
Thank goodness he did not listen to me.
5 mins latter they called me back to asses me.
I realized at that point they were just going to take me back to another waiting room I started crying and then I vomited over every thing including my self even tho I had a barf bag They finished taking my vital sings and took me right back to a room because I had a high fever and I was vomiting and they already new I had an infection and kidney stone.
They hooked me up to an IV took more blood and urine samples 
I then got really sick again I could not believe I still had anything left in my tummy.
The DR cam in and said you are one sick girl you have a very bad infection that the antibiotic they put me on was not working he was also concerned about the pain on my right side he was pretty sure it was a stone but thought it could be appendices so he decided I needed a cat scan he also wanted too rule out a blockage in my Kidney.
I agreed to the cat scan I had never had one before.
It was kinda a weird experiences.
They told me right then that I had two small stones but they could not tell if they were stuck in my kidney or if they were in my bladder.
So they made me get on my tummy for more shots I guess if  you are on your tummy the stone will flop into your bladder if its not stuck.

I was taken back to my room I waited 20 mins for the dr. to come back in.
Once he came back every thing happened fast.
He said I had two stones that were stuck in my Gurder tube that's the tube in the kidneys that let the urine flow to your bladder.
Because I had an infection they were not willing to let me pass the stones on my own because the infection was in my bladder and had no way to get out.
So the plan was emergency surgery.
I was a little shocked.
They called in the uro DR. Dale had two DR. in mind and was glad his second choice was on call. He also heard who the anistesa Dr was and was not happy so he called his surgery center next door and had one of their anistia DR come in.

Here I am  right before I went to surgery don't I look lovely!

The surgery was a half an hour and every thing went well.
This was my first surgery ever so I was a little scared.
I was glad I could not remember a thing and was even happier that I showered before I went to the ER.
I went home an hour after surgery.
I had a hard night with pain and took narcadics at home for the first time in my life I always refuse them but I really hate pain when I pee.

I feel much better today The best way I can describe how i feel is that I feel like I just had a baby.
So sore and sleepy.

I am so glad this is all over and cant wait to get back to my every day boring life .

Fun 4th of July!

We had the best 4th of July we woke up to a beautiful day and took the kids swimming at the pool.

We hung out with our friends and decide to meet up later that night to watch a movie in our friends back yard.
We had the best time at 9:30 we all turned on our flash lights in support of the fire fighters the whole city was asked to do this.
 Because of the fires there were no fire works but mother nature took care of that with an amazing lightning storm.

The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays celebrating the freedoms that we he have as Americans.

I am so proud to be an American and so blessed to come from a heritage of amazing men who have fought in war to keep us free.
I hope you all had a great holiday!
