Utah Homecoming 2010

At Rice Eccles Stadium September 2010
Dave and I went to the University of Utah's homecoming game the other weekend. We had so much fun. I was only able to stay for the first half because I still get a worn out pretty quick, but it was a blast. We got all dressed up in our gear, painted our faces, and went and cheered on the Utes while they dominated San Jose. The best part was just being there with Dave.Going to a Utah football game is something I have wanted to do with Dave since we got married, but never had the chance because I was so ill. It just made me so grateful that I was even able to go for a little while. I love the time I spend with him. This past summer has been amazing and I feel like I have a little bit of my life back.
I know some of you have been wondering how I have been since the last month I had to go back to the doctor. I am doing okay. They did an endoscopy and found that my stomach had started to close off a little bit because of a pretty big ulcer that is at the opening of my stomach. Dr. Mckinlay went in and stretched it out, which has helped with eating. I was getting pretty thin for awhile because I was throwing up most of what I was eating, but it has been better the last 2 weeks. I still have quite a bit of pain from the ulcer, and the nausea has come back a little bit, but overall I am doing great. You just have to take 1 day at a time. I can't predict the future and I don't know what is going to happen tomorrow, but I am grateful for today. I'm grateful that I got to have a few more hours spent on this earth with my sweetheart.

I'm trying to make the most out of the life I have because I know how quickly life can be taken away from you. I live each day like it could be my last day on earth. I'm just truly grateful for all my experiences, my trials, and for all of you who have helped me so much. I have so many people to thank and such amazing examples of how many good people there are in this world. I will keep enjoying each day thanks to all of you. Even if I go through more health problems, I'm thankful that I got to have moments like the Utah game.
