President Hinckley - 1910-2008

For the past 10 years of my life, President Gordon B. Hinckley has been a part of it. I remember in 1998, attending my first General Conference of the LDS Church. I heard him say, "I have a confession to make...I love you." It touched me, I truly felt his love for me and this quote has been with me my whole life. My wife and I have spent the evening swaping our favorite President Hinckley stories, it has been a night of great reflection. In our home, you will be missed and will always be loved.

Blogging...3 years and counting.

I got to thinking today about how long we have had this blog. So I went back to the first post and it was honestly, three years ago! I can remember my idea to blog now. I was driving home with Delena from her brother's wedding. We had a talk about getting married that day (see my first post). Right then I knew it was for real, we were going to get married and soon. I had already saved for the ring (see my second post), but I wanted a little more cash to seal the deal. I thought to myself what a great way to preserve these moments, I should keep a blog.

It turned into an amazing journal of info, people from all over the world, including Germany and England posted comments supporting our, soon to be, marriage. Our families and friends read in anticipation for the money I would propose (see this post). One group of people even toasted our proposal, in Germany, with a beer. (see this post and comments) We were also on Utahbrides.com (see this post) the TV show, because of our blog and so much more.

Thanks for a great three years, but really, it is all because of Delena. She is the reason this all began and the reason I am so happy in life. I will never forget the day we met and my life changed for ever (see this post). Thank You my dear, you are the best and I love you.

Knee Surgery

I have had a few people now ask about my knee surgery. So here are a couple random photos of me in the hospital. They thought I had a torn meniscus, but when the scoped the knee the found only fluid. However, I would have had the scope done anyways. These photos are of me in the operating room waiting for the scope. Delena took great care of me. I have recovered well.

Results are in!

8:33 AM Update:

The Doctor just came in and said I have Gal Stones and need my Gal Bladder removed. I will be going home now and tomorrow I will see a surgeon to have my Gal Bladder removed. Man! I just had me knee scoped last week.

My Poor Body

8:00 am update.

I got some sleep but every time my pulse dropped the stupid alarm would go off and I would wake up. Now after the ultrasound I have started to feel some pain again.

Well I am just waiting for the doctor to return.

Ultrasound Room

7:42 AM Update:

Just had the ultrasound done, No word yet. I should have gotten a DVD like when Joseph was born.

Radiology

7 am update:

A little kid next to me just went up for some x-rays that could be a good sign for me.

The lady next to me keeps complaining and has decided just leave, I am finw with that.

I am feeling much better now I hope it is not just the drugs though.

I am in the E.R. Ouch!

About 4 am I woke up with severe pain in my stomach and back. I couldn't get it to go away so I woke up Delena. Result--I am in the E.R. Now. We are waiting for an Ultra Sound so I sent Delena home and thought I would email the blog to record this amazing moment. I will probably post throught my ordeal.

They think it could be my gal bladder, they have ruled out Kidney stones. But the radiology people don't get in until 7 am so I have to wait.

The 2nd Annual New Years Eve Gala

For the past two years we have gotten together with the Fuller's for New Years Eve. This year we decided to move it up a notch. We rented tuxes and put on dresses and had a super elegant dinner. It was tons of fun! There was a great three course dinner, appetizers, sparkling cider, dancing, photos, games and of course a new years kiss from our loved ones. The Eddy's showed us all up on Guitar Hero and we had tons of fun. Enjoy our slide show.
