We found out a few weeks ago that Andrew's mom has lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes). Things have been pretty crazy with school and then last week she developed pneumonia and went to the hospital. We went to go spend some time with her on Sat night and she is still in the hospital (trying to get pneumonia under control). She was supposed to get her next chemo treatment tomorrow, but can't now because her immune system is already so low. Chemo treatments are supposed to be on schedule to increase its effectiveness. So life has been pretty stressful lately. It is really hard on Andrew too, because he only has one parent living right now and now she isn't doing so well. Anyway, we are so very blessed in our lives and we are thankful for everything we do have. I am so thankful to have the gospel in my life and know that he knows what is best for all of us and is there to comfort us in times of trial. I love my Heavenly Father and Brother. I am not trying to complain about life, because it really is good, I just wanted to let everyone know what we have been up to lately.
Wow. It has been a while since I have updated my blog. Sorry guys. Well I am here in good ole Pocatello going to Dental Hygiene school. I am so busy studying all the time. I do love what I am doing, it is just the most intense thing I have ever done. They say anything that is worth it is hard though right? It is already getting cold in the mornings and nights. I definately miss Virginia's weather. Andrew is being very supportive of my school and gives me lots of back rubs. He also cooks for me. What a good husband huh? He is just trying to find a job right now but the economy is crappy here. Hopefully our prayers will be answered soon. We have a little house and it is so fun to have a place of our own. It is a little two bedroom house but bigger than anything we have ever had.
Andrew and I have been married since August 2007 and I can't believe how fast time has gone by. We have been richly rewarded with so many blessings. We are so thankful to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am finally done with school now and we are both working. I am now a dental hygienist. YAY! I love my husband with all my heart and am so glad to have a husband who is also my best friend!
