Life Update 2
So, you know the saying, "When it rains, it pours"? Well that very much happened to me, hence the lack of posting since May 2nd.
Here's what went down...
As I mentioned in my post "Life Update," my dad was recently diagnosed with cancer. He had a procedure on May 4th to burn off a tumor and to place direct chemo into another. The surgery went well, but when he was in recovery he had noticed that he couldn't feel his right food. They determined that he has very bad calcification in his arteries. They went in to remove the blockage to try and get better blood flow to his foot. That surgery was successful. Everything seemed great 2 days later, he was up talking and eating, nothing was bothering him. Two days later, he was intubated because his lungs were filling up with fluid and he couldn't breathe. Next thing I know, he has had a heart attack and needs surgery again. In the process of him being intubated, he had a stroke. He was in the hospital for almost a month before they removed his tubes and sent him to rehab. He is doing much better now, even though he still has cancer and is no longer eligible for a transplant because of his health. I am just so happy that he is alive. That was the hardest period in my life that I have ever been through.
Shortly after my dad was released from the hospital, my boyfriend of 6 years proposed!!
I am so happy that I get to marry my best friend and that my dad will be there to walk me down the isle!
Also as I mentioned in my previous life update post, I took the summer off of school to take a break, well.... there hasn't been any sort of break since.
I am getting married this Saturday and have been swamped with wedding planning and life. Once all this wedding stuff is behind me, I should be able to start posting again regularly. I truly miss it, but sometimes more important things come up.
