Bye Bye Bunion

Well I'm happy to say that I had my right bunion removed last Monday and I'm very happy that the first week is over with. Those of you who didn't know, I had the surgery done through Syriex. It's a research study. They paid for everything, the only gist is, I had to stay at there hospital from Monday-Friday with no visitors. It seems weird, but the reason why is because it's a controlled study. The surgery went really well. When I first woke up I felt completely fine. I didn't feel nauseated from the anesthesia and was able to eat and relax. That night though was really hard. My foot throbbed the entire night and I couldn't sleep. It also didn't help that I couldn't see Steve.
The week went by fast and I became addicted to the Twilight series! I can't get enough of the books. I can't do a whole lot right now with my foot, so I just read and read...

The last couple weeks....

Steve and I made it home from Washington a couple weeks ago! We have loved being home and catching up with family and friends. Right when we came home we headed out to Lake Powell for a week and spent time with the Ford family on the houseboat. We had so much fun! Steve caught a lot of fish, and I learned how to get up on a slolam ski! :) I still need a lot of practice, but I got up on my first try!
The following week we went to my family's house and had a family get together. It was fun to see all my family again and to catch with everyone. We also went to Grandpa and Grandma Ford's annual Labor day sleepover. It was a lot of fun playing games with all the cousins and we usually sleep outside, but because of all the rain we had to sleep inside this year.
We also were able to go to my foot doctor's appointment (for my bunions) and I actually am going into surgery tomorrow to have them removed! YAY!!! What a blessing!
Steve has started school, and he's liking his classes (so far). He's enjoying it, but knows it's going to be a lot of hard work.
This weekend, Steve and I had a great time on Friday night going to Whit's volleyball games and cheering her on! Yesterday, we were able to spend time with Jason and Shannon. We went and did wedding preparations and then went to the state fair!
So, that's a little sum up of our life the last couple weeks!
