Halloween this year was the bomb haha! I usually don't get all into Halloween but with a bald head I decided to milk it for all its worth:) my brother-in-law Matt is an artist.... ( his blog is on my page.. go check it out!)..... and so I asked him if he would draw a sleeve of tatoos on my HEAD :) It turned out so good that when I went out people actually thought they were real. I had to correct them that they were fake and no I did not shave my head for Halloween haha. My family is so awesome when Halloween comes around because the all dress up.. even my 2 day old niece Jane had her princes costume on:)

ST. GEORGE....:)

Sooo what happened was I was really sick for like 2 weeks and so they figured out that I needed more blood... Before I got the blood I could not even walk in the hospital without stopping every few steps to sit down. It was amazing to me how weak I got. So the possibility of going to St. George was looking very slim. I got the blood and I literally got up and walked out of the hospital without taking a break. It was so crazy! I also hadn't eaten hardly anything for the whole time I was sick.. and after I got a bit of a threat from my nutritionist (saying she was going to feed me out of a tube if I didn't start eating haha) I decided to give it a try. So long story short I ate a whole Jimmy Johns sandwich hahaha its amazing what a little blood can do!! So since I was feeling great, my mom, me, Michelle, Jackie, and baby Olivia loaded up and drove to St. George for Mallory's wedding, to see all my besties, and to get away ... far away from the hospital:)

Blood, Blood, and More Blood...

Here are a few pictures of me just loving life while having to get blood transfusions:) I have had 3 so far and more are expected. Me and my mama have to sit in these beautiful blue chairs for about 5 hours, so you can imagine why I get a little upset everytime I find out I have to get another one...I usually handle blood pretty well but there is something about a bag of blood going into you that makes me feel a bit woozy. They usually cover it for me so i don't have to look at it.. but looking at blood is alot better than smelling the nurses food when I'm already trying my hardest not to puke in the first place... oh the joys:)
