John called the sleep center Tuesday to see if by chance they had had any cancellations so he could get in earlier to have his followup and therefore get his cpap machine. Well as luck (and an answer to many many prayers) would have it, they did and we were able to see the doctor Wednesday at 8:30 am. It turns out John has severe apnea. The doctor said he stops breathing 68 times per hour. She said she would fax the order for the cpap machine to the company that our insurance works with and that they would call us to set up an appointment to get the machine. Well an hour after we got home they called and John was able to get it that day. Needless to say both of us have been sleeping very well since. We are very greatful for the answered prayers. It will be nice to have a husband that doesn't go around looking like a zombie

Life Happens

So I was kindly reminded that I hadn't updated the blog lately. Part of it is because I didn't think the stuff that has been going on would be of interest to anyone. But my mom thought it would be so here goes.
I hadn't been to Utah to see my Grandma Clark since April 2010. I have felt strongly for several months that John and I needed to make a trip over so I could see her. Shes 88 years young and I know that the time for her on this earth is getting short. I have a special bond with her and cherish any time spent with her. I felt the same way with my dads parents. Being single as long as I was gave me a wonderful opportunity to be able to go and visit and build a bond with my grandparents that no one can break. Anyway after much convincing and reassuring I got John to take me over to see her. Some of you may wonder why I didn't make contact to see you. Well this trip was very quick and I wanted to spend time seeing family and one very close friend that I hadn't seen since our wedding. Maybe we can connect next trip or we ALWAYS welcome visitors. We had a great visit with my grandma and I also got to see my brother and then my sister and her family. It wasn't long enough for me but hopefully next time we can spend more time.
One of the reasons John was hesitant to drive over is he has been extremely tired lately. He sleeps and still wakes up exhausted. We have been to see a specialist and now know the cause. We are pretty sure he has Sleep Apnea. He has had the sleep study and now we have to wait for the follow up appt. John wishes he could see the doctor sooner rather than later but oh well. I guess we need a lesson in patience. I'm looking forward to no more snoring haha. My family knows all too well at how loud it is. And yes I think its worse than my dads.
As for me Im just trying to keep up on the house and yard. One big adventure was I won tickets to the Reno rodeo from a local TV station here. John was going to go with me but realized the day before that there was no way he could get off work. I made a small attempt to get someone to go with me but decided I needed to venture by myself to this event. Why you say? Well I have learned that with Johns work schedule there are times that if i want to do something I'm going to have to go alone. It would be different if I had single friends here without kids but I don't. I had a blast. Our rodeo is amazing and Im so glad I forced myself to go.
So there you have it..That's kind of what we have been up to. Have a great one
