Another update

I don't have any pictures for this one.. Just an update. Todd is doing good. He has hearing back in his ears. its not all back put its better than it was. They dont know if it was time or if it was the steroids that made it better. I really don't care why it came back, i am happy that it is. I read over my last posts and cried to myself. I look at my posts and think gosh I dont really have anything that matters to people.. I decided that it does not matter what I post for other people its what i post for me to read. I can read them and feel what I felt when I wrote them.

I am going to try to do better for my self. So that I can remember the things that I want to. So on with the show already.

Its the last weekend before Morgan goes back to school as and 8th grader. Boy how does time fly. Connor is going into a new school this year. He is way excited to be a 5th grader...and little miss princess T. Well preschool is next week. I am sure that I will have lots of stories for that kid. We had to tell her teacher that she talks like a sailor and she will let you know that she thinks shes tha boss.. For me well I am going back to school.. kind of. I started a online Medical Transcript editor class. I am wanting to be done with with early next year so that I can do it part time and then go full time. I am not happy at my job. I love the people that I work with but I am not happy with them at the same time. I see way to much saddness and not a lot of happy, when I am on my unit. who knew that 5years of doing the same thing and you could still cry going home at least 2 times a week and I don't even get to watch the worst of it.

ok happy again not mad mindy I need to keep telling myself that and what a better way then to talk about the kids.

Morgan wants to start up dance again and so does trinity. That all starts this tuesday.

Connor started football up again.. that kid can really tackle some kids... I LOVE IT.

Well that is all for now. I will have get you some pictures of the first days of school, dance and some football pictures.
O and Todd sold his jeep.. WHAT THE I know.. he loves the thing but hates to work on it. O well I hope he doesn't look back and kick his self.

Doing better

Time for an update for those few people that read this. We had our MRI follow up appointment today. Everything is fine! They have no reason for the hearing loss. They did another hearing test and he is slowly getting his hearing back. He is still on the medication. I really don't know what else to write about. I guess now that I don't have the stress I can't find any words. Thank you for all our friends and family for the prayers. This will be a long road with lots of turn offs but with each other everything will be fine.

We arrived at the Hospital at 0730 on 5/6/2011. We went to the extra large building and found where we need to go to get the MRI started. We signed in with the clerk who gave us one of those pager things like when you go to "The Olive Garden" when that very noisey thing went off we paid the lady our portion of the MRI fee. Can I say if they pay 80% I would hate to see that bill.. They then gave us some paper to fill out. Todd only got his name filled out and they called him back as they asked me to stay behind and wait, my eyes started to get all watery as he walked away. I tried to watch fox news but, that did not last very long. I can only watch so much crap about the bad things that happen in the world. I tried to read the book.. I have a hard time reading any way but, when anyone would walk down the hall I would look up wanting to see his face. about 45 min of reading looking for him. A door opened and a guy called from "Mindy Smith" My heart dropped, I waited for a few seconds for hime to say it again.. Maybe I heard him wrong.. o god please say I heard you wrong... I knew he should have gotten a pill to help him relax. I new I should have just gone back.. I heard it again "Mindy Smith" I turned to him and said.. I am Mindy but my husband is the one with the appointment. He then smiled and said the Mindy I have is 87. O good. Why do I freak out like that? Why do I always think the worse of things. Ok now my heart is back to normal. I guess I can read for a little longer... NOPE... No more reading for me.

That is when I started to write all this stuff down in the smallest note book in the world.

This is the longest wait of my life. I keep hearing the other peoples pager things going off and seeing about 8 people going in and out. I know that this would be long thing but, I don't know I would not be able to handle this. I keep thining should I go ask the lady that registered us and see if she knows how long it should take. Should I go walk around, why don't they have fish for me to look at. What place doesn't have fish for me to look at.

I finally see him he is walking toward me. He is not stopping I think he is more down with this place than I am. I picked up my bag and we left. They told him that the Dr. Office will have the readings on monday. This is going to be along weekend.

So to start out... If Todd knew I was posting this for the world to see he might be mad...
For those of you that don't know Todd.. He became a father overnight... He married me and my two kids.. we had our baby 4 years ago.. He is a hard working guy, that will do anything for anyone. He may not understand the fact that girls cry and why if you look at them the wrong way they think that something is wrong. But that is something that he will have to get over; because he lives with 3 girls. Him and Connor will always be out numbered.
He is my always makes me feel safe and I know that he will always be there for me.
But now he needs me, family and friends more than he ever will know..
Last Thursday morning he woke up with a funny sound in his left ear, like a tin can was over it. By Friday he could not take it anymore and made a Dr appointment. She told him that it was from the long winter and that because of that we are having to run our heater more than normal and that his nasal passages are plugged. she gave him some spray and saline spray to help with that.
We then left for a family vacation to Moab. When he woke up Saturday he had no hearing in his ear. Thinking it was the same thing he went to the Dr. for he really didn't think anything of it. Monday morning he called me at work and asked if I could make him an appointment with an ENT (you know the ear guy) He was able to get in that same day. When I called him after work to see how it went all he could say was bad. He could not talk because he was at the pharmacy. When I got home he let me know that he was diagnosed with "Sudden sensorineral hearing loss" and that he is 100% deaf in his left ear. The dr said they can't explain why or how it happens but that they will give him a steroid to see if that will help. Non the less we are with out answers. We started to google things. We found out that it happens overnight. One day you can hear and 12hrs you can't. they are not sure if the other one will go too. The articles we read said that 12% of people will have hearing loss forever and some people can get there hearing back in 6 months. He is scheduled for an MRI this Friday to see if anything else is going on and we should have an update on the 16th. I have big mixed emotions, on this one. I don't want anything to be wrong but I do want an answer of some kind. I am sorry to leave the ones that are reading this and wondering what is going to happen, but I don't know and we wont for a few weeks.
I see parents and children at work struggle with life changing things all the time. But I never thought that I would have to deal with this in my own life. He is suck a Strong person and to see him suffer and not be able to fix it kills me. Please be strong for him and our family and keep us in your prayers.

Jordan vs Brighton

This is the face of a winner... Thats right they Won... It was a great game... 20-0. Connor got one pick and some good tackles in. His buddy Oscar got a few touch downs. At end of the game, the black ran to his chin... Boy does he sweet...

So this was the best game ever... Connor got a pick. His buddy Oscar ran in for a touch down.(2x)

At the end of the game one mom bought the boys treats from the snack shack and the coach got them Pizza on Mondays practice.. The boys loved the win.. Connor still had the smile Sunday night.... I love this..

Jordan vs Bingham

This was our first home game... The boys did a great job..
They did not win but they left with lots of good memories...
I did not get a lot of picutes of this one.. I started a bet with Connor.
Every time he gets a good tackle in its one less load of dishes that he has to do.,,

5 good ones= 5 days of no dish duty..

We had one bad play.. Oscar (Connors buddy) got tackled by the other team so hard he left early to with a head injury... The poor thing could not even walk, one dad had to carry him to the car... But he is great now.. It was just a little scary.

Morgan watching the game.. She always has the other Jersey on.
She likes to watch her brother play..
She has mentioned a few times that she would like to play next year...
We will have to see how that ones goes....
