An Anniversary to Forget...

So, it was during this week last year that our life was turned upside down. The actual date isn't until the 25th, but it was the Monday of the last week of school that I was sitting at my desk after a long and tiring day that I received a phone call from the local PA at our clinic. When he told me that he thought my wife was having a possible heart attack, my world stopped turning.


It was within a few short hours that my wife was in the ambulance and on her way to Price. I was running around my house with two wonderful ladies from the ward feeding the baby and gathering up a few things she would need while we went to the hospital for what we expected to be a short stay, if we stayed at all.

The thing I remember the most is that my wife looked me in the eyes and said that she finally felt at peace and that she felt like someone was really listening to her.

From there, our life turned in this:

Days 1-3
Day 4
Day 5
Day 6
Day 7
Day 8
Day 9
Day 10
Day 11
Day 12
Day 13
Day 14
Day 15
Day 16
Day 17
Day 18
Day 19
Day 20
Day 21
Day 22
Day 23
Day 24
Day 25
Day 26
Day 27
Day 28 (No Post)
Day 29


I know, that is a long list of links... It was a long lot of days to live through...

But she did, we made it home safe, and I am grateful for the last year in which we have had to heal and grow as a family.

I am grateful for my wife. She is an amazing lady. Is she still recovering? Yes, and will be for possibly several more years, or for the rest of her life. But, we are trying to take each day as it comes, and enjoy it as best we can.

Later...

  1. I can't believe we are hitting the year anniversary. It seems like years ago some days, and just yesterday others. Some days I wish it would all just go away like it never happened. There are reminders everywhere. I'm tired of feeling pain. I'm tired of not being able to do all that I want to. Thanks for being patient with me and staying right by my side through it all. It hasn't been an easy road by any means, but I definantly think we have grown stronger. Love you! :)

  3. There were many of us, far away and only familiar through blogs, that lived this with you. I'm so glad that she is better and that you shared this journey with us.
