the week in replay

Somehow, more than a week of my life passed by already and I don’t remember much of it. I suppose that’s a good thing, when the last week has consisted of...


-the ER

-Morphine, steroids, and more pain killers

-seeing an ENT

-having “surgery” on my dang jaw

-lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, and repetitively trying to open and close my mouth

-Oh and watching the BYU game which in all honesty was just as painful as my jaw problem

Despite everything that has happened this week, the one word to sum up how I am currently feeling is grateful. Yes my jaw still hurts, and yes i'm not going to enjoy living on a “soft foods” diet for 6 weeks, BUT it could be a lot worse. I mean, at least I have a jaw, right?!

Sometimes when I’m walking on campus and I pass someone I don’t know, I wonder what kind of trial they are currently going through or have gone through. There are so many silent sufferers out there and recognizing that makes me aware that I’ve got a really good life; and this jaw problem of mine is really not that big of a deal.

I just want to send out a big thanks into the void to all those who have helped me the past couple weeks. I couldn’t have done it without you. seriously.

And now…a few pictures since I haven’t posted pictures in, well, weeks!

Having a class with my brother and sister is...the BEST.

I miss my cute little cousins like crazy and wish i could spend more time with them

Attempting to be crafty at Color Me Mine. It obviosuly didn't go so well, seeing as i quit after 2 stripes
