Emotional and mentally hard day

I went to the hospital with Debbie and visited with Donna. This is my first time I've met her. It sucks that I met her after the accident, but she was happy to have visitors.

We decided to go to the cafeteria to get something to eat while Donna tried to nap before the doctor was scheduled to come in. We were down there for about 15 minutes, when Donna called and said she wanted us to come back up there because a doctor came in.

We get back up to her room and there is a wound specialist there hovering over Donna. He saw us come in and turned around to introduce himself to us. When he moved, is when I almost broke down.

The wound specialist was cleaning Donna's wound on her stomach. I assumed there was going to be some stitches from the emergency c-section they did, but I was wrong. There, I saw this very large hole in her stomach full of tissue and blood, where the baby used to be. They were unable to stitch the wound because of problems. They have to come in and clean it a few times a day to keep it from getting infected. I was so shocked seeing her like that.

I know the guy that caused the accident, and every time I think about it, I just want to go to his house and hurt him like he hurt Donna. I couldn't imagine being in a car accident like that and losing my baby. I felt horrible sitting with her while she's going through the loss of her baby and be sitting there being healthy and still pregnant.

When we left, I was really quiet and Debbie tried to make me feel better about it. I haven't been able to get the picture out of my head.

Kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness month a few days early!

I know it's a few days early, but I'm kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness month a few days early.October is such an important month in my life because my mother was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer when she was only 38. With some treatment, she was able to get rid of it and has been cancer free now for 8 years!I know some women dread going to the gynecologist, let alone getting their boobs smashed with really cold metal, but read some of these facts:

♦ An estimated 182,800 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in 2008.
♦ Approximately 42,200 deaths will occur in women from breast cancer in 2008.
♦ One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.
♦ Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.
Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.

And these numbers keep raising.

To start off, I'm linking a few good sites to read. Please talk to your family and know your risk. Do a self breast check every month. It's very simple to do and can be done in a minute while taking a shower, or even while laying around watching TV. Doing a simple self-exam is how my mother caught hers.

Please read and watch the video and share with your girlfriends.

Early protection can save your life!

P.S. I'll be updating blog all month long with tips and facts. Oh, and sport the pink so show you're a supporter!

Well it's official....the paternity results have come in

Well, it's official....I'm an aunt! Joe paid for a paternity test and it came back that he is 99.99% the dad. I'm so happy for him. I called my mom and told her she's a gramma to 2 kids in the same year LoL. She feels really old now. I wish Joe and Stephanie the best with Benjamin and I really hope those 2 grow up some and are there for that baby.

Fall is here!

Fall is here! Granted it means winter is almost near, but I absolutely love the colors and the smell in the air.

I was talking to some family back in Ohio, and they said the leaves haven't changed yet. I have one word for you all...."Nanananabooboo!"

LoL.Fall time also means another thing to Alaskans. No more 22 hour sunlight. As much as I'm going to miss summer, I'm going to miss the sunlight. But it also means I can take more pictures of sunsets which I love! Aaron and I were driving to Walmart the other day and the sun was setting. The clouds were in such the right spot that I got an awesome shot. I was hoping for a better shot, but the traffic wasn't moving!!! Grr.



Snow has also started on the mountains. I am dreading that part!!! But it's still beautiful.

Donna is Aaron's cousin. She was 8 months pregnant and lost her baby because of this accident. All because of Kyle's irresponsibility. I know Kyle as well. He's one of my brother's friends. I hope there are some repercussions to his actions, and I hope everything goes alright...


Here is a pic of Donna's car

My winnings at Bingo

So Aaron and I went and played bingo tonight. Usually we don't win, but we decided to go and hang out with Melissa and her sister Makenzie. We were playing the 3rd game and it was a diagonal with 2 corners. I was 1 away from winning. I looked up and there it was....G47. I was so excited and patiently waited until he called the number. As soon as he did, I yelled bingo.
It was the best feeling in the world.....until 13 other people called bingo too. I was pissed!! Here, I thought I was going to win $1,000. Instead, I had to split it between 13 people. I got $71.25. I guess it's better than nothing *Shrugs*

New phone!

Aaron got me a new phone today!! It's a Blackberry Pearl 8130. I freaking love this new phone!! I just have to get used to it...

Stephanie's mad at me coz I posted pics of Joe holding Benjamin. Lmao, oh well. He just paid 500 bucks for a paternity test. I hope he gets it done soon so we know for good whether or not he's the father. I think it's eating up the both of them.

I have yet ANOTHER doctor's appointment on Thursday. I'm getting tired of this crap. Seeing a doctor every couple of weeks is irritating me.

Anywho, I'm gonna go tinker with my phone some more before going to bed.
Ciao.

I saw my baby nephew today!! P.S. Don't shop at Cooper Tires in Wasilla, AK

So Aaron and I made plans to go to the valley for tires today. I made an appointment at Cooper Tires to change the tires on the truck and they sold 2 of my tires!! I had to go spend more money elsewhere, because they fucked up. I was pissed!! 

On a better note, we went to Sutton to see Stephanie and the baby. The baby is adorable!! I think it looks like Joe, but she doesn't. Everyone thinks the baby looks like Joe. I took the best picture.

I also visited my sisters coz Monday is their birthday, but Aaron works and goes to school that day. They're doing good. Although, Bud is living with Genny and that guy pisses me the fuck off!! I wasn't there for 5 minutes before he started his bitching. We went to dinner and then did the cake thing. I didn't have any though because of my pre-diabetes =[
It was good seeing them again.

I'm an aunt!

Stephanie had her baby today at 2:07pm. She named him Benjamin Scott Boyle. I wanted to be there for the birth, but I couldn't get into town in time. I plan on seeing the baby soon. Joe is freaking out because there's a chance he's not the dad. Everyone says the baby looks like him. Stephanie doesn't want the baby to be Joe's though. We'll see how everything turns out...
