Home again!

So we went out to Memphis again Wednesday, and things are looking up! Like my blood levels are really improving! Even the GGT count that had to do with my liver that was way off, is now almost back to normal! Anyways we had to stay in the Ronald McDonald house which was kind of a bummer, but it's okay because it means I was able to see savannah again! So that was a really good thing.
But we ended up doing 3 pokes in 2 days. It's a long story, but I now have a few more bruises and whatnot, anyways it was way fun to get to go and do that 50th anniversary interview with Jordyn for st Jude! It was 40 minutes long, and definitely a new experience!  We weren't too smooth at asking and answering each others questions though!
Also these pictures backtrack quite a bit, but oh well.
 Maddie, Me and Jordyn my first day back
Diane, Jordyn, Me and Heather my first Sunday back, I look super happy!;)

So yesterday we were able to come back home again and I was so happy because it was such a small trip and there will never be another 7 weeker! (Hopefully) Anyways, I really love the season changing, and the snow, and the leaves. Basically I just love the fact that I'm no longer in Memphis, not that it's a terrible place, it's just not one I prefer. They always have people donating and volunteering to do things for the families of St. Judes, I even got a 500$ piece of luggage, and new cell phone! It's actually kind of incredible how many volunteers that place gets. It makes me grateful that I was selected to be treated there! The trip wasn't too bad at all, besides the plane ride home had lots of turbulence, which Jordyn absolutely loves (who knows why?) but all in all, it was fine! Diane feels like we're living a double life, which i agree with! But I'd rather the double life than the single one we were living in Memphis there for a while! Anyways, I need to go find a Halloween costume for the ward party tonight! So long!
