The Stoddard's

Well WE DID IT! We made it to that never-seeming-to-come-AUGUST 14th! It has been a crazy couple of weeks. Just a quick re-cap unless you didn't know what happened to me ONE week before the wedding...

So, I was feeling out of sorts about ten days before the wedding. I would walk across the room or up some stairs and be completely out of breath. Not that I'm in the best shape ever but I was so weirded out because I know I'm not THAT obese. I shouldnt be walking around the apartment not being able to breathe. So I went to the doctor. He decided that I probably jolted my rib cage cartiledge or something like that. The only thing I would think of that could have broken my ribs would be Wii Sports. Doubted it. He had me take some blood tests just in case. The next day he called me in to get an ultrasound on my legs because my blood work came back "high" whatever that means. The ultrasound doc told me that they were looking for clots in my legs. This immediately made me freak because the only thing I knew about blood clots was that if you had them you had to get surgery immediately (this info came from Jon...he had just had a class lecture about clots...) anyway, they didnt find anything in my legs. So the next day the doctor wanted me to get a CT scan on my chest. Low and behold, there were about ten blood clots in each of my lungs! I pretty much wigged out and jon did too. We started crying in the waiting room and the thought that I was going to die flashed through my mind. I was immediately admitted to the hospital. After the doctor came by and explained the process of de-clotting my blog (no surgery needed) we all calmed down and felt much better. I spent two days in the hospital decotting my lungs...accompanied by my sweet Jon the entire time. I was released with shots (that Jon had to give me) and meds that I have to take for the next six months of my life. But all in all, it was just a little hitch in the plan. Seven days later, Jon and I went to the Salt Lake Temple and GOT MARRIED! The wedding day was perfect. We were surrounded by our families and friends and it was a celebration to remember. I was told tonight that our wedding was the best they've ever been to! HOLLA!!!!

Jon took me to Park City for a couple nights before I had to be back for student teaching. He got one of the best hotel rooms there! It was so nice and HUGE! It was a perfect way to spend our first nights as a married couple.

As I was preparing to write this entry I came across this funny marriage quote:
 "I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life." ~Rita Rudner

I am probably pretty annoying to Jon as I leave my clothes on the floor sometimes (all the time) and my make-up sometimes makes it all over the bathroom counter.

Jon on the other hand is a dream. I came home from a LONG day of planning and parent teacher conferences tonight to a full on steak dinner. He's a great husband, which is weird for me to say still. But he really is the perfect one for me. He is kind and thoughtful and very smart.

Also, married people activities are really fun....;)

Well, thats all for now. Signing off for the first time as:

Mrs. Stoddard!

Peace and blessings!
