Well almost,up there in my top 3!We went to see Jimmy Eat World on friday at the new Mesa Arts center. It was an awesome show and that place is really nice.We love Jimmy and they just put on a really great show!Jim Adkins puts his whole heart into entertaining the crowd. And we were on the 8th row so I could feel his sweat every time he banged his head! It was great! Saturday we went out with Vance and Tina to celebrate for the Kidney anniversary. We went to Roys a fancy Hawaiin cuisine restaurant. It was tasty but pricey! Today marks the day 8 years ago I was sliced in half to give my kidney to my big brother. It was not a fun thing but totally worth it. We were talking about after and how I dont remember much but how they have pictures and Im so scared to see them. I totally felt like the bride on sixteen candles all morphined up,scratching my face and licking the air and stuff Im sure it was entertaining. Lindsay always said it was scary to see me like that. That first week was so hard,I was so soar and stiff. Vance did great immediately and then he started rejecting so that was freaking us all out. I seriously felt like dying if I did it for nothing.But he had a blessing and started to get better and better and now its been 8 years. Every year we go to a totally expensive restaurant to celebrate. He has had his up and downs but taking like 12 different pills a day will do that to you!No one ever knows for sure how long a transplanted kidney will last but we will take every year we can get. I have heard of some lasting 14 years. That would be great. Thanks to all those laps we ran in cheer to keep these kidneys healthy(haha)He will most likely get a kidney from one of his 4 kids now. And the surgery is alot easier now,less recovery. Since the surgery they thought they were done having kids but they had two little miracles come along Kinley and Harrison. We are lucky to have them close to us in queen Creek. They are our favorite video rental place because they have every movie you can think of. So I love you Vance lets make it another 8 years!!!!!
