March Madness...and I don't mean basketball

The most relevant news of late is probably Tarah-relatedness. Earlier this week she gave us quite a scare from an especially bad episode that ended in a seizure because she didn't her pain meds on time (it was decided that the seizure was a result of her pain being too much for her and so she stopped breathing). We had to call an ambulance and she was stabilized before they got to our house, but they took her in anyway. They did some tests and sent her home, but this just proved that something needs to be done now, because its getting worse.

Her doctor (well, one of them) wanted to send her back to Denver now (she was there last year around Christmas for about 2 weeks and nothing really happened). And just today, we got a call from Dad telling us that they have her scheduled to fly over tomorrow morning! Meaning, no Easter with Mom and Tarah. Daniel, Jacob, and I all have to go back to school on Monday, which is a bummer because it would've been helpful if we could've been around while she's gone. There's no telling how long they'll keep her there, because last time it was about 2 weeks.

So, that's what's going on with Tarah. They're looking into some sort of pain disorder now. But anyway, the rest of life is pretty good. There's been a lot of church lately, with Holy Week. I'm home right now with Tarah because she can't go to church, everyone else is at Good Friday service.

Last night we (Jacob, Ethan, Joel, and I) got to go visit a newborn of our old boss, which was really great. And then we got to go to a friends' house and just hang out, which was really nice. I haven't touched homework this entire break, so I don't even know what I have to do. I'm going to be pretty sorry when I get back to school, I have a feeling. But I'm not worrying about that right now:). As Scarlett O'Hara would say, ""I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow."

*sigh* So, its been a little more eventful than I would've hoped for, but it is what it is. God knows what He's doing, even if we have no idea. But any prayers would be much appreciated. Thanks guys, I love you all! Oh, and I can't forget that March Madness is underway:). TTFN!

Awww, that's so sad! I hope she's okay and they can figure out what's wrong.

Happy Easter! He is risen!

He is risen, indeed... is Tarah risen with Him? I saw your short Facebook status post.
