Dear Aunt Pat...

Dear Aunt Pat, Today was my 25th Birthday and the most important thing I had to do was visit Uncle Jimmy. Its not the same without you. I still cant believe your gone. You know just a few weeks ago you were at your door and you were waving to me. Every-time I go to nannies I always see you at the door with your makeup on. I always thought you ready to leave to go out someplace. I still picture you there... I always will. I know that Uncle Jimmy will be okay with all of us surrounded by him. Today he was alone and I sat with him for a good half hour and the first thing that he did was smile and he gave me the biggest hug ever. Then he said to me " I am lost without her". It broke my heart. I FEEL like I never got to say thank you for always being there for me. It's not going to be the same christmas eve I truthfully dont want that day to come. You know I was thinking of last christmas eve last were sitting on the couch and you and Uncle Jimmy gave me a christmas gift like you do every year and for some reason when you handed me the bag I was confused. I think I was so overwhelmed by the noise for the first time. I thought that christmas gift was for snuggles because It a dog on the bag lol. I remember all I saw you say was " dog cute". It was so loud because there so many people here and it was my first time with my hearing aids on for the holiday. I walked away and an hour later you ask me if I opened the gift and if I liked it and I said I THOUGHT IT WAS FOR SNUGGLES! You laughed lol. I was so embarrassed. For some reason I keep thinking of this day. You and Uncle Jimmy always donated for the past 3 years for the Walk4Hearing.I remember asking you and you said Of course I'll donate, its for a good cause" and I never got to thank you one more time... I know your okay because your with Great Grandma and Great Grandpa and the list goes on. I know great grandma's happy your with her.
I love you & Miss you... and I promise we will take good care of uncle jimmy.

Extreme Makeover Show & other things

Last night when I got home I just needed to relax after a long horrible day.. I still cannot believe my aunt is gone so suddenly and out of the blue. Seriously live each day like its your last because anything in seconds can happen and yes that is my biggest fear lately. Anyways I watched the Extreme Makeover show about the Oregon School for the Deaf. I really enjoyed watching this show and I was so happy they put something like this on TV. I was AMAZED when a few of the people got emotional on there about " hearing loss". I was so happy that Starkey gave all these children new hearing aids. It just made my night and put a big smile on my face and I even applaud LOL! I am also happy the people that are on the show learned a few signs before they went to OREGON's school. Things like this make my day and the awesome Strobe lights to let you know someone's coming in your dorm is awesome. So a big thanks to ABC for putting this on TV.

If I ever win the lottery my dream is to donate most of the money to Starkey Hearing Foundation. I struggled my entire life as many of you know and I dont want these amazing children regardless of whatever age to STRUGGLE. I want them to Succeed in life and be happy and proud of who they are! It took me a very long time for me to get there I finally go there though. Now I realize look at all that support and the deaf community and all the technology we have today its totally different. It just amazes me.

Anyways, Tomomrow is another big day yes at 3pm though haha lol so i get to sleep most of my day because I am just beet from this funeral. Tommorow I find out the results from my hospital stay NO it has NOTHING** to do with HEARING LOSS or Cochlear Implant. Its about my brain because I havent been well for 3 years now. So I am hoping they found something. Keep those fingers crossed.

2nd- I am excited and nervous on Nov 16 a few days before my 25th bday I am going into the city to have CI DEMO. Basically this is where I meet with the audiologist who tested my R ear out and the surgeon. So nervous! I have so many questions in the notebook. I feel weird asking all these questions and I know its common but I dont want to be annoying lol. I will let you know about this day....

Here is the direct link to the ABC show Extreme Makeover. Thanks Frieda! To put captions on all you have to do is click CC. Its such a great show please watch it for those that didnt.
