Insanity!

So have you ever felt like your life is slowly spinning out of control? Well the last couple of days I have. Wednesday was probably the most traumatizing morning of my entire life. I don't really want to get into the nitty gritty details, but to sum up when Devin woke up he could not move his body at all. He could wiggle his fingers and that is it. If you know Devin you know that sitting still is not his thing so something is terribly wrong. After getting a priesthood blessing from my uncles since pops was already in Lehi my mom called the ambulance and they stuck him on a stretcher and whisked him away to primaries. So that is where currently my saintly mother and devdog are (and tibi, thanks so so much for being there!! you've been so great!). Then today after work I was on my way home to shower and then head up back to the hospital when I slowly realize that there is this horrible grinding noise coming from my front left tire. Yeah it really took me a whole minute to figure out that I had a flat on the freeway! So I turned on my hazards and went to the side of the freeway and called my dad. Luckily I knew he was at the salt lake store so he could come help. Meanwhile I figured it was a lovely day outside and I knew my dad wouldn't get there for a few minutes so I decided to sit on the cement barrier that I was parked next to. I started texting someone and then after a few minutes I looked up and a man is walking towards me. He told me that his name is Lance and that he has three daughters and wouldn't feel good about himself if he didn't stop to help me. I almost started crying because I thought that it was so nice of him to help me. I told him my dad was on his way, but he said he would at least get me started. He was really fast though because when my dad got there he was done. (I had never changed a tire before, but it doesn't look that hard so next time I think I'll just try to do it first.) So I thanked Lance a whole load and so did my pops and then Lance drove away. I just thought it was awesome of him to stop to help me, it's good to know that people are still nice! Then my dad gave me the look, the look that says "I've been telling you for a whole year to get your dang tires changed." and I smiled and then he smiled and gave me a hug and went on his way to the hospital. I took the back roads home with the spare. (Did I mention he opened a Scaddy's in Lehi? Well he did and it's awesome!) I went and got my tires changed and now I am here at home getting ready to go back to the hospital. So even though pops didn't change my tire I am so glad that I have a dad that will come help me whenever I need it, even if he is super busy! So ya. OH I think you may be wondering how devin is doing. Well I don't know. Yesterday he lifted his arms over his head so that was awesome! He still won't move his legs much though and still can't sit up. He got an MRI today and I guess we'll have to see if that shows anything. His seizures are really really bad right now, but they switched his medication and hopefully they will calm down soon. Well I better get going. I hope you don't blow a tire today.
