Owens cut on his head is just a tattoo
he just wanted to be like frankie

Well we have been waiting all year for October to come so we could take Owen to THRILLER!

It is a awesome Halloween based dance production by Odyssey Dance Company. There is a sweet mummy that does a dance with some beautiful Egyptian girls to the beginning song on my blog page. It is one of our traditions we love, it totally gets us into the Halloween spirit. I know your thinking how can that be possible?!!

This year it was down in Provo in addition to up in slc so we didn't have to use up more gas to get there. The only downer was that half way through the show right after the intermission there was a dance with witches and lots of pyrotechnics well it was too much for the smoke detectors and the alarm went off, we all had to file out and stand in the cold for about 30 minutes. Which wouldn't have really bothered me but it was an especially cold night and it was starting to snow! Poor Owen was freezing! We ended up in the car for a while and the fireman came and actually stayed for the rest of the show! As we were leaving one of the fireman reached out to feel O's head to see if his tattoo was real and asked him if his head hurt. Guess it does look pretty real and we have had a bonk on the head before that needed glue.

This weekend we also went to the Body Exhibit in SLC with our friends the Brimhalls. It was just as good as the one I saw in Vegas but way more crowded and so so so HOT!

The thing I am not excited about is that it's time for me to go see the Transplant docs up at U of U. Every time it comes around I get panicked about all that they could say and what they could find on the ultrasound and blood work. I try most of the time to have a good attitude and outlook on the situation but every six months I get to face the severity of what could go wrong and what has happened to my body in the six months since the last time. The doctor is super nice and totally down to earth able to ask him anything but just thinking about sitting in that little room waiting for him to tell me its still the same or gotten worse is making me sick right now. Good thing I got some xanax to take this time. Ive never taken it before and I only plan to take it at these appointments, although I don't have a high tolerance for meds so it would be really sad if it made me super sleepy or something.
