Long Time No See !
Written Dec 8, 2011 10:33pmHey Everyone -- Emma here. I know it's been too long!
Here's a vlog update about how I'm doing.
Please watch and comment (:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEgCgQvHS34I've been having some trouble with the pacemaker. Apparently my lead wires connecting from the pacer to the stomach have cracked, causing pain. Now it's shut off as I await replacement surgery.
The video explains it all in detail. I hope to hear from you soon!

Hey Howdy Hi!
Just want to see how everyone is doing. Life's been pretty good for yours truely lately. I turned 17 last thursday. And last friday marked the five year aniversary of my gastric adventure. My tummy has been acting up a little bit here and there. But I'm not too worried about it. With my birthday cash I bought a bunch of cute shirts that are flowy and not tight. So I can feel like a balloon, but you wouldn't even be able to tell. Woo hoo!
Anyways; I don't know much else to update.
Things are going well though. Friends wise. School wise.
Love, Peace and Chicken Grease.

Things are starting to improve! I'm scheduled for behind the wheel to get my drivers license. I'm making friends and seeing people and getting out there. Even if sometimes it's a little difficult, I'm making change. I'm getting caught up in school. Things are really looking up.
I talked to a woman that works in the media department at Nationwide about my story and it's going to be used for a letter. I'll be meeting with her when I head down there this month to get some pictures taken and whatnot. It's pretty cool!
I haven't been over-eating too much. Sometimes I forget though, and get a little belly going on me. But I've been de-stressing so it hasn't been too horrible.
I believe I've linked the extreme pain to my "monthly visit from mother nature" -- it's different than cramps. But I'm guessing that it's that along with the pacer, and it hurts a ton! I'm still going to ask about it though, cuz it didn't hurt like that before. Lol.
Anyways; I'm excited for later this month. And I'm getting loads of emails from people with questions. Its hard to keep up. So if you're one of those people, don't worry. You'll hear back from me. haha (: Talk to you all soon!
Enjoy the sweet weather!
