Graduation Invitation!

Hey There Friends, Followers, Supporters, and People I've Never Met (yet)

I know that it's been awhile since we last talked, or more of me updating and you all responding like the awesome people you are. But it's all because i'm getting my life in order and haven't really been sick. I'm healthy enough to hold down a great job at Taco Bell, and I'm even getting promoted to a management position soon! So it's all pretty exciting.

I suppose you could say that life has been pretty awesome since I graduated and had my last surgery. I haven't felt the pacemaker move one bit. But it must be working. Because with all the tacos and burritos I seem to consume at work, I am never ever bloated anymore.

Speaking of graduating though, the other day I finally picked up my diploma from my high school and now I feel all official and adult-like. I'm even considering just carrying it around to show people how cool I am and that I'm no longer in high school. But that might be a little too much. I do, however, get to walk with the alternative high school class on the 31st. Then I'll feel even more official.

This happened just in time for my graduation party!!
That's the main reason why I'm writing this journal update. What better way to celebrate my graduation that with all the people who helped me get through what had to be the hardest 4 years of my life? Seriously though. Without the support of everybody I wouldn't have been able to make it out of there when I did.

I really hope that all of you can make it. Attached to this entry is a picture of my actual invite -- and since I don't have everyone's home address I couldn't send it out. But there is all the information there and the address of where it's being held.

So if you wanna come -- seriously open to anyone -- and see the new happy, healthy Emma in person, you should definitely save the date and come out! 

Leave a comment in the guestbook if you think you can make it!

You're all wonderful. And I hope to see you soon!

Love, Emma :)

Hi Emma, If you have any current updates, please let us know. My daughter has GP and is suffering. She's been referred to Nationwide. I'd like to know how you are faring now with the gastric pacemaker all of these years later...
