My World is Spinning

Yesterday I had some pretty bad dizzy spells, some of them getting so bad it literally felt like the world was spinning. The dizziness began causing nausea, and after an international fare lunch with the College of Humanities following a conference, I had an international fare stomach ache. I left work early and came home for a three hour nap.

Looking back, I've been dealing with dizziness for a few days. Recently at work I've been getting small headaches and short dizzy spells. I'm not prone to headaches, but these I could shake off by closing my eyes and relaxing for a few seconds. Yesterday it got a lot worse.

This morning I have still been dizzy, although it hasn't been bad enough to cause nausea yet (thank goodness!). Nevertheless, I made an appointment and visited the doctor. Turns out that there is some weird stuff going on in my inner ears. She wasn't sure if it was labyrinthitis, leftovers from a viral infection, or a combination of the two. Either way, I got some meds and strict orders to stay hydrated and well fed.

Every story has a bright side. I'm feeling a little bit of what Stephanie has been feeling for almost 3 months now. This has helped me appreciate her efforts and her attitude despite how sick she has felt.

We're looking forward to camping this weekend, and hopefully we will both be somewhat recovered by then!

Summer 2008 Unveiled

We are finally settled in again here in Provo. Our recent neglect of the blog is due to several things, but needless to say we are happy to be home again. That being said, we had a wonderful summer and wanted to fill everyone in on some of our highlights.

This video contains pictures from many of our summer activities. We arrived in Athens, Georgia near the end of May. Most of our time there was spent studying, but we had the opportunity to go on a few trips. Then, at the completion of the internship, we began a road trip home that took us through South and North Carlolina, Cincinatti, Kansas City, and Colorado Springs. We saw some sites and visited family and friends along the way, and it was a blast.

With school and Stephanie's second trimester approaching, we are nevertheless "funned out" and happy to be back in our own home.

We love you all and hope you are doing well!
