    I am very excited. Tomorrow is the day!

    As most of you know my dad has been and still is in ICU in San Antonio so we are getting the legal part done with a small ceremony at my dad's hospital.

    Everything is set. His nurse called and made all the arrangements for us, which was very nice of him. We have to chapel reserved for an hour and the director is providing cake and punch for us.

    I have decided to wear my dress for our Mexico ceremony since my parent will not get to see me in it personally. So this will be my “trial run” before then. Everything has come together nicely.

    My dad is doing fairly well. He is stable enough that he can be disconnected from his monitoring and can be wheel chaired down to the chapel. However, my Mom has epilepsy and had a seizure and had to have CPR last week in my dad’s room so it has put a lot of stress on the family. She has recovered from the seizure but can not drive for 6 months now. So, my aunt is staying with her for the next month and we are trying to get him transferred to the Little Rock VA here with us so we can take care of both of them. Everything is working out right now.

    So all in all I am kind of having two destination weddings. We leave out to night and the ceremony is set for 2 pm.

    Thank you all for you support!
