A Valuable Find!

As ups and downs go, yesterday was a bit rough for me...bad headache and kids just being kids. Then, angels surrounded me yet again and without even a call, I had friends call "just to check in" and the kids were invited to playdates for the whole afternoon. Then more friends called and my Dad emailed me several all are my angels. It turned a hard day into a great day. Love to all.

The funniest part of the day was when I had a talk with Trenden right before bed. He asked me something about wearing things on my head and I explained that with the metal plate in my head and the pressure it creates, I cannot wear anything for very long (ie. sunglasses, headphones, hats, even my eye patches that strap around my head). Then he got a look on his face and said, "I'll be right back!" He came back in a few minutes with his metal detector! The following video and pics are the result!! :)

The metal detector (depending on the setting it was on) said my metal plate was either a 50 cent piece or a "pull tab" from a soda can! (In the video, Trenden is discovering it is a pull-tab.) It was quite funny for all of us and definitely a bright spot in our day! Enjoy the video and pics! Happy Weekend!

That's pretty funny! You should go to the beach where people try to find precious metals and confuse everyone:) It's so nice to see your blog. I'm glad you seem to be doing better. We love you and have thought about you often over the last several months.

That is pretty funny- I'm glad that you can laugh at your situation. I tell my kids on our way to some "functions" that if they get bored let me know and I'll throw-up on command. It's a neat trick to have at times. By the way, how cute do you look!? Seriously. Where I'm in agreement that this would make for a great Funniest Videos or YouTube classic, I'm not sure that you'd want that kind of exposure. But that's just me :) Take good care of yourself Jodi.

Hey Jodi,

It's Chris Eastman, your old neighbor from Warrenton. I hope you remember me. I've lost touch with most people in Warrenton over the years, but got on Facebook recently and randomly stumbled across your blog from a link Tamra posted. I spent about half my Thursday at work last week reading your entire blog - everything you've been through in the past several months, and I just wanted to let you know that reading it brought tears to my eyes and re-affirmed my faith in human strength. To read about how you've come so far through all you've been faced with is so incredible, and encouraging. It seems you have been surrounded by amazing people through all this. My sincerest wishes for continued improvement and strength. You will continue to be in my and my family's thoughts and prayers.
