Hard Working Man

I really am not that good about updating our blog. I will try harder though. Some of you may know, but Chase got a new job in July. He works for the Donor Network of Arizona (he removes hearts, kidneys, veins, bones, arteries, takes skin, etc.) Yes, I find his job absolutely disgusting. He has some very nasty stories to tell. However, Chase LOVES it. He looks at it as seeing that he is helping save lives. It is great experience for his future plans of medical school. What better way to learn, than looking and operating on the human body. Anyways, Chase works full time and goes to school full time. I don't know how he does it. I admire his hard work so much. Yesterday morning, he was paged to come into work at 6:30 am. They ahd a case in Havasu (4 hours away) and they were going to be taking a lot from the body. (when they are taking a lot, it means they will be operating for about 8 hours) I knew this meant I would not see him all day. So, he left at 6:30 am and did not return home until 1:00 am early the next morning. I miss him so much when this happens. Thankfully, it has only happened 3 times so far. Usually, they have cases here in Phoenix but on occasion, they have to travel. There work covers all of Arizona. Anyways, he got home around 1 this morning and woke up at 6 to get ready for school. I don't know how he does it. I love him SO much and really admire and appreciate all of his hard work!

I have some pictures to update with later. I promise I will post them soon.

An interesting fact: A single healthy body can donate up to 70 different things!
