24: Shannon took me fishing on the river for the first time. I was "hooked"
25: We caught several however I kept wanting just one more. It became dark and we couldnt find our dock, so we ended up having to throw them all back because it was nearly 10pm and he had to work in the am so no time to clean them.
26: On July 20, 2009 Shannon was seriously injured by a crane while at work. He was in bad shape the guys at work stayed with him and kept him calm while attempting to stop the bleeding from his badly damaged right upper extremity. He was taken by ambulance to AMH where Arch was landing to take him to Barnes. It was the worst day of my life. I wasnt sure if he would make it; all they kept telling me was that it was bad. He spent about 14 hours in surgery, lost 11 units of blood, and didnt wake up until the next day for what began the fight of our lives. We had so much support from our family and friends and without it we would have never made it. Although our lives were forever changed that day we are still together here on this earth and I will never be able to give the thanks that is so deserving to so many people. You see we are in a competition with my grandparents to be married longer than they are and they are at 60 this year. So we need at least 45 more years together. We opted not to put any photos of this day in our books. As we need not to remember that but what we have today because of it.
