Yes, the rumor is true. I am headed to Utah in a week. I leave the eighth and Chris is staying here. I'm torn about this situation. I am more excited than I have ever been to see my family. But then I'm leaving my new family here.

Another sweet part about this trip is I will fly in on my sister's birthday!! So happy Birthday to Susan!! 

The reason I'm leaving you may ask? I've had a really messed up shoulder for a long time. I've been through it all to try and help it; several months of physical therapy, cortisone shots, and even a surgery. None of this has helped. 

So when Chris and I went home for Christmas, my mom took me to the doc. Sure enough I was right, I need another surgery. He didn't even know what's going on. 

I am more scared for this surgery than the first one. I know the pain. Waking up after is horrible. Not being able to do ANYTHING is horrible. Ever since my mom scheduled the surgery  I have been in a foul mood. I've had scary dreams about it going wrong. I dwell on things like this. 

I know I will be fine. But is it wrong to ask others to pray with you, for you? I know that's all I have been doing. I feel like I need more than just me. Comforting comments are gladly welcomed!  


  1. It will all work out; you'll be safe and okay.
    I love you Sar.
    I will pray for you. :)

  2. Hey Sarah! Of course we will pray for you even more that we already do (which is daily!) We will also put your name in the Newport Beach Temple when the time comes. Love you lots and lots! Mom and Dad Hendrickson

  3. How about I get a picture of Chris, blow it up to life size, and hold it in front of you when you wake up? Or how about I take step by step pictures of your recovery and blog about them?
    Just kidding sweety. Everything will be be just fine and we'll get this thing figured out once and for all. Besides that, I happen to know they give out some pretty cool drugs after surgery! Hahaha! Besides that, we have one whole week together before surgery.
    I love you.

  4. syrup :)
    everything is going to go great! if you need anything, call me!!!
    or if you just want... gummy frogs, pink lemonade or dill pickle sunflower seeds ;) i'll get em for ya!
    love you tons!
    kay kay :)

  5. Tell Chris to get a Ticket for Kauaii in May and come play with Duane Hunter and I and give us surf lessons while your gone.

  6. You can do it!!! Focus not on the misery but on having a shoulder that will finally work! I can't wait to see you. We will pray for you and we can put your name in the temple too:)

    I wann go to Kauai:)

  7. Hey Girl!
    I'll be there for you the WHOLE time! You SHOULD be worried about that!;) Only four more days!!! Yeah-Yeah! I'm so excited to show off my stoner sister after your surgery! haha love you lots!:)

24 weeks (December 2017)

It's been awhile.
Like over a year since I last posted something here. I figured it was about time to update everyone. I announced that we were expecting a couple months ago and then left it at that. And several dear friends are asking for updates. And a lot is happening. 
So the quick (maybe not so quick) update is.. all is well! 

1. We're pregnant! (In case you didn't know). I am currently 24 weeks along with our miracle baby girl (Lucy)! We have had about 20ish ultrasounds and too many hours sitting in a waiting room to count. Being high risk is no joke. But I'm not complaining because we get to see our wiggly little girl almost every week!  When we first found out we were expecting (which is a whole post on it's own) we were given the option of genetic testing. After praying and fasting about this we decided to opt out. The test was a CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) where a needle would be inserted into to placenta to test the fluid and baby's DNA and that …

Charlotte May Hendrickson June 5, 2015

I'm going to start by saying I'm on heavy doses of Lortab and Tylenol. I'm seriously having a hard time making complete sentences but I want this to be out so you know what happened. From the beginning of this journey, Chris and I have felt like this has been such a "team" trial. We've had so much support and so many prayers offered on our behalf and that it's such a devastation to everyone that this happened. You are my team and I want you to be in on everything.

I honestly can't believe I'm sitting down at the computer and starting to write this out, again. Trying to explain what just happened, again. Trying to find the words to describe accurately how I feel. So here's my best.

I had felt her move very gently only three times on Wednesday so when I woke up on Thursday I went straight for the sugary cereal in hopes that would wake Charlotte up and get her moving. I ate and waited. I grabbed a cold water, drank half and …

Two, Four + Six years

Today is kinda a big day. Everything is hitting today. Our sweet Conor would have been two years old a week ago, Owen turned four and in a couple weeks Chris and I have been married for six years. That's a lot of anniversaries. Some great to remember and celebrate and some not. Everybody has those.

Our little buddy Conor would be TWO! See that muffin top down there? That's Conor not Cafe Rio, well maybe a little of both. Conor leaves some strange memories. Although we lost him, his soul, his body, I don't miss him. It that terrible or what?

After his early surprise delivery I was shocked, there's no doubt about that, but I almost immediately felt like he was a big, grown, man taking care of me. Owen didn't realize what was happening, well none of us did. He didn't ask about him everyday, he was just too young to understand. It just didn't seem like the end of the world. Everyone can handle a certain amount of pain and heartbreak right? Compared to Charlotte…
