They're adorable- love their accents.
You pay for tv here. $5/day.
I am back in the hospital and I really don't want anyone to know about it.
I don't want to be sick still, so let's just pretend that I'm not. Ok? I know I'm weird.
Really, I'm fine.
My aunt took me to her OB and he is great. The funniest New Yorker ever. He was thrilled to meet me at 5pm on a Friday afternoon. Poor guy. He's been a blessing- it's nice to have a dr I can trust while I'm desperately missing the doctors that I already trust.
I have another infection and some abdominal abscesses (pools of fluid they are not happy about).
My nurse says if it were serious I would be in more pain.
Except last time I had a very serious kidney infection, that was septic, and I wasn't in excruciating pain.
I think I'm just really used to abdominal pain.
For the first day I was completely quarantine. They thought I had c-diff (a pretty contagious bug). They made everyone wear gowns and gloves around me. I felt like a weirdo. I knew I didn't have that anyway, because my Oregon dr just tested me. My tests were negative, both times.
Really, I'm just bored laying here watching tv for a few days. It's not too bad. They pump me full of saline, antibiotics, and ct scan dye. So, I potty often.
My mom, my husband, my aunt and uncle are all caring for my kids. I'm afraid they are all exhausted and I think my mom is getting sick. It is great laying here watching stupid tv while they are all juggling my life.
Guess what else?
We have two cars- and Todd's is broken. It has been in the shop since we've been here. We finally got it back and it's still dumping antifreeze. Lovely.
Then, on Thursday night Jakob pushed our van window closed and it shattered.
So, two cars were down to none and I was being sent to the hospital.
Our house closing was supposed to be Friday but got moved to Monday.
AND, the hotel we were staying at was overbooked for the weekend, so we packed everything up and moved in with my aunt.
I'm grateful to be alive.
Grateful we caught this infection earlier than the last one.
I know I'll be fine, but it will just take some more time.
Next year, this year will be a really crazy story to tell.
Today, I just want to pretend I'm normal.
So, although I'm very thankful for your prayers, please leave me comments about, um, some cute quilt I made in a former life. Or, pretend my blog shows some fun thing I'm doing with my kids. Ok? We're pretending I'm fine.
Hope you were grateful that YOU got to put your kids to bed tonight.
Life is good!
"Oh, the ordinary day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me be grateful while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall fall upon my knees, or bury my face in the pillow, or lie among the sick, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
