my allergies are really bothering me. it's like I can't hear anything normal and my own voice is gonging in my head. not a good feeling I have doubled up on allergy meds in hopes of shaking the way it is feeling.
lots for folks to pray about for me if you think of it. I really need God's help through this hard time in my life and in this pregnancy.
I am thankful for a great husband who is seeing me through all of this and for a wonderful sister who has done so much as well. she left today to go back to GA. she will probably come back some time though to help me some more. I am thankful for her. Her car was broken into while she was here which I feel terrible for her. but these things happen. hopefully they won't happen to her again. she has been a saint.

I got flowers today from Maura (yay) from my mom and dad (yay) and from Heather and the Groves (yay). They are lovely and I am enjoying them. I am blessed.
I've had more visitors too and that was of course nice. just glad to see the time go by.
thanks for all the well wishes and prayers.

not sure when I'll ever get to leave this place, but really....I kind of like it here. other people take care of me, they give me magic drugs, I order room service and get yummy food...what's not to like? besides the obvious I mean :)
I am also realizing how strange it is going to be to have a tummy. I mean. I have never had a tummy....maybe a little extra layer but never a tummy. and now it has begun. I feel like I need to suck in but that's really futile.
I met the tennessee titans today, well two of them. I don't know who they were but if you read my husbands blog he posted a pic and who they are. I am so not sporty. but it was fun.
I'm missing the sara groves concert right now but there is a chance she and heather will visit tomorrow (oh my horrid looking hair) which would be a nice treat. i like them both so much.
I had a lovely chaplain lady stop in and pray for me today too, she was soooo sweet and full of Jesus.
Tom Tindale from church here in nash also visited, he was fun. Filled me in on what I was missing this week with the staff outting, sounds like it was fun.
this is my interesting life! gonna go try to eat something now I guess :)
I was admitted yesterday and will be here till tomorrow for sure and maybe longer. Turned out I had a kidney infection and severe dehydration. It is nice to be here and have others taking care of me. I was so weak when I came in. They said I was "dry as a bone". So IV's endless IV's.
I am sad I will miss the sara groves concert tonight but I am happy to be alive! My sister is coming to town for the concert, her and lance will go with out me. It is a blessing though that she is here in town because Lance will have to go back to work and she'll be able to drive me home and entertain me. haha. little does she know!
well, that's about it for an update. I think that this hospital here is a great place to be, they are very efficient and my baby doctor comes to see me too. I am in good hands.
And if you read this and happen to pray, I would appreciate it of course.

I am meeting lance at the hotel again tonight and have a pool waiting for me which I am happy about. so something to look forward to is great.

I was pretty nervous attending. Large crowds of people I don't know and am expected to make small talk with can tire me out pretty quick. Of course we met some lovely people and had a nice time but I was still pretty tired when it was all done. I tend towards being an introvert. My energy is gathered being alone or with one or two close friends, crowds drain me.
I have several friends who are the opposite, they could go to gatherings all day long and more in the evening and they feel energized from being around people and give them a new person and they can barely contain their giddiness. They usually find me to be an anomaly and ask me a lot of questions about why I am the way I am. It's hard to explain and I don't really understand them but what I do know is that everyone is different and that is okay. I force myself to put a smile on and go to things like this and rarely regret it, they aren't bad, just need some quiet time after to get back to good :)

I did talk to my mom for a while tonight and a girlfriend who is getting married next year who I have not caught up with nearly enough lately. So a little outside communication was a good thing too.
Here in Nash we have Orkin cause bugs are a big deal I guess...well, they also help you catch mice...with sticky traps...they are all over my house. i told lance that if we catch one while he's gone I could not deal with it. I know my limits. He arranged for a friend I could call if needed. Well. I made the call.
Yucky little dead mouse stuck to the trap and not dead yet. I could just puke. And these days, it doesn't take much.
hopefully it's the last mouse we'll catch. unless they are getting in somehow we haven't figured and orkin hasn't figured. I am praying it's the last. I don't do sticky traps.
not the nicest thing to blog about but it's keeping me rather trapped in the living room right now cause I can't stand going into the kitchen, hopefully the help will arrive soon and it will be a memory.
it's dead and gone. glory. thank heaven for nice neighbors who grew up on ranches.

we've done some fun stuff lately but the tired factor keeps me from blogging a lot. you can always read my husbands blog right now, he's doing a much better job at keeping the information highway buzzing with things we are doing. he's even been updating my facebook status.
it was fun to hear the baby heart beat. i dang well better have a healthy kid after everything it's putting me through. I finally got a prescription for hear burn meds and our insurance didn't cover it, I could have cried. I'm sure it will cover something else and in the end it will work out but i was sad it didn't happen when I thought. the heart burn is miserable and I think probably half the cause of my troubles.
well, enough about me. leave a comment and tell me how you are all doing!

one thing I have little experience with is boredom. I can usually find something to do. but I guess when it's a new city and no friends really to speak of this is what I get. even if I had friends I'd probably bore them right now with all this talk of puking and no energy to walk across the room. maybe i can get lance to take me somewhere today. a movie? a book store? a park? I really don't care as long as I don't have to wear make up. I'm not that bored.

I went to the grocery store today by myself. I didn't pass out and I didn't puke so I consider it a success. It's almost 4 now and I am a little bored. so I decided to blog and bore everyone else with me :) I'll go now.
