That La Kid

wishin' an' hopin'!


on May 10, 2012

I picked up a sinus infection on Sunday evening.  Since Monday morning, I’ve felt like I’m dying.  I’m trying really hard not to be all fussy and whiny.  I’ve just been totally immobilized.  Yesterday I put in a prayer request at McLean and on facebook.  I think it’s paying off.  It might be coincidence.  It might be a placebo.  However, today I can taste a little bit and the congestion has moved out of my face (for the most part) and into my lungs.  I like it there.  I can handle it.  Just cough it up and spit it out, you know?  As opposed to blowing, and blowing, and blowing my nose to no avail.

Sunday will put us at 19 weeks, juuuuust about half way.  I don’t know if I’ll be around to post over the weekend.  Lots of stuff going on!  Haley is graduating from Bridgewater College on Saturday.  Sunday is Mother’s Day.   I have tons of crap to wrap.  I have to pack the truck.  I’d like to make some progress on cleaning up the house that I destroyed while I was sick.  (Imagine an atomic bomb constructed entirely out of tissues exploding in the middle of your living room, with high levels of radiation spreading to your bedroom as well.)

But here I am writing instead of doing.  I guess that’s my cue.  Bottom line, I’ve been sick, and fussy and haven’t enjoyed it.

Also of note, I haven’t put on any weight.  I am certainly carrying it differently, but I haven’t gained yet.   If feels normal, just feels like it did when I had the cyst.  I have to remind myself there’s a little critter in there.

Time to go!
