Wanna See Something Pitiful?

Hanna awoke this morning running a 103.6 degree temperature and vomiting. Will and I took her to the doctor right away. She assured us it was something viral and just to take her home to get some rest. If not better in the morning to take her for blood work. Well, the day progressed and so did Hanna's temperature. She vomited the entire day and finally at 2pm when I took her temperature it was 105 degrees. I called the doctor and she said, "Take her to the ER asap". So I called Will crying, he came home, and we took our baby to the ER. Her temperature was 104 and they were having diffuculty bringing it down. The nurses and doctors were phenomenal. They gave Hanna IV fluids, antibiotics, and anti-nauseu medicine. Hanna never even budged when they drew her blood and gave her an IV. She was out of it. And hour and half later when she came too, she wanted to know where the IV came from. We spent 6 hours at the ER, and the blood results showed a serious case of Strep Throat. She never even complained of a sore throat!? Hanna's white blood count was over 40,000. Normal is 5,000-10,000. Her body was fighting so hard. I praise God that we got her to the ER when we did. She is doing great now. She will be sleeping next to momma tonight though!

How many more days....

Until Red Sox Season 2009 begins...77! Just in case you might be wondering. If you are looking for me on April 6th, I can be found at home, in front of the TV, with my beloved Ellsbury shirt on. You can't miss me.

Jacoby Augusta

Jacoby has a habit of hording his toys. He will take all 6 or 7 of them and cluster them together. He will search the house until all the toys have been found and gathered. Here he couldn't decide which he wanted to chew on, so he had two of them in his mouth. He is truly one of the smartest dogs I know....most of the time.

Asheville Bound

I am leaving for a girls trip in a couple of days with two of my very good friends. One of whom I haven't seen in 3 years. We are heading Asheville NC. Land of grits and sweet tea. Not exactly sure how this type of "diet" is going to play a part in my new Weight Watchers lifestyle, but we shall see. I do believe that grits are listed as a filling food though. Wonder about those sweet potato pancakes I saw listed at the Tupelo Honey Cafe? I must remain strong! I am certain that my southern roots will rear their ugly head and I will return to the north saying "ya'll" and "buggy". It will again take my dear friend Kate many many months to break me from the habit of calling a shopping cart a buggy. Sorry Kate, I apologize in advance. If anyone has been to the area and has any recommendations as to how three girls can find some fun or an excellent place to eat, please pass it along. Please pray for traveling mercies as I will be traveling with my friend Sandi, who just might be even more directionally challenged than myself. Happy trials Ya'll!
