Call, Brad's Birthday & a night in the hospital...

Friday started off as a bitter sweet day...it was Brad's birthday, but he was on call in the surgical ICU. Luckily his parents had come in town the day before to help me out since life has been pretty tough lately with the whole being sick thing & taking care of Jack while Brad works, works, works. Anyways, I started getting pretty sick Thursday night and stayed pretty sick all day Friday until I ended up in the ER for dehydration. It was lovely. After the blood work was ran it showed I was pretty dried up, so I was admitted for the night to continue IV fluids and phenergan for the nausea. I am so thankful Brad's parents were here to take care of Jack since Brad was on call & I was out of commission. I knew Jack was well taken care of and completely content with Nana and PopPop, and that was a great feeling. I was discharged Saturday and sent home with all kinds of good meds. Brad even brought home all the supplies to give me IV fluids at home if needed, so next time I don't have to spend hours after hours in the ER. The past few days have been interesting, and I'm definitely feeling better. My plans are to head back to Lake Charles with Brad's parents to spend a few weeks to get more help with Jack...I'm not quite ready to be on my own just yet. Thank goodness for family!

Oh...while in the hospital I got an ultrasound which was pretty awesome. Since I've been so sick I've been a little worried about the baby. We got to see him/her and hear the heartbeat! We haven't done a dating ultrasound yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm 8 weeks 3 days! It was definitely a relief to see that there was a little baby in there who appeared to being doing just fine despite how I've been doing! Lots of thanks to God and all the miracles he works!

Oh the things that let us know we're still pregnant! Let me know when you come in town. God knew you could handle that... He knows to keep me out of the hospital... still nursing. YIKES!
