Can a Girl Catch a Break?

Well, thankfully, the nausea is gone. YAY!!! Wednesday was horrible, yesterday was better, and today I'm feeling better still (the nausea anyway). I still have bad headaches, but at least I can reasonably take care of my own child. That's a good thing.

I saw the Digestive and Liver Specialist yesterday. It went pretty well. The fact that I could possibly get pregnant sometime soon was the biggest concern regarding my treatment. We decided to put me on a medication for only a few weeks to get my stomach calmed down. I can live with that; I just don't want to be taking a medication forever for it. I go back in about 3 weeks to re-evaluate the situation.

And, now, I think I might have a bladder or kidney infection. *sigh* I've been ignoring a few signs for a while that are getting worse. It's not terribly painful, but I think I need to have it checked out before it is. I've been drinking more water than usual this week, so I thought it might correct itself. It hasn't. So, back to the doctor I go. I went almost the whole first year of Caleb's life without going to the doctor for an illness. I guess I'm just making up for it now.

Maybe one of these days I'll be all healthy and feel good again. Hopefully soon.

In other news, my MIL is here with us. She's doing a talk at a community college near here and is staying with us this weekend. We're so excited because we haven't seen her since early August of last year (that's what happens when she lives almost 16 hours from here). We both have web cams, so Caleb thinks she lives in the computer; it's good for them to spend some time together!

And have you seen the new site that Shannon and Chilihead have put together? It's called Blogging Basics 101, and it's a great resource, especially for new bloggers (or those of us who have been blogging for a year and still have a lot to learn!).

I completely forgot about your dr. appt. yesterday. I'm glad it went well. Hopefully, your bladder/kidney infection will get better soon. Those are the worst!

So sorry you have been having such a rough time of it lately. Hopefully you are over the worst and will be back to normal soon!

I'll be thinking of you during these next few weeks. I hope that you heal soon and can start concentrating on getting pregnant. =) Hang in there!!

Hope the medicine will do the trick for your tummy troubles and that you got some good drugs for your bladder infection (those are no fun at all!) I will pray that all the health problems will clear up quickly and you can get on to the baby making activities! :0)

Yuck, I'm sorry you guys have been so sick! Ugh. I pray that you will all (you especially!) be feeling much better soon. May the Lord give wisdom to the docs and help you to be patient. I hate to hear that you aren't feeling well!

I tried to call you this morning, but it sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. I would love to talk to you sometime if you have a chance to call.

By the way, Dave and I watched the movie you sent in our box called "The Christmas Shoes". I have to tell you, Jenn, we were both a total blubbering mess as we watched that! Dave said at one point toward the end, "I don't think I've ever been so sad", and I honestly felt like my heart was just breaking. We had a tearful conversation afterwards about our parents dying and how hard it will be to handle that. So thanks for the movie, and we liked it... but maybe you should have warned us first? :-)

I love you!

If it's not one thing it's another, huh? Glad you are feeling better as far as the nausea and glad your appointment went well. Do not wait too long for the possible bladder infection. You wait to long and it can lead to excruciating pain... believe me, I know!!

Praying you feel 100% better SOON!!!
