Well, it has been an action packed couple of days!! Where to start?? At the beginning I suppose...
Well, my sister went into labor at about 12:30am Wednesday morning. She had Lark Kalynne Wall at 1:30pm the same day. Lark was 8lbs 11oz., and 20 1/2 inches long. She's got a head full of dark hair, and Mom says she looks like her daddy, but I haven't made up my mind yet. Ask me in a few months, when the rate of Change has at least slowed down a little. There were no complications, except a really sucky anesthesiologist, so she got stuck a total of FIVE TIMES with that big ole long needle, and had to stay still, in heavy labor, for forty-five minutes. Can you IMAGINE???? Yuck!! But mom and baby are fine, they're home already, and doing well.
I had an appointment with my good doctor, the one I've been going to since I was ten, on Wednesday. Very serendipitous, since he's in the same town as my sister's hospital, so I was able to just nip over after the appointment and visit her and my new niece. My doctor is just simply wonderful. He decided to put me back on antibiotics...for the next three months. He believes in a more aggressive approach with this particular disease. Not a moment too soon as well, because the day after I saw him, and he pronounced his prognosis, I got sick again. Yup, that was yesterday. I'm feeling better today, but really really tired. I lost all ground with my stamina, but I am on orders to start exercising gently 4-5 times a week asap, so I intend to gain that ground back. I'm sick of being....well, sick.
So, mostly good news!! I'm really excited for my sister, and my new niece. One down and one to go Renae! (who, for those of you who don't know, is my sister-in-law, and she's due June 28) I'm excited to finally be in good medical hands, and have the end of this nightmare in sight. Soon, maybe in as little as three months, I'll have my life back!! Hurray!!
