Oh my. It's been a crazy 48 hours!
We went to open house on Tuesday evening and Jesse, my BIL, started complaining of sharp stomach pains. His mom said that she was having them the day before and since he looked kinda nervous I honestly figured it was just gas, but we weren't there 20 minutes before he wanted to go home. So we took him home and about 30 minutes later his mom calls and says that she's taking him to the emergency room. We still thought that Jesse was laying it on a little thick because he was too nervous to switch schools but didn't want to disappoint everyone...
A couple of hours later we get a frantic phone call from his mom at the hospital saying that they're transferring him to H'ville's Woman's & Children's hospital and that they think he has E. coli. My poor in laws thought that it was untreatable for some reason and they were totally freaking out. (as would anyone if they thought their son had an incurable disease...) So long story short, Jeremy and I ended up staying up most of the night with his family in the hospital, Jesse just has some sort of weird stomach bug, we're not moving because he doesn't want to switch schools, and I'm T-totally exhausted from all of it! :o)
I still had to work yesterday because there was no one here to cover for me, but I managed to sleep a little during my lunch break, so it wasn't too horrible. And I was really disappointed that we're not going to move, but I realized that it was God's will. It was really beginning to feel like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, but unfortunately, when I really want something I keep blindly pushing forward despite all obstacles. Jesse really did lead us on, but I'm not upset at him. I really thought that this would be a good thing for all of us, but God knows better than we do - and this hit me so hard on Tuesday that there's no denying the fact that God was doing a little finger waging at me. Yet another lesson learned! There's been sooo many this year!! :o)
I WI this morning and was up 2 pounds. I really am not surprised, but I've got to find a way to get it back in control. Between being sick and getting away with eating what I wanted because I wasn't eating much, stress eating and then exhaustion eating I've not had an OP day in a couple of weeks. So I'm just trying to get back in the saddle. I just really don't want to, you know? ;o) Well, it must be done!
I hope you all have wonderful OP days! I'm gonna go see what I missed yesterday!
