been a while
Been a while since I updated largely because I feel like H-E-double-hocky-sticks. So here's the basics:

  • I'm sick. Very sick. It's not pneumonia, thank G-d. It's bronchitis. And it WON'T GO AWAY. Nurse practitioner gave me an antibiotic and a steroid. Fun. Later, I got a doctor friend to call in a cough syrup for me (I'd originally told the NP that I didn't want a cough syrup b/c I hate them, and the guaifenisin made me feel worse than I started... I changed my mind after I realized there was no other way to keep the coughing under control).
  • Julian is coming over tonight without his grandparents for a few hours for the first time. I'm excited about this despite the fact that I feel like hell. I didn't want to cancel having him come over, because I figured that when we have him full time, I'll have to take care of him, whether I'm sick or not. And since I shouldn't be contagious anymore, so no excuses. We're looking forward to it anyway, so yay.
  • Lis took me baby shopping yesterday and then gave me a huge box and a huge bag full of baby clothes. Yay for Lis. We love Lis.
  • Kitten is getting big. Kitten is going to his new home after Jo and Cary's Halloween Party. Will miss kitten. Still, babies are cooler than kittens, and far less allergenic. Don't know why I'm speaking in sentence fragments. Not sure I care.
  • I've gotten myself into Journal work again this year for the synagogue banquet. I told them flat out that I wouldn't do it without a co-chair this year, though, because I just don't foresee having the time to shoulder the load by myself. Not with a one year old. Hopefully, co-chairing will work out well.
  • We'll take some pictures of Julian tonight, now that we know things are definite... or at least as definite as they'll get for the moment. If I can figure out how to post pictures, I'll post some.

Anyway, I guess that's all.

I hope you feel better. You get some rest. We'll figure out one of these days how to get together. I"ll pass the information to ellipticcurve, but I'll have her call you first to see how you are feeling.

Bronchitis? Yucky. I've had it once, and I certainly don't remember describing it as fun. The coughing's the worst part. Hope Julian's visit cheers you up ... and refuah shleimah!

I'm sorry to hear about the bronchitis, but that's a lot less bad than pneumonia, so that's something. Did they give you an ETA on recovery?

Good luck with the visit tonight!

Hope you feel better. You probably already know this, but be careful and get lots of rest. Bronchitis can still go into pneumonia (I am speaking from direct experience here.)

I'm very happy for you and Seth about the baby. Just take it one day at a time, and be ready for either outcome in a year. Either way, you are doing a great thing for this little boy and his family!
