Well, the docs managed to get Breezy's labor stopped and she has been sent home with orders for bed rest for at least the next week. She is feeling much better and hopefully we have a couple more weeks before Christian arrives.
Kevin and I didn't do much today. I spent the day getting this house scrubbed down and Kevin went for his two walks and then just generally lay around the rest of the day. We did watch some tv together (we are watching the Indiana Jones movies consecutively), but that's really it. It was just a very boring day.
I am going to answer a few questions tonight though. I am so far behind.
Hallie - I see it's cold and windy up there in PA, but let me tell you - it's only 39 degrees here right now. It's been downright cold, but at least Kevin and I had hot cocoa with marshmallow fluff tonight. Still, I'm sure it's much yuckier up there... How's your husband doing?
Bryan - thanks for taking care of the water leak. I knew when the bill more than doubled that something was wrong. I will call Chris tomorrow and discuss the bill. Say 'hi' to JT for us!
Jessica - I had my sister bring my fake tree when they came at Thanksgiving. We decorated it last weekend so it's all ready to go. I have heard that real trees are quite expensive here, but that's coming from someone who lived near the "Christmas Tree Capital of the World" - Indiana, PA - where they were pretty cheap.
Jessica - you also mentioned about the woman who woke up speaking with a foreign accent - that is actually very common in this experience. Do you guys remember the roommate that Kevin got while in Tampa for the one night? The guy that threw his pants at me and was screaming at me and Kevin the whole time? Well, he woke up speaking Spanish. He hadn't been able to speak any other languages but English before his injury, but he couldn't understand a word of English for a while. From what I gather, this is also common. It has always made me wonder about the possibility of reincarnation. I mean...how else can you wake up as a completely different person speaking a different language altogether?
Nicolette, go for it. Kevin was in the Army as part of The Herd - 173rd Airborne Brigade Special Troops Battalion (I sure hope I got that last part right). He is now discharged.
Speaking of...Leslie - Kevin got his hat and shirt! Love them both! Thanks so much!!
Aggie - woohoo!!!! Call me after you get home from work either Mon, Wed or Friday while Kevin is in therapy if you can. We'll catch up then!
Ok - I know there are so many more than need commented on, but I am going to sign off and go read for a while.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
