sisters, i am ever so sorry i haven't been contributing like i normally do (because i'm SURE you are missing out on my minimal wit!) i have been a little under the weather for a little over a week. i went to my doc last week (one that i used to work for) and basically i have a sinus infection. (and i'm having to suffer through it without a decongestant. more on that in a second.) but it's caused me to lose my voice. that, friends, is something that may have only happened one other time in my life!! it has been strange. but when micah gets home, i have tried to milk it by going on "voice rest". although when i went on my date with him this past saturday and with hillary last night, i kind of broke that rule. well, what am i saying? i break it all the time. who would i be if i couldnt' holler at my fellas? anyway, during that visit, she noticed my heart rate was fast. well, i won't lie. i'm in shape. you know...that kind of shape that is round. and my heart rate has always been kind of fast. but it was 120. beats per minute. yeah. she went through the whole EKG thing and everything. of course, it was normal, just really fast. but it concerned her enough she wouldn't give me a decongestant. so prednisone it is. and prednisone typically makes you gain weight. fortunately it was a low dose. i mean i just went back to my WW meetings this past weekend. how is that gonna help? well, she also decided to check my thyroid and other blood work. how bout this...i have hyperthyroidism!! i am not even lucky enough to have the side effect of weight loss. i mean, is there a sign on my ample hiney that says kick me when i'm down? frus---stration. anywho, because of the symptom of tachycardia, i have to start on a medicine three times a day. and it's a medicine that slows everything down. i'm not not not a happy girl. but i have to do it. i am thinking it is postpartum thyroiditis. which will sometimes then go into hypothyroidism. FUN. seriously...if you aren't 30 yet...run and HIDE!!!
i have things i need to tell you. i went on a girl date and a boy date. i loved them both. but also, my camera battery has decided to die and even the batteries i tried to snake out of my kids toys seem to be dead. so i have no pics to share yet. in the mean time, thank you so much for praying for my friends and friends of friends. if you have a request, please feel free to email me. there is nothing i'd like better to do with my time. please see their blogs for updates. God is certainly showing out in healing these babies!!
