So after almost 2 weeks of being sick, 2 visits to the ER, IV therapy, being quarantined from my baby (this from Eric), needing my mom to come in and help, and a pile of homework…I am FINALLY getting better and showing some real progress! In case you haven’t heard, I have been sick with pneumonia. At first we thought that is was the flu since I was showing all the symptoms, but apparently there haven’t been any outbreaks in Utah yet so after not getting better and having a couple days of really high fevers Eric convinced me to go to the hospital and the diagnosis was made and drugs were given! Lucky for me I have an amazing husband who took care of both Mia and me for a whole week until my mom found out and took pity on us. Once again, my mother saved the day and took care of Mia (including getting up with her in the night), cleaned my house (at this point a big project), cooked dinners and took care of me so Eric could get caught back up on his school work.
Basically I love my mom and don’t know what I would do without her and I am hugely indebted to her, Eric, Mia who was extremely good through all of this and everyone else who helped out during this rather “low” period for me.
So to rise from this low Mia and I went home with mom a couple days early for Thanksgiving. Holiday plans for the next week include baking and eating lots of food, watching holiday movies, card makings, crafting, girls night watching the new Twilight, Turkey trot (a 5k that we made up that we’re making everyone we know join in so if you’re in Ely for Thanksgiving and feel like walking/running a 5k the day after Thanksgiving let me know!), family “Just Dance” dance off, cutting down Christmas trees, and hanging out with my crazy but much loved family! Mia plans on getting spoiled rotten…”literally”!
And I promise to take my camera out and capture these moments…if not for you then to just having something for Mia to have to remember her first Thanksgiving! (Good motivation right?!) In the mean time here are some pictures to get you by!
Mia now has teeth! Here is a good picture showing off her new front two teeth on the bottom.
Hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving Holiday!
