Tell me something good…..

I got to do this last night. Nonna snuggles Willa.jpeg
I think Papa would be over the moon with this little bug….I got a video of her last night. When I started rubbing her right cheek….the left side of her face went up into a a big smile.

Made my night.

Your turn! Tell me……….something fun that has happened to you in the last 3 days.

Anything else????

Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a heart rhythm condition that can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats. These rapid heartbeats might trigger a sudden fainting spell or seizure. In some cases, the heart can beat erratically for so long that it causes sudden death.

You can have a genetic mutation that puts you at risk of being born with congenital long QT syndrome. In addition, certain medications, imbalances of the body’s salts and minerals (electrolyte abnormalities), and medical conditions might cause acquired long QT syndrome.

Long QT syndrome is treatable. You might need to take medications to prevent an erratic heart rhythm. In some cases, treatment for long QT syndrome involves surgery or an implantable device.

You’ll also need to avoid certain medications that could trigger your long QT syndrome. After treatment, you likely can live and thrive, even with this condition. You may be able to continue being active in recreational — and even competitive — sports.

But she has responded to meds perfectly and is on her way home………….I hope. As of 11am she was to be discharged…….FINGERS CROSSED!

She text me last night.

Prayers please…..?

….or happy thoughts, good vibes….whatever trips your trigger, floats your boat or makes your world go ’round…….

Preeclampsia…………..

Formerly called toxemia, preeclampsia is a condition that pregnant women develop. It’s marked by high blood pressure in women who haven’t had high blood pressure before. Preeclamptic women will have a high level of protein in their urine and often also have swelling in the feet, legs, and hands. This condition usually appears late in pregnancy, though it can happen earlier.

If undiagnosed, preeclampsia can lead to eclampsia, a serious condition that can put you and your baby at risk, and in rare cases, cause death. Women with preeclampsia who have seizures are considered to have eclampsia.

Megann has this this morning. Only when Willa nurses on her left side. But it will prevent her from coming home this afternoon. Starting tonight, we are to get a snow storm. Go figure huh?

Nonna is getting run ragged by a 5 year old that ‘just wants Mom and Dad home…..and …….what’s her name again???’

Yesterday….

…..I felt like I had been hit by a truck. Then he backed up and hit me again. Started at 4am with running to the loo every freaking 20-30 minutes, at 7 I finally text the boss telling him I would not be in.

I laid on the couch all day feeling like death warmed over watching mindless stuff on Netflix. Finally at 9pm I took a Tylenol PM and a tension headache, hit the pillow and died.

Today……….much better.

home 5
I’ve been looking online for the type of house I would like to buy when I move back to Minnesota. It’s called a Craftsman. I really like that porch all the way across the front.

home 3.jpg
I really like the way it looks. This one is cool because it has a fireplace.
home 7.jpg
I think this one is my favorite. Even has a fireplace! Too bad I don’t have a CLUE where this house is! I expect munchkins to come flying out the door at any moment……..I just hope I can find something I like…..I want a front porch. I want to sit and watch things happen in my yard when the G’kids are there.
house 3
This one is FAR too close to civilization. I want to be back in the boonies where no one can bother me. But I do love the look of this one. It looks…….comfortable.

All I want is 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a few acres. Is that too much to ask for? In California or New York? Yes. In the Midwest? Not really……

So….inquiring minds want to know….

…how my date went Saturday afternoon. Well, lemme tell ya………..

-doesn’t like crowds.

-asking me about how I knew I had diabetes. (free medical?)

-Asked how I deal with Anxiety…………I don’t. I just do what needs to be done and I don’t waste time and energy on it. That’s what I was taught growing up. When you grow up on a farm, it’s how you are. When you have an angry animal coming at you, you react.

-flirts then backs off. Doesn’t follow through so I’m not sure what it is he wants.

-NOT 53 as profile states but 60. Which is neither here nor there. He’s a good looking man. LONG hair. NICE smile.

-wants to get together again. Interesting. Hasn’t stated when yet…..

-insistent I get a cortisone shot for my chest. Altho after throwing wood in Sunday afternoon, I feel MUCH better. It’s been suggested scar tissue is making things a bit painful and I’m thinking that is correct. Frankly I am amazed at how much less I hurt. The pile in the back is about 6′ tall so that is a healthy pile in there again now. wood pile—and now the weather has turned crappy so I think I’ll be leaving early. One last order to put in and I think I’ll be shutting down.

I’d rather it snowed. Because now, with it icy? daughter is SURE to go into labor…..yay!!
