One of those weeks....

All I can say is that it has been one of those weeks. I came down with a terrible cold and haven't gotten out of bed/off the couch in days- which has left Xander to terrorize me house which now means it is a total disaster area! Then I finally summon up the courage to check my email and all there is is bad new and more bad news- well it isn't all bad but still.... One of Frank and my friends from PC has a daughter about a month ago who had Meconium Aspiration Syndrome and has been in the NICU since she was born, first on a ventilator and then ECMO. She is hanging in there which is the good news, seeing as a week ago things looked pretty grim. But then I found out one of my fellow DSDers suffered an amniotic fluid embolus during labor and is now in the ICU and it is unclear at this point whether or not she will survive- and her baby did not. She has 8 children at home and the mere thought that those kids could lose their mother just makes me feel ill! So please if you read this send some prayers out for Carri and her family! And after finding out about Carri, I learned that another good friend of mine had a kitchen fire and they are staying in a hotel while their house is being cleaned of smoke damage... I think I will just retreat back to my bed and bury my head in the sand for awhile longer.

But before I do in other news the farm finally has a truck! Frank and I are now the proud owners of a GMC Sierra 3500 crew cab pickup truck- it is seriously one of the biggest fricking pick-ups I have ever seen and it is a dually so it's wide too. It won't even fit in our garage it is so long! I'll post pix when I have them.
